Here are the games that I’m keeping my eye on today…
Bubble Games (who I want to win is in BOLD)
12pm - Missouri at Kansas State - Kansas St would probably need a pretty big collapse at this point to miss out, but their next 2 are tough ones (next is @ Texas)
12pm - James Madison at VCU - Certainly a longshot for JMU to go in there and pull it out, but it would help the bubble tremendously if they do, as VCU is in Palm’s last 4 in right now.
12pm - Boston College at Virginia -Boston College would probably be in the field if the tourney started today, however they are 3-7 in their last 10 and certainly don’t want a loss to a team in the 130s of the RPI. Note that Virginia is actually a 2.5 point favorite in this one.
1pm - Wichita St at Missouri State - No clue what we want here. Both teams have pretty identical profiles, and the winner will wrap up the Valley. That usually means a bid if they slip up in the conference tourney, but I don’t think so this year.
1:45pm - Nebraska at Iowa State - Nebraska has no margain of error, and they are a slight underdog in this one. Hopefully Iowa St can knock them completely out of it.
2pm - Miami at Florida State - FSU is looking pretty good, however this might be their easiest game left and they could certainly drop their last two (NC and @NCSt).
2pm - Loyola (Chi) @ Butler - Longshot that Butler drops this one, but a loss would possibly end any at-large hopes for the Horizon.
2pm - Wisconsin Green-Bay at Cleveland State - Cleveland St is a longshot to get an at-large bid, however it wouldn’t hurt to completely end their hopes today.
