New C-USA standings projections, Feb. 28

February 28, 2013 by Doug Smock

UAB continues to mess with my projections, beating Tulane. Should have known: The Blazers are on an 6-2 run, victimizing the Herd twice in the process. Don’t worry: I’ve got the Blazers winning until they meet the Memphis buzzsaw.

The update:

1. 16-0 — Memphis (now 13-0) at UCF, at UTEP, UAB // WWW
2. 12-4 — So Miss (10-3) ECU, Marshall, UCF // WLW
3. 10-6 — UTEP (8-5) at Rice, Memphis, SMU // WLW
4. 9-7 — Tulsa (6-7) Tulane, SMU, at Rice // WWW
5. 8-8 — ECU (7-6) at So Miss, Tulane, Marshall // LLW
6. 8-8 — UAB (6-7) SMU, UCF, at Memphis // WWL
7. 7-9 — Houston (4-9) Marshall, Rice, at Tulane // WWW
8. 7-9 — Tulane (6-7) at Tulsa, at ECU, Houston // LWL
9. 6-10 — Marshall (5-8) at Houston, So Miss, at ECU // LWL
10. 4-12 — SMU (4-9) at UAB, at Tulsa, UTEP // LLL
11. 1-15 — Rice (1-11) All losses

This sticks the Herd in the 9 spot all alone. But remember, a first-round bye is possible — if MU wins out. Got to win 2 in a row, though.

Still looking at 9:30 p.m. ET starts for first round and quarterfinals. Ugh.
