3/10 recap

ACC final:
Virginia 71, North Carolina 63 - this should probably set the 1 line for good, with Xavier as the 4th 1.  There's a question of who goes west with X as the 2 seed, and I'm thinking the committee will send #5 overall (in my case, UNC) over there

Big East final:
Villanova 76, Providence 66 (OT) - Provi should settle around the 7 line, maybe 8

Big 12 final:
Kansas 81, West Virginia 70 - likely will not impact anyone's seed

Pac-12 final:
Arizona 75, USC 61 - I'm not sure USC is completely safe.  Then again, there's like 12 teams I feel like I can say that about, so I don't know.  This needs a good seed scrubbing

SEC semis:
Kentucky 86, Alabama 63 - are we sure Alabama is safe, guys?  I'm still not sure.  Then again, you know my feeling on this year's bubble.  It's wiiiiide
Tennessee 84, Arkansas 66 - I'm feeling pretty good about UT on the 2 line, to be honest

AAC semis:
Cincinnati 70, Memphis 60
Houston 77, Wichita St 74 - a pretty important get for Houston, which IS battling non-con SoS issues on their resume and can use these wins to mask that problem

A-10 semis:
Rhode Island 90, St Joseph's 87
Davidson 82, St Bonaventure 70 - are we sure Bonaventure is home free?  And Davidson needed this to get off the NIT bubble, if that's your thing

Mountain West final:
San Diego St 82, New Mexico 75

A-East final:
UMBC 65, Vermont 62 - sigh

Big Sky final:
Montana 82, Eastern Washington 65

Southland final:
Stephen F Austin 59, SE Louisiana 55

MAC final:
Buffalo 76, Toledo 66

WAC final:
New Mexico St 72, Grand Canyon 58

Sun Belt semis:
UT Arlington 71, Louisiana 68 - sigh
Georgia St 73, Georgia Southern 67

Ivy semis:
Harvard 74, Cornell 55
Penn 80, Yale 57

MEAC final:
North Carolina Central 71, Hampton 63 - no sigh for the 1 seed losing here because the conference standings were a mess all year in this conference

SWAC final:
Texas Southern 84, UAPB 69

Big West final:
Cal St-Fullerton 71, UC Irvine 55
