Evan’s Take: The NCAA tournament is approaching quickly and with conference tournaments wrapping up and approaching, there are a lot of bubble teams looking to get in. One of those teams is The Ohio State. The Buckeyes have had their ups and downs this year. The Big Ten Tournament is starting this weekend and will seal an already tournament bid for some teams. Ohio State will have to win the tournament or go far in it to seal their fate in the tournament. Oklahoma State was left out after having enough to get in last year. On Thursday, March 14, Ohio State will take on Indiana at 12:30 pm. If they beat Indiana their chance of making the tournament skyrocket and the Buckeyes should be in.
Haiden’s Take: A bubble team is a team that is fighting for one of the last spots in the March Madness bracket. A bubble team to watch out for this year is Saint Mary’s University. On Tuesday, Saint Mary upsetted the number 1 seed Gonzaga 60-47 in the West Coast Conference championship game.The win against Gonzaga confirmed that they will be in the tournament. The win is bad news for teams like Ohio State, Belmont, UNC Greensboro, and Alabama.These four teams are also fighting for a spot in the bracket. The Gaels are currently 22-11 and could be a threat to a powerhouse trying to make a run for the Final Four.
