Bubble Banter update: Huskies, Illini moving up …

If you’re thinking Connecticut, think again.  Those Huskies know that time is getting short.  Northeastern’s Huskies are the newest addition to Bubble Banter – leading the Colonial league with a 12-2 mark through Wednesday.  That puts Northeastern ahead of Old Dominion, VCU, and William & Mary in the CAA standings.  Even with a lacking non-conference profile, the Huskies have certainly put themselves on the bubble by winning 15 of 16 games.  Our February 11 edition of Bubble Banter is updated through games played Wednesday, Feb. 10.

Elsewhere, no team has had a better four-day stretch than Illinois.  After spending most of the season on the outside looking in, the Illini posted a home win over Michigan State last Saturday, then won at the Kohl Center in Wisconsin on Tuesday – a place the Badgers have lost only 11 times in 10 years.  Even though Kalin Lucas didn’t play for MSU, these are two huge wins for the Illini who are 9-3 in the Big 10 and tied for first place with MSU.  A win Sunday over Ohio State (at home) will move Illinois into our Should Be In category.

The Big East continues to have a pile of contenders in the middle of the standings.  We should know a lot more about whose moving “in” and who’s moving “out” during the next two weeks.  In most seasons, more teams play their way out than play their way in.  Have a different thought?  Rebounds are always welcome.  You can follow daily updates and news with our Twitter updates: BracketguyDave.
