ATTENTION: 3 Dangerous March Madness 2018 Bubble Teams

ATTENTION: 3 Dangerous March Madness 2018 Bubble Teams

Mark March 11 on your calendar; that’s when March Madness officially begins.

On that date, Selection Sunday, is when the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee will herald the 68 teams that will have millions of fans filling their brackets with.

While already some teams are a lock for the tournament as among the favorites to win the championship, there are those teams still battling it out to earn their spot in the competition.

Here are the teams on the edge of making it in, the bubble teams. Reader beware these three teams can make or break your bracket should they make it in.

NC State Wolfpack

It’s about this time of the season when teams are desperately trying to gain wins to garner the Commission’s attention.

For NC State that game was against Florida State, the nation’s 25th ranked team. The Wolfpack gained the 92-72 ACC win to add to their two consecutive conference wins and their fifth game in a row finding over 50 shooting from the field.

The win over the Seminoles gives the Wolfpack even more momentum heading into the final stretch prior to March Madness.

Not only has the Wolfpack found its flow, it’s also become apparent they among the most dangerous teams from three-point range, ranking 3rd in the conference with 38.1 percent shooting from downtown.

Having earned wins over ranked opponents like North Carolina, Duke, Arizona, and Clemson, the Wolfpack now stands in the 51st spot of the RPI, which sets them in a good position from here on out.

NC State only needs to stay afloat against Louisville or Georgia Tech to probably find themselves in the Big Dance.

TCU Horned Frogs

With a signature win over Baylor on Sunday, the Horned Frogs have inched forward in their bid to join March Madness.

It’s the first time since 1989 that the Horned Frogs have swept the Bears; this means that it would be hard for TCU to not being selected to the Big Dance.

The Frogs also defeated Iowa State and Oklahoma State this year which should solidify their position even more.

The Horned Frogs may be this year’s Cinderella story, a well-coached team that has prevailed despite adversity and injury to its players.

Having won the NIT Championship last year, this year’s Horned Frogs are No. 7 in KenPom.com’s adjusted offensive efficiency as of Sunday, February 25.

Nebraska Cornhuskers

The Cornhuskers’ 61 ranking on the RPI may not tell the full story as Nebraska this year broke the school record for most Big Ten Conference wins after beating Penn State on Sunday.

Nevertheless, though it bodes well for the Cornhuskers they’ll have to suffer the wait to find out if they’re picked.

Nebraska is being vocal about being selected come Selection Sunday; though it’s only their second bid in 20 years, fans and players alike are well aware that if they get the opportunity to compete they will be able to beat some teams.

Critical for the Cornhuskers at the moment, is keeping their focus and improving their defense. Of course, winning the Big Ten tournament would punch their ticket automatically, but they’ll still need to work should that route not pan out.
