2012 NCAA Tournament Bracketology: WVU, UConn, Seton Hall, USF Among Big East Teams Seeking To Improve Standing

Chris Dobbertean’s latest post on the NCAA Tournament bracket looks similar to other brackets he’s published recently, with West Virginia still hugging at No. 10 seed, but that will change as conference tournaments continue.

Dobbertean notes that Tuesday’s results in the Big East Tournament might have had a bigger impact if they had been different.

Connecticut opened the Big East Tournament with a needed win over DePaul (You can read that sentence as, “If the Huskies had lost, they would be finished.”), while Seton Hall obliterated Providence in its must-win. That means that Wednesday’s at-large pool is identical to Tuesday’s.

Right. If you’re even close to being a bubble team, you don’t get to lose to DePaul. Anyway, West Virginia, UConn and Seton Hall are all most likely in at this point. One Big East team that remains perilously close to the bubble is South Florida, which takes on Villanova on Wednesday. That’s a very winnable game — Villanova has had an awful time in Big East play this season — but it’s a game the Bulls badly need to win.
