Last Night’s games
Not a lot of bubble losses but Maryland (4) got upset at Penn State. Villanova (7) picked up a big win against Marquette (3) while Louisville (7) continued their free fall with a loss at Boston College.
Tonight’s Bubble games:
Nebraska (AC) vs Michigan (2)
Nebraska is barely hanging on but a road win at Michigan would push them up 4-5 spots. Still not enough to be in but enough to still be monitored
Furman (FF) vs Samford
Furman is still living off some early season wins. They can’t afford any losses at this point.
Minnesota (FF) vs Northwestern
Minnesota is in most people’s bracket but the first team out in mine. Nobody directly in front of them have lost today so I don’t know if a win gets them in but a loss is going to keep them out
Portland vs St. Mary’s (FF)
St. Mary’s resume is better this year than it’s been the years where they were 30-4 going into selection Sunday. Better scheduling and a stronger WCC will do that. This weekend’s game against Gonzaga is a win or you are done game
Belmont (13) vs UT-Martin and Murray State (NF) vs Morehead State
These two games go together as Belmont and Murray State are tied at the top of the Ohio Valley. Neither team is getting an at-large bid right now but if they win out and meet in the conference championship the loser might. Belmont has the stronger resume
