One week to go. Four teams are already in the field: Jacksonville St, FGCU, Wichita St. and Winthrop. It was a rough day for Monmouth and Illinois St. Monmouth won the regular season MAAC Championship two years in a row, but failed to win the conference tournament. Illinois St. is playing in one of the First Four games in my bracket as of now, but there is a lot of games to be played this week, none of them by the Red Birds.
