There are three conference tournaments beginning next week, but none of those involve bubble teams so we are down to just three loaded Saturdays left in the regular season. In other words, time is running out for teams to make their cases for inclusion.

Surprisingly, we have no double bubble games for the sixteen teams in action Saturday. There was one Friday though as Boise State completed its sweep of Utah State 81-77. The Aggies are going to have to do some work in the Mountain West Conference Tournament now --  maybe even win it -- to make the Big Dance.  

The other bubble game saw Saint Louis get smoked by Dayton 76-53. The Billikens are in some serious trouble now too. That is their second loss to the Flyers. The first came in SLU's first game after a 34-day pause.

Only three teams in action Saturday have an opponent that can really give their resumes a jolt. Everybody else is just hoping to prevent further damage.
