This from ESPN:NCAA bracketology

  • Feb 27, 2013

Though ESPN's Basketball Power Index indicates the University of Louisville could be in line for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, consensus is not so confident. Jerry Palm, for instance, projects the Cardinals as a No. 4 seed in his most recent bracket, which prompted a puzzled response from U of L coach Rick Pitino on Tuesday afternoon. "Who's Jerry Palm?" Pitino asked. » Tonight's game: U of L at DePaul, 9 p.m., ESPNU

IU loses to Tubby last night,

Can't say I am sorry or surprised about that.  Minnesota has consistently had the # 1 SOS for weeks.

Tubby got a good win last night. Palm also has the Cayuts at #12 which is the 'play in" slot for the tourny.

If UK were to get in as an 11th or 12 play in they would most likely play a team that has worked hard to get in as a 7th, 8th seed like Butler, VCU, UCLA , NC St, and yes Mizzou who UK just beat in OT the other day at home. UK has a 50/50 chance of beating these teams (to state the obvious) and make it past the first round. If they get in, I wouldn't be surprised to see UK make it to the second round.

I think UofL and Florida play the best defense in the NCAA right now and that should get them both in the final four. As far as predicting who will be in the final four, I will have to wait until the brackets are set.

A couple of things.

RPI has UK at #46

Kenpom has UK at #32

First of all when looking at UK's schedule, regardless their effort to play good non-conf games, they just didn't play a lot of top 50 teams (RPI/pomeroy) on the schedule.

I only count 1 win over a top 50 team.

I think UK's chances are in the luck of the draw. It really depends on how many cinderella teams win their conference tourneys for the auto bids. Their ranking on RPI and Kenpom might lead one to believe they are in, but UK will likely struggle against Arkansas away, and Georgia away. These are must win games for UK....as they really all are other than Florida.

I hate to say it....but they are a bubble, and will likely ride the bubble to the end. IMO
