Here to chat for a bit.
Andy.... will the March 7 season-ender between Pitt and UConn be the most-anticipated regular season game in years? If they hold serve, they'll enter that game as #1 and #2 in the polls.
Hard to say. Let's see what happens with Marquette against Pitt or Connecticut. Also, don't count out Louisville just yet. The Cardinals are still right there to win the league. They could be going for the league title later that night in Morgantown.
if KU wins out and wins the big 12 tourney, do they get a 1 seed?
I don't see KU having the overall resume to get a No. 1 seed but KU could be climbing higher and higher from a No. 4.
hey Andy,how many A-10 teams do you see in the tournament?
Maybe two. Definitely Xavier. Not 100 percent convinced on Dayton just yet. I expect the Flyers to be in but waiting to make sure they don't flop.
Is Wake still a viable national championship contender in your mind?
Yes. Need to play some defense on the 3-point line, though.
If Siena College doesn't win the MAAC do they have a shot at an at-large bid?
Have a shot, but it could be difficult based on what happens around the country. Siena has a great power rating, but didn't win key games outside of the MAAC.
What are your thoughts on Renardo Sidney going to USC?
I want to make sure he actually plays next season instead of going overseas or wherever before making a judgment.
You don't see Temple getting a bid if they can knock off Dayton Saturday?
No I don't.
Andy, Is there anything Siena can do to "ensure" itself an at large bid? Even though they lost the "difficult" non conference games, does the committee consider the fact they were competitive at both Kansas and Pitt (where nobody wins) or is it you lost too bad?
Win. That's what they have to do.
Can Notre Dame make the NCAA Tournament without winning the Big East Tourny? Is UCONN a must win for that to happen?
If the Irish get to 8-10 or 9-9 and then win a game or two they should get into the field.
can u defend a 2 seed for memphis?
Sure. Memphis may not lose again and would have a gaudy record and is playing as well as anyone in the country. If other teams continue to lose then they have a chance to move up.
Hey Andy love your stuff. Can you just tell me what you think of the Utes and how high of a seed can they get if they win out?
Utah is playing exceptionally well right now. The Utes are a lock in my book barring a collapse.
what do u think of providences chanes of gettinhg in the field
Need to beat Pitt and then do even more the rest of the season and in the Big East tournament.
if basketball had a bcs system who would be the two best teams
Thankfully they don't. Pitt vs. NC?? This could be changed daily.
Thanks for the chat today. We'll chat again next week.
