March 6, 2020 Leave a comment

Dave2015Championship Week begins on Saturday, meaning we’ve reached the final stages of our journey to Selection Sunday.  The final turns, however, are filled with potential roadblocks and potholes.


Tulsa is Exhibit A.  The Golden Hurricane now lead the American Conference, thrusting them into the bracket as the AAC’s automatic qualifier.  It represents the type of scenario we could see in the coming days as conference tournaments unfold.

There are about 12 teams with varying degrees of work to do to retain current positions within the Field of 68.  Late surges by teams like UCLA and Texas have squeezed the at-large pool; and it could get tighter if someone upsets San Diego State in the Mountain West.  Stay tuned.
