    Games of importance to ISU

    Projected seed as of today ()

    (3) ISU vs Baylor 8:00
    (2) Wisconsin vs MSU 4:00
    (2) Michigan vs OSU 1:40 MU wins
    (3) Creighton vs Providence 8:30
    (2) Duke vs NCS 3:00
    (3) Virginia vs Pitt 1:00 Vir Wins
    (2) Kansas done
    (3) Syracuse done
    (1) Florida vs Tenn 1:00 Fla wins
    (1) Arizona vs UCLA 6:00
    (1) Villanova done
    (1) Wichita State done

    We need to beat Baylor by a big margin to have a chance at either Milwaukee or St Louis. Mich or Wisc losing might open up Milwaukee. Wichita State gets St Louis and the only way Kansas does not get St Louis is if they are a 3 and we are a 2.

    Re: Games of importance to ISU

    I really don't buy Villanova as a one seed, I could live with about any mish/mash of those seeds except villanova being a #1...unless we're the #3 in their region I guess.

    It seems like when Villanova plays a good team there's a coin flip chance they get blown out.

    Re: Games of importance to ISU

    The one other wrinkle I would add is that Ann Arbor is about as close to Buffalo as it is to Milwaukee. So with Syracuse losing yesterday the committee may put Villanova and Michigan in Buffalo with ISU and Wisconsin in Milwaukee. Wichita St and Kansas in St. Louis is almost a lock.

    If Michigan wins out in the BIG tourney they will be the fourth #1 seed...

    Re: Games of importance to ISU

    My best guess at this point are:

    Orlando
    Florida
    (open)

    Raleigh
    Duke
    Virginia

    St. Louis
    Wichita St.
    Kansas

    San Antonio
    ISU or Creighton
    (open)

    San Diego
    Arizona
    (open)

    Spokane
    SDSU
    (open)

    Milwaukee
    Wisconsin
    Michigan or ISU or Creighton

    Buffalo
    Villanova
    Michigan or Syracuse

    One of the open spots will get filled by a team listed above depending on how things shake out and the others will be filled by 4 seeds.

    The real big thing for us is what the committee decides to do between Creighton, Iowa State, and Syracuse. If we get the highest priority for seeding out of the three we are likely going to Milwaukee and Michigan will be going to Buffalo.

    Re: Games of importance to ISU

    They can be a 1 seed or 2 seed in either Buffalo or Milwaukee, doesn't matter. It is actually a shorter drive from Ann Arbor to Buffalo than Milwaukee but only by a few miles.

    Re: Games of importance to ISU

    Ohio State is opening up a possible window of opportunity for us right now. If Michigan and Wisc both lose I don't see how we're not at least seeded level with them. They certainly don't deserve a 1 if we're a 3.

    They should get it, at least.

    Also, most important game to ISU we're not playing in is probably UConn-Louisville. Hoping for a UConn win in that one.

    Duke and San Diego State going down would also be nice.

    Villanova will be a two. You can take that to the bank

    Re: Games of importance to ISU

    If Duke wins today and tomorrow they'll be the 1 seed and Villanova will drop to a 2. Put it in the bank. They're Duke

    Re: Games of importance to ISU

    I think we also want Michigan State to romp Wisky, though I don't see them dropping below a two.

    Michigan State just completely curb stomped Wisc out of the gate. Wisc not looking like a 2 seed, let alone a 1.

    Re: Games of importance to ISU

    Wonder if ISU helped Iowa and BYU in our games in their precarious positions. If we win, will that help them get over the hump?
