Not a great day. Despite some close games late, all of our seeding competition won except for Louisville (who lost to North Carolina).

UConn won by 7, jumps to #89 in NET. USF dropped to #99.

Xavier won by 2. Stay at #70.

Memphis won by 15. The drop one spot to #54.

UNLV lost by 8. They fall one spot to #158 in NET.

Ole Miss lost to Alabama by 5. They stay at #36.

SMU won by 9. SMU rises to #98 in NET and are a Q2 game for us today as it stands. Tulsa drops 6 spots to #95.

Wichita St won by 16. They rise to #87.

Miss St beat Texas A&M by 24. They rise to #20.

Ohio State beat Indiana by 4. They stay at #55.

Friday, March 15th Resume Games

UConn (89) vs. Houston (4)
12:00 PM

A UConn win pushes them closer to Q1/Q2 status for our two victories over them.

Memphis (54) vs UCF (27)
2:00 PM

A UCF win preserves our Q1 win over them at home. A Memphis win/run in the AAC tourney would likely mean they are a Q1 game if we were to face them in the final.

Xavier (70) vs Villanova
6:30 PM

A Xavier win further solidifies their spot in Q2 for our victory over them. A loss likely wouldn't hurt them too bad though.

Wichita State (87) @ Temple (51)
9:00 PM

A Wichita win pushes them closer to Q1/Q2 status for our two wins over them. A Temple win would likely ensure that our potential semi-final match-up would be a Q1 game.

Close games across the board but only Nevada ended up losing.

Luckily UCF only dropped to #29 with yesterday's blowout loss to keep our Q1 win over them intact. SMU also stayed set at #98 which more or less guarantees yesterday's win will stay a Q2.

At this point our resume is practically set in stone with today's game being guaranteed for Q2 status and tomorrow's for Q1 if we win.

0 for 4 today. Gonna be tough to snag a 6 seed. I don't think Villanova or Iowa St will fall to 7 as conference tourney champs. A loss to Tennessee probably won't knock Auburn down either. Buffalo took care of business. We might be able to push them, Miss St or Maryland out, but Wofford should also be in the mix.

Yes it will be tough but Iowa St has 11 losses and Miss St and Maryland have 10. Marquette will have a worse NET than us, has played awful down the stretch and has 9 losses. Buffalo will have a top 15 NET and is probably deserving of a 6.

I know they dont use it but our RPI is 18 and would have had us in a better position to get a higher seed this year. I am hoping for a good draw that avoids Duke, UNC, Virginia, Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan St, LSU, Tennessee, Florida St and preferably not Texas Tech. I think we can beat just about any other team in the round of 32, if we make it there. A sweet 16 would be fantastic.

Lol. That's 10 teams, and we can't be matched up with Houston. So out of the top 3 seeds the only one not listed is Gonzaga. The only way to avoid those teams is to get a 5 seed.
