Unfortunately I agree, we are on the outside looking in unless we win the rest of our games aside from MSST and make a deep SEC tournament run, like to the final. I think if we win out and lose to MSST we still have a chance of being in the field.
Though that means beating a couple of tough teams in Texas A&M and a much improved SC team after a rough start. Not to mention rematches with both Missouri and Auburn, we couldn't beat MIZZOU on our home floor, I don't like our chances in their gym with home cooked officials. Auburn will be more confident after having seen us lose so many games in a row. Not going to be an easy row to hoe.
True, but they are 2-5 in conference play and you can likely tack on at least 2 more losses if they play like they have been before the LSU game. I'm not sure that good seed will happen, any seed at all would be fortunate.
The Lady Vols got a break with a very advantageous home & away draw.
We got Vandy twice - for 2 automatic wins
Auburn twice - and we already won at Auburn
and Missouri Twice - which should be easy (they are losing to LSU tonight) but MO won here by 2
We now stand at 4 and 5 in SEC play
Most likely we will lose @Miss State, @ Texas A&M and to South Carolina at home = 4 w and 8 losses
We have to beat Auburn at home, Vandy at home and
Ol Miss and Missouri on the road to end with a .500 SEC record
I don't see us making it. I hope we can win 3 of Auburn, Vandy, Ol Miss and Missouri - we should
That will put us tied for like 9th in the SEC playing one of the top 2 seeds if we can win in round one of the Tourney *not a given
Given our cupcake schedule - aside from TX, Stanford, & ND in out of conference play it would be tough to justify an NCAAT berth.
Just imagine what where we would be if we played Ms State & A&M twice instead of Vandy & Auburn
According to Creme Auburn may be playing us for that 11 seed berth since Auburn is in the first 4 out group
