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.
