NCAA basketball tournament bracket 3-9

Teams on the 1 and 2 seeds lines listed according to S-curve, so Michigan State would be the fourth-ranked #1 seed, and Oregon the fourth #2.

Gonzaga erased any doubt about its place in the field by winning the WCC Championship game over St Mary’s.  As for the Gaels, they are still in the field as of now as one of the last four byes.  Depending on what the power-conference teams do in their tournaments, that somewhat-safe standing could change.
