MU would beat WKU if we played them on their own court. Go online and look at their schedule and who they have played and lost to.  If MU loses this game would be the worst loss in MU tournament history. Not gonna happen, crowd or no crowd.

Ok, Seton Hall and StJohns didn’t get in. Too bad, time to move on. MU is in, two seed and the Shaka jinx of not getting thru to Sweet 16 is going to end.
St John should have been in, even though Pitino is a slimeball

St. John’s and Seton Hall got totally screwed.
I honestly did even think SJU was on the bubble. I thought everyone agreed they were in.

Early line ... Marquette -15.5
All the more reason we need to rest Kolek, Oso, Stevie and Ross for fear they may aggravate their injuries

Jay Bilas with some nice words about MU and our chances with Kolek. Jay Williams not so much.
I'm just happy we don't have to hear Billy Packard tell us all how the ACC invented the game of basketball.

Bracket Matrix had both SJU and Seton Hall out. It's not a surprise. Oklahoma probably has a bigger argument over Virginia than anyone.

I'm sorry Virginia and so many from the Big Whatever, pathetic.  They love slobbering over The Big XII, yuck.

There are probably 10 teams that have a legit argument over UVA.

@ryancassidycbb

Virginia went 2-7 in Q1 games
They are #69 on KenPom
The Strength of Schedule was #77

Seton Hall went 5-8 in Q1 games
They are #62 on KenPom
The Strength of Schedule was #42

The Committee went with Virginia

Virginia had a better SOR (strength of record) and NC SOS.

Looks like the bid thieves cost Oklahoma, Seton Hall, and Indiana State, in that order.

Oregon, NC State, Duquense, and UAB playing their way to autobids.

Expect to play Wisconsin in the elite 8

More likely Wisco loses the first round than make the E8, IMO.
I would take the Rick SLU program right now.

Take a look at St. Johns and Seton Hall's non-conference performance. That's why they didn't get in.

Has anyone watched JMU since they punked Izzo?  I'm just concerned their team is only slighter taller than James Madison.

Not hard to envision the Badgers not shooting well and losing.

One might think that with Marquette being located in Milwaukee (nor the UP) that the Journal Sentinel would have something to say aboot them being a #2 seed. Instead, there were not 1, not 2, but 3 articles on the Badgers in the Top Headlines - compared to 0 mentions about Marquette.

Truly pathetic, if unsurprising.

None of the ESPN talking heads picked Marquette to reach the Elite Eight.  They obviously hate Marquette.

Or really respect Kentucky

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Totally inexcusable.  The editor should be shown the door.

Wasn’t impressed by the Selection Chair. Seemed pretty clueless and incompetent.
