Bracketology: Boston College, BU And Harvard Moving Up In SB Nation's Bracketology

Boston College (19-11, 9-7 ACC) continues to creep up the board in the latest SB Nation Bracketology update. The Eagles are still one of SB Nation Bracketology expert Chris Dobbertean's Next Four In (along with Butler, Richmond and St. Mary's), but they are now projected to be a No. 11 seed and face projected No. 6 seed Kansas State in a first-round match-up in the Southeast Region.

BC isn't the only local college vying for an NCAA Tournament bid, either. Crosstown rivals Harvard (23-5, 12-2 Ivy) and Boston University (20-13, 12-4 America East) are also in prime position to lock up at-large bids to the big dance.

The Crimson are currently projected to be a No. 13 seed and would take on No. 4 seed Wisconsin in the Southeast region. BU is currently projected to be a No. 16 seed and face potential No. 1 seed Notre Dame in the first round.

Harvard is not a lock for the NCAA tourney, though. If Princeton defeats Penn on Tuesday night, it would give the Tigers a share of the Ivy League title. Harvard has already clinched a share of its first ever Ivy League title by defeating Princeton 79-67 on Saturday.

As for the Terriers, they will face Stony Brook in the America East Conference Tournament on Saturday at 12:02 p.m. EST.

There is a small chance that, if both Boston College and Harvard receive at-large bids, the two schools could meet in the NCAA tournament. Based on the current seeding, Harvard would have to upset Wisconsin, No. 5 seed Connecticut and No. 1 seed Pittsburgh while BC would need to oust Kansas State, No. 3 seed BYU and No. 2 seed Florida in order for both teams to meet.
