UMD

76

Maryland looks to be in trouble.  Their final week doesn’t offer much opportunity to impress – at Bubble Watch special Miami and UVa

UNC

87

 

Purdue

67

Thud.  MSU had positioned themselves very well before this faceplant at home.  The finish against Iowa and at Michigan is light

Mich St

47

 

UConn

67

The Bearcats aren’t out of the woods yet.  They would be best served to split their last two against MU and Georgetown

Gonzaga has little to gain here but the Roadrunners should be an easy out

Saturday's results are after the jump.

Notes

Alabama

63

Bama needed this win, but blew an 11 point second half lead.  Their final games are at Florida and home against Georgia – big trouble

Ole Miss

68

 

BC

63

BC avoided the misstep in Charlottesville.  They finish at Virginia Tech and home against hapless Wake

UVa

44

 

Colo St

57

The Rams are in deep trouble.  They have lost 3 straight, but do finish the season up at San Diego St.  A win there is imperative

AirForce

74

 

Duke

60

Did Virginia Tech finally get off the bubble?  They finish up against BC and at Clemson, so they aren’t out of the woods yet

VT

64

 

UWGB

57

The Vikings get the courtesy inclusion.  They will need to win the Horizon tournament at this point

CleveSt

64

 

GMU

65

George Mason has locked up their bid

GaSt

58

 

Idaho

68

Like George Mason, Utah St is in very good shape.  Please win the WAC, Aggies.

UtahSt

74

 

JMU

72

VCU has lost 4 of 5 and needs to win the CAA tournament to earn a bid

VCU

69

 

Loy (IL)

56

Butler has turned around their season.  They are firmly on the bubble, but that’s quite an achievement after sitting at 6-5 in conference

Butler

63

 

Memphis

47

Josh Pastner looked like a helpless child in the 2nd half of this debacle. C-USA may be a one bid league and the tournament is in the El Paso

UTEP

74

 

Miami

59

FSU nearly blew at 20 point lead as Miami continues their bubble popping tour.  FSU finishes up against UNC and at NC State

FSU

65

 

Missouri

70

Kansas St has punched their ticket after wins against NU and Mizzou this week.  No one wants to face the Wildcats in a 2-7 or 1-8/9 matchup

KanSt

80

 

Neb

82

Nebraska simply doesn’t win in Ames.  Nebraska is off the bubble – I hope they enjoyed their stay

IowaSt

83

 

Portland

69

Nice bounceback win for St Mary’s.  They are still firmly on the bubble

StMarys

83

 

Rich

72

Richmond took care of business and finishes up at St Joe’s and home against Duquesne

Charlotte

59

 

TexA&M

51

Baylor isn’t dead yet, folks.  They still have a home date with suddenly reeling Texas and at a checked out Oklahoma St squad

Baylor

58

 

UAB

68

UAB took care of business in front of around 300 people in Houston

Hous

55

 

SCar

48

UGA controlled this game from the opening tip.  They are still on the bubble and have a key matchup at Alabama next Saturday

UGA

64

 

USM

64

UCF hit a last second 3 to win this one.  They have a huge bubble game against UAB on Wednesday

UCF

65

 

Wake

49

Clemson took care of Wake.  They finish up at Duke and home against VT for a huge bubble showdown

Clem

63

 

WichSt

64

This win flips the scrip.  MU now wants Missouri St to win the MVC tournament crown

MoSt

69

 

Gonzaga

68

This looks like a Boise State football score

SanDiego

31

 

Michigan

70

Oof. Minnesota takes another one in the berries.  At 6-10 in the league with games against Northwestern and Penn St they are likely cooked

Minn

63
