02:39 pm - Two days til Selection Monday
Two days ago, I claimed that the conference baseball tournaments in May made the conference basketball tournaments look tame in comparison. After two days filled to the brim with upset after upset, the bubble looks a lot different and is much smaller. The only teams who have played their way into the NCAA Tournament talk are teams who needed to win their conference tourney. Well, many are just one win away from doing so.

The Big 12 is one of the major conferences who are looking to send an extra team. With A&M and Texas gone and Baylor on the cusp of elimination, the Big 12 will get an extra bid if Missouri or Kansas pulls an upset on Sunday.

In the Big East, Louisville was the only lock to make the NCAA Tournament. But with their early exit, the Big East is guaranteed a second bid, maybe a third if the committee shows a liking to Saint John's.

Conference USA, which had two locks and a bubble team going into their tournament, is down to two teams: 5th-seeded Memphis and 7th-seeded UAB, two teams who had no chance at playing in the NCAA Tourney as an at-large.

The list goes on and on...

In the Big Ten, Purdue is just one win away from winning their 1st Big Ten Tournament title in school history. This is bad news for the Big Ten as they may be a one-bid conference with Indiana needing to win the tourney to advance to the NCAA Tourney while Michigan State is one of the teams on that rapidly shrinking bubble.
