Why the bubble is in trouble: Gonzaga surely is in the field with its 25-6 record, WCC regular-season championship and 7-6 record against top 100 opponents. That's why this game is so big in the bubble universe -- if the Zags lose, there'll be one fewer spot for such teams as Ohio State, Kentucky and Syracuse. They all have plenty of reason to cheer on Gonzaga and, for a change, will not have to stay up late to do so. The bubble-bound also should root for Davidson (Southern Conference championship, ESPN2, 9 p.m ET) and George Mason (Colonial, ESPN, 7 p.m. ET).

Some interesting takes as we head toward the NCAA's:

I think the damage is already done in the CAA. In all likelihood VCU is getting an invite as the regular season conference winner. Either GMU or The College of William and Mary need to win the tourney to get in.

VA Tech and MD helped mid-majors around the world.
