Marquette Bubble Watch: February 18 Edition

Thursday night was a great night for idle teams on the bubble.  Clemson hacked up a fur ball in Raleigh.  Richmond got spanked at Temple and, as expected, Washington St lost to Arizona.  I added Minnesota and Penn State to the watch since the Gophers are really struggling lately and are backing onto the bubble.

Let me know what you think of the format to show the previous night's results.  I will always include Marquette's measurables along with all the teams that played.  A numbers are courtesy of espn.com.  A few explanations:

S-Curve: Lunardi's measure for where a team stands on the bubble.  As it stands now, 1-48 means you are in and 69+ means you are out.  49-68 are the automatic bids for the lower tier conferences.

Top 25 & Top 100: Records against the RPI

Best & Worst Wins: The team and its RPI.  N means it was a neutral court game.

All numbers are accurate as of last night.  Where applicable, I added wins or losses to the Top 25 & Top 100 results

Let's look to the weekend after the jump

Weekend Look-ahead

As per usual, the weekend is packed with action, starting tonight in Wichita.  The Bracketbusters provides some good matchups this that will impact the bubble, none moreso than Utah State at St. Mary's. 

As usual, root against the bolded teams.  Here's who you should root for in the matchups of bubble sitters:

  • VCU @ Wichita State - go for VCU because Wichita St is closer to the field
  • Utah State @ St. Mary's - this one is kind of a push, so stick with the home team
  • Cleveland State @ ODU - Cleveland State's overall profile is so weak that even a win wouldn't get them much closer to a bid, so root for the Vikings
