More Trouble, Mostly Bouncing off the Bubble

Bubble_trouble_big_medium

Can we get a "last four out" chant going? Please?... Joe Lunardi?... Anyone?  The figurative bubble was burst for a few teams on Tuesday night, leaving their only chance of dancing up to a virtually unattainable run through their respective conference tournament.  Sign here...Initial here...Congratulations, you are now playing in the NIT.

  • Even without an exemplary record the Georgetown Hoyas have been lingering around.  They have been banking on that strength of schedule, but finally the curtain has completely gone down on the Hoyas.  Up 15 with just over ten minutes to go the Hoyas missed 14 straight shots and allowed the Johnnies to euthanize the Hoyas in OT, 59-56.  Liz Clark of the Washington Post calls the collapse a microcosm of the Hoyas disappointing season.
  • After sleeping in on Sunday versus the Syracuse Orange, the Cincinnati Bearcats have now tallied their 4th loss in the last five games with an inexcusable 70-59 loss to the South Florida Bulls.  It will be hard to make a case for the Bearcats now with that fresh in the mind of the committee.
  • One year removed from riding the broad shoulders of Michael Beasley, the Kansas State Wildcats faced a must win versus the Oklahoma State Cowboys.  Too bad the Wildcats will now be wallflowers for the final dance after failing to capitalize in Stillwater, falling 77-71. 
  • Maryland may have the best chance of the Poindexter crew, but they didn't add one last signature win versus the Demon Deacons of Wake Forest.  Maryland fought hard at home but Dave Neal's career high of 19 was not enough for the Terps to prevail, losing 65-63.  The current state of the Big East is keeping the Terps hopes alive, but we still think they will need to take care of business at UVA and probably get one ACC win in Greensboro.
