*= at large bid
- Simon Fraser as a 6th seed even though they went undefeated and beat BYU, the 2nd seed, Virginia Tech, the 11th seed, and Oregon the 15th seed twice, is a joke. I hope they play with a chip on their shoulder, because that’s an outrage.
- Maybe Simon Fraser was punished for playing a soft schedule outside of the three aforementioned tournament teams but Lindenwood got the 8th seed. That doesn’t add up.
- I’m not surprised Colorado State made the tournament, doesn’t mean I’m not disappointed. Chapman will make short work of them. When is the last time CSU got bounced in the first round?
- UCSB posts an 8-7 record and gets in with the 12th seed after being ranked 18th in the May 3rd poll.
What are you upset/thrilled about?
