Take a Bloody victory over a clean Loss! Catch the highlights. HCMB: 6-9 down the stretch (7-10 if you include BIG12/SEC) to improve to 6-11 in conference. Last game of the season is SATURDAY against a Texas team who has won 5 in a row. Longhorns are fighting for a chance to get in the NCAA.

Win this.....beat Texas....17 wins. What kind of miracle would it take to get into the NCAA tourney? Anything shy of winning the Big12 tournament?
Magic number is 20 wins. If that happens, check this out. HCMB would be 10 of 13 wins (this is if we get 3 wins in the tournament), a win against KU or BU (or both) by winning in the First round, facing either KU/BU in the quarter final, and then wining in the semi-final. If this all happens, we’re in the tournament IMO.

as a traditional ncaa darling, we frequently get the benefit of the doubt. Sliding into the tournament with a subpar record. Favorable seeding to keep us close to home. /sarcasm
At first I was like "what the f**k is this assclown talking about........" then I lol'd.

Do
we have anywhere close to the # of quality wins that we did last year?

Texas Tech, Syracuse, Texas A&M, and maybe Ole Miss. So, to answer your question NO, unfortunately. Unless we beat Texas and BU/KU in the tournament

EDIT: Yes, we do. Last year was abysmal. Thought you meant the 2017-2018 season.

Our NET is 71, which would go up if we beat KU, but there's no way to play both KU and Baylor before the finals. It looks like win the Big12 tourney or we're out. Dont think wins over K-st, Texas, and whoever the semi finals matchup is will boost us up enough.

We’re going to be the 8th seed, MAYBE 7th if OU loses another game. This means that we’ll be facing ISU in the first round, and then KU or BU if we’re the 7th seed. Anyway, if we manage to beat one of those teams (BU or KU) it is likely we will face the other team of the two in the semifinals (if BU or KU were to win their quarter final game.

TLDR,
OSU beats ISU, OSU beats KU, OSU vs BU semis

BU had a bye, BU beats (W of Game 2) in quarter finals. OSU vs BU in semifinals.

I think that’s one scenario where we can face both KU and BU. But, if you beat both teams (most likely not gonna happen) you’re gonna win the tournament. So, yeah.

No chance to face both before finals. They are on opposite sides of bracket at #1 and #2.

Also, OU already has 8 wins.
