Currently, two blue-blood programs are on the outside looking in at the Big Dance. But Duke beat Virginia 66-60, then drilled Syracuse 85-71 to move onto the NCAA Bubble. And MSU followed up its 81-70 upset of Illinois with a comeback win over OSU, 71-67. Even after toppling two Top Ten opponents, the Spartans are a long shot to make the tourney, something they've done every year since 1997.
On the GridCard, MW (45) got a lift from the Pelicans who lost to the Bucks but covered ATS. This was MW's first GridCard win of the year.
