Gonzaga has done very well and was close to winning it all last year. But that doesn't mean that the WCC is considered one of the top conferences in the country. To me, as a league you want as many teams in the tournament as possible. To me, that's how you gain prestige as a conference.

RE: AAC Tourney: Do we want...
4 teams gives us a better chance at more deep runs than a slightly better seed, especially with our current teams getting bids. Cincy is bad on offense. Wichita State is horrendous on defense. If we get good matchups both teams have Final Four potential. If we get bad matchups both teams could get bounced in the 2nd round. There’s gonna be a 12 seed that it would be better for us to play than a 13 or 14.

And you want to know how to lose said prestige just as quickly? Send a bunch of teams to the Dance and do literally nothing with most of the bids. #Vatican #ChurchLeague #Pee #Dregs4Life

No ****. Baby steps.

There isn't a coach or player in the entire city of Cincinnati that understands the pressure of March Madness. A realistic goal would be to win 2 games.

Newsflash- there isn't a player on the Wichita State team that's been any further than Cincinnati in the tournament.

When Wichita made the final four there wasn't a player or coach on the team that had been further than these UC players have been.

UC makes the tournament every year. They get the pressure. UC hasn't made the sweet 16 in several years, but quite honestly none of those UC teams were really top 16 caliber teams. This is Mick Cronin's first top 20 kenpom team (a ton have hovered between 20-40). This team is #4 kenpom. It's just a different level of team that will be held to a different standard. The players know what march is about, now they have a team that should be able to make a run. Time to take care of business.

False.

Edit: reading it again maybe you just mean Cincy in general. In which case, my bad.

Not that it matters, but WSU made the Sweet 16 in 2015 .. Several of the seniors were on that team. (Brown, Morris, Nurger, Kelly)

I have an eerie feeling that UCONN is going to do what UCONN does and wreck havoc in the tournament. I caught a glimpse of it during the Houston game before their game plan was just drive to the center and rely on Houston fouling them (horrible plan). I don't hate UCONN but I want them to lose miserably so they can get a coach they deserve. There is a good chance they will win.
