Tournament Notes

Link to full Conference USA tournament bracket.

Note that this event takes place entirely in Frisco, Texas, about a 30-minute drive from North Texas’ campus. That might give the Mean Green a bit of a home-court boost, not that they need much of one considering they’re among the top-two favorites.

The market rates North Texas just slightly behind UAB. They did manage to finish ahead of UAB in the conference standings, and due to both teams being in the same division, they find themselves on opposite ends of the bracket to potentially meet in the finals. The two split their season series, each winning on the road.

KenPom’s numbers have those two teams in a tier of their own, though he rates North Texas ahead of UAB. Both teams make his top 52, then a wide gap to 100th-place Middle Tennessee.

In addition to North Texas and UAB, Middle Tennessee and Western Kentucky earned byes into the quarterfinals. All other teams have to play at least one extra game in order to win the tournament. Those teams will also have to get through a grueling four-day or even five-day gauntlet.

Keep an eye on depth and factor in any injuries accrued in early rounds since there won’t be any days off to recover.
