Last Night

Illinois was the biggest winner of the night with their huge win at Wisconsin. They jump up two seed lines from the bottom of the 11 line to the top of the 9 line. They are officially off the bubble. The Illini still have a pretty brutal remaining schedule (home and home with OSU, @ Purdue, 'Sconsin), but they'll be in good shape as long as they win at least one of those games and beat Minnesota at home and Michigan on the road. That would put them at 12-6 in conference play, which would be more than enough to get in the field. Wisconsin remains on the 3 line.

Purdue leapfrogs K-State as the next 1-seed in waiting with their convincing victory at Sparty. The Boilermakers continue to be the favorite to win the Big Ten with the win. Michigan State drops to the bottom of the 3 line.

With the Wisconsin and Michigan State losses, Ohio State moves up from the top of the 4 line to the 3 line ahead of both Big Ten adversaries.

Vandy moves up two seed lines from a 6 to a 4 with their blowout victory over rival Tennessee in Nashville. The Vols fall to the top of the 5 line.

Wichita State's hopes of an at-large bid are no more with their inexplicable loss to Evansville. It was Evansville's first conference win this year.

Likewise, VCU's bubble officially popped on Tuesday with their overtime loss at George Mason.

Texas Tech sneaks into the final Last Eight Out spot with their win at Oklahoma.
