This would've been the 10th trip in a row to the Big Dance for the Bearcats. And for the second time in three seasons, Cincinnati claimed at least a share of the AAC title. However, there is a reason this co-champion ended up on the 7 line. While they flashed potential with wins over ranked Tennessee and Houston squads, they also took on a number of head-scratching losses, such as a 7-pt loss to Bowling Green, or a 67-66 loss to the Red Raiders........of Colgate. Florida's tournament case would've been an interesting one. By all accounts, they seemed to be safely in the field of 68, compared to Mississippi State, a team that beat Florida in their only matchup and finished with a better overall record, but was merely a "Next 4 Out". The NET, and the results of the SEC tournament, would've been the biggest difference. Florida finished the season 29th in the NET rankings, just behind LSU and just ahead of Rutgers, who were also both safe at-large picks to make the tournament. The Bulldogs, meanwhile, were back at 50 in the NET, which was less than ideal. With all that said, this is a Florida team that survived a challenging schedule and more than likely would've landed in the field of 68, presenting a tough matchup for any potential #1 or #2 seed they would meet in the 2nd Round if they got that far.
