I wouldn’t be surprised if Baylor and Oklahoma State got in the tournament, maybe even Marquette. This is probably the toughest “bubble” prediction in a long time. Last year was so easy…. After this, I want to put in Oklahoma State and Baylor over Saint Mary’s and St. Bonaventure… But… Let’s not make the mid majors angry.
