47 Tourney Games Thursday Will Cut Down 158 Teams Still Alive for Title

In a week we have dropped from 295 to 158 teams who can still win the national title if they win out, but 47 games on Thursday will eliminate many of them. In a Pac 12 thriller, Washington was able to hold off a huge rally and win 64-62 on a late Desmond Simmons shot to make their rival Washington State the 189th team eliminated. Below is a list of the teams who still have a chance to go all the way.

If a team is in the Middle 20, then their rank is shown (1 rank having the best chance, 20 rank having the least chance). Other teams "must win their conference tourney" to make the NCAA, while others are already in the tournament (lock or auto).
