Bubble Watch: Colorado St, Oregon Making Noise
Based on CollegeHoops.net's most recent Bracketology projection, here is how the NCAA Tournament Bubble currently stands. CHN will publish Bubble Watch on Tuesday's following the Bracketology update.
As always, the field below is a prediction of what the committee would do as things stand today, not what they should do. Teams are listed in order of likelihood of making the tournament.
This week's notes: Florida St and Memphis return to the field of 68 again after stints earlier in the year. FSU was strongly aided by their win over UNC, while Memphis makes it due to their strong standing in the computer rankings. Arizona and Virginia Tech dropped out this week. Tech dropped over 40 spots in the RPI in just one week due to their 3rd straight loss. Minnesota and Colorado St, who barely registered on the bubble watch last week now have to be considered serious players. Pittsburgh has fallen completely out of the picture. Southern Miss relinquished the CUSA lead to Marshall, but still hangs on to an at-large bid.
