So how do you like your bubble teams? Do you like strong RPI and SOS numbers? Is a winning conference record important to you?   

 

With Selection Sunday coming in a little over two weeks, it will be interesting to see how the committee sorts things out. In the meantime, let’s take a look at a couple of teams on the bubble. 

 

Connecticut has put together a couple of big wins to put themselves solidly on the bubble.  Rhode Island, on the other hand, has recently lost some critical games and dropped to a bubble team.

 

Which team has the edge?  Who would you select if it came down to these two teams?  Give us your thoughts.
