10 bubble teams with work to do
BYU, Florida State among programs that have yet to punch tickets
Let's take a closer look at the best-case NCAA tournament scenarios for a double handful of bubble teams. What exactly do these programs need to do to earn a postseason bid?
The Cougars (20-10, RPI 35, SOS 21) have hung around the bubble longer than expected thanks to their off-the-charts SOS rankings and a pair of very solid nonconference victories (at Stanford, neutral against Texas). Last week's home-court win over Gonzaga should keep them in the conversation.
What they need: A win in the regular-season finale at San Diego and nothing less than a run to the West Coast Conference tournament title game.
