7-3 is the magic number… 6-4 is very doable and we’d have our NCAA destiny in our own hands… 5-5 is bottom tier of hope for a bid, it’d take 2 wins in the SECT… anything less than that means NIT and though not a bad season for such a young group, still disappointing with it all within reach… I’ll go with 6-4

@ Missouri (w)
Miss ST (w)
@ Auburn (w)
Texas A&M (w)
@ Kentucky ( loss)
Ole Miss (w) Rebels have began to lay down on their new coach
@ Vandy (w)
The loss to Texas, Georgia Tech, WKY, Florida and Texas Tech could have all been wins. That’s the difference between a potential 4 to 6 seed and ending up 8-9 where if they make the dance they will end up!
Vandy - W
@ USC - Boy, critical game. No outcome will surprise me. Toss up.
@ Missouri - Another critical game, I’m going with W, we are better than them I think but…
MSU - W
@ Auburn - L
TAM - W
@ UK - L
OM - W
@ Vandy W
I don’t see us beating Auburn or UK (never say never!), I don’t see us losing to TAM at home, I think all the rest could go either way. If my predictions above are right and even if we lose at USC, that is 7-3. Don’t know if we can pull that off, but it is doable! So I guess I am saying somewhere between 8-2 and 2-8
I’m pretty sure we win both Vandy games. I agree with you though, I think there’ll be a letdown, but I don’t think it will be bad enough to lose to Vandy, not at BWA. Now if we were going to Vandy tomorrow night instead, I’d be a little more nervous. By the way aTm and Missery are two more teams I don’t think we will lose, we are a lot better.

I think we’ll win these next 2, then lose 3 in a row and everyone will panic again, forgetting that we are still a young team that will have ups and downs. We’ll bounce back against Texas A&M and win 4 of our last 5 finishing conference play 10-8, 19-12 overall. Go 1-1 in NCAA tournament, quality wins over Indiana, @LSU, Ole Miss, and Alabama, good enough for a 9-11 seed in the NCAA tournament.
I picked us to play .500 ball in conference and I think we go 5 - 5 in the next ten. We have the talent to win 7/8 possibly as much as we have improved but we continue to foul to often and free throws can be trouble at times. We need more than 5 wins to get to dance and we cannot stand to lose a game we are picked to win, As hard as we played and got away with the win against LSU that’s not going to be a consistent outcome I’m afraid. We’ve come along way and made great strides in the last couple games and there’s a lot of ball to be played and with our youth you never know what will happen down the stretch. WPS
with 9 to go… imo, winning 2 of the next 3 is a must.if we are getting to 20… losing 2 or 3, which is possible , would be a dagger… KES stepping up would help tremendously… Hopefully, USC shoots like they did against Kentucky…
I actually think we need to hold home court (4 games) and steal at least 2 more on the road (5 games). In my opinion @ Vandy, @ USCe, and @ Missouri are the best chances for a road win, but all 3 of those teams play well on the road. A victory @ AUB or @ KY would be a HUGE resume builder win. Plus, I don’t think we can go 0-1 in the SECT, 1-1, at least, is a must
