3/9 Men's Basketball Bracketology Breakdown

Tennessee vs. Arkansas Men's College Basketball

Last Eight In: Saint Joseph’s, California, Tennessee, Providence, Colorado, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Xavier

First Eight Out: Minnesota, Florida State, St. John’s, Dayton, Arkansas, Missouri, Louisiana Tech, Green Bay

If you thought last week was fun, just wait. There are #1 seeds yet to be decided and the bubble is a mess. The SEC and Big East seemingly have a bid or two available for a handful of teams on the bubble. Tennessee and Arkansas will likely play each other in the quarterfinals and that could basically be an NCAA Tournament play-in game. Missouri is not completely out of the picture either, but they have to get past Texas A&M in the second and round and, likely, beat Florida in the quarterfinals to have a shot. In the Big East the #4/#5 game will be the one to watch. Like Tennessee and Arkansas in the SEC, Providence and St. John’s could basically be playing for an NCAA Tournament spot on Thursday afternoon.
