[b] C-USA still gets 4.
DePaul is a lock, a shoo in, a sure thing, aces, in there like swim wear… [/b]
I wouldn’t consider DePaul a lock just yet. Their RPI is down to #44 (it was #31 two weeks ago). A win over Louisville this Sunday would seal it, but a loss to UL and a loss in their first CUSA Tourney game will send them to the NIT.
Memphis definitely has to win the C-USA tourney to get in. A DePaul win over Louisville would solidify the Blue Demons. Houston’s outside chance took a hit with the loss to Marquette, while the Golden Eagles are still clinging. UAB needs to duplicate last year’s run in the tourney to make the Big Dance. Still think C-USA gets 4 and possibly 5 depending on how Houston, Marquette, Memphis, and UAB fair next week.
