New, 52 comments

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.

Big West tournament quarterfinals. I'm not sure if Long Beach State has a strong enough resume to get an at-large bid despite another loss, but it's close enough to warrant drudge siren red alert status.
