The Bubbler

The higher up each team is on this bubble list, the better.  With last night’s win over St. Mary’s, Gonzaga moved from The Bubble to Safe status.  As of today, 12 teams on The Bubble will make the NCAA Tournament, while teams 13 through 22 are on outside, looking in.  Teams listed at numbers 9 through 12 are the last four in.  Teams listed #13 through #16 comprise the first four out.  As conference tournament upsets occur, the bubble teams in the tournament will begin to shrink.  So, far, no major upsets have occurred, as Wichita State and Gonzaga won automatic bids.  Mount St. Mary’s upset win over Robert Morris only affects the NIT.
