Breaking down the Bubble (3-11)

Published on March 11, 2012 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

March is all about the bubble. It seems as the NCAA tournament approaches everyone talks about the teams that are the last ones in or the last ones out of the tournament. We hear more about bubble teams than the teams that have a shot to win the title. Below are the resumes of various bubble teams this season. This is what the NCAA committee is looking at when deciding who to put in the tournament. So take a look at these resumes and decide who you would put in the big dance. Right now I see 61 locks to make the big dance.  So that means 7 teams on this list will make it.

Here is the 7, I would choose in order.

Texas, Colorado State, Xavier, BYU, South Florida, NC State, Mississippi State.

Drexel, Iona and Seton Hall were the only other teams that I also thought about putting in.

  RPI W-L SoS  
Colorado State 30 20-11 4    
Iona 42 25-7 161    
South Florida 52 20-13 24    
BYU 47 23-8 58    
Northwestern 62 18-13 12    
Oregon 64 22-9 104    
Texas 49 20-13 19    
Miami 58 19-12 40    
N.C. State 48 22-12 25    
Xavier 36 21-11 41    
Ole Miss 60 20-13 46    
Seton Hall 68 20-12 50    
Miss. State 74 21-11 83    
Drexel 66 27-6 212    
Dayton 80 20-12 77    
Tennessee 85 18-14 35    
Arizona 68 23-11 122
