Bracketology: March 11, 2019 Afternoon Edition

Time for another updated Bracketology post today. Once again, there is no real intro to this one. I want to get this bracket up before tonight’s games. I will have an updated bracket out either tomorrow or Wednesday and then will have daily updates starting on Thursday of Championship Week.

Here is the list of teams that I view as not yet safely in the field and contenders for the final at-large spots: Seton Hall, Minnesota, Texas, TCU, Ohio State, St. John’s, Seton Hall, Arizona State, Florida, NC State, Indiana, Belmont, Alabama, Creighton, Temple, UNC-Greensboro, Furman, Lipscomb, Georgetown. If a team is not on that list, they are either definitely in at this point or definitely out.

Here’s the bracket. As always, the seed list of teams from 1 to 68 is below, as is the group of teams who just barely made the field, and those just outside of it.
