NCAA tournament at-large locks and conference finals (3/11 edition)

March 11, 2011 |

 

   I hope you can feel it. Selection Sunday is only two days away. I know most of you are getting ready for Duke/ Maryland tonight. With UNC looking like it’s headed to a possible defeat, a Terrapin upset of Duke would throw the ACC tourney into chaos. March is great. In addition there are many conference tournament games today that may or may not be elimination games for bubble teams. Clemson/ BC,  Illinois/Michigan, Alabama/Georgia are all games where the loser will have a very hot seat on Sunday. Everybody, just sit back and enjoy the weekend.

   Bucknell versus Lafayette is the only final today. It isn’t quite the Bucknell team that put dread in the tournament field for a couple of years earlier this century, but I think they will have enough to get by today and have a place in the NCAA field.
