Uggh. Thank good we beat Duke
I believe he was talking about Ohio St.What are you talking about? They lost on the road to a buzzer beater against a quality MAC team and then beat a top MAC team on the road. Ideally the only lose one more MAC game and they’ll get an auto bid.
They will have to totally tank the season in order to not be a Q1 win by the end of the season. Right now, they stand at 46 in the NET. Yes, that is down from earlier in the season, but they will probably end up in the 50's or possibly 60's. They won't lose out.It won't be for long they are sinking like a stone.
The OSU Q1 win most definitely factor into our seeding. And indirectly, the Buffalo Q1 loss could be a factor also (SOS-wise).We aren't a bubble team and we will control our seeding not what teams we played the first year of the month end up doing. This stuff is nauseating especially with how much parity there is in the top leagues after a couple teams.

Sorry, you're missing the point. The selection committee looks at who we beat, to whom we lost, SOS, etc. This is all factored into the new NET (NCAA Evaluation Tool - which replaces the RPI).We will be in but we will have a decent amount of losses. We will be in line for a higher seed than teams with 2-3 fewer losses than us. The following will determine seed:
ACC road scalps vs ranked teams
Don't lose both ACC marquee home games vs UVA and Duke
Don't bomb out of the ACC tournament as we have every single year and for once make it to Friday
How our OOC opponents fare down the stretch really isn't going to matter. The above things are what will give a Syracuse team with 9 losses a 4 seed over a team with 6 losses not how uconn or Ohio St fare.
