Some thoughts on an exciting Championship Week Saturday.. with an eye on the Big Dance:
- Tulsa learned in a big way this morning that Memphis owns the CUSA. Having won 10 of 13 games, and with 20 overall, the Golden Hurricanes are hoping they've done enough to impress the NIT selection committee. Regardless, the emergence of 7-0 big man Jerome Jordan is a great sign for the future.
Note on Saturday's Movement: The bubble is still highly unclear this morning (that makes it fun..), though Saint Joseph's obviously helped themselves tremendously by beating Xavier. What would be interesting though is if Temple beats them today.. whether the committee would take 3 A10 teams. I moved Oregon into the last spot in the field, replacing Ohio State who lost a well-fought game to Michigan State. The reality though is that any team below a 10 seed should be terribly insecure heading into Sunday evening.
A Friday night update on all things Championship Week with an eye on the bracket..
- Miami, the Ohio version, almost caused havoc by knocking Kent State out of the MAC tournament. But the Golden Flashes managed to pull of a 49-47 win, ensuring that at least for another day the MAC is a one bid league.
Bubble time is not only a fun time, but its a testy time.. after all, everybody wants their favorite team to make the Big Dance. Thus the amount of emails I gets grew substantially since this year's Daily Bracketology started. In honor of some of the better, and more repeated emails, here are some reader questions and responses (edited slightly to fit into an article)..
