So, if they go 6-3 the rest of the way (which they SHOULD at least!) and end the regular season at 20-11, do they get in the NCAA?

Yes. Every .500+ team in the B1G will get a bid… However, I’d be pleasantly shocked f they pull a 6-3 from here out.

I am proceeding with cautious optimism. Yes this team has beaten some good teams, but have looked awful against the mediocre teams in the league. Until they can string a few of these type of games together, I will not be surprised if they lose a few more games that they should win.

@Geoff

NW will not get in with a .500 record, they would just have 16 total wins if they did. They would probably need to be 12-6 just to be a bubble team

Not that anyone outside of the B1G will notice, but NW is a good team right now and NE is also a pretty good team right now. IU has two games against Iowa which is a top 15 team nationally. Win both of those and things will look very good for the NCAA’s!

PB – well, I said .500+. So that would mean 10-8, and I would be willing to make a small wager that NW would get in at that point. That would put them at 17-14 (17-15 if they lose in 1st round of B1G tourney), with wins over UW and a ranked Illinois team, and 7-3 in their last 10…
