Latest NCAA Bracketology Predictions



As we hit February, the NCAA’s are just a month away from making another appearance in Buffalo. Locally, Canisius has a great chance to make the tournament this year, leading the way in the MAAC. Syracuse is the National #1 team overall in the rankings, making its chances of playing at First Niagara Center almost a certainty. 

With that, we checked out the latest “Bracketology” projections for what teams could come to Buffalo among three major college basketball outlets/websites. Obviously, these predictions will change many times, but it’s fun to look at the possible teams coming to town.

#1 Syracuse vs #16 Coast Carolina,  #8 Xavier vs #9 George Wash
#2 Villanova vs #15 Vermont,           #7 UConn vs #10 North Carolina

CBS SPORTS:
