This team won't make the tournament. I'll make a friendly wager on that, if you want. The teams they've played thus far are a combined 25-37. None of these teams are going to be in the NCAA Tournament, outside of one of them pulling off a big upset in their conference tournament.
It's true there are chances for big wins in the Big East, but there's also the chance for a ton of losses.
Now, I'll say this: I like their passing. They have a lot of guys that move the ball around well. As a team, they're assisting on over 2/3 of their made field goals, which is excellent. And this team plays solid defense. I think Kilpatrick & Dixon are solid players, with Yancy improving a lot this year.
Problem is, they simply don't have the kind of scoring and firepower to beat the better teams. I just don't see it. They're better, but they're not an NCAA Tournament team.
