Let me put it this fashion, the one groups on the “into consideration” board who received’t be in motion right now are:
- New Mexico (which has actually fallen down the pecking order, their loss at Colorado State on Friday night time moved their mark to 3-8 since knocking off Boise State in additional time on January twentieth)
- NC State (who’s the ACC workforce on a bye right now)
- All of Houston, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Memphis, Northwestern, Penn State, Purdue, Rutgers, and Wisconsin, who full their common seasons tomorrow.
- The Badgers are out of the sphere for the second with Utah State changing them. The Aggies’ NET now stands at 21. If that statistic isn’t utterly meaningless, they received’t be overlooked with that top of a rating.
There’s additionally not less than one automated bid up for grabs tonight when Tennessee Tech (final NCAA look: 1963) meets Southeast Missouri State (final bid: 2000) within the OVC last in Evansville (8 p.m., ESPN2). Nonetheless, two could find yourself being awarded tonight, as the primary NEC semifinal sees top-seeded Merrimack, ineligible for each the NCAA and NIT in its last reclassification yr hosts Sacred Coronary heart (6 p.m., SNY/ESPN3/NEC Front Row). If the Warriors defeat the Pioneers, the winner of the second semifinal—St. Francis (Pa.) at Fairleigh Dickinson (8 p.m., SNY/ESPN3/NEC Front Row)—earns the bid no matter the results of Tuesday night time’s title sport. The Purple Flash final certified in 1991, whereas the Knights represented the NEC in 2019. Sacred Coronary heart, in the meantime, has by no means certified for the Division I match.
Word that each the NEC and OVC champs are extraordinarily more likely to find yourself within the First 4 in Dayton.
