NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Bracketology: Colin McMahon’s bracket projections (Mar. 7)

Just 10 days are left until Selection Sunday

It’s Thursday, it’s March, which means another bracket projection! And this one happens with just 10 days until Selection Sunday.

Per usual, there have been many impactful games lately, affecting both higher seeds and bubble teams. From the top line, Tennessee is playing phenomenal basketball of late, moving the Vols up, while on the bubble, teams such as Wake Forest and Providence have slipped out because of recent losses. 

Two new teams have entered the field since last week's projection, with even more teams waiting for their chance to potentially appear in the bracket.

It’s the last week of the regular season for the power conferences, meaning these last few games and the conference tournaments are the last chances teams have to make their mark and earn their spot in the NCAA Tournament.
