Bracketology Bubble Watch: Tracking the teams near the cut line to earn a bid to the NCAA Tournament

Lipscomb clinched a share of the Atlantic Sun title on Friday night and ten more conferences end their regular season on Saturday. It is also a very busy day for bubble teams as the calendar winds down on their chances to secure a spot in the field. Several bubble teams are getting a chance at high quality wins at home.

The Bisons tied for the Atlantic Sun title with Liberty. Lipscomb is the No. 1 seed however, and will have home court advantage throughout the conference tournament, which begins on Monday.

There is one "double-bubble" game Saturday and it features teams just barely on either side of the cut line of the bracket. Georgetown plays host to Seton Hall (6:30 p.m. ET on CBS Sports Network and streaming on fuboTV) with both teams needing a victory. The Hoyas picked up a huge win over Villanova last week, but still have to make up for a poor non-conference schedule and a couple of bad losses. Seton Hall has big wins over Kentucky and Maryland, but they also have home losses to DePaul and Saint Louis. This is a huge game for the Pirates with games against Marquette and Villanova remaining.
