Bubble Watch - Bubble Games Today

Thursday March 13, 2008

Villanova 20-11, (9-9) Vs. (9)Georgetown 25-4, (15-3) - Big East quarterfinals
If Villanova gets a big win versus Georgetown they have a very good chance of playing in the NCAA Tournament. If Villanova does not win they will have to rely on other bubble teams to lose, such as Arizona.
Dayton 21-9, (8-8) Vs (12) Xavier 26-5,(14-2) - Atlantic 10 querterfinals
Dayton needs to beat Xavier to play in the NCAA Tournament. Without a win today Dayton's chances of playing during March Madness are on life support.
West Virginia 23-9,(11-7) Vs (15) Connecticut - Big East quarterfinals at 2:30 PM ET
West Virginia is likely in the tournament already, they can make sure they are in by beating Connecticut.
Arizona State 19-11,(9-9) Vs USC 20-10, (11-7) - PAC 10 quarterfinals at 3:00 PM ET
The good for Arizona State is that they have big wins over Xavier, Stanford, USC, and swept Arizona, the bad is there RPI. A win over USC today should get them in the NCAA Tournament.
Baylor 21-9, (9-7) Vs Colorado 11-19,(3-13) - Big 12 first round at 3:00 PM ET
Baylor is in the tournament with the win, and most likley in with a loss depending on what other bubble teams do.
Temple 18-12, (11-5) Vs. La Salle 15-6, (8-8) - Atlantic 10 quarterfinals at 6:30 PM ET
Temple has been hot and needs to stay hot with a win to get into the big dance.
Florida 21-10, (8-8) Vs. Alabama 16-15, (5-11) - SEC first round at 7:30 PM ET
This is a game last years National Champions can win, which is good because they need many wins to get into this years NCAA Tournament to defend there title.
Massachusetts 21-9,(10-6) Vs Charlotte 19-12, (9-7) - Atlantic 10 quarterfinals at 9:00 PM
No matter what happens in this game U-Mass likely will not be on the bubble after today, a win and there in a loss and there out. At least that is what we think.
Maryland 18-13, (8-8) Vs. Boston College 13-16, (4-12) - ACC first round at 9:00 PM ET
Maryland needs many wins and help to go dancing in 2008.
Oregon 18-12, (9-9) Vs (21) Washington State 23-7, (11-7) - PAC 10 quarterfinals at 9:00 PM
Oregon needs this win to have a chance at the tournament, and in our eyes one more they just do not have enough wins against tournament quality teams in the second half of the season.
Texas AandM 22-9, (8-8) Vs Iowa State 14-17, (4-12) - Big 12 first round at 9:30 PM ET
Texas AandM needs this win and another win in the quarterfinals against K-State to feel good about there chances of getting into the tournament.
Arizona 19-3, (8-10) Vs. (11) Stanford 24-6, (13-5) - PAC 10 quarterfinals at 11:30 PM ET
Arizona destroyed Oregon State yesterday, with a big win against Stanford they will continue there streak of 23 straight tournament appearances.

Wow, big day of bubble team games. Which teams do you think we will see in the NCAA tournament?
