    ISU and where they are seeded

    Im surprised that when Creme did his bracket this morning he still has ISU as a 4 seed in UCONN's region and making ISU play out in Seattle. Thought they may get to be closer to home

    Re: ISU and where they are seeded

    ISU has been fairly close to Ames the last two season, likely won't be given the benefit this year. It's a bad place for fans, but if it actually happens like he predicts, we will have a very good shot at making the sweet 16.

    Re: ISU and where they are seeded

    I want to be as far away from UCONN as possible.

    Re: ISU and where they are seeded

    I think they can get to Trenton semi easily with that draw. The other interesting this will be is he has Kansas and Texas Tech on his second 4 out. Be interesting to see if the comittee tries to find away to get Tech into the tourney since they are hosting. They have done it before.

    Neither Creme, or anyone else not on the selection committee, has any idea where ISU will be sent.

    Re: ISU and where they are seeded

    I think ISU is a natural 4 seed. We may be 3 or 5 if the committee needs to move us up or down to make things work.

    Re: ISU and where they are seeded

    Yeah I say a sixty percent chance we are a 4 with the remaining split evenly between being a 3 and 5. As far as where we go its anyones guess.

    Re: ISU and where they are seeded

    I'm guessing a 4 seed. A 3 seed seems a little too high and a 5 seems low given our ranking and decent performance in the conference tournament.

    The committee has the leeway to move us up or down a seed to make everything work out. That's the only reason we might get a 3 or 5. We probably got a higher seed last season than we deserved because it made things work out better.

    Re: ISU and where they are seeded

    Do they play the Sweet 16 games in the same place as the first 2 rounds?

    I would assume most people would be planning for that trip.

    Drake vs. Creighton is the semifinal game tonight. Drake would still have to win the championship tomorrow to get in.

    Nope, the sweet 16/elite 8 regions are in Raleigh, Berkeley, Trenton and Oklahoma City.

    Re: ISU and where they are seeded

    For the women's tourney, they like teams to play where crowds can be drawn. I would guess Iowa State to Minneapolis as the host team if the Gophers don't get in. If they do, I still see Iowa State there, along with Minnesota and South Dakota State. I'm hoping anyway.

    Re: ISU and where they are seeded

    Minnesota isn't hosting. Nearest host schools are Iowa, Notre Dame, and Michigan State. We won't be in Iowa's subregional.
