How many teams does AAC get in NCAA tourn
Note, I thought I was posting on the AAC board when I posted this, but chime in if you want. How many bids for AAC and how difficult is it for Memphis and Houston to get in, outside of winning AAC.

With Cincinnati and SMU looking good for the tournament, what do we have to do to get Houston, Memphis, etc. in. Do they have to win the AAC tournament? Get to AAC finals? I was looking at Houston and Memphis RPI rankings and they are not that good, I think Houston's was in the 60s and Memphis in the 80s. But in ESPN's BPI index, Houston was like 33, so that was good. Which indexes do the committee go by, and how likely are some of these other teams to get in if they continue to play well. AAC needs to get at least 3 teams in.

Barring an upset in the conference tournament, the AAC is a 2-bid league.

Houston is interesting. If they could go 5-1 in last 6 games, with their great advanced metric numbers and what would then be a top 40 RPI, I think they would probably get in and actually fairly easily.

Yeah, Houston's looking strong in some of the numbers, so I was thinking they could get in, even if they don't win AAC tourn. Not sure why, but Memphis numbers seem to be really low, despite their good overall record.

Where's the marquee win for Houston? Rhode Island, especially when they were down a guy or two then, is not something to hang your hat on. Get those wins (yes, plural...both SMU at home and Cincy in their house will solidify any case they have).

I think Memphis looks more compelling. 4-6 against the RPI Top 100, of which, 2-3 of that mark is from the AAC (so 2-3 versus top 100 outside of the AAC). With Houston, their 4-5 is more like 2-1...it's all AAC for them. And, since when is Vermont EVER a good win?

It's early, but I think they're two bids unless Memphis or Houston grabs a win against SMU or UC, or someone makes the steal in the tournament...again, likely against SMU or Cincinnati. Those two basically own the conference.

I think it's possible for Memphis or Houston to get an at large but both would need to nearly win out the regular season. If one wins the conference tourney they'll be 3 bids, otherwise 2
