Here are some of the final conference records for BracketBuster weekend:
MVC - 7-3
CAA - 3-9
WAC - 4-5
MAAC - 4-6
MAC - 7-5
Horizon - 5-5
Ohio Valley - 3-7
Big West - 7-2
Obviously, the biggest loser this weekend was the Colonial. The top four teams in the conference standings all lost, and hopes of the CAA being a two-bid league were greatly diminshed. After all the carnage, the only team left with any at-large hopes is Old Dominion. Their only hope would be to win out and lose in the conference final, and even then it will be tough to see a 9-loss, 40-ish RPI CAA team getting an at-large.
The MVC did well, but it really doesn't matter for anything, except to improve Northern Iowa's seed. Wichita State fell to Utah State and blew any chance they still had for an at-large bid. UNI is basically a lock at this point for a bid so at least the conference has a better chance than the CAA to get two teams in the tourney.
Utah State's win over Wichita State may actually end up being the most important result. The Aggies have now won 12 in a row and are in great shape to win the WAC by 2+ games. Their at-large chances are now looking a lot better than fellow mid-major conference leaders like Siena, Old Dominion, or UTEP.
Overall, the slate of games was weak and the results will have little impact come Selection Sunday. Whenever the MVC is having a down year, like they have had the past few seasons, BracketBuster weekend won't be especially compelling. We know the A-10 or MWC won't be participating in BracketBusters anytime soon, but getting C-USA and the WCC into the fold would be a major improvement.
