NCAA Basketball Bracketology: Updated S-Curve And Bracket For March 11, 2011

Note that Richmond has to move into the First Four as there are three ACC teams in those slots on the S-curve. That won't be an issue after today, however.

The full bracket is after the jump. Here's a link to yesterday's for comparison.

National Semifinal Matchups

(1) East vs. (4) West

March 16: Clemson vs. St. Mary's to Cleveland on March 18th

Next Four In (automatically in the Round of 64): Washington, Colorado, Georgia, Virginia Tech

Richmond is actually ahead of Virginia Tech in my seeding curve, but as there would be three ACC teams in the First Four if the Hokies remained, I switched them with the Spiders.
