3/13 recap

Big 12 semifinals:
Kansas 62, Baylor 52 - big, because Maryland and Notre Dame are charging for their spot on the 2 line
Iowa St 67, Oklahoma 65 - I think the final pecking order is going to be ISU > OU > BU > WVU for these Big 12 teams

ACC semifinals:
North Carolina 71, Virginia 67 - I don't think UNC can get all the way to the 3 line; it's pretty crowded there.  A win tomorrow might make me change my mind
Notre Dame 74, Duke 64 - well, things just got complicated on the 1 line.  I gotta think about this

Pac-12 semifinals:
Arizona 70, UCLA 64 - and now, UCLA waits.  I think their fate hinges on what happens in the American tomorrow
Oregon 67, Utah 64 - Utah bleeding seed lines everywhere now

Big East semifinals:
Villanova 63, Providence 61 - Nova has to be #2 overall, right?
Xavier 65, Georgetown 63 - X to the 7 line?

Big 10 quarterfinals:
Wisconsin 71, Michigan 60 - and now the stakes are high for Wisky thanks to the ACC losses
Purdue 64, Penn St 59 - and Purdue gets into a no-loss game against Wisky.  Well done
Maryland 75, Indiana 69 - the 2 line still in play for Maryland, but Kansas isn't cooperating
Michigan St 76, Ohio St 67

SEC quarterfinals:
Kentucky 64, Florida 49
Auburn 73, LSU 70 (OT) - dear God, what do we do with LSU now?
Arkansas 80, Tennessee 72
Georgia 74, South Carolina 62

American quarterfinals:
SMU 74, East Carolina 68
Temple 80, Memphis 75 - Temple's season now down to one game, against SMU
Tulsa 59, Houston 51
UConn 57, Cincinnati 54 - UConn just popped Tulsa's bubble.  Tulsa needed the quality win chance against Cincy and are denied

A-10 quarterfinals:
Davidson 67, LaSalle 66
VCU 70, Richmond 67
Dayton 75, St Bonaventure 71
Rhode Island 71, George Washington 58 - we'll deal with URI's at-large candidacy if they beat Dayton.  I don't think they're there yet

MW semifinals:
Wyoming 71, Boise St 66 (OT) - I think Boise is okay with the attrition elsewhere
San Diego St 56, Colorado St 43 - and now, CSU waits

CUSA semifinals:
Middle Tennessee 53, UTEP 50 - impact on the NIT bubble
UAB 72, Louisiana Tech 62 (OT) - there goes a NIT spot.  CUSA's going to have a seeding problem for their champion

MAC semifinals:
Central Michigan 75, Toledo 66
Buffalo 68, Akron 59 - Buffalo should be safe for the NIT now, and

Southland semifinals:
Stephen F Austin 91, Northwestern 79 - hidden storyline:  SFA is in bubble play if they lose tomorrow
Sam Houston St 70, Texas A&M-CC 67

Big West semifinals:
Hawaii 65, UC-Davis 58
UC-Irvine 72, UC-Santa Barbara 63 (OT)

Big Sky semifinals:
Eastern Washington 91, Sacramento St 83
Montana 61, Northern Arizona 59

Sun Belt quarterfinals:
Louisiana-Lafayette 53, Texas St 43
Louisiana-Monroe 77, South Alabama 59

MEAC semifinals:
Delaware St 63, North Carolina Central 57 - just a stupid, stupid upset, and your MEAC champion will be the #68 team on the S-Curve this year
Hampton 75, Norfolk St 64 - and of course the competent 2 seed goes down too

SWAC semifinals:
Southern 68, Alabama St 66
Texas Southern 90, Prairie View A&M 77 - and TSU has the SWAC bid thanks to Southern and ASU being ineligible.  Good job SWAC

WAC semifinals:
New Mexico St 57, Cal St-Bakersfield 53
Seattle 69, UMKC 63

I was looking around and some people have UNC moving to the 3 with a win over ND and X on the 5 line even with a loss to Nova. Some have both Duke/Virginia down to a 2 and Wisky/Nova/Zona on the 1.

It's kind of complicated on the 1 line now. Duke has better profile over Virginia but H2H isn't supposed to matter its always the whole resume and Virginia won the regular season and has the committee ever put a team on the 1 line who didn't win at least 1 of the regular season or conf tournament ?

I was thinking X was a 7 seed but some have them on the 5/6 line. Have to see how tomorrow plays out.
