    Tournament Upsets

    Upsets can shrink the bubble. Illinois State beat Wichita State in MVC. Wichita is tourney bound anyway. If Creighton wins things remain the same. If CU gets upset also, the Valley would get three in and bump someone else. How are the other tournaments going?

    Love the idea of the Valley getting more than the Pac-12.

    Re: Tournament Upsets

    I don't think any auto bids have gone to a surprise team yet, but it's still early. Murray State won, and UNC Asheville won the big south tourney.

    Re: Tournament Upsets

    I don't mind a third team from the MVC getting in but if Tenn State would of beaten Murray State, I would of been ******. I don't want to see them steal a bid from a bubble team. This field is weak enough.

    I would love to see Illinois State win the MVC tourney and get in the dance.

    Me, too. And if that pushed out Texas, it's just more fun.

    THIS And for the hope of Illinois State and Iowa State meeting in the tourney and having no clue which ISU is which. (Because I like evil humor)
