News On The Horizon 1/11/2017

Bubble Watch: Teams beginning to build conference résumés--Sports Illustrated
Finally, Oakland (14–3, 4–0) and Valparaiso (12–4, 2–1) will give the college basketball world an exciting fight for the Horizon League crown, with the Grizzlies drawing first blood in Indiana last week. Neither team, however, did enough out of conference to warrant at-large consideration. Oakland went 1–1 against potential at-large teams, beating Georgia but losing to Michigan State, and also fell to Nevada and Northeastern. Valparaiso has solid wins over Rhode Island, Alabama and BYU, and challenged itself by scheduling Oregon and Kentucky, but that just doesn’t add up to an at-large bid.
