    Wichita State MBB

    Say they finish undefeated, which they likely will. Do they deserve a one seed? If not, where would you seed them?

    Only reason I bring this up is because they are one of two undefeated teams, but it's funny there's no hype around them, and I think it's because the media see's there schedule and just laughs.

    An undefeated team with no "good" wins doesn't deserve more than a 3 seed, IMO.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    So few undefeated teams in CBB history that if they manage to go undefeated through their conference slate and tourney, they deserve a #1 seed. Had they not made it as far as they did last season, I think there would be a lot more skepticism about them, but they have shown they can play with the 'big boys' and they've earned their ranking so far by not being beaten.

    Re: Wichita State MBB

    It's pretty hard not to lose a game. I would say they are deserving of a 1 seed if they don't lose. The other thing is that they will probably be battling a 1 loss SDSU or a 3-4 loss major team. They also don't have many close games. For the most part, they are winning games easily.

    Or so I have read.

    Re: Wichita State MBB

    Looks like they are the #1 seed for Midwest. Really, little or no competition left. Then, being number one, they are more than likely to meet the Sweet Sixteen being undefeated.

    Re: Wichita State MBB

    hard to get hyped about a team that won't play a ranked team all year if I'm looking at their schedule correctly. I'm convinced they are a top 25 but I won't believe they're any better than that until they do it in the tourney. And I don't think they deserve more respect than that either, but they'll get a one seed if they're undefeated.

    Re: Wichita State MBB

    I feel like they might fall early as a 1 or 2 seed like Gonzaga did last year. Playing in a crappy conference doesn't usually help out come march madness time. Gonzaga was way more talented with Elias harris, olynyk, pangos, ect than Wichita st is this year.

    Zona, 1 seed
    Cuse, 1 seed
    KU, 1 seed
    MSU or Mich,1 seed

    The only way I see them getting it, is if KU drops 2-3 more games during the rest of the season.

    Re: Wichita State MBB

    Do they deserve a 1 seed? No. You need to actually play teams worth a damn to deserve that. Id wager most teams in the top 15 would stand a good chance at being undefeated versus their schedule. Hell, if you look at a resume of wins achieved, we deserve a 1 seed more than WSU does (not that we deserve it either). Some will say 'they can only play who they have on their schedule', well sure thats partly true, but while they cant control the schedule the Valley gives them, surely they could have taken on more challenges in their nonconference schedule.

    Will they get one if theyre undefeated? Probably.

    If they go undefeated, sure. But I think they will lose this week. 2 tough road games.

    If Gonzaga got a one seed last year, then I feel like WSU deserves one this year. But I think they drop a game this week and end up as a 3 seed.

    Re: Wichita State MBB

    Undefeated should get them a one seed, but their weak conference will be tough to overcome in the tournament.

    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Wichita State MBB

    Reminds me very much of Gonzaga last year. Goes through the regular season with relative ease and then gets bounced in the Rd of 32 when teams get better and better.

    The irony is that they beat Gonzaga last year to advance and now the same thing could potentially happen to them...

    I like WSU a lot better than last year's Gonzaga team. They both have the same issue where they go months without playing any top level competition but Gonzaga was soft. WSU is definitely not soft. Gonzaga was a great offensive team with a solid defense, WSU is a great defensive team with a solid offense. I'll take the elite defensive team over the elite offense in March every time.

    I don't care what conference you play in, not losing a single game in college basketball is an unbelievable feat.

    I'm not sure I buy into the "no hype" thing, either. They haven't been ranked lower than 16th all season. Most projections I've seen have them as #1 seed.

    I would give them a 1. They went to the FF last year and are undefeated now. They deserve a 1.
