@Houston 67, Cincinnati 62 - signature wins are a great way to get off the bubble. NOW what do you do with Cincy's seed? So much of it was contingent on keeping their nose clean....for now, my rule of 1 applies. Everyone gets one.
@Wichita St 93, Temple 86 - it's running-the-table time for Temple
@Wisconsin 57, Purdue 53 - here's your dumb loss of the day...
@Penn St 79, Ohio St 56 - although this is pretty dumb too. Penn St and Nebraska can have a pillow fight to see who is the more relevant bubble team. I have a bad feeling one of them will get there by March
@Gonzaga 76, Loyola Marymount 46
@San Francisco 70, St Mary's 63 - everyone gets one.
BYU 75, @Pepperdine 70
Arizona 77, @Arizona St 70 - this is really helpful to Zona's seed, more than you think
Utah 70, @Washington 58 - I wish some of these bubble teams would make up their damn mind if they're any good or not
@USC 72, Oregon 70
@Washington St 73, Colorado 69
@UCLA 75, Oregon St 68
Middle Tennessee 72, @Southern Miss 62
Western Kentucky 102, @North Texas 94 (OT) - we play on in CUSA. MT up one on WKU (with Old Dominion 1 back, with no real at-large profile to work with. This is becoming fascinating to watch to see if ODU gets in the way of these two now)
@Utah Valley 86, New Mexico St 79 - this was going to be the toughest ask for NMSU in conference play. That's likely the at-large bid by the boards
A-Fun: FGCU finally loses in conference play, and may cost them a chance to get out of the 16 line
AEast: Vermont moves to 12-0 and has essentially ended this race
Big Sky: Montana's first loss comes to Eastern Washington. Weber St moves 1.5 back with 5 to play
CAA: Charleston remains one up on Northeastern, as those 2 have finally separated from the rest
