For the past four years, Chris Kulenych and Craig Gately of Bracketology 101 have been the most accurate bracketologists in the country. Their “projection-prediction” model is not based on the season ending today. Instead, it takes into account what teams have done so far and factors in future results as well. For more analysis of their weekly bracket and to read their daily content, please visit Bracketology 101.

Seed Team Comment
at Providence
1   Villanova G'town loss may just be first of many with tough schedule left.

9  UAB The Blazers still can't win at Memphis.
at Jacksonville
5  Temple The Owls' loss at Richmond makes the A-10 race more interesting.
12  Illinois The brutal schedule continues after a huge win over Michigan State.
4  Tennessee Toughest schedule in the country this week belongs to the Vols.
13  Saint Mary's If the Gaels can pick up a win over Gonzaga, they will be safely in.
at Oklahoma City
3  Kansas State Big week for Denis Clemente after a 26.5 ppg average in last two.

6  Pittsburgh The Panthers don't have any impressive wins since mid-January.

at Milwaukee

SALT LAKE CITY REGION

 
Seed Team Comment
at Buffalo
1  Syracuse Road win over Cincy was more impressive with Johnson quiet.
16  Lehigh/
 Jackson State
The Tigers have won 11 of 12 after starting the season 0-10.
8  Maryland The Terps are right on Duke's heels near the top of the ACC.
9  Rhode Island Big week for the Rams with Richmond at home and Temple away.
at Spokane
5  Vanderbilt The loss at Georgia was surprising given Vandy's recent play.
12  Oklahoma State The Cowboys can't afford many more bad losses after Texas Tech.
4  Gonzaga 'Zags could do the WCC a favor by losing to Saint Mary's this week.
13  Utah State Their BracketBuster game with Wichita State is a big one.
at San Jose
3  Michigan State The Spartans will need a healthy Kalin Lucas to beat Purdue.
14  Kent State The Golden Flashes got a pair of road wins to stay atop the MAC.
6  BYU The loss at UNLV knocks the Cougars into a three-way tie for first.
11  California As the weeks pass, the Pac-10 looks more like a one-bid league.
at Jacksonville
7  Florida Gators fans are in need of a good cardiologist this season.
10  Marquette The Golden Eagles' seed will rise if they defend their home court.
2  Duke We were excited for Wednesday's Duke-UNC clash a month ago.

HOUSTON REGION

 
Seed Team Comment
at New Orleans
1  Kentucky The SEC schedule picks up down the stretch for the 'Cats.
16  Lipscomb Trivia question: What state is Lipscomb located in?
8  Charlotte The A-10 bubble gets really interesting if the 49ers lose at Dayton.
9  Florida State The 'Noles fell from the 7 line after a second loss to Maryland.
at New Orleans
5  Butler With their schedule, the Bulldogs won't be able to climb higher.
12  Louisville The Cardinals are the best of the bunch in the Big East bubble.
4  Texas The Longhorns need to beat Kansas at home in the worst way.
13  Charleston Their win over UNC a month ago is no longer impressive.
at Spokane
3  Ohio State Evan Turner's stat line gets more ridiculous every game.
14  Weber State They're still the Big Sky favorite even after losing at Montana.
6  Georgia Tech The Yellow Jackets have lost 11 of their last 12 ACC road games.
11  VCU The Rams have won eight of nine to emerge as the new CAA auto bid.
at Providence
7  Baylor The Bears should climb the Big 12 ladder with their remaining games.
10  Richmond The Spiders got the big A-10 win they needed against Temple.
2  Georgetown Would have been a No. 1 seed had they beaten South Florida.
15  Stony Brook The Seawolves have a battle for first place this week with Maine.
 

ST. LOUIS REGION

 
Seed Team Comment
at Oklahoma City
1  Kansas The Jayhawks narrowly avoided the Curse of No. 1 in Boulder.

at San Jose
5  New Mexico The Lobos have a tough week with two road games.
12  UTEP The Miners are still our favorite to win the C-USA tourney.
4  Wake Forest The Demon Deacons will be out for revenge vs. Georgia Tech.

at Milwaukee
3  Wisconsin The Badgers are right back in the thick of the Big Ten race.
14  Murray State The Racers edged Austin Peay to stay unbeaten in the OVC.
6  Texas A&M A&M climbed higher than anyone else in this week's bracket.
11  Virginia Tech The Hokies could win 10 in ACC despite a soft OOC résumé.
at Buffalo
7  Northern Iowa UNI squeezed out two home wins last week, both by three.
10  Cornell The Big Red begin a stretch of four straight road games.
2  West virginia WVU could be a 1-seed with a 2-0 week against 'Nova and Pitt.

Waiting to get in: Dayton, Wichita State, South Florida, Cincinnati.
