Brett Siegel Bracketology: February 27, 2017

We are less than two weeks away from Selection Sunday and things are getting interesting! The bubble is beginning to pop for some schools and getting thinner for others. Lots of teams have little room for error as they look to punch their ticket before Champ Week! There is still a lot of basketball left to be played this season and we all know that there will be plenty of drama these next 13 days! Be sure to check out my previous Bracketology to see who moved where!

NOTE: In my Bracketology, I have the Midwest meeting up with the West in the Final Four and the East meeting up with the South.
