23-NOV Bracket Projections: Miami FL, Florida State rise, Arizona falls.

Teams with a Zero
Of the 353 Division I programs, 39 remain undefeated against D1 competition.  Gonzaga, fresh off their Maui Championship, and Pittsburgh lead the way with 6-0 records.  53 programs continue to chase their first win off the 2018-19 season.  Chicago State, last year’s last team to register a D1 win, have sputtered to an 0-7 start.

Notable Games
This weekend's top five as I see them (3-2 last week, 9-11 overall):
#5 Texas vs Michigan State, Fri – Michigan State 76, Texas 70
#4 North Carolina vs UCLA, Fri – North Carolina 82, UCLA 77
#3 Tennessee vs Kansas, Fri – Kansas 75, Tennessee 74
#2 Wisconsin vs Virginia, Fri – Virginia 67, Wisconsin 63
#1 Houston at BYU, Sat – BYU 73, Houston 72

My updated bracket can be found below.  Right now, the weighting is 57% last year/pre-season and 43% results from this season.

Swapping out three auto bids:
NEC- Central Connecticut (St. Francis PA)
MAAC- Rider (Canisius)
Colonial- Hofstra (Charleston)

Also, swapping in just three at larges this update.  Oklahoma State, Creighton, and UCF are in.  USC, San Diego St. and San Francisco have fallen out of the bracket.
