Four undefeated teams remain as we enter mid-January. Which will be the last one standing?
The good news is that in college basketball, one loss does not end your national championship hopes. Let's take a look at the latest bracket projections.
As always, I am not predicting how teams will finish the season; however, I am simply bracketing them based on what they have done up to this point. I like to break teams down into three categories:
- "Wallflowers" are bubble teams. Everyone wants to get into the Big Dance, but not all of them have the guts to ask a girl out onto the dance floor.
- A school in the middle is "dancing with its sister."
- An elite team that is safely in is "dancing with a hottie."
Last four in: Tennessee, Stanford, California, Southern Miss.
First six out: Arizona State, Boise State, Minnesota, SMU, Texas, Washington.
The projections are presented in slideshow format, with each major conference receiving its own slide.
