Hey - Just a Phoenix fan up here in Green Bay wishing the Panthers and your fan base luck tomorrow night. Also thanks to those that came up to the Resch Center for what turned out to be quite the electric evening on Saturday. If the Phoenix can't be in the NCAA Tourney I sure hope to see the Panthers take a shot at it. Have a blast and enjoy the experience.
I apologize if this has been posted, but Lunardi has Wright St as a 16 seed playing Florida. What are the chances of getting stuck in one of the play in games if Milwaukee wins tomorrow?
I think that while there would be a chance, it would be slim. Lunardi's bottom 4 16 seeds (ESPN.com RPI) are as follows:
Coastal Carolina (203) - IN Stony Brook (171) Alabama State (254) Wofford (164)
The last 3 have not yet qualified, but are instead the highest remaining seed (or #1 seed) of their respective conference tourneys. If there was an upset, a team with a lower RPI would likely qualify.
Milwaukee has an RPI of 141. WHEN we beat Wright State our RPI would likely increase to around 130-135 (not sure if the game would be considered a true road game because it is part of the conference tournament). Unless there were a bunch of upsets, we would almost certainly be a 16 seed, but not a part of the play-in.

UWM just emailed all students about the game and they are having viewing parties at the Gasthaus and Sanburg Flicks. I will be taking the fan bus and hoping to reverse my luck of this season at games....I wanna dance in my senior year!
