Bracketology Bubble Watch: ACC Tournament has four teams trying to boost resume in action Wednesday

USATSI

After a couple of days off while the smaller conferences were in the spotlight, Bubble Watch is back for the stretch run of the season.

Many people overrate the importance of conference tournaments. To the NCAA Tournament selection committee, they are no more important than any other games. The main difference between the conference tournaments and regular season games is that they are typically at neutral sites. That gives teams a chance to pick up wins away from home, which the committee likes to see.

The other thing about conference tournaments is that it is the last chance for team to improve their tournament resume. Once they lose, the book is closed. For bubble teams, the desperation ratchets up. Expect to see some of that Wednesday.

Here are the bubble teams in action Wednesday, starting with a “Double-Bubble game” in the ACC Tournament. All times Eastern
