NCAA Men’s Tournament 2016 Bracketology #3: January 18, 2016

Buddy Hield and the Oklahoma Sooners look poised to make a run at a #1 seed come NCAA Tournament time. While there's plenty of time between now and then, they have the look of a legitimate national title contender, yet only one of the CCR writers has them on the 1-line in the latest edition of CCR Bracketology.
Buddy Hield and the Oklahoma Sooners look poised to make a run at a #1 seed come NCAA Tournament time. While there’s plenty of time between now and then, they have the look of a legitimate national title contender, yet only one of the CCR writers has them on the 1-line in the latest edition of CCR Bracketology.

With 2015 firmly in the rear-view mirror, being nothing but a distant memory, teams are fully engaged in the gauntlet that is known as conference play, and they all have the same goal in mind: advancing to the NCAA Tournament.

For the smaller programs, a strong performance in conference play is much more important to them achieving their goal as opposed to power conference programs. Power conferences get multiple bids in the tournament, creating a ton of intrigue as to what teams make it in and what ones do not. Selection Sunday is always a hot topic, as several teams find themselves on the bubble, anxiously awaiting their post-season fate. Some will find their name on a line in the NCAA Tournament bracket, while others will make their way to the NIT.

Conference play hasn’t been too kind to the teams ranked in the top 25, especially in the past 7 days. Over the past week (Jan. 11-17), a total of 11 ranked teams have fallen to an unranked opponent, creating quite the shake-up in the seeds for the latest edition of CCR Bracketology.

With the New Year under way, College Court Report’s own Maverick and Bennett offer up the latest edition of CCR Bracketology, giving their opinions of what the field of 64 could look like. As conference play moves along, we will expand to a field of 68 teams, complete with opening round match-ups. We will be doing a weekly Bracketology report every Monday morning!

Below, take a look at both sets of predictions, and let us know what you think!

We will be doing a 2016 March Madness Challenge on College Court Report, so stay tuned on Twitter and Facebook for more details as the tournament approaches!
