Eleven Bids On Tap

I. The One Stop Shop is complete through last night's games.

II. Today/Tonight's GOI.
--First, a quick note on the remaining spoilers: South Carolina, Utah State, Wake Forest, Wyoming, Nebraska, and the A-10. The Gamecocks will have to go through Kentucky today (UK took both meetings during the regular season) to get to the SEC Final and then beat Florida or LSU to blow up another Bubble spot. Utah State will have to beat Nevada tonight. They split with the Wolf Pack in the regular season with each team winning their road game. Wake Forest has made the ACC Semi's after earning the very bottom seed in the conference tourney. They get Duke today. Wyoming could push San Diego State onto the Bubble by defeating them in the MWC Final today. Nebraska could also oust a Bubble Boy if they can take care of two more teams in the Big XII. Of course, the A-10 has already killed one Bubble Boy as Saint Joseph's and Xavier square off for the auto bid.
