If we get the 6 seed and we win against the 11/14 seed winner, we play the 3 seed. I have game theoried that based on projected wins, Dayton will win the conference and VCU, Davidson, and URI will be tied...who is 2, 3, and 4 in that scenario?

1st 4 teams get a buy and the last 4 teams play each other first. If GW is the 6th seed than they get Duquesne vs SLU. Love a payback win over the Dukes. If they win GW would play the 3 seed. Since Davidson is laying the smack down vs VCU so far tonight, lets say its GW v URI in the 2nd game. Winable game for GW.

^^^ Except VCU will be 11-6, and with Richmond sweeping VCU this year, VCU will get the 5th seed.

My assumption was VCU beats Davidson--wrong on that thus far.

Davidson is indeed taking it to VCU tonight. For those who don't think McKillop should win coach of the year award, look at the these two teams, looks like a 3 vs 14 from 1997 athletically, yet Davidson is up 20.

Make that a near 30 point win for Davidson over VCU. No knock on Archie, he's done a great job too, but this award should go to McKillop.

If we can beat UMASS, this could shape up very nicely for us.
We would be the 6 seed and most likely play the winner of Duquesne-SLU. Obviously we stunk one game at Duq, but we also crushed them at home. I'd be fine with that matchup. And SLU palyed by far their best game of the year vs. us and they seem to have collapsed at the end of the year.
If we could beat UMASS, then that first game, we'd get the 3 seed. Looks like that will be Rhode Island (If URI beats St. Joe's, they are the 3). If URI loses, then most likely Richmond gets the 3 seed (VCU has a very slim chance to get it). I don't know about any of you, but URI and Richmond scare me the least of the top 5 teams.
Let's say we win that, we would most likely be playing the 2 seed: Dayton. Again, would rather play them than Davidson or VCU.
Anyway, this is all a huge longshot. That's a lot of wins in a row we would need vs. good teams, but if we can beat UMASS Saturday, we might get what I consider the best possible draw (with VCU and Davidson both on the other side).

Good projections, that's indeed the makings of a pretty favorable path.
