With convention tournaments in full swing across the nation, we will probably be updating our projections every day main as much as Choice Monday. As we enter Thursday’s motion, there are two massive storylines: Will the ultra-soft bubble harden just a little bit at this time? Which groups within the 13-16 vary will bolster their internet hosting possibilities at this time?
Trying on the prime eight seeds, there’s no change when it comes to the eight groups. Nonetheless, we did flip Clemson and Stanford after the 2 groups received video games on Wednesday. The Tigers are 5 spots forward of the Cardinal and the metrics proceed to be of their favor. However once more, that’s a minor change.
By way of the 9-16 hosts, we proceed to really feel like Auburn and Alabama are serving to their jockeying positions with spectacular showings to date this week in Hoover, whereas Kentucky stays within the Prime 16 with its superior RPI of two and powerful throughout the board metrics. The Massive 12 continues to be a large number with all three contenders — West Virginia, Oklahoma State and Texas — dropping into the 20s. The Longhorns is perhaps within the worst spot at 27, whereas OSU and WVU really play in an elimination recreation on Thursday. All three of these groups want wins. We inserted South Carolina and Indiana State. The Gamecocks must beat A&M this morning to really feel assured, whereas Indiana State is an attention-grabbing check case. The committee loves schedule intent, and the Sycamores scheduled the No. 3 non-conference power of schedule to go along with a Prime 10 RPI. That sparks this query: If Indiana State can’t host with these two metrics of their favor, when will it ever host? With no different contenders standing out proper now, the Sycamores may find yourself being in a powerful place with extra Massive 12 carnage at this time.
The SEC has probably the most projected bids with 10. The ACC is subsequent with 9, adopted by the Massive 12 with seven of 9 groups making the sphere. The Pac-12 is subsequent up with six bids, whereas the Solar Belt and Massive Ten every have three groups within the area, with the Massive West having two in UCSB and UC Irvine. The Colonial is the one different league with a number of bids, and that’s with two in Northeastern and UNC Wilmington (the projected auto bid winner).
