Chance of Tourney? NIT?



What are our chances for either Tourney this year? Do we even have a shot? I know we have a good slate of games coming up for some wins...

The NIT could be tough because there may be 10 SEC teams with a winning record. Even if we finish 18-12, we could have as bad as the 8th RPI in the conference I'm guessing. Since only 3 SEC teams will probably make the NCAA tournament, I'd say we would be on the NIT bubble if we split the rest of our games.

If we win out and win the SEC Tourney, we'll make to the NCAA tourney. Is this possible?

If we can avoid Florida in the early rounds of the sec tourney, And somehow Florida gets upset then we will make the NCAA I think we could beat any other SEC team

I dug up the last 10 seasons around this time last year....

The "magic numbers", IIRC is:

- .500 in the SEC
- 19 wins
- win two SEC tournament games

.... will get you to the dance.

It was something like 67 out of 70 SEC teams over 10 years that hit those numbers. One was when the sub .500 Georgia team won the tourney and bounced somebody, and one was the year the committee left out MSU at 22-7 or whatever.

Still possible for this season for the Tigers.

Conference is terrible. They'll be lucky to get 5 teams in

5!! The SEC would be lucky to get 3 in this year (unless someone unexpected wins the SEC tourney, which this year is highly possible)

I say about 2% chance we make the NCAA tourney just because we have to win the SEC tourney

NIT I say about 45%

We went on something like a 14-2 run in the 2nd half when we finally started pressing. They couldnt get the ball past half court during the run. Their big guy hit two long 3s to end the run and we lost all momentum and they pulled away. We can play with florida if we press early. They also had a key injury a few weeks ago that will help.
