This is a little ridiculous. The NCAA Tournament selection is only a few days away and few teams are doing much to make a case. It's getting so that the argument by fans of bubble teams will come down to, "My team sucks less."
The major and semi-major conference tournaments finished first or second round action, and one thing was very clear. All of these teams are bubble teams for a reason. They just aren't that good and they can't close the deal.
- Villanova follows up a big win over Syracuse with an equally big loss to Georgetown.
- Arizona State (with a little help from the Pac-10 refs -- of course) loses again to USC.
- Baylor had to stage a second half comeback to lose in double-OT to Colorado.
- Florida had to make a furious comeback to lose to Alabama by 11.
- Dayton couldn't make a case against Xavier.
- UAB probably needed to at least make the C-USA final, goes out in its first game.
- UMass collapsed in the second half against Charlotte.
- Oregon couldn't beat Washington State in a win-and-in type game.
- Maryland fell apart (again) in the second half to hand it to Boston College.
- Ole Miss cames back several times only to give up an easy basket just before the buzzer in OT for a Georgia win.
- New Mexico couldn't close it in OT, losing to Utah.
South Alabama and VCU are feeling a lot better tonight. Heck, Virginia Tech suddenly has a legitimate case. Ohio State and Arkansas, it's your turn on Friday.
