Agree with the fact that Temple could still play their way back on the bubble but highly doubltfull too many loses need to get to conf champ game at the min.  to even be considered

Temple was playing their way back onto the bubble but needed to split in their games against Wichita State and Houston, but lost both. I guess it’s possible they could get an at large bid with a 20-13 record but with ACC and the Big 12 likely getting a combined 16 bids I don’t there will be room for them even if they run the table and get the conference championship game. They had a small margin for error already but the blowout home loss to Houston did them in.

100% agree with that.  Just creating conversation.  Love March Madness talk even better if USF is involved

Do I know you???  Me and a friend use to go every year, and met a group of USF alumni by chance out there years ago.  Best time ever is first weekend of the tourney.  Use to go to the Venetian

I’m typically in the Bellagio with our first year being USF’s last trip to the tournament.

If you’re looking for a dark horse team in the AAC conference tournament Tulsa May be a good option. They have won six in a row and moved to 17-10  overall and 10-5 in conference. They play at Cincinnati on Sunday.
