For the most part, this is the last chance for some teams to make their case to the committee. There are a few games tomorrow that could be impactful, but most of the action is today.
Conference USA gets it started with Memphis and UTEP. The Miners have to win to get in. Memphis may be an at-large with a loss, so this could be a two-bid league if UTEP wins.
In the A-10, Dayton and St. Joes play a semifinal game for the right to try to steal a bid from someone tomorrow. That bid may get stolen from Richmond if the Spiders don't beat Temple in the other semifinal.
Virginia Tech gets another shot at Duke today. Nolan Smith may give it a go on his injured toe for the Blue Devils. The Hokies can definitely get off the bubble with a win. They might be in anyway.
Clemson begins the day without a top 50 RPI win, but can change that in the other ACC semifinal against North Carolina.
Penn State is in my bracket this morning, but the Nits may not be able to survive a loss to Michigan State today.
The Ivy League Tournament championship is today. It's like the BCS - a one-game tournament between Harvard and Princeton, being played at Yale. Neither team has at-large hopes though.
Finally, the Mountain West tournament final between BYU and San Diego State will be important to the seeding of both teams. The Aztecs aren't out of the question as a one-seed. BYU probably is due to their play since the injury to Brandon Davies, but they may be able to keep from being dropped too far with a win today.
