Vote: Which bubble teams should be in and out?

VCU Rams, Michigan Wolverines, Michigan State Spartans, Arkansas Razorbacks, Xavier Musketeers, Iowa Hawkeyes, Vanderbilt Commodores, Seton Hall Pirates, Georgia Bulldogs, USC Trojans, California Golden Bears, Illinois Fighting Illini, Providence Friars, Marquette Golden Eagles, Kansas State Wildcats, Wake Forest Demon Deacons, Syracuse Orange, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, Rhode Island Rams, Houston Cougars

Eamonn Brennan released his latest Bubble Watch on Friday ahead of the final weekend of the regular season.

According to Brennan, 20 teams still have "work left to do." Just five teams -- VCU, Michigan, Michigan State, Arkansas and Wichita State -- are listed as "should be in" but are not quite yet a lock. Xavier and Iowa, meanwhile, are going in opposite directions. The Musketeers, a preseason top-10 team, find themselves on the bubble after six straight losses. The Hawkeyes, on the other hand, have made a late push with wins over Indiana, No. 24 Maryland and No. 22 Wisconsin. 

Of course, a lot can happen between now and Selection Sunday. A big weekend lies ahead, followed by next week's major conference tournaments. 

But what do you think? At this very moment, who is in and who is out? Swipe right on the teams you think should be in the tourney and left for those that should be out. 

This weekend, Vanderbilt (vs. No. 12 Florida) and Seton Hall (at No. 13 Butler) could greatly improve their résumés. Also, don't forget about smaller schools such as Illinois State, UT Arlington and Middle Tennessee -- all are looking to punch their tickets in conference tournaments. 

The NCAA selection committee will release its 68 teams on Sunday, March 12.
