Tangentially related to this, Providence got a nice victory tonight over Texas in Austin. The Friars are now 10-3 and look like a bubble team that hopefully can play its way solidly into the Tournament and boost Michigan's resume.

On the flip side, Northwestern had the ball win a chance for a walk-off win in regulation but missed a long three and eventually lost in OT. The Cats are now 8-4 and will need to have a big turnaround once Big Ten play resumes to have any shot at getting onto the bubble.

Go for two
