Path to NCAA Tournament

Posted By: Sandy Ute
Date: Wednesday, January 11, 2017 at 11:22 am

We could get a nice little streak of 3 consecutive years getting an invite to the NCAA tournament if we get in this year. Our longest streak is 6, 1995-2000. I'd really like to see Larry Krystkowiak make his mark in the history books and meet or exceed this achievement.

Here's how I see the rest of the season playing out:

We're 11-4 as of now.

USC - win
UCLA - loss
at WAZZU - win
at Washington - win
Oregon - loss
Oregon State - win
at CAL - loss
at Stanford - win
WAZZU - win
Washington - win
at Oregon - loss
at Oregon State - win
at Colorado - win
CAL - win
Stanford - win

That would put us at 22-8. Given the strength of our conference, 22 wins should be enough to get us in without having to win any additional conference tournament games.

I think this is very doable.

o NEW: I think the PAC-12 gets 5-6 teams into the tourney. There is a clear top 3, with UCLA, Arizona and Oregon. USC may be in that league or just outside of it. That means we need to be the best of the rest. This USC game is HUGE. If we can end up 4th or

TheJuggernaut icon NEW: That beating is unlikely to happen this season. Maybe next.

TheJuggernaut icon NEW: 13-5 in conference will almost surely get us in, but I don't see it. IMO we're more like 11-7 in conference, then probably needing to win a couple of games in the PAC tournament to get in.

utefansince79 icon NEW: San Fran is going to be a 'bad loss' in the eyes of the commitee. Need some quality wins in conference to make up for it.
