Why 'quadrants' are important to the NCAA Tournament selection committee

Why 'quadrants' are important to the NCAA Tournament selection committeeā€¯

A little more than a month ago, OU had nothing to worry about. The Bonnies are an extremely balanced team, with a top 100 offensive (59) and defensive (94) efficiency.

Frankly, the most intriguing unanswered question about this year's tournament is expected to remain speculative even after the champ cuts down the nets on April 2.

Under Tony Bennett, Virginia has advanced past the first weekend of the NCAA tourney only twice in five appearances.

All shall be revealed on Selection Sunday when the field of 68 is set for the NCAA basketball tournament. "It's a lot different".

After all, there's really nothing more he or his team can do now. You'll be able to get through the Selection Show for free, but doing so will leave you precious few minutes of tournament action before the preview runs out. Take 48 minus 17, and that leaves 31 teams ranked ahead of OU that could grab an at-large spot. For bubble teams such as Arizona State, Louisville, Syracuse, Baylor, Marquette and St. Mary's, that's a problem.

That doesn't include Baylor and Oklahoma State, which are two of Lunardi's first four out. "Beating elite competition, regardless of where the game is played, will always be important to the committee, but these new quadrants redefine its definition of a quality win". But when whole, they also lost to Quadrant 3 foes IN and Ball State, and wins over Wichita State, Florida State and Virginia Tech might not be enough.
