This leads me to believe that the only effect our loss really had was to add more teams to the bubble. Davidson gets the autobid in his bracket because they’re currently first in the conference (they’re tied with UMass but own the tiebreaker).
St. Louis is on the Mississippi River, which flows into the Gulf of Mexico, which flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Trade Mississippi with James and Gulf of Mexico with Chesapeake Bay and you just described Richmond.Why is St. Louis in the Atlantic 10? VCU has six opponents (UR, GMU, Davidson, GW, LaSalle, St. Joe's) within a reasonable drive .... the Billikens, by comparison, wouldn't know what its like to play a road game with hopping aboard a silver bird.
