    What do we need?

    What do you'all think the Sisters need to do to get into the NCAA tournement? I'm sure the committee wants to find a way to let them in, since they are hosts, and would bring thousands to Des Moines. I think they need to finish at .500 in the conference, and to do that they need to beat KU here, Missouri there, and win one more. Baylor here or Nebbie there seems most likely, but very difficult.

    Re: What do we need?

    I think .500 in the conference would be enough. Going 7-9 might be enough, because of the strength of the Big 12, but they would be one of the last teams in or out. That win over Iowa is looking better and better!

    Re: What do we need?

    You know, a week ago, I posted a "hope we make the NCAA tournament" post that I thought was "whistling in the dark." Now, it actually looks like we have a prayer of making it. Bill Fennelly = Coach of the Year.

    Go Cyclones!

    Girls still have an RPI of 37 - I think as long as they have a top 45 RPI they are in.

    Do not forget the Big 12 torney, if they finish 7-9 that would prob get them about a #7-#10 match up and if they win that a match up with #2 in KC. I do not know what UI rpi is but the Big 10 is weak, only 1 team rated and they are only rated #22. Big 12 has 5 rated teams.

    Finish .500 in conf. and win 1st round in B12 to lock it.

    REALLY wish the girls could have gotten that OU or KSU game.

    By the way...BF for coach of the year if he gets to the NCAA with all the hurdles this team has encountered.

    Re: What do we need?

    If we can beat A&M that would be huge because beating baylor (even at home) is going to be tough, i think they can beat mizzou at mizzou, and Kansas at home for a little bit of payback, and at Nebraska is not out of the ? but it seems we always struggle so thats the big ? of tthe rest of the schedule..

    so right now we are 16-8 and 5-6..

    so im hoping for bout the same as everyone..
    19-10 8-8

    plus a win or 2 at hilton south


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: What do we need?

    I'm just wondering...would they put us in Des Moines even though we won't have a high seed. Or would they consider that an unfair advantage. I'm not completely sure how this works as far as seeding and placement goes once you get below the top few seeds.

    Funny thing is that when we played them, they looked horrible and we ran over them. I agree, now that win really helps our cause and the OSU on the road win could be what punches our ticket. We play two ranked teams in our next 5 games. I think if we win 3 of the 5, go 8-8 and win one in the big 12 tourney, we're look at a 9, 10, 11 seed. Way to go Bill and his girls with all of their crap with injuries they had to go through.

    I beleive that we would play in DSM no matter our seed we just have to make it.

    Re: What do we need?

    The men are now suppose to lean on the results of the last 12 games.

    Correct. Teams that are hosting the first and second rounds are automatically placed in that location if they are selected for the tournament.

    I just hope those four 3 point conference losses don't come back to haunt us.

    Re: What do we need?

    About four more wins, and a healthy reminder to the selection committee that they are guaranteeing sellouts at Wells Fargo for the first round (probably even the second).
