America East = UMBC (University of Maryland Baltimore County)

Atlantic 10 = Temple

Big East = Pittsburgh 

Conference USA = Memphis

MAC = Kent State

MEAC = Coppin State

Mountain West = UNLV

Pac – 10 = UCLA

Patriot = American

SWAC = Mississippi Valley State

WAC = Boise State

Miss NJ:  Important results in this group are Temple and UNLV.  The best team in the A-10 this year was Xavier with a 27-6 record (14-2 conf.)  They have key victories over Indiana, Cincinnati, Kansas State, Virginia, and Auburn at Auburn.  The best team in the Mountain West was Brigham Young who is currently #23 (ESPN/USA Today)/#24 (AP).  They have one key win over Louisville at Lousiville.

So, are they in or out?  Xavier definitely deserves to be in based on the body of work.  Brigham Young ended the year as a nationally ranked team.  If both get in, which bubble team gets left out?

I am definitely going to live blog the selection show tomorrow.  So, be here at 6p for the field of 65.  At some point I will link to a bracket.
