Seed / Region: No. 5 seed in East Region
First Round Opponent: No. 12 seed VCU
Thoughts on Draw: Getting a No. 5 seed would be great for the Spartans and their chances of reaching the second weekend of the NCAA Tournament. The 5-12 seed game historically has plenty of upsets but in this scenario I actually like the Spartans odds of advancing to the second round. From there, it would be a matchup against the winner of No. 4 seed Virginia and No. 13 seed Liberty. Again, both of those teams appear to be beatable opponents for the Spartans. Nothing is guaranteed in March, but this would be a great draw for the Spartans should it come into fruition in a few months.
