Where do the Florida teams stand three days away from Selection Sunday according to Mike Dobbertean?

With championship week now in full swing, the projected NCAA tournament brackets are moving around quickly depending on the results of conference tournament games. When it comes to the teams in Florida, two teams seem to be locks going into Selection Sunday, one appears to be in but could use another win to secure a bid and one other needs a victory in their tournament game to have a chance.

The Florida Gators and Florida State Seminoles have good tournament resumes and good non-conference profiles to be in the NCAA tournament. SBNation bracketologist Chris Dobbertean has the Seminoles as a No. 5 seed in the South region matched up with No. 12 Colorado State. He also has the Gators as a No. 7 seed in the East region against No. 10 Connecticut.

Dobbertean also has the South Florida Bulls in at a No. 12 seed in the West region matched up against No. 5 Creighton. The Bulls play the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the Big East tournament Thursday night at 9 p.m. A win would go a long way into securing the Bulls with a tournament bid.

The Miami Hurricanes on the other hand have work to do. Dobbertean has projected them as one of the last four teams out of the NCAA tournament because of their recent struggles.The Hurricanes play their first round game in the ACC tournament a 9 p.m. Thursday night against Georgia Tech. Miami needs to win that game and then play well or beat the Seminoles on Friday night to bolster their profile to get an NCAA tournament bid.
