RE: Potential 1st Round Matchups: Who do you want?
Wake and Syracuse both got bumped. All kinds of big games today. Looking forward to at least a couple of upsets. Rooting against Xavier, USC, Michigan, Michigan St., Nevada, California, Vanderbilt, and Northwestern. Rooting for Western Michigan and St. Bonn.

Lunardi has only got the exact # seed right 53% over the past 5 years (it has improved). He is accruate within +/- 1 # seed 87% over the last 5 years.

I think UNCW should be an 11 or 10 seed given RPI, away/neutral record, and performance in Charleston. The Hawks just did not have the opportunity to play home games against the top 50 or top 25 like other teams did.

I'm only rooting for upsets in mid-major tournaments. Upsets in the P5 could steal our 10 or 11 seed hopes.

It would be nice if that were taken into consideration instead of rewarding schools for not playing us

Using the seeds that Lunardi has on 3/9, My perfect scenario would be #5 SMU in Greenville on Friday night for the right to play Duke/Princeton.

Don't want to play anyone in the ACC first round.

Dayton losing in the A10 quarterfinals is a nice development. They should be seeded lower (worse than) than UNCW.

SMU (projected 5 or 6 seed) just squeezed by ECU by 4

I would love it if we drew SMU actually. That's a favorable matchup for us.

Its the A-10 way. And not a a chance. Dayton will still likely be on the 9 line, 10 at worst. Your best case scenario will be the same see as them.

Squeezed by is one way of putting it. It was not even a game at halftime. SMU was up by 22. They were coasting in second half and it almost bit them. Heck with 7 minutes left it was still an 18 point game before ECU went on a very quick 24-7 run over the next 4 minutes. Then the final 3 minutes stayed relatively close. ECU led the game 5 minutes into the game and never even tied it up after that until just under 1 minute left in the game. What I am saying is the game really was not that close. SMU will be a tough out.

Any 5, 6, or 7 seed will be a "tough out". That's why they have a higher seed. They're good an they earned it. I appreciate the facts on the game not being that close throughout, but that "tough out" statement is basic.

I watched most of that game, it wasn't close. It was a garbage time run by EZ

I could also see the creation of a rematch between UNCW and Maryland. They could then hype the rematch and run clips of our heartbreaking loss.

RE: Potential 1st Round Matchups: Who do you want?
With Duke and UNC likely to both be in the 1/2 seed range, that likely eliminates the chance of going to Greenville SC as we are not going to be a 16, 15, 8, 9, 7, or 10 seed. ESPN now has us in Orlando playing Florida. I honestly hope we get out west

Indeed. May I propose a lifetime ban for making mention of that horrid occurrence? 03-wink
