Tuesday Bubble Rooting Guide for Virginia Tech Basketball Fans

Horizon League Tournament

Final - Butler vs. UW-Milwaukee, 9 p.m. EST, ESPN

Root for Butler. If Milwaukee wins, there's a chance Butler wouldn't get an at-large bid, but there's also a chance they remain in the field and the Panthers steal an at-large. Better safe than sorry when it comes to the mid-major teams. We learned this the hard way last season with Utah State and UTEP.

Big East Tournament

First Round - Marquette vs. Providence, 9 p.m. EST, ESPNUVA

Root for Providence. As a staunch supporter of Warrior basketball, it pains me to say this. However, Marquette is a fellow bubble team and a fellow bubble team that right now is on much better footing than the Hokies. A loss to the Friars in the first round of the conference tournament wouldn't light Marquette's resume on fire, but it would at least give it a nice, ugly cigarette burn.

Monday's Results

Old Dominion's win over Virginia Commonwealth was a big one for the Hokies, keeping the Rams out of the big dance and keeping the CAA at two bids. Gonzaga's win over Saint Mary's might have been moot. Most bracket projections had both the Bulldogs and the Gaels on equal footing, so odds are both would have made it to the tournament regardless of the outcome.
