211 Teams Alive for 30 Remaining March Madness Bracket Spots

A total of 38 teams are now in the NCAA tournament, either as a Conference champion or as a unanimous choice of 113 brackets, leaving just 30 spots for the other 211 teams that are still alive.

Wichita State removed any doubt by destroying Illinois State for the MVC title, while Florida Gulf Coast (ASun) and Winthrop (BSth) also won invites by winning conference titles Sunday. 10 additional schools are added to our list of teams “in” the tournament due to being unanimous choices of all 113 experts at bracket matrix.

Arkansas, Creighton, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, Northwestern, Oklahoma State, South Carolina, VCU and Virginia Tech are the new unanimous choices.

That leaves the 211 teams listed on the “bubble” below fighting to either win their conference or do well enough to be selected at large.

This includes any team given a mathematical chance at a bid by Team Rankings, such as Monmouth and East Tennessee State, but in fact Monmouth’s loss to Siena practically eliminated them while East Tennessee State really needs to beat Greensboro.

Seven other teams are on at least 109 of 113 brackets so are almost sure things even without a conference win. Those include Big East teams Marquette, Seton Hall and Xavier, Big Ten teams Michigan State and Wisconsin, and Middle Tennessee State of Conference USA. Other bubble teams will be strong backers of Middle Tennessee State, because if they are upset in the CUSA tournament that should lead to two CUSA teams making the tournament and bumping someone else.

The 249 teams still alive are listed on the table below. The “3/8 tip” indicates a tournament that will tip off on that future date and so all teams in those conferences are still alive.
