2011 NCAA Bubble Teams

6 of 13

Minnesota (17-9, RPI: 40)

The Golden Gophers are falling apart. Since a win over Northwestern on Jan. 26, they've lost five of six games, including at home to fellow bubble team Illinois. Tuesday's game at home against Michigan State is a borderline elimination game. All of Minnesota's recent losses are understandable, but the committee looks at recent performance and Minny looks like it's fading.

Best win: (N) North Carolina (RPI: 11)

Worst loss: Virginia (RPI: 146)

Mitigating factor: The committee may forget about Minnesota with all eyes on the protests in Wisconsin.

Verdict: In. The Gophers could fall out, but will probably sneak in thanks to the expanded tournament field.
