That includes four Q1 wins, including two victories apiece over Creighton and Seton Hall. Those, however, are their only wins against tourney-bound teams. Good job, good effort, Arizona State. After the Sun Devils beat Kansas and Xavier by the middle of December, it seemed they would not only cruise into the tournament, but also be a Final Four contender. Those wins were a long time ago, though. The Sun Devils also lost four of their final five games of the season, at least two of which were against teams with no hope of earning an at-large bid Oregon State and Stanford.
They have to hope that the Selection Committee gives significant weight to the wins over Kansas and Xavier. After losing to West Virginia in the Big 12 quarterfinals on Thursday, the Bears head into Selection Sunday having lost four of their last five games.
They do have great wins over Kansas and Texas Tech, but both of those were at home. In most years, that might be enough, but this is not a typical season on the bubble. Nervous times ahead for the Bears. That might be a bridge too far. Oklahoma state has six Q1 wins. Baylor has four wins in Q1, including victories over Kansas and Texas Tech.
Even Louisville, which lost to Syracuse, has four Q1 victories and, unlike the Orange, zero sub losses. It will likely prove quixotic. Harvey—not gotten hurt, the Irish likely would be a tournament team. The Irish definitely could end up on the right side of the bubble. But the bet here is that it will be too little, too late. You are going to hear that Middle Tennessee is a bubble team this weekend.
They lost to Marshall twice, Belmont and, in the crushing denouement of their season, Southern Miss. Meanwhile, their best wins came against Murray State and Western Kentucky.
But Daniel Ricciardo's ultrasoift tyres are now starting to fall off - he's some four seconds behind Raikkonen now! We saw Fernando Alonso set a new fastest lap of the race earlier and how about this for another surprise pace-setter.
It's not over yet with 10 to go This is getting closer in that all-Finnish battle. Bottas' advantage over Raikkonen down to just one second as the Mercedes comes up behind traffic. Indeed, that's the closest battle out on track right now with Ricciardo a similar amount of time behind Raikkonen. Into the final 15 laps It's 13 to go in fact, with Lewis Hamilton coming through that trouble with traffic and re-establishing a lead of nearly four seconds.
But it's looking comfortable for Verstappen in second place too, he's 6. Sirotkin gets a 5-second penalty And the Williams is straight in to serve that at a pit stop. The effect of new tyres is great around here even though, in the McLaren's case, they are the slowest compound available. He's down in 13th, so unlikely to score points anyway, but the team still aren't happy with that. Ricciardo on the charge Daniel Ricciardo continues to close on Kimi Raikkonen in the battle for fifth - and another new fastest lap puts him just 2.
Hamilton re-increases his lead Max Verstappen was right on his gearbox a few laps ago but, since clearing that chaotic traffic, Lewis Hamilton has steadily increased his advantage up front again.
That's really worked out well for the Spaniard and McLaren. He retains the position he pitted from. Drive-through penalty for Perez The stewards have seen the Force India's argy-bargy with Sirotkin the same way as our pundits and applied the third-most severe in-race penalty available to them. Hamilton's lead is back up to three seconds, but that blue flag fiasco has not helped his tyres. Alonso pitting from seventh And Charles Leclerc follows him in for Sauber.
That's what many will start to call commanding for Lewis Hamilton Hamilton kneels down next to his Mercedes after the race. Bottas holds on to fourth, ahead of Raikkonen and Ricciardo. The full top 10 and points finishers 1. Victorious Hamilton on team radio "Keep pushing, keep pushing.
