Mississippi State has a chance to become a quality win if they can do some damage in the SEC, but as of now it looks like they're a bottom tier SEC team.
Just as importantly, however, and something that shouldn't be overlooked ... UC has managed to take care of business against every cupcake team thus far this season. If they can beat Arkansas Pine Bluff they'll be sitting at 10 non-conference wins. If they go down to Memphis and beat the Tigers on the road, they've got a shot at 11 non-conference wins. Nevertheless, an 11-2 or 10-3 non-conference record heading into Big East play is nice to see, because they're giving themselves a chance to reach the NCAAs.
If UC can win 10 Big East games, they'll grab 20 wins and will be in the discussion for an NCAA bid.
If they keep playing like they are there sure is no reason for them not to make it. With that said I was pissed last night when with 4.2 seconds left FSN OHIO turns off the game! And puts on Blue jackets hockey pre show ? I mean what is the point of that total bull i live in Fairfield 20 mins away from UC! Anyway i will enjoy watching UC BBall this year
