Eamonn Brennan's Bubble Watch is out. Read the full post here.

The Big 12 has only three teams -- Kansas, Missouri and Baylor -- which have locked up bids to the NCAA tournament.

Texas has work to do:

Texas [15-9 (5-6), RPI: 56, SOS: 17] The Longhorns managed to avoid a potentially bubble-bursting loss at Texas A&M on Monday night, escaping College Station with a two-point victory and keeping their profile on the right side of the Watch for at least another week. The SOS number is huge, because the other metrics -- mediocre RPI, 2-7 versus the RPI top 50, 2-8 versus the top 100, 2-7 road/neutral record -- are hardly complimentary. A home win over K-State on Saturday might not be a must-win, but it's getting there.
