With so many conference tournament games going on yesterday, it would probably take three posts to catch you up on all the seed reshuffling. Instead, I’ll give you only the highlights, but look around to see if your favorite team moved.

Both Syracuse and Kansas suffered big upsets and now are in jeopardy of losing their position at the top of one of the brackets. On here, Syracuse survives but Kansas gets bumped down to a 2-seed for projected Big Ten champion Michigan State. Also benefiting from these losses will be the winner of the ACC assuming it is either Duke or UNC. On this projection it remains UNC.

Temple was the other noteworthy upset and their loss to UMass costs them to slide down one. Florida replaces them in the 4X4 chart. Most likely either St. Louis or Xavier are now going to win the A-10 and the eventual champion could still profit by moving up.

It turns out my Mid-Major love was short-lived as tournament developments yesterday forced me to bump both UCF and Drexel off the bracket. UCF got absolutely manhandled by a surging Memphis team and Drexel gets bumped out due to two teams from the PAC-12 now projected in. I still don’t like the thought of California making the tournament, however, and I hope I am wrong.

Finally, we have a couple of fresh faces in the bottom of the bracket. New Mexico State and Arizona become projected conference champions as Nevada and California both lost late last night.
