I think we would be in if the season ended today, unfortunately, it does not. Like you said, our wins are not too great, so we most likely need to make the finals or semis and have VCU win it all.I posted on Twitter that literally every game down the stretch is must-win if the NCAA tournament is the goal. SBUnfurled's graphics show us just on the inside of the bubble and a lot of that has to do with "bracketologists" giving us the auto-bid. I think if the season ended today we'd miss out -- at the very best case scenario we'd be sweating out a Sunday and being content with a play-in.
People keep saying we don't have any bad losses. Well we also don't have a ton of good winns and the ones we have keep getting watered down in A10 play.
As billy boy said, we gotta winn. And after we winn tomorrow, we gotta winn on Friday and then we gotta winn on Monday and then we gotta winn on Friday and then we gotta winn on Saturday.
^^^^that is the only scenario where I'll feel safe about our chances of playing in the tournament without the auto-bid. Anything less and the committee will only see that L and nothing else. Five more victories in a row. Let's do it!
He had some really nice assists on Sunday which has never been a big part of his game. Also, the defense didn't fall apart with him on the court. His shooting has been pretty bad but I like that when he has the ball the defenders know they have to keep on him because he's always looking for his shot. I think the shootings numbers are a result of inconsistent game time and would go up with more playing time.Vasquez has been putrid shooting the ball, but I am just waiting for him to go off.
Although his shooting numbers are low, he's only turned it over six times in nearly 200 minutes. I like his game even though the shots haven't been dropping this year.
