February 28 Update

Now in:
Iowa State   (Talk about playing your way in! Since I posted my "term paper" on how Iowa State was probably not going to get a tournament berth, the Cyclones ripped off two impressive wins over Texas and Oklahoma State, and put themselves back into the tournament.)

Creighton    (The Blue Jays have now won four in a row. This fact combined with St. John's losing three in a row mean that Creighton is now in a three-way race for first in the wide open Big East going into the final week.)

Georgia Tech   (Like I said on Monday, they sealed the deal with a win over Florida State.  Even if they slip out of the S-Factor later for some reason, they're in.)

High Point   (One Radford win away from the Big South regular season championship)

Texas Southern   (The torch was passed: the Lady Tigers of Texas Southern are now alone atop the SWAC)

Now out:
Florida State   (At best they'll be 7-9 in the ACC, and they've gone 4-9 in their last 13.)

Villanova   (Six losses in the new Big East and no non-Creighton top 50 wins isn't going to get a bid)   

VCU   (VCU did the S-Factor a favor by losing on Wednesday. The Rams were never going to get a bid, even with a win.)

Winthrop  (Losses to Liberty and High Point in the past two games put the Eagles behind High Point in the Big South)

Southern U.   (The loss to Alabama State knocked Southern University out of the top of the SWAC standings)
