2/25 recap

Service holds:
@Duke 80, Florida St 65
Indiana 74, @Illinois 47
@Utah 81, Arizona St 46
SMU 69, @Memphis 62

Das Bubble:
@Seton Hall 70, Providence 52 - Provi is in legitimate bubble trouble now
@UConn 81, South Florida 51
@Arkansas-Little Rock 72, Texas-Arlington 60
@California 75, UCLA 63
Gonzaga 72, @San Diego 60
@BYU 99, Portland 81
@St Mary's 75, Santa Clara 50

Catastrophic loss of the day:
@Stanford 84, USC 64 - USC now bleeding several seed lines in the past few weeks
UC-Riverside 77, @Hawaii 71 - I only mention this because a few of you were getting cute and listing Hawaii on your bubbles.  Stop it

Hofstra 70, UNC-Wilmington 69 - the two are tied for the CAA lead with one to play...and whoever isn't the 1 seed will be in good shape for an at-large bid from the NIT
Penn St beats Nebraska, but both appear to be beyond the reaches of the NIT now...William & Mary won as well, and will be in contention for a NIT bid, but being 3rd in conference may shut them out...Middle Tennessee had an outside shot but lost at home to WKU...Towson over James Madison, but they're battling for 4th in the CAA pecking order and the NIT won't go that deep...South Dakota St and IPFW both won.  Whoever doesn't win the conference has a fighting chance at a NIT at-large bid...
