It's possible that we end up with only 1 or 2 wins against tournament teams.  That seems light.  Granted, you don't have to be good to get in, just better than the rest of the bubble.

Yeah, it's not a coincidence that our mol against the top three teams is huge. There's no magic about those teams except that they're way better than the teams below us in the standings. No real opportunity for us to prove that we're better than good not great teams, hopefully that doesn't bite us on selection Sunday.

It's far more likely we end up with 6 than 1. We also will only have 1 loss to a non tourney team, whatever that is worth.

Yea, I just meant 1 or 2 as the low water mark.  Not that it is likely

TCU (2) Baylor (2),  if we sweep OU and UT they won’t make the tourney.   I guess if we lose to OU and UT and then it could be TCU (2) Baylor (2) UT (1) OU (1)

OU will make it, they need two wins, they should muster that.

Damn Rick Barnes already has Tennessee in the preseason top 10?!  Can you imagine being the downgrade that fired him?

king oscar really needs to build our bench if he wants to hold that ranking
we need 2 bench players to provide significant contribution offensively and someone who can play strong defense in the paint.  otherwise we’re too shallow for the more talented teams

He got that pretty average roster clicking at the end of last year, pretty hard to do, we are prolly top 20 but 10 is redic unless we are playing great
it’s not like I’m tired of WINNING, but dude, let me catch my breath.

I expected the same, BUT . . . that was painful to watch (in person). Here's my hope: Marquette continues to improve and becomes a "good loss" (by tourney/RPI standards) and their wins continue to bolster our RPI. Hopefully it was a wakeup call to our guards too. They got absolutely embarrassed by Marcus Howard  :horrorsurprise:

Not sure how good Marquette is, but Howard shot out of his mind.  In a regularly officiated game I think Barry could limit him.  Maybe we are not very good as some would suggest but I’m not convinced of that based on Saturday.

A 45 point game in college is pretty much always an anomaly, no matter how good the athlete is or how bad the defense is. We probably would not have won anyway, but certainly no reason to panic yet. I think dropping us to #16 is pretty fair.

Howard is now 8 games into his Junior season, and this was already his 9th game of 30+ points. his career high is 52 (vs Providence last year)

I guess it depends on what "very good" means. I don't think we are a top 20 team. Maybe borderline top 25. We are a good enough team that we should comfortably make the tournament, though.

Dropping to #16 is VERY kind, IMHO. I think we're more like a borderline top 20 team, but we have much greater potential if all cylinders start hitting in order (see last year's elite 8 appearance as evidence).

Howard alone was worth the price of Saturday's ticket. That kid was amazing to watch. I bet Barry & Co want a rematch to see if they can hold him in a 'fairly' called game. Here's hoping we can get that rematch in the NCAA torn-a-ment.

Trying to find meaning in a game where our starters spent a good portion of the game on the bench, and in which 50+ largely frivolous fouls were called is pointless.

Our ranking is fine. If we start shooting average, we're easily a top 15 team.
