Final Bracket

In my last post, I promised this would be short. Here's my final bracket (seed list).

Villanova and Oregon are in, replacing Virginia Tech and Ohio State. The Buckeyes really needed another win over Michigan State to feel safe, and the Hokies needed to pull that one out against North Carolina yesterday. Villanova moved up after both Pitt and Temple won their conference tournaments yesterday. As for the Ducks, I feel the committee is going to reward them because they have a few more quality wins than either the Buckeyes or Hokies.
Georgia's win in the SEC final knocked Arizona State out. The Sun Devils' 5-10 mark in their last 15 games was the factor that caused me to drop them.

I'll discuss the bracket more this evening and tomorrow night.
