Re: Tournament selection thoughts -- 5 for sure, 6 possible?

February 24, 2012 09:34AM
From what I read 5 teams are pretty much in: KU, mOO, BU, KSt and ISt.

And depending on what Texas (17-11, 7-8) does these last 8 days and in KC, they could be going, too. They should end the season --
Win at Tech
Win v OU
Loss at KU
for a 19-12, 9-9 record, and then win at least 1 game in KC to get to 20-12.

But, if the standings remain unchanged, getting that win in the B12T will be tough, as their 1st game will be against Baylor.
(B12T bracket).

Texas would have to get to #5 to avoid Baylor, and even then they would get ISt, but it would be a neutral court, so that's still better than facing Baylor for #20.

However, if KState should stumble and lose 2 of it's last 3 (no way they lose 3 of 3) to end up in a tie with Texas, the tiebreakers will tell the tale. They split their head-to-heads this year, so would it go to a coin flip for seeding?

KState losing 2 of 3 to ISU in Manhattan, @A&M (although it should be a great game) and closing out against OkSt in Manhattan? Just don't see it.

Still, even if Texas doesn't get to 20 wins, looking at The Bracket Project's 2012 Matrix, 64 of the 82 bracket projections being followed have Texas making it in.

But I just don't think Texas makes it this year.
