7 Michigan Division 1 basketball programs
How would you rank the 7 in state programs this season?
It looks like for the first time in I don't know how long that we aren't going to see any team from this state in the NCAA tournament.

1. Michigan State (17-8, 4-6)
2. Michigan (17-8, 5-5)
3. Oakland (15-11, 8-2)
4. Western Michigan (6-5, 11-13)
5. Detroit Mercy (5-8, 9-16)
6. Central Michigan (4-7, 9-14)
7. Eastern Michigan (4-7, 9-15)

State gets the nod at 1 for SOS and what will probably happen Tuesday night

Oakland at 3 because of record in a decent mid con

WMU at 4 because of winning MAC record and tough OOC

Detroit at 5 because of decent schedule and tough confrence w/ Wright St. and Butler being so good

EMU is probably better than CMU if Carlos Medlock is healthy but they did lose to them at home so that puts them last in the state.

Michigan State and Oakland have an outside chance at the NCAA tournament. I wouldn't bet on either however.

I'd have to agree with those rankings. Unfortunately OU is better than WMU at this point (but maybe WMU has turned the corner?).

I don't know what the rest of the schedules look like for u.m. and MSU, but if they're sub-.500 in the b11, then they should be out.

I think Oakland has the best shot at the AAs this season. They're #2 in their conference and control their own destiny for the #1 seed in the tournament. It will come down to Oral Roberts vs Oakland in the Mid-Con tourney, I believe.

I heard today that if either u.m. or MSU sweeps the other, then the swept team will be NIT-bound.

I wouldn't mind it if they split and both end up in the NIT. It would be interesting if say WMU and Oakland each ran through their confrence tournys and earned automatic NCAA bids, and MSU and UofM continue their tank jobs and end up in the NIT, to see how the Detroit media would cover the events.
