Inside the Bracket: Bubble update and the Big East

Welcome to Bracketville

Four days until Selection Sunday.  The next 48 hours are like Saturday at the Masters: Moving Days.  The Big Ten, ACC, and SEC join the post-season tournament party with a host of teams trying to make a final impression on Selection Committee members gathered in Indianapolis.  We also have the Mountain West, Atlantic 10, and Pac-10 moving into quarterfinal action.  Every bubble team gets its day on the court.

Away from the bubble,  it’s all about seeding.  A couple of spots on the s-curve might make the difference between playing closer to home or being sent cross-country.  We also have at least one No. 1 seed up for grabs.  In the west, all eyes will be on BYU – what statement will the Cougars make at the Mountain West tournament?

With Marquette’s win over West Virginia Wednesday night, it looks all but certain that 11 Big East teams will earn bids to the NCAA tournament. A couple will limp in – Villanova and Georgetown – but we’ll have a first (besides the First Four) during the 2011 Madness.  It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Villanova, Georgetown, and Marquette in 8-9 games (unless the Eagles keep winning or we get confirmation that Chris Wright is returning for the Hoyas).

Any upsets this year?  Last year, we went down to the wire with Mississippi State in the SEC tournament.  What if Utah State loses in the WAC?  What about UAB if they fall in the Conference USA final?  It looks like we still have 10 spots available.  For the latest, follow along on Twitter @BracketguyDave.  March Madness. Gotta love it.
