Here are Chris and Craig's Bracketology 101 selections for Jan. 31:
LSU gets in this week because they are 4-2 in the SEC and they have two winnable road games this week. UAB gets the nod over Marquette because they are two games better then them in conference and we predict that UAB will win at Marquette on Wednesday night.
