    Possible ISU gets a higher seed in the NCAA than Big 12 Tournament!

    Not sure how often this happens but there is a good possibility ISU ends up with a 4 seed in conference tourney and gets a 3 seed for NCAA tourney.

    Maybe somebody not as lazy as me could answer how often this happens.

    Best conference, and there are four 1, 2, 3, and 4 seeds in the big dance.

    Definitely possible and will likely happen assuming we finish at least 3-1. Heck if we win out and get to conf tourney title game I think we have an outside shot at a 2 seed, depending upon how other teams ahead of us finish.

    12 opportunities to get a top three seed in the NCAAs. Only 3 opportunities to get a top 3 in the conference. Happens all the time, I would suppose.

    This will not happen. If ISU wins 3 out of the final 4 regular season games, they will most likely be a 3 seed in the B12 tourney. If they win only 2 games, they will likely be a 4 or 5 seed in B12 and a 5 seed in NCAA.

    It's possible because B12 seeding depends on a team's actual record against the same teams in the tourney. NCAA seeding depends on metrics and perception/opinion of a group of people.

    But what if the team wins the tourney with a win over KU? Most likely a 3 but...

    Without looking, I would say this happened in the old Big East several times. Or any time that 2 teams from the same conference earned 1 seeds (Florida/UK, Duke/UNC, etc.)
