Final Seeding Scenarios

Recommended Posts

Well, with the loss tonight, North Texas is no longer in bye contention. The highest seed that North Texas will be able to get is the W4 seed. The W5 seed (the current seed) is also a possibility. If we win out, we get the W4 seed. If we do not, we get the W5 seed. Unfortunately that is the situation we are in.

We will be playing a first round game against either USA or Troy. USA will hold the tiebreak over Troy if both finish the season on the same record (they are both currently (6-9). If we end with the W4 seed, FAU will be waiting in the quarterfinal for us. If we get the W5 seed, it will be Denver, ULL, or ASU. ASU will win the West with a victory over UALR Saturday, and my gut feeling says that would be the best for us. Here is what the bracket looks like going into Saturday...by the way, the E2 spot will be decided by the game between WKU/MTSU on Saturday; winner takes it.

The teams in red are locked into their seeds.

I really, really wish I had better news, but we are going to have to win 4 in 4 days. I'm sure some people will say that can't happen, but I really don't have it in me to give up on these guys until the final buzzer in Hot Springs. For what it's worth, I think the W5 seed is much better, but who knows.

---I think that depends of your definition of "bye".. We are 4-8 in 2011 (after Jan 1).

What in the world happened to this thing? I blame Tony Mitchell.

It has been revealed in the past few weeks that injuries, injuries, and even more injuries have hobbled this team that was already not very deep... at least 2 of the starting 5 (White and Hogans - I knew about Hogans all season but not White), have played injured most of the season... and we've outright lost many players for the season, including the most recent and terrible loss of Holman.
