It sure would be nice if a major conference decided to have their semifinals in the afternoon today, wouldn't it? As it is, all of the draft's most interesting talent is all playing between the hours of 7:00 and midnight while some less heralded prospects take the court in the early afternoon.
But there is some bubble action in the afternoon. Florida State is firmly on the bubble and would likely secure a berth with a win against Virginia. Meanwhile Missouri is also on the bubble could help its chances by upsetting Florida, although they may also be in need of another win or other bubble teams losing to sneak in the tournament.
If you've been following college basketball at all this season, tonight's games should not need much hyping. In addition for another chance for the Big XII tournament to showcase its awesomeness, Jabari Parker takes the court for Duke tonight.
