In considering elite eight bracketing, it became clear that I really don’t watch very much basketball; those of you who do probably figured out several brackets ago that there’d need to be some creative thinking when we got to this stage, because it’s not immediately clear which brackets would face off against each other. I seized Juntoist’s prerogative, put our remaining articles into chronological order, and bracketed like against like; I’ll take the same approach in the semi-finals. So without further ado, we’re moving out of the brackets, and into Elite Eight territory.

Voting begins today, and ends Saturday at midnight. Results will be announced on Monday, when Final Four voting will begin.
