NCAA tournament 2011: A look around the bracketology world

By Eric Prisbell

There is less of a consensus about the final at-large teams this season. And I don't expect everything to work itself out by March 13, Selection Sunday. That's because there's plenty of mediocrity out there and I don't expect many teams on the bubble to play their way into the field. In the middle of the field, the team to watch is St. John's. The Red Storm has six top 25 RPI wins. That is outstanding. Only Pittsburgh and Notre Dame have that many in the country. No team has more. The Red Storm's problem, of course, is the loss at Fordham, which has an RPI of 244. But that's one loss. I've seen St. John's seeded anywhere from fourth to seventh this week. The Red Storm has a manageable remaining regular season schedule.

Here is a look at what other bracketologists did with the local teams:
Joe Lunardi, ESPN:
Georgetown: No. 3
George Mason: No. 7
Virginia Tech: No. 11

Jerry Palm, www.collegerpi.com
Georgetown: No. 3
George Mason: No. 8
Virginia Tech: Out

Andy Glockner, SI.com
Georgetown: No. 2
George Mason: No. 7
Virginia Tech: Out

The Bracket Matrix
Georgetown: No. 3
George Mason: No. 7
Virginia Tech: No. 11
