The last weekend shake-up is in full swing.  I think our top 4 seeds are locked in, though Oregon could definitely make a run at the final one seed with a win over Arizona.

On the bubble, I continue to take Rhode Island over Syraucse.  The RPI rankings aren't even close between the two.  

The Big Ten's only hope to get a a top-4 seed is Minnesota, who play's Michigan in the semifinal today.

The bubble has definitely shrunk.  I feel confident that every team I have in not named Rhode Island is safe.  I think it's a toss up right now between Rhode Island and Syracuse - of which RPI favors the Rams.

Next Bracket: Tomorrow, March 12 by 5:15pm
