Colorado State probably needs just one win in the Mountain West Conference Tournament. But without that one win -- against TCU, Thursday night at 5:30 ET -- the selection committee would probably decide that the Mountain West is represented well enough by likely locks UNLV, San Diego State, and New Mexico.

Dayton and Xavier meet head-to-head on Friday evening (9pm ET, CBS) in the Atlantic 10 Tournament, and to the loser of that game is stuck with NIT dreams The St. Louis Billikens -- Billekens! -- can make themselves a more-or-less lock with a win over Lasalle on (Friday, 6:30 ET, CBS). On the wrong side of the bubble, St. Joseph's desperately needs a win over St. Bonaventure (Friday, 2:30 ET, CBS), plus a little Hawk magic in the semi-finals on Saturday in order to celebrate on Sunday.

Wednesday is the first day of these games butting into the prime time network TV schedules, and games on three different channels simultaneously. This is a milestone in the pre-NCAA Tournament schedule.Stop working and soak it up, people -- the Madness is officially on!

I have a feeling these next few days are going to be incredibly chaotic in and around the bubble...
