We're in the bracketmatrix field for the first time since November as an 11 seed. We're included in 62 of 92 brackets. Virginia and VCU are the last teams in, and Memphis is the first team out. Here's how those resumes look right now (Q1,Q2,bad losses):

Cincinnati (1-5, 6-0, 3)
Virginia (2-3, 3-2, 2)
VCU (1-4, 2-2, 0)
Memphis (1-2, 5-2, 2)

We're not the only team struggling to get Q1 wins. We might even have two when the NET rankings come out Monday morning. We're also not the only team with multiple bad losses.

Please refrain from positivity. We don't need that.

We absolutely need to go 6-1 in our last 7 games to have any chance as an at large

I ran T-rank again going 5-2 the rest of the way. Winning our 5 most likely and losing our 2 most likely by their probability (Houston and USF away).

The result was a 10 seed. It's definitely not fool proof but we should at least be on the bubble even with 2 more losses. I think 1 loss and we are in. 2 losses and maybe we need to win a couple in the tourney.

We didn't lose too much steam at Uconn but we have to keep playing like we need to win every game. 10 seed sounds good to me...I would rather be there than the 8 or 9 anyway

The fact that we are currently right on the bubble means we just have to match the other bubble teams to stay there. Going 6-1 the rest of the way is clearly going to put us above them. 5-2 probably keeps us in the same position, and our chances will depend on how the other bubble teams perform. 4-3 and we are going to need a ton of help, but there's still faint hope for an at-large.

We're the first team out in the latest bracketmatrix, included in 48 of 96 brackets. Arizona St squeaked by us with 50. I think that's accurate. The Sun Devils match our 7 quality wins (3 in Q1) and have no bad losses.

There's quite a bit of separation below us though. Miss St and Minnesota have considerably worse resumes than ours.
