North Carolina gets a big win over its archrival, but remains a No. 2 seed for now. With the loss, Duke switches spots with Florida State, which beat Miami for a second time, on the 3 and 4 lines. That could flip again next week depending on ACC Tournament outcomes. FSU will need a Quarterfinal win to stay on the 3 line.
Kentucky moves up to the No. 2 line with a win, and Butler‘s home loss to Seton Hall. The Bulldogs have a shot to earn that spot back, but it may take a THIRD win over Villanova, which would have to be in the Big East Championship game.
The latest lock honor goes to Saint Mary’s, which took care of Portland in the WCC Quarterfinal round. With the win and now a looming match-up against BYU, riding high after its win at Gonzaga last weekend, there is no possibility for a “bad” loss for the Gaels at this point.
