Rajon Rondo and Kentucky are in danger of missing the Big Dance.
Just one month until the start of the college basketball postseason and, as usual, there's a glut of teams on the proverbial bubble in their hopes of making the NCAA Tournament. There are only 65 spots in the field and 31 of those are taken by automatic qualifiers.

Below are 20 teams that are fringe teams in terms of their NCAA Tournament resumes, for various reasons. We've included a reason why they should be strongly considered as well as a reason why they shouldn't make the NCAA's field of 65.

SportsNation, we want your opinion on which tournament you think these teams will wind up participating in come mid-March. Simply scroll down the page, make your NCAA or NIT selection for each team. Then, compare your picks to the rest of SportsNation.
