College Basketball: Tuesday Bracket/Bubble Thoughts

February 2nd, 2010
Thoughts on how tonight's games may effect NCAA Tournament selections & seeding..

#2 Villanova vs Seton Hall

-- Villanova is obviously a tourney lock, but their main concerns are winning the Big East and earning a #1 seed.
-- Seton Hall has some nice home wins, but hasn't won a road game since November 20th at Cornell. A win over Nova would go a long way to help their dimming hopes.

#3 Kentucky vs Ole Miss
-- Kentucky, like Nova above, is all about winning the SEC and earning a #1 seed.
