We are looking at the very real possibility of a tournament with no Duke, no Michigan St, no UNC, and no Kentucky. Amazing!
Historically speaking , whether it NET era or RPI era, the odds of making the tourney based on ranking:
TOP 30 - Lock
31 - 45 - 70% chance
46 -70 - True bubble teams
> 70 - no chance

Just watch a 100+ Duke will make it.

Duke will come in with a 6 seed. 🤣

I think duke and UNC make it in. They’re putting stuff together now and in reality too big of a name and fanbase to be left out if they come down to the bubble. Kentucky is the most precarious. I don’t think MSU has a chance at sniffing the tourney this year

This really sucks but there is bright news. Illinois is up to #4 in the NET thanks to Houston's loss. Could a 1 seed be possible?
Depends on how we end the season, of course. But from my understanding, NET rankings are used less to seed teams and more to measure who you’ve beat & lost to.

So it’s possible to end the season with a top 4 net ranking & not get a 1 seed.

ESPN has a braketology in which they project 68, 48 and 16 team fields, due to the uncertainty of how the tourney will play out. Lunardi projects us as a 3 seed in each of those brackets. Now sure how likely, if at all, it is that the tourney gets condensed like that but I think it underlines how important it is to get a higher seed this year. It would certainly be a bummer to be in the 5 or 6 seed range only to see the NCAA decide to go with a smaller 16 team tournament
