Dayton just got hammered at St Joes seven days ago. They are a fine team and have wins over SLU and St Bona in 2 of their last 3 games, but by no means are they rolling.Think I’d prefer URI over Dayton. Flyers seem to be rolling and URI is without Shepherd. But they seem to be our Achilles heel.
St Joes is a better team with Daly back in the rotation. Wouldn’t be surprised if they upset someoneDayton just got hammered at St Joes seven days ago. They are a fine team and have wins over SLU and St Bona in 2 of their last 3 games, but by no means they are rolling.
Yeah, that was me. The A-10 has not handled this season well at all.I have to agree with Mooney. Something should have came out in advance to prevent this from happening. Something like, change when designated seeds play their games. I’m kinda on the fence about this from a personal standpoint. I like the famialirity of playing at home but not what it could do to our at large chances losing a home game in the quarterfinals.
After seeing that graph someone put up about how the A 10 was next to last in conferences with regards to percentage of scheduled games played, it sure does seem plausible this was mishandled as well.
You mean the Dayton team that is 3-4 in their last 7 games and a winner of ONE in a row? Just a little humor. Both Dayton and a Rhody scare me. I’d like to get a bye to the Finals, but that never seems to happen.Think I’d prefer URI over Dayton. Flyers seem to be rolling and URI is without Shepherd. But they seem to be our Achilles heel.
When the dust settles late Sat night 13 Mar and the field is "essentially in place," 90-95% (or approx 42-44) of the Top 46 NET will likely be in the dance. Those that are "most in jeopardy" for possible exclusion will be the lower range NET 36-46 squads with the "fringe" resumes (particularly the non-P6 programs like VCU, Drake, Colo St, Utah St, Boise St, St Bonny, St Louis, etc - assuming they are in that range at that time). NET 1-35 are essentially locks (unless an anomaly like Colgate exists).
The remaining 24-26 teams will be 1) from one-bid conferences and 2) outlier NET teams w/ national pull (like Mich St, Duke, Syracuse, etc).
If you're VCU, Bonny, or St Louis, you desperately want to end up in that Top 46 NET grouping (and preferably Top 35-ish) by Sat night 13 Mar.
AA - just saw this on Twitter.
