From ESPN.com Bubble Watch:
Holy Cross [24-6 (13-1), RPI: 51, SOS: 180] Fell in Patriot League finals at home to Bucknell, which almost certainly condemns Crusaders to NIT. 1-3 vs RPI Top 50 and 21 wins outside RPI Top 100.

Saint Joseph's [18-11 (14-2), RPI: 56, SOS: 99] Hawks fell to GW in A-10 final and very well may have to settle for an NIT bid. SJU is overall A-10 regular-season champ, but loss to awful Rhode Island team and poor non-conference performance might make A-10 a one-bid league.
Having seen both teams play several times (HC 7 in person, SJ 1 in person and 3 or 4 on TV), I can't buy any argument that has the Hawks in and the Crusaders out.

That said, I must add that this would be a dandy NIT matchup.
