Bracketology Bubble Watch: Michigan State gets big road win; Gonzaga, Utah, Memphis have important games


Michigan State won at Penn State 80-72 to pick up its third win away from home in ten tries this season. Of course, the biggest victory for the Spartans is the win over Baylor in Detroit. 

Sparty will have a few more chances to pick up a quality win this season including a trip to Mackey Arena to face Purdue on March 2. Michigan State is a No. 8 seed in Thursday’s projected NCAA Tournament bracket. 

There are five bubble teams in action Thursday including three late games in California that have ramifications among teams trying earn an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament..
