Now that we are getting closer, I’m going to try and do two updates a week. Nevada getting a win @Boise St. really strengthens their case, and all but crushes Boise St.’s chances. I think they have to win the conference tournament to get in. Providence, Florida St., and Missouri all had big wins as well. The only change in the top 16 I have is West Virginia leap frogging Oklahoma.
