Field of 65 (TSB’s Bracketology 3-13-10)

Share

By: David Kay

Illinois probably saved their NCAA Tournament lives by beating Wisconsin on Saturday.  Same can be said of Washington after advancing to the Pac-10 Championship Game and San Diego State since they knocked off New Mexico; earning a trip to the Mountain West Title tilt.  Still, there are plenty of debates and questions with Selection Sunday now a little more than 24 hours away.  Here is my latest attempt at predicting the 65-team tourney field.  (Teams with an * have already clinched a spot in the dance.)
