JonMoc- Not your best night. Lots of misses-on scores and spreads. Saturday will be another chance for redemption.

Anyone can have a tough night. The unpredictability of college basketball is part of what makes it such a great game. Depending on who's hot and who's not anything can happen. Overall, I think you do a terrific job covering the conference, JohnMoc. But I sure am glad you were wrong about Mercer beating us!

Not a good night, but two big upsets of ETSU and WCU....Really did not see those coming.

You said that VMI doesn't have a shot at a seed higher than 6, but is that correct?

Because if they win and both ETSU/Western lose, would the tie breaker go to ETSU/VMI due to them having a head to head record that looks like:

ETSU 3-1
VMI 2-2
WCU 1-3

Or does it jump immediately to records against those outside of the tiebreaker? as VMI would definitely be left out of that

My understanding is that they would break the 3 way tie like that, giving ETSU the 4, but then go to the 2 team tiebreaker for Western Carolina and VMI, which WCU wins because they beat Chattanooga once. That is how I understand the tiebreaker.

Oh, I forgot that Western beat Chatt, that's right, thanks

I could be misunderstanding too....It could be broken by looking at the records against each other and going straight down, in which case VMI would get the five. But I don't think it is.
