ACC

Sideline Intel Bracketology: Feb. 23

 

You’ll notice there’s not a lot of movement his week.

Most of the top seeds held serve. Even a lot of the teams below them did the same.

And then there’s Oklahoma.

Trae Young and his perceived one-trick-pony Sooners have been on a tailspin into the finally week of the season, losing six straight and seven of their last eight. They may just miss the tournament, but we’ll get to that in a week or so…

But, yeah, other than Oklahoma falling five seed lines — I had been trying to give them the benefit of the doubt, I’ll admit — this bracket won’t look much different than Monday’s iteration.
