Bracketology: Gophers men's + women's hoops are last ones "in" NCAA tourney right now

Posted by: Michael Rand under Gophers Updated: March 3, 2014 - 1:10 PM

It's hard to be any more on the bubble than the Gophers men's and women's basketball teams are right now.

The latest ESPN "bracketology" came out today, and they are both the final team listed in their respective fields among the "last four in."

If you want to read it a certain way, that of course could be interpreted as both Gophers teams being, at this point, the very last teams in the field.

The men's squad is tabbed as a No. 11 seed, playing one of those delightful play-in games in the expanded field of 68 before the NCAA tourney begins in earnest.

The women's squad is listed as a No. 11 seed as well, but that tourney has no play-in game.

The good news, we suppose, is both have winnable games coming up. The men close the regular season on Sunday at home against an improving but still very beatable Penn State squad, while the women drew lowly Wisconsin in the opening round of the Big Ten tournament on Thursday.

The bad news, we suppose, is that a slip-up by either team in those games could spell doom.
