Friday’s FSU basketball rooting guide

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Midwest Regional-Oregon vs Michigan Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

At this point, I think we’re in. But I thought that a decade ago before FSU got the ultimate screw job from the committee. So let’s keep hating on bubble teams.

Here you go:

VCU vs Rhode Island (12:00, NBCS)

We need to avoid bid thieves in the A10, which means that URI or St. Bonaventure has to win this tourney. Rams!

Alabama vs Auburn (1:00, ESPN)

Bama kept their hopes alive yesterday by scoring on a play where Texas A&M made the out-of-the-box decision not to play any defense. I’d like to see those dreams crumble. War Eagle.

Richmond vs St. Bonaventure (6:00, NBCS)

Ideally, we want Rhode Island to win the A10, and have the Bonnies bounced in round 1 as they’re competing with us for seeding. This game is tricky, as anyone but URI or SB winning the conference would steal a bid from bubble teams.

Providence vs Xavier (6:30, FS1)

Providence and FSU are neck and neck. We don’t want them picking up a big win. Muskateers!

Kansas State vs Kansas (7:00, ESPN)

See Providence v Xavier. Need Kansas to hold serve. Rock Chalk!

Butler vs Villanova (9:00, FS1)

See K-State v Kansas, and go Nova.

UCLA vs Arizona (9:00, P12)

See Butler v Villanova. Let’s go Cats.

San Diego State vs Nevada (9:00, CBSS)

If Nevada doesn’t win the Mountain West, there will be a bid thief. Wolfpack!

Oregon vs USC (11:30, FS1)

USC is probably right behind Florida State. Go Ducks.

Out of conference foes in action: Southern Miss, Florida
