While there's still a lot of basketball left to be played before the final NCAA seedings - Eric Prisbell of the Washington Post (or what remains of it) has us penciled in for a Four Seed in his latest updated field.
Look at the potential pairings - To be honest, I would rather play Temple or Wisconsin (I fear Vasquez) than ANY of those projected 13s.
Temple (Atlantic 10)
Murray State (Ohio Valley) - they are a whopping 30-4, with their only losses coming to to Cal, La Tech, Western Kentucky, and Morehead State - we have much more glaring bad losses, lets just leave it at that. And they have this guy, Isaiah Canaan who can hit shots from his knees at half court
Siena (Metro Atlantic) - 26-6 and provided they beat Fairfield tomorrow , the champs of the MAC- they have no bad losses, all on the road or at neutral sites - @ Butler, @ Northern Iowa, @ Ga Tech, @ Temple, neutral-St. Johns, and @ Niagara . Furthermore, they've won their first round game in the NCAAs as an underdog each of the past two years (losing to Lville last year and Nova the year before).
Cornell (Ivy) - The fear of a probable program-crippling first round loss to Cornell has already been discussed at length on this blog - it is real and need not be discussed further.
