    I think you are pretty close, but if Arizona does not win a bunch in their last two series, they might get shipped back East.
    Assume you have Super Regionals matched on your board?

      Yes…they are matched on the board.

    Why does UCLA get paired with perhaps the toughest #2, 3, AND 4 seeds?

    What do astericks mean on projections grid?

    Conference winners

    Is the Patriot League a conference, because Bucknell won the Patriot League, not Holy Cross. Sorry if my question is stupid. I’m new to this.

  • Mark Rafferty

    Projections are as of May 20th. The May 27th projections will take Bucknell into account.

  • Tigerterrace

    I Think in this bracket Coastal has the harder regional. With Oregon and Alabama both have better RPIs than San Diego who is UCLA number #2 seed.

  • Debbie

    Is there no May 27 update?
