Bubble Teams 2-20-17

These teams are the In-But-On-The-Bubble, First Four In, First Four Out, and Next Four Out from my bracket projection.

My bracket/bubble team projections are based on computer rankings from TheRankerPit.com, which have proven better than ESPN’s BPI at picking against the spread.

Marquette and Tennessee are in.  Michigan is still off the bubble (on the safe side).  Rhode Island joined them, while Middle Tennessee moved into “safe” territory.  Xavier continues to lose ground and are now in the Last Four In.  Utah also lost ground.  Maryland and Syracuse dropped out.  Louisiana Tech has won 6 in a row and are now sitting right below the cut-off line.
