The bubble talk for the NCAA Tournament is really starting to heat up as we hit mid-February. This is the point in the season when teams need to buckle down and show the selection committee they are one of the 68 teams who belong in the dance.
Unfortunately, around this time of year is when some teams show us that maybe they don't actually belong in the tourney, which is not what a team wants to hear as we come down the stretch.
It is happening again this year as we all thought that these five teams a month ago were almost locks for a spot in the dance, but now not so much.
Each team, of course, still has a shot of getting in, but their play must improve in the final few weeks to secure a spot in March Madness.
