Going to MSG!
It is that time of year when you can feel the excitement as college basketball hopefuls are vying for a chance at a title. But before these teams can move through all the brackets, they have to get beyond the bubbles. With SEC teams still eager for the 2013 March Madness season, the big question now is who is going to move from bubbles to brackets?
Colleges on the edge of getting into the tournament based on an upcoming game are known as bubble teams. And according to Bleacherreport.com there are about a dozen teams in the SEC trying to make the move beyond the bubble, including:
Texas A&M Aggies.
Not all of these teams will make it. But there are a few more that may have a good shot at getting to the end.
Alabama Crimson Tide
'Roll, tide, roll' is a familiar war cry for any Alabama fan, but if the Crimson want to roll on into the brackets they're going to have to do some more work. Sports writer Tim Keeney states, "A likely quarterfinal matchup with Tennessee could potentially serve as an elimination match". Team leaders to be watching:
#12 Trevor Releford.
#21 Rodney Cooper.
#5 Trevor Lacey.
#14 Moussa Gueye.
The Wildcats have a long lineage of great basketball. John Clay at Kentucky.com believes "These Cats are too flawed...but a trip to the finals would surely convince the NCAA Selection Committee they deserve a spot in the field". Columnist Bobby Regan lists 5 things that UK needs to learn from their recent wins:
Julius Mays is their best on-ball defender.
With the win over Florida- they're the #2 SEC seed.
Alex Poythress can rebound against anyone.
Willie Cauley-Stein is their MVP.
They have the skills to play winning games.
Jerry Palm of CBS predicts Kentucky will be a #12 seed playing La Salle in the First Four game.
Will Shelton and Rockytoptalk.com are bolstering the likelihood that the Volunteers can take it all the way this year. After last season's one-and-done tournament fade, Tennessee fans have witnessed the momentum lately and are positive the wins will continue. Shelton mentions what SEC viewers need to be watching for like:
Tennessee needing to beat:
Winner of Ole Miss and South Carolina.
[*]No bid-stealers in current conference tournaments.
[*]Winners to hope for:
Becoming a Part of March Madness
March Madness really is like no other tournament. College basketball fans rally in the stands with school chants that have been around for decades. They stomp their feet, yell at the top of their lungs, paint their faces, and are more lively and demonstrative than any other fan base for any other sport. If you want to find a way to participate you can get some tickets and head to a game, have tournament parties with your friends, or find interactive contests like at www.21st.com/landing-pages/en/car-madness.jsp.
The SEC is going to be something to watch as their teams work to make it through March Madness. Get some tickets, or hop online and connect with other fans and find a way to be a part of the 2013 season!
