1-3-1 Sports Field of 68 – March 12th

Welcome back to 1-3-1 Sports! My goal is to update my bracketology projections daily for the entirety of the season, so that my audience can have the most accurate, up-to-date picture of the college basketball landscape. As always, I’m open to feedback and ideas from readers regarding potential topics, discussions, etc. Furthermore, if any individual team websites are interested in working in conjunction on team-specific bracketology Q&A pieces, I’d love to contribute. Let the fun begin!

    No way Belmont deserves to be in. They have no quality wins other than UCLA on the road who is a very mediocre team. They beat Murray St. but then Murray St. just beat them.
