March Madness is coming up quickly and certain teams in the nation will have their fates decided within the next few weeks. Some teams, like Villanova and Kansas, are clear cut contenders for the national championship. But there is intrigue even among the worst teams in the tournament, where the Bubble resides. Let's take a look at a few teams currently sitting on the bubble.

1. Marquette.

The Big East has a few teams that are on the fringe of making it to the NCAA tournament.

Helping the case of Marquette is the fact that they defeated second ranked Villanova in a key game at home. The Golden Eagles also boast victories over Creighton and Xavier and have no truly bad losses on their resume.

Current Verdict: Safely in the field.

2. TCU.

The Big 12 currently has a three way bubble battle between Oklahoma State, TCU, and Kansas State. TCU has wins over Iowa State, Texas Tech, and Kansas State, but hasn't really beaten any teams of note. TCU also has a poor loss to Auburn that is hurting its resume.

Current Verdict: Out without a big win

3. Seton Hall.

Another Big East bubble team, Seton Hall needs to finish out the season strong to secure a spot in the field. Kevin Willard's team currently has quality wins over South Carolina and Creighton boosting its resume. In addition, Seton Hall has just one poor loss against Stanford. Still, the team will definitely need to do more to get off the bubble and secure a spot in the field.

Current Verdict: Firmly on the bubble.

4. Georgia Tech.

How on Earth does anybody explain this team? Josh Pastner's squad lost to Ohio, Penn State, Tennessee, and Georgia early on in the season. Two of those are terrible losses. They then started conference play with a huge win over UNC and also have wins against Florida State, Notre Dame, and Syracuse. The team might be ninth in the ACC right now, but they boast enough quality victories to get into the tournament with a few more wins in their next four games.

Current Verdict: In need of another quality win to secure a NCAA tournament berth.
