The absolute dream scenario with Maryland in the next to round...

That would be sick. A chance to play both Gtown and MD. Winning both games would really be something. Committee needs to make this happen!

I want to believe, but it seems too far fetched. I could even imagine a formal protest by G'town to the committee to change their opponent or else...

We are still far from the tournament or any realistic discussion, as many teams are.
But, yes please!
I would trade one win in the tournament against them as opposed to a Sweet 16 or even Elite 8 run. Hell, would be okay if we didn't win any games the following year as long we beat them.

What is so dreamy about that bracketology? I mean who dreams of going to Pittsburgh when Portland and Seattle are on offer? And besides, that presumes That School Down the Street makes the field.

LA Fan, John Thompson Jr. probably would raise hell with the tournament committee if they had GW play Georgetown in the 1st round of the NCAA tournament. All the Georgetown folks would claim that there should be a rule that teams within a certain distance of each other shouldn't play in the 1st round!!

Years ago, the NCAA forced a Louisville-UK matchup when they weren't playing, so it's happened before.

Don't care who we play, jut want to make it to the tournament!
We've got 12 regular season games left. Does 7-5 put us in good shape? Do we need to be 8-4 at least to be comfortable heading to Brooklyn? What are everyone's thoughts? Obviously who those wins were against would be a huge factor, but 8-4 the rest of the way would put us at 23-8 and 13-5 in conference.
If the 8 wins were vs. Duquesne; vs Dayton; @Duquesne; vs Davidson; @Richmond; vs St. Bonaventure; @GMU; vs UMass
and the 4 losses were @VCU; @Rhode Island; vs VCU and @Davidson
Would that be enough?
Based on current RPI that would make us 3-5 vs RPI top-50 and 8-6 vs. RPI top-100. With our other two losses coming to teams currently at 101 and 102 in RPI.
Does that profile plus 1 win in the A-10 tournament enough?
I'm not saying that is a likely way to play out the rest of the season and I hope we do much better, but trying to figure out the minimum to be somewhat comfortable heading into Brooklyn.

And just for a note, I used ESPN.com's RPI numbers for the above.

Free housing for me at mother-in-law's plus dispensation to eat hot dogs at The Original on Forbes Ave. What's not to like about Pittsburgh? Museums, bars, bars. Easy to get to for most. I'd worry more about all this lust for Georgetown and Maryland match ups. What's everyone's fallback sustenance if we get run out of the building? Not so confident about our chances against either.

I wish I could worry about who we play in the tournament. I just want to get in.

i agree with Colonial NY that our path to the tournament is tough. We need 1 or two unexpected wins. VCU seems ripe for an upset.

7-4 ends the season at 23-8. 1-1 in the conference tournament (a very modest prediction) puts us at 24-9 with an excellent chance of getting in. Again, based uopn pure RPI probability, our best chances for 7 wins, in decending order of probability, are at Duquesne; The Bonnies; UMass (our only home loss in 2 seasons); at Mason; Dayton; Davidson (51%) and VCU (48%) Or, to put it another way, we put ourselves in a pretty good position, but we certainly haven't earned anything yet.

Oh, man. If Long Suffering Fanda is a half-man, half-panda chained to the work bench in LSF's garage and forced to watch illegal streams of GW basketball games, then I am going to be so pumped!

LSFanda, I've got Les Moonves on the line and he's ready to sign off on a pilot about an an inflatible kangaroo and a half-man, half-panda who live together, love GW basketball, and make a living busting hot dog car operators who don't serve FDA-approved beef. Let me know if you're in.

Gtown has an RPI of 13 according to Lunardi. We are down all the way to 52. Should go up win or lose against VCU as they are 4th.
1/25/2015 11:41:18 PM - BACCAS92 - 509 posts (#47)
And Lunardi has us out of the tourney. Only Dayton and VCU in. I think MD and Gtown doing well hurts us.

If you're looking at Lunardi's 1/22 bracket, he has us and Davidson as "First Four Out." Still pretty close.

Well unfortunately, part of that is because other than UVA and Wichita State, none of the teams we've played are giving us any RPI help at all. They're almost all playing terribly right now. Even Seton Hall has been looking awful lately. We're really going to have to pull it off ourselves with an upset or two and not losing any games we're expected to win.
