NET changes we are pulling for / hoping to avoid


In terms of our team sheet, we had a nice development yesterday - with ASU picking up the away win at Stanford, they moved into the top 50 NET and our neutral site win over them is now a Q1 win. That brings us to 3-3 in Q1, 3-3 in Q2, 6-1 in Q3, and 4-0 in Q4. That is solid. That said, there are multiple things (besides us winning) we need to pull for to keep it moving in the right direction:

-ASU to stay in top 50 (currently 49) to keep our neutral site win Q1
-Syracuse to stay in top 75 (currently 69) to keep our away win Q1 and home loss Q2
-South Car to stay in top 75 (currently 66) to keep our home loss Q2
-BC to rise to top 135 (currently 145) to make our away loss Q2
-Vermont to rise to top 75 (currently 80) to make our home win Q2
-VT to rise to top 75 (currently 76) to make our home win Q2 and allow for potential Q1 away win

Of course, there are various interactions in terms of ACC results, so it’s complicated, but unsurprisingly we want the teams we play twice in conference that are currently on the tier cut off cusps to do a little better (gag VT). Syracuse dropping below top 75, for example, would really not be good, even though we obviously want to finish above them for the 4 seed in the ACC tourney.

And yes, I know - just keep winning and things will be alright - but this team has shown it is very capable of not winning and these number will impact our odds of making the tournament. Plus, I just like having rooting interests in more games.
