RE: ODU MBB Remaining Predictions
There is a 100% chance that I will be at the game on Thursday night. Hope we take the W.

You'd have to factor in a greater than 50% chance of beating them individually to get to a 30% probability of beating them both.

If we have a 40% chance of winning each game individually, the mathematical probability of winning them both is 16%. Increase to 45% and it is 20.25%. Increase to 50% and it is 25%. Increase to 55% and it is 30.25%.

More realistically, if we have a 50% of beating WKU and a 40% chance of beating MTSU individually, the chance of beating them both is 20%. I think that is closer to accurate.

But that will go up because other teams have an opportunity to beat them.

There is a greater probability today that someone beats us in the quarters than someone beating WKU or MTSU, based on the fact that we would be the 3 seed and more likely to face a stronger opponent like in that round. Our odds would improve if we finish with the 1 or 2 seed.

Let me be clear, I subjectively think this team has the talent and a very good chance, maybe even 50% of winning this tournament, particularly if we can stay out of foul trouble and continue to hit 3s at a higher rate as we did against USM and LT. I just can't come to grips with a fully objective mathematical probability at 30%. Seems impossible being the #3 team out of 12 when we have lost to #1 and #2 at home.

RE: ODU MBB Remaining Predictions
What a jump from last year.

This year Kenpom:
Off: 91
Def: 47

Last year Kenpom:
Off: 247
Def: 51

We are so much better than last year. It's not even close.

Edit: We are the number 1 offense and the number 3 defense, in CUSA.

That makes better sense, though I am surprised by the placement of WKU over us given their better computer numbers and the head to head at the Ted. Also, someone has to get the 4 seed and whoever does will have a vastly improved overall probability as the quarterfinal will be 100%.

RE: ODU MBB Remaining Predictions
Per their site:

Quote:A team's relative odds to win the 2018 C-USA Championship depend only partly on their CUSA bracket seed. Winning the C-USA Championship also depends on the dynamics of the 2018 CUSA bracket. In some cases, the team with a better C-USA Championship seed may actually face a harder path to the C-USA Championship championship than a team with a worse CUSA tournament seed.

In addition, because CUSA tournament seeds are based on win-loss records in CUSA conference games, CUSA tournament seeds are not always the most accurate measure of a team's true performance level. This is another reason why higher seeded teams in the CUSA bracket can have better odds to win the 2018 C-USA Championship than lower seeded teams in the CUSA bracket.
