NCAA tournament 2011: Gonzaga, Boston College among last teams in

By Eric Prisbell

Putting 11 Big East teams into the tournament makes bracketing extremely challenging because it is difficult to space those higher seeded Big East teams out ... As much as you'd like to find a reason to keep some of those middling ACC teams out, you really can't. The bar has been lowered this week, the bubble had become even softer, and Maryland is not too far removed from being in the field at this point. The big game, obviously, is Sunday at North Carolina.

Multi-bid leagues
Big East (11 teams)
Big Ten (6)
SEC (6)
Big 12 (5)
ACC (5)
MWC (4)
Pac-10 (3)
Atlantic 10 (3)
CAA (2)
WCC (2)

Last four in
Boston College
Colorado State

First four out
Southern Mississippi

VCU is more deserving of at at-large bid than Maryland so yes, it can be ignored and the terrible middle-of-the-pack ACC teams can be left out.
