The massive information in school basketball on Saturday was that Baylor picked up its first lack of the season in a spot that has all the time been a home of horrors for the Bears. Kansas knocked off Baylor on the Phog 71-58, dropping the Bears to 1-18 lifetime in that constructing.

The loss strikes Baylor right down to No. 3 total behind Michigan, who defeated slumping Indiana 73-57 in Bloomington on Saturday.

Bracketology prime seeds

Take a look at Palm’s newest bracket, full subject of 68 and all of the groups on the bubble on the Bracketology hub.

The brand new crew within the bracket on Sunday is North Carolina. The Tar Heels shook off a tough first half to come back again and beat Florida State 78-70. That’s North Carolina’s finest win of the season, and helped erase the sting of a loss to Marquette on Wednesday. The Tar Heels took benefit of an at-large spot opening up when North Texas misplaced, making Western Kentucky the C-USA automated qualifier within the bracket and liberating up a spot.

It is not North Carolina’s spot within the bracket that was saved, nevertheless; the Tar Heels have been stepping into anyway. The crew that had its spot saved is the final crew in: Drake. The Bulldogs misplaced at Bradley to finish the common season, lacking out on an opportunity to tie for the MVC common season title and get the No. 1 seed in Arch Insanity. The Bulldogs have been decimated by damage on the finish of the season, and it has been all they’ll do to hold on.

Duke might have taken a spot as properly, however the Blue Devils fell at house to Louisville in time beyond regulation. They’d have been among the many final 4 in with a victory.

With convention tournaments getting began, I’ll start utilizing the highest seed within the convention match as the automated qualifier as soon as that’s decided. Furman dropped out of the bracket and was changed by UNC Greensboro within the Southern Convention. Navy, which is undefeated within the Patriot League, changed Colgate within the bracket at the moment. The Midshipmen should win on Sunday of their regular-season finale to carry on to that spot.

So, sure, I’ve the No. 10 crew within the NET out of the sector. Patriot League crew rankings this season are meaningless as a result of solely Military and Navy performed nonconference video games, they usually simply performed 4 every.
