Mississippi State’s NCAA Tournament Resume-2/24/20

Will this be the last week for the Bulldogs on the bubble?


Mississippi State took a loss on Saturday that the Bulldogs certainly did not want, and the 87-75 defeat at the hands of Texas A&M may have been enough to keep State out of the Big Dance. Here’s this week’s analytics.

NCAA Net Ranking: 57

ESPN Bracketology Latest Projection: First Four Out

Latest KenPom Ranking: 53


Alabama 66.6%

at Missouri 54.3%

at South Carolina 45.5%

Ole Miss 80.3%

Current ESPN.com BPI Win-Loss Prediction: 19.5-11.5, 10.5-7.5

Current ESPN.com BPI Tournament Projection Seed Line: 11 seed*

*this number projects the seed should the team make the tournament as an at-large. MSU would likely be involved in the First Four game in Dayton, OH should that projection hold.
