Northwestern NCAA Tournament Bubble Rooting Interests: 3/8/2012

With Northwestern sitting squarely on the NCAA tournament bubble, it's time for a new daily feature, in which I take a look at every game relevant to Northwestern's NCAA chances and tell you whom you should be rooting for.

Again, this could all be irrelevant as of about 7:30 tonight.

Lots of games and I'm really busy today so not much in the way of explanations, sorry.
