Those would be 2 of our 3 best wins of the season. We would absolutely be back in the discussion for an at large bid.Just throwing this out there in an optimistic fashion (I have no doubt it'll get thrown right back at me)...if we, and a big IF, beat Dayton tomorrow, get some new found confidence and beat SLU, we're right back in the tournament discussion. Our metrics will see a pretty sharp increase and we would also benefit from the national buzz of taking down Dayton. I realize it's an incredibly tall task, but a little optimism doesn't hurt. Also crazy to think that it'd be possible not to get a double bye, and still be in the at-large discussion should that happen.
Here's to hoping one bad week doesn't derail a season that once had so much promise. Hit our shots, run them off the 3 point line, REBOUND, and don't let Toppin do chin-ups on the rim in transition every other time up and down the floor and we have a chance.
