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
