Does either basketball team get a Top 25 ranking?
« on: March 30, 2018, 01:38:13 PM »
Men had a season-ending RPI of 25, women 22. The women were getting a few votes in the polls. Do their Q1 wins in the tournament earn them a shot at a AP or USA Today poll ranking? Would that be the first time ever for either UB basketball program?

I think the men have a really good shot as their roster could be better next year and it's senior-filled. The women graduate a TON of talent but have good returning players... never know!

I’d bet good money in the women. I’d expect to see them somewhere between 16 and 22. Doubtful men crack top 25, but I’d expect them to get a handful of votes.

If the women don’t end the year ranked it would be robbery.

Congratulations to Coach Jack, her staff and each of the players for a truly remarkable and historic season of excellence!

Now, how does Florida State drop only to 14 when we beat them by 20 on their home court?

And a pat on the back to me, after all no one else is going to do it :), for predicting a final ranking of between 16 and 22. Now if I could only do that with the lottery I'd have Coach Jack and Oats locked up to long term contracts with onerous buy outs. I guess I'll have to leave that up to AD Alnut. Go get 'em AD MA!!!

The men finished 32nd in the final coaches poll.  They knocked Arizona from 15th to 27th.
