That is to say, you're not sure who you're gonna get. Is it the Wolfpack team that handed Wisconsin, Virginia, and Duke losses? Or is it the team that was blown out by Duke in the rematch just a couple weeks later, and dropped the season series to rival North Carolina? On the flip side, opposing teams also have to guess which player will step up for NC State as they boast a balanced attack with four players in double figures, separated by less than a point per game. The Longhorns made the field over other bubble teams despite their less-than-stellar 19-12 mark and .500 record in the very top-heavy Big 12, because they just had very few bad losses, to go along with their quality wins. Blemishes against Iowa State, and then, embarrassingly, against Oklahoma State on Senior Day were not enough to keep them out of this hypothetical tournament. Texas was a bubble team that probably benefited from the tournament cancellations as it kept other potential bubble teams from building a better case to keep the Longhorns on the outside after what many thought was a devastating loss to the Cowboys. But with a chip on their shoulder, Texas has a chance to hypothetically right the ship in Dayton, and prove they belong in the field of 64.
