Predicting the NCAA Tourney Round 3

These are the teams that I feel will make the NCAA Tournament if the season ended today. I consider strength of schedule, conference records, and out of conference opponents when deciding what teams get in every week. New teams that have been added this week are noted in bold.

Big East (7): Connecticut, Syracuse, Boston College, Georgetown, Villanova, Pitt, Notre Dame
ACC (6): North Carolina, Duke, Wake Forest, Maryland, Georgia Tech, Miami
Big 12 (6): Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas Tech, Texas, Iowa State
Conference USA (6): Depaul, Cincinnati, Louisville, Charlotte, Memphis, UAB
SEC (4): Kentucky, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi State
Big 10 (4): Illinois, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Minnesota
Pac 10 (3): Arizona, Washington, UCLA
Big West (2): Pacific, Utah State
West Coast Conference (2): Gonzaga, St. Mary's (CA)
Missouri Valley Conference(2): Wichita State, Southern Illinois
A 10 (2): George Washington, St. Joseph's
Western Athletic Conference (2): Nevada, UTEP
America East (1): Vermont
Atlantic Sun Conference (1): Gardner and Webb
Big Sky Conference (1): Portland State
Big South Conference (1): Winthrop
Colonial Athletic Association (1): Old Dominion
Horizon League (1): Wisconsin Milwaukee
Ivy (1): Penn
Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (1): Niagara
Mid Continent Conference (1): Oral Roberts
Mid American Conference (1): Miami (Ohio)
Mountain West Conference (1): Utah
Mid Eastern Athletic Conference (1): Coppin State
Northeast Conference (1): Monmouth (N.J.)
Ohio Valley Conference (1): Samford
Patriot League (1): Holy Cross
Southern Conference (1): Davidson
Southland Conference (1): SE Louisiana
Southwestern Athletic Conference (1): Alabama A&M
Sun Belt Conference (1): Denver

Teams that have been eliminated from the tourney since last week:

Virginia Tech: Two losses last week to Maryland and Virginia means the Hokies are going to the NIT.

Marquette: A loss to TCU, and an overtime win against East Carolina is not enough to keep this bubble team in the tourney this week.

Arizona State: An embarrassing loss to USC and getting blown out at UCLA knocks this Pac 10 team out.

Air Force: They only had one game last week, and beat Colorado State. It came down to one of the last picks, but I decided to include UTEP instead.

Rider: Two losses to Iona, and Manhattan knocked this team out of first place in their conference.

University of Missouri Kansas City: A loss to Oakland, which is one of the lower teams in the Mid Continent Conference, gave Oral Roberts the lead in the conference.

I agree,

I love College Basketball. and recently I have bought stock in it. Not like real stock on Wall street, but a stock market that is strictly for sports.

You have seen it? Its pretty cool. You buy issues for your favorite teams and you make real money. Not like a fake stock simulator. I cash out Dividends each time the team wins. Also I can sell my team stock when the price goes up.
