It's fine as long as it's between a 4 or 5, or 5 or 6......let's not lose any games so we don't possibly get screwed as in between a 7 or 8 seed....

Re: 2017-18 Bracketology

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.

If we beat Richmond but lose to St. Bonaventure, I think we will still be ranked.

However I don't think we will lose.

2 wins next week and we are league champs. Davidson will definitely lose at least another game.
