looking ahead..

we're 7th in the league right now, which means we'd play the 10th seed Tulsa with the winner getting Cincinnati in the quarter finals. Bracket looks something like this right now:

First Round

(8) SMU
(9) Wichita State (1pm ESPNU)

(5) USF
(12) Tulane (3pm ESPNU)

(7) UConn
(10) Tulsa (8pm ESPNU)

(6) Memphis
(11) ECU (10pm ESPNU)

Second Round

(1) Houston vs (8) SMU/(9) Wichita St (Noon ESPN2)

(4) UCF vs (5) USF/(12) Tulane (2pm ESPN2)

(2) Cincinnati vs (7) UConn/(10) Tulsa (7pm ESPNU)

(3) Temple vs (6) Memphis/(11) ECU (9pm ESPNU)

we need to avoid the 8/9 death trap that we're flirting with right now, whether that means winning more or losing more. Only chance at it is to get Jalen healthy again and go through the 2 seed side, although I think UCF is beyond beatable if we line up against them.

I don't know how you broke down tie-breakers but there's very little separation right now except at the top and the bottom. Houston/Cincy are both 9-1. UConn is in a 3-way tie at 4-6, but Memphis is just 5-5 and Tulsa is 3-7. Everyone still has 8 or 9 games left. Long way to go.

yeah the 10 or 11 seed is a lot more likely for us

Anything but the 8/9 seed.
So help me if we have to play in the middle of the day on day 1 and then midday day 2 against Houston.

6/7/10/11 is what we want.

you are right. I updated the above post to reflect the conference standings from the conference website: American Athletic Conference - 2018-19 Men's Basketball Standings
