Tournament Outlook

Any of the first-round bye teams look like respectable bets to win the tournament, but Cleveland State and Wright State have gone neck and neck all season. Wright State has a much higher NET ranking than Cleveland State does (65 vs. 167, respectively), so the former would stand a much better chance of getting a higher seed in the NCAA Tournament.

The top two teams in the conference squared off in back-to-back games around the middle of the season on January 15 and 16. Of course, the two teams split the series, with Cleveland State winning the first game by two – and Wright State winning the second game by 36. One would think Cleveland State would love nothing more than to avenge that loss.

Wright State also split against number three seed Oakland and four seed Northern Kentucky. For their part, Cleveland State swept the Norse and the Golden Grizzlies, but lost two out of their last four games overall down the stretch.
