NCAA Tournament bubble teams are getting some bad news. Middle Tennessee State lost 71-68 to Southern Miss in overtime in the quarterfinals of the Conference USA Tournament last night in Frisco, Texas. Conference USA was expected to be a one-bid league before the 24-and-7 Blue Raiders's defeat opened up the door for another team to get an automatic bid. The Golden Eagles are only 16-and-17.
The field of 68 will be announced during the NCAA Tournament selection show this Sunday.
