USF Bubble Watch: February 28th

New, 14 comments

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.

----------

After a day lacking any soft of bubble goodness, we have a quartet of games for you to pay attention to tonight. Like always, all games are EST.

Connecticut at Providence, 7:00 PM

Who to root for: Providence

With the Huskies looking to right the ship and solidify their at-large profile before the Big East Tournament, a loss to the Friars would be a big blow even with their gaudy computer numbers.

DePaul at West Virginia, 7:00 PM

Who to root for: DePaul

West Virginia can't afford a loss to the Blue Demons before the USF game Saturday. DePaul is good for one random WTF win this year, and I have a good feeling that tonight is the night.

UCF at Memphis, 9:00 PM

Who to root for: Memphis

The Tigers will be looking to avenge their loss to the Knights in Orlando, and a win over UCF will push Memphis closer to the regular season title and the #1 seed in the conference tournament.

Xavier at Saint Louis, 9:00 PM

Who to root for: Saint Louis, but just barely

This is the beautiful bubble-on-bubble action we like to see here at V5. The Billikens are just a little higher on the S-curve than the Musketeers, and a loss would almost surely put USF over XU in most people's eyes.
