Re: NCAA Mock Tourney Selection 2016

Do not list your team at all. Don't worry about hurting their chances, I can use the magic of stats so it doesn't affect your teams placement.

Princeton lost last night so a Yale win in Columbia tonight gets them the bid.

Several other bids decided today as well.

Re: NCAA Mock Tourney Selection 2016

Big games in the Ivy league this weekend, where Yale and Princeton are essentially tied with two to play. If they finish tied they will have a one game playoff for the automatic spot.

Re: NCAA Mock Tourney Selection 2016

In the A-Sun semis, Florida-Gulf Coast upset North Florida, and Stetson won its second straight upset game to make the finals, so if Stetson wins the final, North Florida makes the NCAA tournament, and if FGC wins, they make the tourney.

Only 4 projected starters in that lineup and it would probably still be good enough to make the playoffs.

They can put together a second lineup of Fowler, Russell, Zobrist, Heyward, Contreras, Almora, Ross, Alcantara and Victorino.

From the "no teams this year are really good" narrative, the top rated team on KP right now has a Pythagorean of .9465, the lowest Pyth by a top team since Pomeroy started doing his ratings 14 years ago. Six teams last year had a high Pythagorean.

I'm not sure I've watched a game that didn't include the Illini this year.

To be fair, the Illini weren't really in those games either.

Re: NCAA Mock Tourney Selection 2016

One other thing, don't include ineligible teams in your lists. I know SMU and Louisville specifically are ineligible, and there's a bunch of teams ineligible for NCAA APR failures. I'll see if I can find a list somewhere.
