Mailbag 3/17: Where Would UConn Have Been Placed In The NCAA Bracket?

by Categorized: Big East, Mailbag, NCAA, UConn men's basketball

Q: Dom, with 20 wins overall and 10 in the Big East Conference, “if” Uconn was playing in the NCAA Tournament this year what seed would they be?



A: Well, JT, glad you asked, because it gives me a chance to link to the story I did for the Sunday Courant. The brackets guys had UConn anywhere from a six to an 11. Now that the bracket is out, it looks like UConn would have been a No. 9 or 10 seed. Villanova was a nine, Cincinnati a 10, and UConn would probably have fallen about there they are. Though teams with higher RPI than UConn’s 45 were left out, I couldn’t imagine UConn, with all its quality wins, would have been left out, or seeded much lower.

    The members of the BE showed no class in the end. When it became apparent this would be the last real BE tournament, they should have reversed the vote and allowed UCONN to play. Remember the huskies we being punished twice by the NCAA. Once by reduced scholarships and then by the Grade point average. The BE didn’t have to suspend UCONN, and once they realized it was the final chapter uconn should have been included. Friends to the end….this is the end!!!!


    Seven BE Tournament Championships I believe.
    Those bastards wouldn’t let us play for Number 8!
