    Put these teams in order

    Duke, Kansas, Michigan, Villanova, & Wisconsin

    In terms of tournament resume what order would you put these teams in. If we have any shot of getting a 2 seed we have to be ahead of one of them (and stay ahead of Virginia).

    Gonna be tough because I think we're in a lose/lose because Duke is (according the experts) a 2 seed and Virginia is a 3 seed. If Duke wins, they likely remain a 2, maybe bump up to a 1(maybe dropping Michigan down to the 2 line?). If Virginia wins Duke probably gets dropped to the 3 line and Virginia would take the last 2.

    I hope the selection committee goes our way, but it's hard for me to see any scenario today playing out in our favor.

    Personally I think we should be ahead of Villanova, but doubt we will be.

    Michigan, Kansas, Wisconsin, Villanova, Duke. Duke doesn't deserve to be a 2 seed, closer to a 4 than a 2. NCAA College Basketball RPI Team Comparison - CBSSports.com

    Re: Put these teams in order

    RPI is:
    Kansas
    Villanova
    Duke
    Wisconsin
    Michigan

    But I agree, I think Villanova is the 5th team in that group. Head to head we have a better SOS, a better record against the top 25, and no losses against teams over 100 while they have one. Their real strength is they have a lot of wins against teams 40-70 with no losses.

    Re: Put these teams in order

    Duke is a team that has been great at home but done next to nothing on the road. They are probably my 4th team in the group ahead of Villanova. I think Kansas, Wisconsin, and Michigan can be put in any order.

    When you put our resume next to Kansas, Wisconsin, and Michigan it is actually pretty similar. Particularly if they beat Duke today, you can also put Virginia in that group. I'm not entirely sure how I would order Kansas, Iowa St., Michigan, Virginia (if they win today), & Wisconsin.

    Wisconsin beat Florida, won at Virginia, and won at Michigan. I have a hard time putting them behind Duke and Villanova.

    Top 3 are pretty interchangeable. I think Wisconsin is getting underrated a little bit. Their non-conference slate (undefeated with wins @Virginia and Green Bay, Neutral over St. Louis, St. John's, and West Virginia, and Home over Florida) is pretty impressive.

    Kansas - Right there with the other three if I though Embiid was coming back.

    Duke - Should be a clear 3 seed.

    Duke lost today.

    Virginia reminds me of ISU. Plug, plug, harass, harass, persevere, win in the end. They had lost by 35 and to VCU and then regrouped for the season.

    Re: Put these teams in order

    A #2 is probably unlikely given the résumés of the teams mentioned, so I'm hoping for a #3 seed. I'll be a little ticked if we're given a #4 seed considering all the teams ranked in the teens that lost in their conference tournaments.

    I find it interesting how much hype ESPN spent on Wiggins and Jabari parker and bot their teams lost in conference tournaments. Heck, Duke never won their conference.

    On the ESPN replay: When ISU was ahead last night near the end, Wiggins made a bucket and ESPN cued Wiggins plays. Obviously they had been holding the clip for awhile as he shot 2 for 9 at the start.
