Even with the 2010-11 season's historically weak bubble, there are a number of teams — Virginia Tech, USC, Georgia — that are right at the edge of the NCAA Tournament field. Those teams would all do well to watch the Atlantic 10 Championship today, because Dayton's coming for its spot.
If Dayton can top Richmond in the Atlantic 10 Tournament final, the Flyers, who finished ninth in the Atlantic 10, will earn an automatic berth that is likely to shrink the bubble by one team. Our Chris Dobbertean has Virginia Tech as the last team in the field right now, so it follows that a Dayton win is bad news for the Hokies.
But, just to be sure, USC and Georgia fans should join the Hokie faithful in adopting a Spiders allegiance today.
