Looks like we will draw UCF in the first round. I am curious to see if the game is considered a neutral court game or a road game for RPI purposes. That’s not the easiest opening draw, but it does have the most reward for winning. IF (big if) UH wins the tournament and beats the expected opponents, a 4 seed is probably the floor and it is possible that the team could earn a 3 seed. I think if UH just gets to the semifinals, the seed is no worse than 6.
If you could tell me we’d play in Dallas, I’d selfishly take it regardless of seed, just so I can get there. Wichita (8 Hours) is probably drivable, Nashville (12 hours), Charlotte (14 hours), San Diego (20 hours), Pittsburgh (20 hours), and Detroit (20) would be tough/expensive to get to on a few days notice.
