Indiana Basketball: Early Bracketology Projects IU As NCAA Tournament Team
See the latest projections below for the two at-large play-in games, an all-ACC festival in Dayton that will likely be corrected as we move closer to Selection Sunday. Louisville , will finish the regular season with trips to Duke, Virginia Tech and N.
State, with a home date against Virginia wedged in. The Cardinals have a chance to augment their hollow profile — or sputter badly and potentially fall out of the field. One thing is clear: Unlike most years, they are far from a sure thing to pop up in the field of Miami, Syracuse, Louisville, N. State First four on the outside: Baylor, Murray State, N. Detroit 7 Oklahoma vs. Even at overall, the Sooners are not in immediate danger of falling out of the field. Bonaventure got the job done at home against Rhode Island on Friday.
Dallas 5 Ohio State vs. Dallas 3 Texas Tech vs. Pittsburgh 7 Arizona State vs. San Diego 5 Missouri vs. Detroit 7 Seton Hall vs. Yup, Kansas is back as a No. Just when you ponder writing off the Jayhawks. One, it beat Cincinnati. But with him healthy and balling they are definitely good enough to make a Sweet 16 run.
It would be a joke if this league got 10 bids. But then again it wouldn't stun me. Joe Lunardi, as of Feb. That, to me, is insane. Oklahoma is in its last 12 games, and their nonconference resume isn't THAT great. And Texas is barely above. The six we have here are rock solid. Providence missed a big opportunity to throw themselves into contention by losing by 10 at Xavier. At this point they are definitely a long shot.
But they will have an opportunity to get some huge resume wins in next week's Big East Tournament. I don't think that Penn State has as much of a chance as a lot of other prognosticators. Nebraska has zero nonconference wins to speak of. And their league resume is pretty weak as well. The Huskers are not safe, by any means, but if they beat Michigan in the Big Ten Tournament Friday then that could be enough. If they do make it then this team is likely headed for the play-in game.
This is definitely a league tournament to watch. Arizona and USC are the only two teams that can feel good about their bids, and I could honestly see this league get as few as three or four teams in the field. The SEC has had a Renaissance this season. This league is as deep and as balanced as any in the country, and their league tournament - randomly held in St. Louis this year - should be a free-for-all. Missouri needs to take advantage of having the tourney close to home.
And don't be fooled by Mississippi State's 21 wins; the Bulldogs have played the No. And if they don't make the field then they will have to be on the short list as one of the most disappointing teams in the nation.
As always, it comes down to St. And as always, I'm going to say that they absolutely should be in the field.
