Vote: NCAA or NIT?

 Torrell Martin
If necessary, are Torrell Martin and Winthrop worthy of an at-large bid?
We are just a week and a half away from Selection Sunday and, as usual, there's a glut of teams on the proverbial bubble in hopes of making the NCAA Tournament.

We've used Andy Glockner's Drive to 65 to determine that there are 31 locks, six others that "should be in". In addition, there are at least 15 one-bid conferences, which means there are no more than 13 available spots in the NCAA Tournament field.

Below, we've selected 29 of the numerous teams on the fringe in terms of their NCAA Tournament resumes (since Syracuse just bumped up to "should be in" status). Also included is each team's overall record against Division I opponents, conference record, its InsideRPI and strength of schedule to this point to help you evaluate them a little better.

SportsNation, we want your opinion on which tournament you think these teams are bound for 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.

Records and InsideRPI shown below are through games of February 27. Remember, only games against Division I opponents are reflected in teams' records.
