Selection Sunday is approaching fast, and as the major conference tournaments enter full swing our projection of the field of 68 is gradually gaining clarity. The in-or-out intrigue is reserved for the Bubble Watch, which we will be updating daily during Championship Week. The Bracket Watch, which we’ll also be updating daily, is focused on the seeding discussion as that changes with each passing day as the conference tournament results roll in.
Only one automatic bid was handed out on Wednesday night, as Bucknell blasted Colgate to cap a dominant run through the Patriot League, and that will do it for official dance tickets until Saturday, when a slew of conferences wrap up their tournaments. There’s still plenty to be decided before then, as bubble teams such as Notre Dame, Louisville and Marquette attempt to play their way into the field and certain tournament teams take the court knowing one bad loss could doom them to an unfavorable seeding. Below, the latest projection for how the 2018 bracket will look.
