WAB 3/14: Final WAB standings

I’m going to do a writeup on Illinois State, Wichita State, Gonzaga, Saint Mary’s, and Vanderbilt in a separate post. There is some truth to the fact that we have less knowledge about the power levels of strong teams in weak conferences. However, less knowledge doesn’t equate to ignorance. Vanderbilt as a 9-seed with Illinois State being out isn’t defensible with the full array of information available to us.

In other news, the committee doesn’t seem to care much for conference tournaments. The Big 10 seedings are odd given the tournament results. Same issue with SMU-Cincinnati. North Carolina apparently locked up it’s #1-seed with the win over over Miami, despite the fact that Kentucky and Duke both appear to have better overall bodies of work.
