ESPN’s Charlie Creme has some great points:
Tennessee is now a #1 seed, Duke is a #2, and there has been some bid stealing:
Fordham and USC came into the weekend on the outside looking in and then ran the table in the Atlantic 10 and Pac-12 tournaments, respectively, to not only climb the board, but then take automatic bids. That meant two would-be at-large spots disappeared. Goodbye to Minnesota and Rutgers. Neither have particularly good résumés with a combined 2-14 record against the RPI top-50, and were just average in recent weeks. Rutgers hung around longer because it had the better win, but Minnesota might ultimately have the better chance of inclusion. However, neither the Golden Gophers or Scarlet Knights are likely to be happy come next Monday.
