I know many of you probably already know and follow this site but for those of you who don't it is a well organized site for Terps Baskeball with tons of stats from this and past years. Also, every 3-5 days it updates its predictions for where teams end up in the post season which is pretty neat. After beating Clemson and losing to Puke we moved from a projected NIT 6 seed to a NIT 5 seed.
It will be interesting to see where they project us heading into the ACC tourney if we can somehow finish 9-7. Nobody has brought this up but if Maryland sweeps Virginia and they lose to UNC/FSU the final ACC standings would look like this..
Fl. St. 13-3
NC. St 10-6 (21-10)
UMD 9-7 (19-11)
Miami 9-7 (17-11)
UVA 8-8 (21-9)
Given how close that race is I think there is a GREAT chance the ACC gets 6 if not 7 teams in depending on how the tourney shakes out. If we sweep UVA in the reg season and beat them in the tourney it would be tough to put them in over us. Our lack of quality wins surely is holding us back from putting us on the bubble but even UVA, Miami, NC.St, ect. have bad losses which is something we don't have. I think 9-7 and two ACC T wins will have us biting our nails on selection Sunday. Three ACC T wins and I'd put us on the 50%+ chance side of the bubble sitting at 22-12 with no bad losses. I'd love to get one of those 13 seed play in games.
