Bracket Matrix

Well, its been some time since the matrix has been very relevant to us. Yes, I know we still almost certainly need to win the conference tournament to get in...but its fun to look at where folks think we would be seeded if we do.

Prior to the MTSU game, 62% of the brackets have us in.
They have us as an average seed of 13 (anywhere from 12 to 14)

average seeds for other CUSA teams (according to the brackets that list them)
Marshall: 11.6 (5 brackets)
North Texas: 12 (1 bracket)
WKU: 12.25 (24 brackets)

RE: BracketMatrix
After multiple updates on 2/7

67% of the brackets have us in (63 of 94)
Average seed of 12.71 (still anywhere from 12 to 14)

The significant change is that we've moved up from a 13 to being the 6th (last) 12 seed

Avg seed of other teams:
Marshall: 12 (9 brackets, anywhere from 7 to 16--huh?)
WKU: 12.13 (31 brackets, anywhere from 10 to 13)
UNT: 13 (1 bracket)

RE: BracketMatrix
If you watched our game vs Charlotte that was on ESPNU. Not referring to us, Lunardi said that this year would likely be the year if a mid Major with a Poor resume but a lot of wins gets in as an at-large team if they lose in their conference tournament championship games. We may be in a better position than those undeserving .500 High Major teams that don’t have good noncon wins.

Don't underestimate the NCAA Tourney gods' desire to have Charles Bassey in the tournament...

RE: BracketMatrix
UAB received votes this week in AP poll #45 and coaches poll #37. Winning games at LaTech could possibly put UAB on a bubble watch. Strength of schedule is an issue UAB probably can't overcome. Jerry Palm has both UAB and WKy in his bracket for what it's worth too. Just keep winning and the eye test improves.

For UAB it isn't the eye test, it's staying in first place and having to win the conference tournament because of our weak schedule. I'm sure Palm has UAB getting the autobid and WKU getting an at-large due to some very good OOC wins for them.

RE: BracketMatrix
I think most of the brackets in the matrix default to the conference leader as the auto bid.

True. Fail to win the conference tourney and I think it’s mostly irrelevant for us. To me, the main point is to check out the seeding.

I’m just happy that it’s something even worthy of discussion in February

It is an exciting event if you are truly on the bubble.
I’m thinking that this series vs LT has huge implications.
A road win at LT would be exciting.

No doubt. I think they’re about 100 in the NET Rankings, which is significantly higher than anyone we’ve played of late. Big games this weekend.
