After the false loss to Tennessee, John Calipari was asked after the game about the possibilities of remaining 1 seed for the NCAA Competition.
“I don't know. There is a staff group that can say. I say we are pretty good. It is not if we are one or two, it is the other team? And I have an idea who will be there. But if you tell me that the seed No. 1, we 2, we should play the lowest of the 1 seeds. That's all I'm saying. Or, if you say the second one, then we should play a third of the 1 seeds ”
These sounds are like Cal referring to the probability that the Cats will be matched in the same bracket as Duke . With the loss of Vols, this is more likely to happen.
Cal continues to recommend that the Selection Committee sign the S-Curve competition for the best teams. Instead of making it based on geography, the coach suggests Cal to have the top 2 seeds in the same bracket as the lowest 1
However, the committee does not do so.
“The reason I say is that S-Curve is all, why did you do this? Why did we not do it, if it was a seed? 4 we have, why you would not play the seeds No. Well, because whatever.
“Everyone's charts, no matter where you are, and I believe you should do this. Well, this team has 11 teams for their league in the NCAA Competition, so they have a lot of teams. You will get another advantage for them? Make the S-Curve with the first 16 teams. ”
I think many people would agree with Cal that this is the way it should be. But it is not how they will do it and we have to wait and see if we are really in the same position as Sunday on Sunday Selection.
