March 12th Projections 

             (Updated from March 11th)

Please Note:

There are projections of what I believe THE SELECTION COMMITTEE would select as the field if the season ended today, NOT what I think the bracket SHOULD be.

Changes from yesterdays Bracketometry
 
Rising:
Arizona: Up from 8 seed to 7 seed
-Arizona held off an upset minded Washington to advance to the Pac-12 quarters, and with the win took Colorado's place on the 7 line, as Colorado meanwhile did not advance. 
UC Irvine: Up from 15 seed to 14 seed
-Boston U's upset of Colgate opened up a spot on the 14 line and UC Irvine was first in line to move up. 
Northern Kentucky: Up from 16 seed to 15 seed
-Northern Kentucky also benefited from the domino effect of Boston U's upset. 
Falling:
Colorado: Down from 7 seed to 8 seed
-Colorado heads into Selection Sunday losers of 5 straight after yesterday's blowout loss to Washington St. They now fall to an 8 seed after looking like they were a candidate for a top 4 seed just a few weeks ago. 
 
Entering and Leaving the Field:
Texas in over Stanford: At an 11 seed
-Stanford suffered a major upset in the Pac-12 1st round losing to Cal, that is the type of loss a bubble team simply can't afford, and idle Texas takes their place for the time being. 
UCLA in over Xavier: At an 11 seed
-Likewise Xavier suffered an upset themselves in the Big East 1st round losing to DePaul, knocking them out of the field and making room for UCLA. 
Boston U over Colgate: At a 16 seed
-Boston U beat Colgate in the Patriot League Final, taking the AQ spot away from the regular season champs. 
*Bracketometry Notes:
 
Other teams who won and lost since the last update but who's seed did not change did likely move up or down the S-Curve accordingly, however the     win/loss was not major enough (or other teams that were near them on the S-   Curve had equally impactful wins/losses as well) to actually change their seed.
 
Example: A projected 2 seed who was 5th on the S- Curve could have lost and fallen from 5th to 8th on the S-Curve, however 8th on the S-Curve is still a 2 seed.
