......Tim Maymon Honorary Selection Sunday, that is.
"They (Marquette) didn't want to play the game right, so now we're going to watch them lose every game. That's just how it works."
Nevertheless, the 22-11 Marquette Warriors will dance once more this March. The Bracket Project's National Bracket currently lists Marquette as a 7 seed. In looking more in-depth at their site it appears MU is the lowest-weighted 7 seed in the analysis because the actual average seed for Marquette is an 8. Perhaps the s-curve will work in MU's favor this afternoon.
If you are not familiar with the Bracket Project, the site aggregates and averages out the predictions from dozens of bracketologists each of whom updated their field over night or early this morning. A 7 seed, while deserved based on the team's strong push in the final weeks of the season, feels high to me. I'm prepared to be disappointed when Marquette is awarded and 8 or 9 seed. Rosiak breaks things down a bit further.
With a bid today the Warriors will earn their 5th consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament.
