Bracket 1/1/19

Happy New Year!!! 2018 gave us so many memories within college basketball but it is now time to turn the page and allow 2019 to do the same.

What you have here is an updated bracket with a seed list showing where teams are currently standing. Unlike previous years there are quite a few mid-major programs who have put themselves in position to have an opportunity at an at-large bid into the field. So be on the look out for some surprise teams making an impact in the selection. As of now not many are actually in the field but as the season goes on they should be able to gather nice resume building wins as long as they can escape the bad losses while the major conferences will beat up on one another and allow other teams to make a case for themselves

Be on the look out for a weekly bracket to be released on Fridays and slowly moving to a Friday and Monday bracket as we progress further into conference play.
