Punching your ticket to Frisco: Battle for MBB Seeds 9-12
Going into this week we got:
FIU! 5-6
USM 5-6 showing signs of life
LATech 5-6 (welcome back!)
FAU 4-7 (getting swept at home)
Then
Rice 2-8 (0-1 moves up a spot)
UTEP 2-9
clt 1-10 (but showing well on Saturday)

FAU’s still got work to do to sew up the invite but this really is a 3 dog race right now.

Yup, there are some key games down the stretch that will determine who gets a ticket.

Middle doesn't play any of these guys down the stretch, that will get WKU closer (ODU is a lock for the 3 seed)

I need a tiebreaking expert here. So, for a two-way tie, it goes head to head then to record against the rest of the conference going from the top to the bottom (I think). Assuming UTEP loses out and assuming Rice beats UTEP March 1 and loses to everyone else, we'd both be at 3-15. UTEP's 2 non-Rice victories this year are over FIU and Charlotte. Rice's 2 non-UTEP victories would be over FIU and Charlotte. What would be the next tiebreaker?

Never mind. I think I figured it out. In the above scenario, Rice would have to lose to FIU. That would mean UTEP would be 1-0 against FIU and Rice 1-1. Unfortunately, that would break the tie in UTEP's favor.

UTEP gets the big comeback win Thursday @Charlotte to get their third... but turns around and gets more than doubled up at ODU tonight. (5:2’d up?). That loss gives Rice an inside track on the possible 2-way tiebreaker against UTEP (if Rice can square up when they host UTEP in the final week)

Meanwhile FAU gets a nice win tonight against Flinternational. Congrats and start packing your bags FAU, I believe you are coming to Frisco!

I’m going to claim to be a tiebreaking expert. Here’s the kicker on the tiebreaker this year. 0-1 is better than 0-2. It says so in the tiebreaker rules.

So... let’s say the standings stay as they are and Rice and UTEP both stumble their way down the stretch with Rice’s only win at home vs the Miners. At 3-15, LATech is the highest seeded team that Rice and UTEP have a different record against. And Rice would only be 0-1 against them while UTEP could be 0-2.

Tiebreaker at 3-15 goes to Rice. (Unless FAU or FIU catch or pass LATech).
At 4-14 its even more complicated but in that scenario a UTSA win could elevate Rice, or a LATech or USM win could elevate UTEP.

It’s Complicated, and silly. Much like the brand of basketball our two teams play.

Mucho style points to UTEP this week for a stellar 1-1 week all while losing a game by 49.

Could have sworn it was the other way around (0-1 was not better than 0-2). Thanks for the good news then.
