Looks like Joe Lunardi currently has us projected as a 5 seed... and guess who the projected 1 seed in our region is? Wichita State.
We got a lot of crap for losing to them last year, and also for playing close games with a few others. It seems like all those teams (Arizona, Iowa State, Wichita State) are doing extremely well this year and may have been underrated last year.
I would love this scenario to play out and give us a chance to upset them in the tourney this year to return the favor.
