Michigan State does not deserve a bid. Looking forward to seeing them in the NIT.

Good bracket but you have Cincinnati WAY too low. Cincy beat Xavier by 20, won AT St johns, Won At Georgetown, Won vs Louisville, Won At Marquette. UC has 8 road wins, count em 8....which is WAY more then most teams. Cincy will be about a 4 or 5 when its over. Cincy will beat Georgetown again Saturday and will be the 6 seed in NY. From there they will advance to the semi's and cause damage this team is really good.
