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.

The Houston loss marked the low-point in the season for WSU. It was the first time since 2013 that the Shockers lost back-to-back conference games and the only time they have been defeated by double-digits this season.

Even though the Cougars represent a tougher challenge, WSU will gladly embrace it if it means a chance to redeem itself for what it considered an embarrassing performance in Houston.


Beating Wichita would help our cause the most.

Does anyone know of a watch party inside the loop for today’s game?

Makes me look at this guy in a very different light.

They have Wichita State as a three point favorite.


Sidenote…TSU is in the SWAC final today. Would love to see those guys get a shot at the Big Dance also. If they win, I’ll know karma was involved somehow.

Yep. That would be great. Our South Main “rival” didn’t even make their conference tourney.
