Lunardi's late-night Bracketology update

Check back Tuesday morning for Joe Lunardi's full bracket, but for now, here are his updated main components after Monday night's four conference title games:

NOTABLE

  • After losing to VCU in the CAA final, Drexel stays in the field for now.

  • As a result, Texas slips out of the projected field.

  • After losing to Western Illinois, Oral Roberts is replaced by South Dakota State in the Summit League. ORU is a fringe bubble team at best (No. 78 on the S-curve).
