    At this time of year – days before Selection Sunday – many fans flock to ESPN’s Bracketology to see what one man’s opinions are concerning who will play who and where they will play come the start of the NCAAs. Alright, maybe it’s a committee of people but nonetheless is nothing more than a WAG. Below I have listed the 16 and 15 seeds as posted on Bracketology (3/1/09).


    Two Questions:

    1. Should Lehigh prevail, do they deserve a fate better than a "Play-in" game against Jackson State?
    Why not Quinnipiac – a team we beat and a team that plays out of a conference one step below the PL?
    Why not Lipscomb – a 12 loss team with a weaker RPI and only a slightly better conference RPI?

    Travel considerations…..not much to chose from.
    Bethlehem, PA (Lehigh) to Dayton
    Nashville, TN (Lipscomb) to Dayton
    Hamden, CT (Quinnipiac) to Dayton

    2. Should Lehigh not win its tournament, do any of the other teams in the PL deserve a 16 bid of its own or is it "Play-in" time for them, as well?


    First the PL RPIs

    LU 169
    LC 216
    BU 246
    Army 248
    Navy 260
    CU 284
    HC 285
    AU 295

    The Play-In Game … March 16th @ UD Arena, Dayton (OH). Winner to get Syracuse in Round One at the Buffalo site on March 18th

    Lehigh (19-10, 10-4) – 169 – Patriot – 28
    Jackson State (16-11, 15-1) – 209 – Southwestern Athletic – 31

    The 16 Seeds – their record – their RPI – their conference – their conference RPI

    Quinnipiac (21-8, 13-3) – 143 – NE – 29 vs. Kansas
    Lipscomb (16-12, 14-6) – 196 – Atlantic Sun – 25 vs. Duke
    Stony Brook (20-8, 13-3) – 129 – America East – 24 vs. Kentucky

    The 15 Seeds – their record – their RPI – their conference – their conference RPI

    UC Santa Barbara (16-9, 11-4) – 106 – Big West – 19
    Troy (15-11, 13-5) – 120 – Sun Belt – 22
    Coastal Carolina (22-5, 15-3) -121 – Big South – 27

    Thanks for inspiring a blog posting:

    You know what sucks? Looking at the brackets, the closest venue Lehigh could play at is over five hours away. Buffalo, Providence, Pittsburgh. If it was in Philly/NYC or even DC, as it’s been in years past, I’d have probably made a go at attending if we make it. Convincing my wife to head to Pittsburgh on a Friday morning will probably not go very well, so if Lehigh makes it I’ll probably be watching it at home.
