I'll ascribe us two sweeps and a 1-2 mark for the other three games. 22-8 with a 22 rpi...5/6, depending on the BET outcome.

Based on the different quality of 11 to 12 seeds and 3 to 4 seeds, we had better hope we get a 5.


Don't forget Bemidji State... that would make us 23-8.

Would love to see that going into the BET.. winning 2 games and losing in the Final would make us 25-9 with a loss in the Final to Nova. That would be pretty salty and maybe get is into #16 or so... what kind of a seed would that give us... a 4?

BTW... TEAM RANKINGS predicts us to have an RPI of 16 at the end of the regular season.

Bemidji State game doesn’t count for NCAA tourney purposes, does it?

You are correct. Bemidji St does not count for NCAA purposes (Div II).

Ok, got it, thanks for the clarification. So it's an exhibition in the middle of the season. :D

No. Not an exhibition for us. The win will count on the overall record, just not for NCAA bid/seeding purposes. Remarkably, the game is an exhibition for Bemidji...

slightly OT

what's the likelihood of two Number 1 seeds for BE?

Nova is pretty much a lock - but X has to be right there if they finish well

that'd be pretty big statement for the conference on top of

POY

Continued RPI success

personally, I hope we knock X out of any No. 1 seed talk. Heck, I wouldn't mind knocking Nova out of that also. But, I think one loss to CU won't kill its No. 1 seeding (maybe 2 if we take them out of the BET this year also). A fella can dream, can't he?

What if we won every game from here on out? :D
I would guess something like a 3 seed.

I seriously saw Marquette fans talking about that as a realistic chance last week before they lost a couple in a row.

Heck even if we went 7-1 (including Bemidji St.) I think we would be in the 3/4/5 seed discussion going into the Big East tourney. Any win over X and/or Nova will be a great resume win and avoidance of bad losses would be key too.
