The Cincinnati Bearcats essentially punched themselves a ticket straight to the NCAA Tournament with their thrilling double overtime win over Georgetown in the Big East tournament, even if they lose to the Syracuse Orange in their next game. The new SB Nation Bracketology predictions are out and Cincy got a boost up to an eight seed after the win over the Hoyas. They're slated to take on nine seed Virginia in the South bracket.
Ohio State still have to wait for the results of the Big Ten tournament to roll through before they know their final fate, but it currently looks good as usual for the Buckeyes with a two seed, facing them off against Lehigh in the West bracket. Akron also didn't move at all as they wait for the MAC tournament, still at a 14 seed. Their new opponent in the projected bracket is the Baylor Bears.
