NCAA Bracket (1st Update)

Feast week was awesome! A lot of really good early tournaments, the Maui title game was the icing on the cake (honorable mention Kansas/Tennessee). Much has changed since my first bracket, but we still have a long way to go. The NET rankings came out today, and I used them very minimally for my projections as it is way too early to come to any conclusions. First glance, road wins seem to have a little more weight than they did in the RPI.

Here is my way to early 2019 bracket

1 Seed-  Duke, Kansas, Virginia, Gonzaga +1

2 Seed- Tennessee, North Carolina -1, Nevada +1, Michigan St. +1
