WACO, Texas — Even soon after a fifth consecutive loss and a 3-9 Large 12 history, Oklahoma is even now showing up in NCAA Match projections.
There are two motives why, as ESPN bracket expert Joe Lunardi discussed Tuesday.
Very first, what OU completed in November and December (11-1) is weighed as a lot as what it does in January and February (4-9). Next, conference data really don’t necessarily mean all that a lot to the range committee.
“Nowhere on the NCAA team sheets is conference history documented,” Lunardi wrote. “Let’s repeat that for emphasis: the most essential section of any team’s results is excluded from the details most referenced by the committee.”
Lunardi, even soon after OU’s loss to Baylor on Monday, projects the Sooners as a single of four “last teams in.” He slotted an Oklahoma-Arizona Condition Very first 4 matchup in Dayton, Ohio.
Oklahoma ranks 42nd in the Net regardless of becoming 2-8 versus the Net prime-50. OU’s ideal gain, according to the Net, is versus No. 27 Wofford (21-4, 13- Southern).
The Sooners are even now becoming boosted by the 10th hardest agenda in the place.
