Updated bracketmatrix has us as the top 6-seed, just .01 behind San Diego State. We're closer to being the second 5-seed than we are to being the second 6-seed. Behind us on the 6 line are Providence, Baylor and Missouri.

We're in every bracket, with the worst seed being a 9 and the best being a 4. We're a 4 in three brackets.

It was updated on 1/9. It is aptly named “Novice Opinion’s Bracket Prediction.”

Win it next two and I think we finish with a 2/3 seed. I say keep going.

Bracket Matrix currently has 64 brackets that have been updated since January 8, 2023 (the automatically remove any brackets that haven't been updated since then). MU is currently 18th on their S-Curve (2nd 5-seed). Here's what some of the 17 teams ahead of them have done since 1/8:

17: Duke lost at Clemson
16: Miami-Fl lost at NC State
15: Arkansas lost big vs Alabama and big at Vandy
14: Iowa State lost close at Kansas
11: Kansas State lost big at TCU
10: Gonzaga barely escaped at BYU
9: Texas barely escaped vs. TCU and vs. Texas Tech
8: Arizona lost big at Oregon
6: Tennessee lost vs Kentucky
5: UConn lost at Marquette

X also checks in at 12 on their S-Curve. Win tomorrow and I don't think a 3-seed is out of the question when bracketmatrix does it's next update.

Im sticking by what I have been preaching for the last few weeks. This is not your Steve Wojo coached team right now. This is a top 10 team in the country and No one and I repeat No one will want to play this team in the postseason. This team IMO will Win the Big East Conference Championship. They will get a 3/4 seed in the NCAA Tournament and honestly if they keep playing this way could get up to a 2 seed. I fully believe this team has what it takes to make the final four. Obviously once the matchups come out anything can happen and thats very bold to say but our offense is out of this world right now.

The problem with the fanbase is everyone is so scared to actually see how good this team is without reverting back to the last 10 years of mediocre basketball. When this team wins the next two games, they will jump into the top 10 with the hardest part of the schedule behind them. This is the most excited ive been about MU basketball since the elite 8 win over Miami in 13.

Love the excitement and positive mojo. IMO, the big difference between ‘13 and now is that I believe we are positioned for the future. In ‘13 I was 100% convinced that Buzz was gone and to simply enjoy that moment.

Not only is this season exciting, quite possibly it is just the start of the resurgence of the program. This season might be one of the special runs that we always talk about, but I believe there is a good chance to just the start of building the MU basketball brand.

If MU avoids wholesale transfers or early departures, next season's team is going to be filthy.

This year is already a lot of fun.

Pretty much every semester, WoJo had a transfer out, and so did Buzz.  Remind me, who has transferred out under Shaka?  Anyone significant yet?

While early departures for the NBA might hurt short term (imagine this team with Justin Lewis!), it is a nice problem to tell recruits about.

Nailed it. This is one of the youngest teams in D1 ball. We’re knocking on the door of a protected seed. It’s mind blowing

He had a bunch when he first came on board (Akanno, Cain, Garcia.) DJ Carton turned pro after initially signing on to the Shaka program.  Greg Elliott transferred last off-season.

And he will likely have a transfer this off season.

We haven't.  MU has too many players on scholarship next year.   Who leaves?    If the starting line up all returns, how many of the bench players are going to be content knowing what their minutes and role will be?    Just human nature.

So, somebody has to leave, either by early departure or transfer.   

If MU can avoid wholesale departures, they should be really good next season.

Greg exhausted eligibility at MU. I wouldn’t knock Shaka for Wojo’s guys leaving.

Greg could have come back for another year.

And I'm not knocking Shaka for anything. Merely answering his question.

Yes.  A la Brad Davison at UW. That's why he has the eligibility to play at Pitt.

This. So this.

People fear a February fade and/or a March embarrassment because that's what happened in the past. Have people not read the great work by brew, Wiz and others about our starting 5 being the best statistically in college basketball and about us having a top-5 offense?

I know it's human nature -- and definitely fan nature -- to always look to the past as a guide to the future. (And I'm not claiming that I'm immune to it, either.)

But this team is not Buzz's last team or Wojo's teams or even last year's team. It's a hell of a team. Scoopers need to let themselves enjoy this effen wonderful season without constantly dreading what boogeyman might be lurking behind the corner.

I'm even trying to not think about how much better we'll be next season. Not always succeeding at that, but I'm trying real hard to be totally in the moment with this incredibly hard-working, high-performing, likeable, high-IQ, easy-to-enjoy group of Warriors.
