Saturday Canvas

Pretty much looks 5-6 bids are still available, but could shrink depending on who wins automatic bids. One spot was lost when Duquesne upset Dayton and Temple beat Xavier in Atlantic 10 semis. Baylor, Southern California, Tulsa, Auburn/Mississippi State and Nevada may still stun their way into the field. With that in mind here are the last 8 in and out in my mind:

Next four from the cutline up: Minnesota, Dayton, Texas A&M, Wisconsin
Last four in the field: Penn State, Creighton, San Diego State, Maryland
First four left out: St. Mary's, Auburn, Arizona, Temple(if they lose the Atlantic 10 final)
Next four left out: Utah State(if they lose the WAC final), Providence, New Mexico, Davidson

The top 4 seed lines(something I had promised to do in previous posts):

South region(1)
1 North Carolina
2 Connecticut
4 Illinois
West region(4)
1 Michigan State
2 Memphis
3 Villanova
4 Kansas
Midwest region(2)
1 Pittsburgh
2 Missouri
3 Wake Forest
4 Louisiana State
East region(3)
1 Louisville
2 Duke
3 Oklahoma
4 Syracuse

On tap for Sunday, one bracket early, the last one after the early finals are done.
