    1 game out of 5th!!

    With 2 out of our next 3 games that look very winable, I can see us getting to 7-9 and then finishing in 7th place. A very good first year for Greg McDermott.

    Re: 1 game out of 5th!!

    80% chance we finish 5-11
    15% chance we finish 6-10
    4.9% chance we finish 7-9
    .1% chance we finish 8-8

    NIT is probably not going to happen unless we win 2 of next 3 OR win 1 of next 3 and then 2 in the tourney.

    I would say we'll beat CU and lose to Tech and KU.....which puts us right back at last year's 6-10 mark. Of course, with the standings the way they are, we have a lot to gain still!

    Re: 1 game out of 5th!!

    It will be interesting to see which Texas Tech team shows up in Hilton. They have been very inconsistent this year.

    We will have to play better than we did last night to win any of the last three.

    Really makes you wonder what could have happened if we would have pulled out that KU game. 6-7 doesn't sound too bad now.

    HUH? We just beat CU. I assume a typo and you meant NU. If so, I wouldn't assume be beat ANYBODY on the road. NU could easily beat us by 20 in Lincoln. Better chance we lose this game than win it IMO because it's at Lincoln.

    I think this is pretty accurate. I think it is most likely we dont win the rest of the way out. We are not going to be favored to win the rest of the season, only hope we can pull a upset or 2.

    2 of the next 3 are winable, depending on what team decides to show up. But I am not getting my hopes up, we just nearly lost to a notsogood colorado team on our home floor and haven't played 2 great halves of bball since the kansas game IMO. Maybe we are due for a upset.

    Re: 1 game out of 5th!!

    Would be nice to win 2 of our last 3 and finish 7-9. This is where most of us thought we'd finish coming into the Big 12 season.

    Uh...Really? Was this a poll? I have thought 6 wins would be a good season all along. I'd be surprised if "most" thought we would win 7.

    Re: 1 game out of 5th!!

    There is no way most of us thought 7 wins. I said anywhere from 7-9 at the beginning of the season and got ripped about how I was drinking koolaid and people were asking where the wins would come from. I'm not patting myself on the back because I honestly think we will hit 6 now and it isn't like it was a wild guess.
