As The Bubble Blows

Can the defending national champion be out of the Dance?  Kentucky’s quarterfinal loss puts them in a precarious position.  If a couple of upset winners cut line and enter the Big Dance floor with automatic bids, then the Cats could very well be hosting an NIT game at Rupp Arena next Tuesday night.

 

Tennessee may be joining their northern neighbor.  The Vols lost to Alabama, which moved the Crimson Tide to the top of the waiting list.

 

Virginia is in worse shape following their loss to North CarolinaState.  The Cavs may even fall to a 2-seed in the NIT.

 

La Salle is on the cut line following their loss to Butler.  We believe the Explorers are still in as of this writing, but just one or two upsets would burst their bubble.

 

Iowa blew a double-digit second half lead and lost to MichiganState.  The Hawkeyes should still have a good chance of getting in, but they are now a bubble team.

 

Other

Stephen F. Austin is 27-3 entering tonight’s championship game in the Southland against Northwestern St.  If the Lumberjacks win, they might move up to a number 12 seed, the seed that sees so many upsets wins.  SFA won at Oklahoma.

 

If you want to see an exciting, hard-fought game, tune into the Big Sky Conference Championship Game tonight at 9 PM EDT on ESPNU.  Montana and WeberState may not get much publicity, but this could be one of the best tournament championship games this year.  Both teams are balanced and deep, and the winner of this game will become a headache for the higher seed team that draws one of them in the NCAA Tournament,
