We’re heading into the biggest stretch of three days of college basketball for bubble teams this season. There’s a huge slate tonight and tomorrow as teams take their last regular season hacks before looking to add some wins in their conference tournaments.
Last night’s bubble watch
The games of last evening have much of an effect either way, but Washington and Syracuse didn’t do anything to help their already limited chances. The Huskies lost 77-66 to UCLA at home, and Syracuse fell 88-79 at North Carolina.
The Pac-12 and ACC give limited opportunities for signature wins, and both teams needed this one and probably one more Quad 1 to even be in consideration. Being a near .500 power conference team this year just isn’t enough, and both teams now need to win their conference tournament.
Games to watch today
