Georgetown outlasts Villanova

Villanova's Dante Cunningham finds his path blocked.  The Georgetown Hoyas defeated the Villanova Wildcats 56-54. This improves the Hoyas record to 6-10 in the Big East and 15-12 overall. Putting them back into conversation. Wiht 30 seconds left Georgetown held a 54-51 lead. Woth 16 seconds Nova hurried a 3 point shot looking to draw a foul. He missed and the ball was forced out of bounds off of Nova. Hoyas inbounded the ball and Nova quickly fouled. Chris Wright of Nova made both of his free throws, extending the lead to 5. Nova ran the ball back down the Floor and Corey Stokes made a long 3 point shot. The lead was down to two. With 3.5 seconds left the Hoyas inbounded ran to the basket and Villanova couldn't catch them to foul. Georgetown wins and puts them back into conversation. Also, they proved they're good enough to knock of top ranked teams again.

Must wins today, and VT vs. Duke, big game for VT

vs.  Virginia Tech is playing at home against Duke, they are 17-10 and 706 in ACC play they are desperatly in need of a win, and if they could pull one out today they could be considered in a lock in the Big Dance.


Georgetown is doing terrible since they were in the Top 10. 5-10 in Big east play and 14-12 overall. If they lose their off the bubble no chance of making the tournament sorry. They have to win @ Nova to have any shot at the tourney, of course they could make a run for the Big Erast Title though.

USC is 16-11 and 7-8 in Pac 10 play. Their still on the bubble, but they must win today agsinst struggling Stanford. They have 3 great wins against Cal, Wash, and Zona. But lately they have been struggling and need to win this game to stay on the bubble.

Zona is 18-10, and 8-7 in Pac 10 play, they have lost two straight putting them on the bubble again. They need to win aginst another rankedd team today to help their cause or they could be heading for the wrong side of the bubble.

Bracketology (1-4 seeds)

                        1 Seeds
East                 Uconn
West                Louisville           
Midwest          North Carolina
South               Pittsburgh

                        2 Seeds
East                 Oklahoma
West                Memphis
Midwest          Duke
South               Kansas

                         3 Seeds
East                  Michigan State
West                 Missouri
Midwest           Villanova
South                Marquette

                         4 Seeds
East                  Wake Forest
West                 Purdue
Midwest           Clemson          
South                Washington

5 Key points:

  1. Okay, so even after a bad loss Pittsburgh stays as a 1 seed. Lucky for them Oklahoma lost to Kansas the night before moving Oklahoma to a 2 seed and Kansas to a 2 seed also.
  2. Missouri getting extremely close to a 2 seed and it wouldn't suprise me if they made a run for a one seed late in February and early March.
  3. Washington continues its climb and they remain the top of the Pac 10. Marquette moves from a 2 seed to a low 3 seed since my last bracketology.
  4. Louisville moves into a 1 seed for the first time.
  5. Memphis isn't going to get a one seed unless a good team or two seriously plumits. Why, beacause of their confernce. They have no competition in their conference and didn't beat a high quality team in the non-conference season.

Butler vs. Davidson

Ronald Nored will feel the pressure at Davidson.
Watch CBS Videos Online

Davidson vs. Butler

This is the most critical game of the remainder of their schedules, a win could get them into the the big dance, a loss could kill their chances, and put them outside of the bubble. Butler on a skid losing to teams some people have never heard of, Davidson the same. Basically, this is the biggest bubble game this weekend or the rest of the season.

Who will win?

They both won't have anymore games to help their resume. Butler is 22-4 and 13-3 in conference play. Davidson is 22-5 and 15-2 in conference play.

Davidson is an 11 seed in Danthemans bracketology and Butler is a 10 seed.
