    No we can't. If we self destruct we are out. We need to finish strong.

    Re: NCAA tourney team

    No, we can't. We are no way a lock right now. If the season ended today, yes. But, there's a lot of games left to be played.

    Re: NCAA tourney team

    No we can't, still a lot of work to do. But it's looking good as of right now, and if the season ended today I think we're easily in.

    Work to be done for sure. If we lose out, we wouldn't get in!

    Re: NCAA tourney team

    It is not a "lock" but as long as we win at home against teams we already beat on the road, yes. We have TTech, OU, and TA&M at home. Win those 3 and we are 10-8, which is in unless some crazy stuff happens. Those games aren't gimmes but they are should wins and I think this game just put us in the drivers seat to get into the tourney!


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Having faced every Big 12 team except Baylor, we know what's possible to accomplish and it's looking like a tournament team.

    But a lot of close calls that could've been the difference between 7-3 and 3-7.

    Ability to win on the road never hurts the resume.

    Re: NCAA tourney team

    I would put our chances at 70% right now. If we win in Stillwater, I'd say we have a 90% chance. If we pick up another road win on Tuesday, it would take a meltdown of epic proportions to play ourselves out of the tourney.

    Re: NCAA tourney team

    We have 4 home games left, three of which are teams we have already beaten on the road. That gives us 20 wins at worst...if we take one from Baylor at home and win at OSU, that's 22 wins. We're not necessarily a 'lock' but if we do what we do, we will definitely be in.

    Taking care of business means beating opponents that aren't particularly good. We have to do more than that. The OSU game will be hard. The Mizzou and baylor games will be very hard.

    Sure, what the hell.

    No, not yet, but if they take care of business and win the games they should, they're in. They have their destiny in their own hands.
