Part of the problem is that theyre cutting the last few minutes up by their own 30 second possessions. BUT the other teams are scoring during that time.

Let's not draw LaSalle in the A10 tourney. They are athletic, as are the Dukes.

Can we adjust with our thin frontcourt? They are taking advantage of Berry especially....it sure is showing lately.

I doubt we'll be a 2 or 3 even if we win out.....and that's including the A10 tourney.

Yes our RPI indicates that, but our Kenpom and BPI don't. The committee will be using all 3 of those metrics when seeding. Throw in the SOR too.

A 4 if we win out, imo. 5 with one loss, 6 with 2 losses.
