2017-18 Bracketology: Games Thru Wed, Feb 21 - Seton Hall-Providence Update


The Seton Hall @ Providence game began yesterday evening but did not finish yesterday evening! It was completed today. The below seed list has been updated to include this result. 

Seton Hall picks up a Quadrant 1 win and moves from #41 (11 seed) to #34 (9 seed). As this jump suggests, the margins between seeds in this neighborhood are razor thin.

Providence, on the other hand, loses a key home game. Before this game they were my 2nd team out. Now they're my 5th team out. 

This re-shuffling assumes the following:

-Desi Rodriguez, who slipped on the court and suffered an ankle injury, doesn't miss significant time.
-The selection committee considers this game just like any other game.
