how can you project Memphis to win CUSA. They are seeded #4, and either have to play #2 Tulsa or #3 UTEP, in El Paso in the title game, and the last time they played Feb. 26, the Miners won 74-47. Not saying you won't be right, just can't figure it out.

The Hoyas will drop no lower than a 5 seed. The committee won't penalize the team that many seeds for losing the last 4. They don't deserve to be a 7 when they're #13 in the RPI.
