A crazy Saturday has made a few bubble teams very unhappy.  Houston stole an at-large bid by winning the Conference USA Tournament.  New Mexico State likely did the same by beating Utah State, who should still be in.  Washington went from bubble team to a for sure “in” by claiming the Pac-10 crown.  Minnesota and Mississippi State improved their resumes by advancing to the tournament title games in their respective conferences.  With all that taken into account, here is my latest version of predicting what the NCAA Tournament field will look like.  (Teams with an * have already clinched a spot in the dance.)

    2 Kentucky. 5 point loss at Mississippi State and a 1 point loss in the SEC Final. Miss State got robbed!
