Temple
Amazing to think but after last night- if Temple can win all 3 home games (ECU, Houston, UCF)- and win 4/5 on the road(Tulane, USF, Wichita, UConn, and Tulsa)- they would probably enter the conference tournament as nearly a lock to make the tourney. They would be 19-11 with a RPI of 29.7 and a SOS of 15(OOC SOS of 17). Even 6-2 might get them in with a win at the conference tourney.

RE: Temple
This is why you don't schedule creampuffs, kids. Temple scheduled like a team that did not want to ever miss the tourney due to SOS.

I look at there future games as well and agree. I'm not sure where you are seeing their SOS at 15, unless that is projected, because right now they are at 3. Anyway, 18 regular season wins and 2 conference wins probably is enough to get them in. That said, it's a crap shoot in how they will actually finish.

(Temple's team sheet is on pg 37)

In the end will all the good wins trump the four quadrant 3 losses on their resume? This will be interesting to say the least if Temple finishes strong

It was projected.

I think if they enter conference tourney at 18-12(RPI of 38), and thus 10-8 conference record- and win even just 1 game in the conference tourney- they probably would be safe. Especially if they were the 4 seed and the game was vs a 5 seed. I think if Temple gets to 19 wins, they're safe.

I'd say Temple has the 4th best NCAA prospects in the league at this point. With that being said, they have a LOT of work to do still. They could just as easily go 3-5 in their final 8 games as they could 6-2.

for them to go 3-5 now- they'd have to lose 5/6 to Houston, UCF, Tulane, Wichita, UConn, and Tulsa(or lose to either ECU or USF). That would be EXTREMELY unlikely. If they can get their 3 home games- and then USF on the road- they would just need to go 2-2 in the other 4 games.

Getting 4 wins in those road games is going to be a hard nut for them. Beating Houston will also be one. but, if they do what you suggest they'll deserve to be in for certain. What were their WTF losses?

Memphis and Tulane at home, La Salle on the road, and neutral vs GW.
