That would presume UNCA finishes the Big South Conference undefeated in conference play, which is highly unlikely.

They are almost a lock for the NIT at this rate for sure. MAYBE a home game but not likely.

I still see them possibly as a #16 seed playing UNC, which means they MIGHT play in Raleigh. I can see the selection committee setting that up because of all the storylines anyway (George seeking revenge for getting dunked on by Hansbrough, that is, if you count a dunk after four steps legitimate, Coach Eddie back home at State, the State fans who would love to see UNC go down, etc.).

Tell me when this thread is updated:
