Northwestern women's basketball bracketology round-up: Jan. 27

The Wildcats are now among ESPN.com's "Last Four In."

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

After losing to lowly Penn State Sunday, Northwestern is hanging on for dear life in the latest bracketology. The Wildcats are among the "Last Four In" according to a new projection from ESPN.com bracketologist Charlie Creme.

The loss to the Nittany Lions will be a glaring setback on NU's tourney resume. PSU was 4-15 coming into Sunday and 1-7 in conference play.

The Wildcats didn't have a bad loss before falling to Penn State. Two of the teams that have defeated NU are 3 seeds (Arizona State and Iowa) in Creme's bracketology, and the others are a 7 seed (Michigan) and a 9 seed (Ohio State).

Northwestern didn't drop too far on Creme's bracket though. They retained their spot as a 12 seed and are one of eight Big Ten teams Creme still has placed in the tournament.

Here's a look at Northwestern's updated projections from several other sites:

BennettRank: 10 seed (as of Jan. 19)
