As we enter February, with about 10 regular season college basketball games remaining, there are lots of teams on the NCAA Tournament bubble.
More than will make it so this is a critical month for a lot of teams.
If you are currently seeded eighth or better by Jerry Palm, CBSsports.com, or Joe Lunardi, ESPN.com, you are in a good place. In fact up to a No. 10 isn’t bad and that’s where the Arkansas Razorbacks find themselves.
Palm and Lunardi are both widely respected for their predictions about the field of 68.
As of now Palm has Arkansas a No. 10 seed and going to Salt Lake City for a Belk Bowl special, a game against Virginia Tech. The winner would play the winner of Arizona-North Dakota State, or in other words, Arizona.
Lunardi has the Hogs a No. 9 seed facing Marquette in Tulsa. The winner would get the winner of Kansas-Texas Southern. Or in other words Kansas. Tulsa is an easy driving distance for the Jayhawks Nation and Bill Self is wildly popular in Tulsa, having coached the Hurricane and he’s an Oklahoma native. That’s a home court advantage.
