Re: UK basketball question
I predict they'll squeeze into the NCAA Tournament, but it will be as a 15-16 seed.
They should still make the tournament but they won't be a 15 or 16 seed. They will probablly be a 10 or 11 and play someone like Oregon or Butler and lose by 3 or 4 due to a boneheaded play by Crawford or Bradley in the final minute. To be fair though they might not even deserve to be in the tournament. Who have they beat? I know their RPI is at 10 as of this morning but that is more because of who they have lost to (UNC, Memphis, UCLA, Florida) than who they have beat (a struggling UL at the time and Indiana? I am having trouble coming up with another big win). As much as the committee says tradition and history does not play a part in the selection process I bet it is UK's saving grace this year.
Never let facts get in the way of a good rant.
