Regan NCAA Tournament Index as of 3/17/2019– Games through 3/16/2019 (not final season)

The projected field as of the morning of March 17, 2019.  Assumed automatic bids are the eligible team from each conference that is highest in the index.  Team are listed in order from left to right on each seed line.  This is not a bracket prediction, only a field and seed prediction.  This reflects some updates to my formula that I made overnight that I feel will more closely mimic the selection committee’s decisions based on the NET rating’s replacement of the RPI (I was already using the NET rating, but the weightings of various other metrics were adjusted).

I will be posting an updated bracket projection in the next few hours that will reflect changes for today’s games.
