Things could not have gone better for the Colorado State Rams yesterday. First the Rams cruised to a 81-60 win over the TCU Horned Frogs in the Mountain West quarterfinals. Then fellow bubble teams South Florida, Northwestern, Oregon, Washington, and Mississippi State all lost in their respective conference tournaments.
SB Nation's resident Bracetologist Chris Dobbertean took notice and moved Colorado State up to an 11 seed in his latest bracket. The Rams would be placed in the West Regional where they would take on the Gonzaga Bulldogs. ESPN's Joe Lunardi also has Colorado State as an 11 seed, but he has the Rams in the South Region facing the Creighton Bluejays. Both games would be held in Albuquerque, NM.
