Seedology: 19 Days Til Selection Sunday 2019

We’ve seem to come to a consensus among major brackets: UH is a three-seed.  

USA Today: 3 | ESPN: 3 | CBS: 3 | Yahoo: 3 | Fox: 3

On Bracket Matrix, 92 of the 112 brackets have UH as a three-seed. 17 more have the Coogs on the two-line and 3 have UH as a four-seed. 

The Numbers

Here’s UH’s Nitty Gritty report (data through Tuesday’s games):

Record: 26-1
AAC Record: 13-1
Road Record: 8-1
Neutral Record: 0-0
NCAA NET: 4th
Quadrant 1: 4-1
Quadrant 2: 10-0
Quadrant 3: 3-0
Quadrant 4: 9-0
SOS: 58
Non-conf SOS: 146
RPI: 4 (CBS)

The RPI no longer matters in the selection process but it’s relevant to know.

Should note that SOS has gone down 21 spots in the last two weeks according to the NCAA and non-conference SOS has slipped as well. 

Besides the NET, the NCAA Team Sheets include two other groups of rankings: résumé and quality. KPI and Strength of Record combine as the résumé and BPI, KenPom, and Sagarin are the quality.

Here’s how the Coogs stack up in the individual rankings:

KPI: 7
SOR: 10
BPI: 15
Pom: 16
Sag: 18

The Coogs have slipped from 4 to 7 in KPI and down a spot in the strength of record (SOR) – the résumé portion of the . UH has inched up in BPI, KenPom, and Sagarin. When averaged and ranked against other teams, UH is 8th in résumé and 16th in quality.
