Patrick O'Bryant and Bradley will have to wait until Sunday to see if their name is called.
We are less than one week away from Selection Sunday 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. For each team, we've included their overall and conference records, along with their RPI and strength of schedule.

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.
