Bubble Watch – February 18, 2015 (Midweek Update)

For the next couple of weeks I will be releasing little updates on the bubble in the middle of the week. They will contain much less information and be a bit of a different format than my regular Bubble Watch entries but will still show where each team stands in regard to the bubble. In addition, at the end of each Bubble Watch I will include important games that are coming up that will affect the bubble so you can keep up to date with the teams vying for a bid to the 2015 NCAA Tournament. To see my most recent update with more information, click here.
