2011 NCAA Tournament Bracketology: Conference Tournament Upsets Affecting Bubble Watch

Yesterday saw a variety of upsets that have put a crimp in St. Mary’s 2011 NCAA tournament plans. The bubble watch was out in force yesterday and fans of upsets were not disappointed. Penn State would seem to have locked in a bid with their win over Michigan State. They face Ohio State today with a chance to guarantee that spot, but I think they’re in at this point. Memphis had a strong weekend in making their run to the Conference USA title. UAB and UTEP find themselves waiting to see if the selection committee shows them some love.

One of the big question marks is what to do with the Harvard Crimson. They lost on an absolute heartbreaker and have an interesting resume. They have a an RPI of 35, but a strength of schedule of 140. Dick Vitale thinks they deserve a bid and while I think they deserve consideration, I don’t expect it to happen. St. Mary’s is praying for that.
