The Sun's Arizin: College basketball news and links for February 28, 2014

College basketball links, today featuring slow starts, MAC over Big East for ESPN, and the NCAA bubble.

If you didn't breeze right past the title of today's post, today's version of our beloved Sun's Arizin series is going to feature mostly national college basketball stories. Why? Well, because there was absolutely zero Villanova news that came through my Google alert last night that I would deem relevant to you.

(Cue 3-4 stories dropping Friday morning).

Second, we're a nationally relevant basketball program, damnit. We're marching towards a national title and with Father Peter as my witness I will make sure we understand the national landscape.

Oh, and TGIF, 'Nova Nation!

And now, the "news."
