More teams keep winning automatic berths into the NCAA Tournament, but it is on Wednesday when the bubble will start to move. The Big East, Mountain West and Pac-12 are getting into full swing and there are plenty of bubble teams in action. Starting at noon Providence takes on Cincinnati. To some the loser of that game is out, although I would not give up on the Bearcats quite yet even with a loss. Twelve hours later Boise State will look to clinch an NCAA spot with a win over San Diego State. The Broncos seem pretty safe right now, but teams will take away bubble spots and others will make conference tournament runs, so a win for Boise State could turn out to be huge.
