Saturday Recap

Although Villanova shot cold, they only lost by 3. Good win for Texas without Brad Buckman for most of the game.

NC Greensboro-Elon
Elon started 0-9 against D1 opponents but kept it close against most of them. Then they beat Clemson and haven’t looked back. They are a team of destiny.

Miami Fl.-UNC
Miami has beaten two Top 25 teams this week and has really helped their resume.

Florida St.-BC
An uninspiring three point win by BC against Florida St. still leaves a ton of questions surrounding BC as the heart of ACC play heats up after they go to Holy Cross on Tuesday.

Clemson played well, but can’t shoot free throws.

In what will likely be a two-bid league, Xavier has emerged as team number two.

The Armein Kirkland loss is really hurting Cincy and they will be right on the bubble come Selection Sunday.

Michigan has been close to a big win, but can’t find a way to pull it out.

Iowa St.-Tx Tech
Texas Tech may have gotten back into the bubble talk with this win.

Kansas St.-Kansas
Kansas St. definitely got into the bubble talk with this road win.

Oklahoma-Texas A&M
If Texas A&M had played a little better OOC schedule, then they might have some leeway with these close losses. But they didn’t and they have very little margin for error, the rest of the way.

If one of these teams get hot, they might have a chance and Colorado started that here.

A home loss to UCF puts Houston in the NIT and they likely need to run the table to get back to the dance.

Missouri St.-Wichita St.
A huge statement win for Wichita State by 24 points. The MVC is really making a case for 4 teams.

Washington got a huge win at UCLA. I wonder if UCLA’s inexperience and injuries are starting to catch up to them after letting a late lead slip away.

The Oregon schools swept Arizona this weekend. I wonder how badly the Portland schools would beat them.

Washington St.-USC
After winning @Washington, Washington St. drops games to UCLA and USC and are back to the bubble and the NIT.

Miss St.-Ole Miss
Ole Miss has silently put together 13 wins and still has 2 more games against Auburn.

Kentucky is dangerously close to dropping out of the bracket and Alabama isn’t even a mediocre SEC team.

Arkansas finally got an SEC win and a decent one at that.

LSU caps off a good week by crushing Tennessee. If they aren’t in the bracket, they are right there.

Davidson likely ended any slim at-large chance that they might have had and gives control of the conference to Georgia Southern and Elon, yes, Elon.

Hawaii-New Mexico St.
No mainland wins equals a trip to the NIT for Hawaii.
