John Beilein's Weekly Press Conference: March 9, 2009


Viewers Guide

Really just one big game on the bubble today, here is the quick viewers guide.

  • Cleveland State at Butler – 9PM ESPN
    Root for Butler to win the conference title so they don’t snatch an extra at-large bid.
  • Georgetown at St. Johns – 2PM
    Georgetown still has that gaudy RPI and a nice set of quality wins, St. John could end any NCAA tournament dreams in the first round of the Big East tournament. Yeah, I know this game is almost over…
  • Oakland vs. North Dakota State – 8 PM ESPN2
    Go Golden Grizzlies! Neither of these teams would warrant an at large bid but Michigan did play Oakland and it would be great to see the local program in the dance.
  • DePaul beat Cincinnati earlier today which I think hurts Providence a bit. The Friars miss a chance at another top 100 win and have nothing to gain with a win over DePaul. The Louisville game in the quarterfinals will be Providence’s chance to make a statement.
