Bracket Notes

I’ve removed the Ohio St games that Evan Turner missed from my S-Curve formula.  Removing those games causes Ohio St to jump to a #4 seed.  A preliminary analysis of Wisconsin, missing Jon Leuer, shows them as a #3 seed if the games Leuer missed are removed.  Similarly, removing the game Michigan St lost to Illinois because of Kalin Lucas’ injury would move them up to a #5 seed.  I’m holding off on changing the seeds for Wisconsin and Michigan St however, since those injury situations have not yet stabilized.

For most of the automatic bids for the lower conference teams, I simply select the team with the best RPI, only changing those teams when the selected team loses.  However, since the Ivy League takes the regular season champion, I am adding Princeton to the bracket since they are the last undefeated team left in the conference.  In any case, Princeton plays Cornell tonight and the winner of that game will be in tomorrow’s bracket.  A Cornell win tomorrow would give them a 12 or 13 seed.
