Over at the Basketball Prospectus John Gasaway points out the Miami may become the RPI test case on Selection Sunday. He has a persuasive argument that Miami may not deserve an NCAA bid unless they beat Clemson tonight despite a lofty RPI ranking. Does a team that lost to Boston College, NC State and Florida State really deserve an NCAA bid over a team like George Mason?
In the one teams's 7-6 is not another team's 7-6 category here is a list of the overall records of ACC opponents for every team in the league.
|Team(W-L)||Opponent Win %||Opponents Record|
Please, please stop with the "only two teams that went 9-7 in the ACC were not selected" or even "no 10-6 ACC team has ever been denied a NCAA invite" because those things don't mean anything anymore. With the imbalanced schedule a winning record in the ACC doesn't guarantee anything these days. More and more 9-7 and, yes, even the occasional 10-6 team will be heading for the NIT from the ACC in the coming years.
