  1. Why 3 seeds between New Mexico and UNLV? They’ve split this year, both have bad losses and UNM dominates the computer rankings and polls. Is the win over UNC in what essentially was a home game really that powerful of a win to keep UNLV on such a high pedestal given their stumble to the finish line (lost 3 out of last 4)?

    1. First, it is important that UNLV’s non conference schedule was much stronger than New Mexico’s, and it seems that the committee is taking the non conference SOS into higher regard lately. UNLV still has a solid 5-4 record against the top 50 in RPI. Really, the seed difference is more because of the fact that UNLV has had a high seed for most of the year, while New Mexico has been climbing the last few weeks. New Mexico has a very good case for being higher, so if they win out this week I could see them jumping up one or two seed lines.
