I honestly tuned out in this debacle of a men’s basketball season, so now that it is Selection Sunday, who’s in, who’s on the bubble? How about NIT? (No buy in tournaments, please.) I know Philadelphia sportswriters are split whether Temple is in or out after it’s AAC tourney loss to WSU.

Houston, Cinci, and UCF should be in. Temple is on the bubble but leaning in. To get 4 teams in would be the best the AAC has ever done. But we haven't had a team make the sweet 16 since Uconn won it all in 2014 so we need some teams to step up and show well.

Watching the AAC championship game, Cincinnati's Jarron Cumberland is on fire. After Houston blew UC out last week for the regular season title, UC seems to be taking out their frustration with a vengeance. Cumberland has somewhere in the mid 30s and there's still almost 4 minutes left.

UCF in as a 9 against VCU, for a shot at Duke in round two (three).

Belmont/Temple as a play-in game. 11 seed facing Maryland if they win.

My best buddy is a Yale B school grad. That’s why I’m pulling for Yale. :wink:

Do they get the win if the cheaters succeed, only to have the win vacated? similarly, does the SEC lose any tournament money when all of their victories, including any luck they might have in March, are vacated?

AAC gets 4 teams in, same as the Big East, and at the same time gets kicked out of "Power 6" status by the CBS crew (who lists the 5 P5 leagues and the Big East as their Power 6).

Plus UM and WSU in NIT. So >50% of MBB teams made one of two top tourneys. New Tulane coach will have work to do.

ESPN has been listing the AAC as a P7 in basketball all year. CBS tends to be a follower these days, so maybe next year that'll change.

As I said in an earlier post, it would be great to see one or more teams playing on the second weekend this year. We should be producing Sweet 16 level teams regularly. Houston is the most complete and capable squad this year, although Cincy is a threat when Cumberland is rolling. Not as confident in UCF or Temple, but maybe they can pull an upset or two.

Then LSU/Yale winner. It would be nice to have an AAC team take out our buds up river but Temple has some work to do first. Plus no doubt Yale thinks circumstances give them a chance for an upset.

Well Yale and Houston are probably both screwed because Seth Davis took Yale to beat LSU and Clark Kellogg took Houston in the Final Four. Getting picked by those guys is like the kiss of death... :razz:

Temple goes out to Belmont last night. I didn't really expect them to make a run, but for league purposes it would've been nice for them to get a win. It's up to Houston/Cinci/UCF now.
