I'd be very worried, Triad appears to be a master jinxer. He jinxes in a very subtle and unassuming way, but his jinxes are 100% effective, I haven't seen one fail yet. :cool:

Sad but true. Been jinxing the wrong teams... the teams i want to win Head bang

Just say will lose instead. I just hope we can overcome the Triad Jinx. @triaddukefan
Exactly, you understand his jinxing style, he just reinforced the jinx when he said there is "NO way" ND is losing on Friday. His Jinx against Dara Mabrey was really effective. We'll see if he's "got the power" on Friday. ;)

Although I think SC remains a host, I do believe the loss to Arkansas will drop them below Miami. Depending on what else transpires, this could make Miami a #3 seed and means that BOTH Miami and Syracuse could be in Albany (Miami as a low #3 seed and Syracuse as a high-ish #4).

After beating #13 Mia on a neutral court, I would think #15 Cuse moves ahead of Mia.

Mmmmm don’t know about that but maybe. Miami still has the road win at Syracuse, and those two wins over top 5 teams loom huge on the resume.

Either way, whichever one is deemed ahead of the other, the SC loss to Arkansas opens up a spot on the 3 line for one of them.

What I think is interesting is if MD wins the B10 tournament, do they take the final #2 spot? I would think Iowa wouldn't keep it, but could NC St then snag it?

Yes to your first question. For NC State to get the final #2, they need both Iowa and Maryland to lose.

Of course if NC St can beat Louisville today, then that makes them a #2 regardless of what Iowa and Maryland do.

Would be difficult fir Stan to lose a 2 seed.
A loss to UW, NCS over Lou at min. Even then I’d be skeptical.

It's not just wins. Or losses. It's the competition played. And then there is the eye test.

While this UConn team _can_ play very well, it is not a great team, as we have seen repeatedly in recent weeks.
I believe that UConn is a terrific team this season. Not as good as some previous years but they don't have to be this year. Don't fall for ESPN'S "parity" talking points. There are 3 teams that can win the NC barring significant injury. ND.UConn and Louisville.
