Games of the Day

Butler v. Cleveland State
CSU can beat Butler, and that would mean one less bubble spot, as Butler's in regardless.

NDSU v. Oakland / WKU v. USA
Winner dances!

Georgetown v. St. John's
Because a) with two wins, Georgetown could be put right back on the bubble, deservedly or not, and b) one of these days, St. John's is going to be relevant again.  I say it's today!!  (I've always liked them for some reason...go Johnnies!)
