NCAA tournament 2011: Tennessee, Minnesota inching toward bubble
Here is what to watch for tonight:
Virginia Tech at Wake Forest: This is a must-win game for the Hokies, who are teetering on the fence. And they will win.
Illinois at Ohio State: Illinois should be okay, but it has a tough road schedule, including this one.
Michigan State at Minnesota: Both teams are in at the moment, but both have a small margin for error. The loser will find itself on the fence.
Tennessee at Vanderbilt: The Vols have lost four of five games and are in danger of playing their way out of the field.
Houston at Memphis: Raise your hand if you can figure out Conference USA. Raise your hand if you have any interest in figuring out Conference USA. I wouldn't be surprised if the league gets two teams in, but none will be a true threat to do squat.
