Virginia Tech topped Maryland, 91-83, in Blacksburg to complete a season sweep of the Terps, severely damaging Gary Williams' team's already slim chances.

Marquette drops down to the last team above the First Four, after they lost to rising St. John's, 80-68. The defeat was only the Golden Eagles' second at home this season.

Michigan State remains in, as the very last team in, even with a loss to No. 1 overall Ohio State, as Baylor won't be jumping in after only beating NAIA Wayland Baptist by only 14 at home.

The CAA is in good shape to get at least two bids, as George Mason continues to build a case for an at-large and decent seed, as they handed VCU their second straight home loss (first time that's happened at the Siegel Center), 71-51. The Patriots have clinched at least a tie for the conference crown. Old Dominion, a 60-43 winner over Georgia State, would be the second at-large pick out of the Colonial, while the Rams may have to win the tournament to get a bid, thanks to three bad RPI losses.

Coastal Carolina drops from a 13 to a 14 after dropping their first Big South game, a 59-57 home loss to Gardner-Webb. That's the Chanticleers' first loss in 22 games, and leaves Princeton and Texas as the only two teams in the country who remain unbeaten in conference play.

Another update will follow tomorrow morning.
