With less than two weeks until Selection Sunday, which teams could use a late lift? Well, everyone in the last eight out — notably Oklahoma State, Purdue, Michigan and West Virginia — would be wise to win.

Florida State is a tricky case. If the Seminoles can beat undermanned Miami this weekend, then get back point guard Toney Douglas (broken hand) for the ACC tournament and win a game, they’ll present a curious case. Florida State rolled up some nice wins with Douglas (Florida, Maryland, Virginia Tech and at Duke) and could be looked upon favorably if it can just prove he’s healthy.
