Everything is gravy now. RPI/KenPom ratings likely won’t go down with a loss to Wichita or Cinci. UH is now #18 in Ken Pom, #19 in RPI, and #17 in BPI.
Win over Wichita moves the RPI to #16. Wins over both Cinci and Wichita move RPI to #11.
Bracketology this morning has UH as a #6 in the West playing a Dallas pod vs Florida State with Auburn and New Mexico in the other game. (Would take this draw in heartbeat).
I think if UH beats Wichita, they are no worse than a 5 seed and might move up to the 4 line.
Also of note and helping Coogs seeding: Providence upset Xavier and is in the Big East final while Arkansas upset Florida and is in the SEC semis.
