Bracket 1/4

Plenty of action still to come as conference play starts to get even more intresting. The Pac-12 is looking even worse as Arizona State lost another home game to Utah. Is this the same story as the previous season where the Sundevils barley made the tournament because of their non-conference success. The Pac-12 has Arizona State and Arizona who are currently at large bids in my field but with a few losses in the conference they both will drop as well as the fact that moving up will be difficult because none of the wins will look very great moving forward. The conference is truly in danger of only having one team make the NCAA tournament.

Syracuse has moved out of my bracket as other teams around them have had a chance to be a little more successful and Temple has moved into the field. As always my current auto bids are all teams who I have picked to win their respective conferences.
