The updated NCAA Tournament bracket projections are out, and the Pirates are in the field in nearly all of them. In the USA Today bracket projection, the Pirates are currently a 12 seed and would play Cincinnati in a play-in game for the right to face Purdue. In the most recent ESPN bracket from Joe Lunardi, the Pirates are an 11 seed and would play in the play-in game against California for the right to face Wichita State. The Pirates knocked off the Shockers in December. Jerry Palm of CBS Sports has the Pirates as an 8 seed and they would take on the Indiana Hoosiers.
The Pirates are back in action on Wednesday as they take on Marquette at the Prudential Center. We will have the preview of the game up in the next few days and will also have full coverage and a recap. Also, congratulations to Isaiah Whitehead who was named Big East player of the week. Until then, Hazard Zet Forward.
