USF Bubble Watch: February 26th

With USF sitting right on the bubble, we will do a daily rundown of fellow bubble teams and see who to root for each night. We will do this every night until USF is completely out of the picture or achieves lock status, whichever comes first.

----------

Yesterday was a bit of a mixed bag. While NC State, Seton Hall, Colorado State, Connecticut, Stanford, and Mississippi State all lost last night, Texas, Arizona, Xavier, St. Joseph's, UCF and Northwestern all escaped with wins while Penn cut Harvard's lead in the Ivy to half a game.

Not much happening today, but there are a few games to pay attention to, including a certain game in Tampa. All times are EST.

Cincinnati at USF. 12:00 PM

Who to root for: USF

COME ON YOU BULLS! OWN THE FORUM!

Indiana at Minnesota. 1:00 PM

Who to root for: Indiana

The Golden Gophers are on the fringe of the bubble. A loss today would be devastating for Tubby Smith's squad.

St. Peter's at Iona, 5:00 PM

Who to root for: St. Peter's

The Gaels are looking pretty good in the MAAC, but they would almost certainly grab an at-large if they fail to win the conference tournament. A loss to a pretty bad Peacocks team would almost force them to win the auto-bid. Plus their mascot is the Peacocks.

Iowa at Illinois. 6:00 PM

Who to root for: Iowa

Illinois is falling apart in Big 10 play, and a loss to the Hawkeyes would almost certainly end their at-large hopes.

Florida State at Miami, 6:00 PM

Who to root for: Florida State

This is the one to pay attention to today (other than the USF game of course). The Hurricanes are in the same group as the Bulls, and a win over a Top 25 team would be a big boost to their resume.
