2. Valparaiso

Horizon League tournament result: Lost to 4th-seeded Wisconsin-Green Bay in semifinals.

Rankings: 37, KPI Sports 43, RealTimeRPI 51, Sagarin 48. Composite: 44.8.

USA TODAY Sports bracketology projection: Out. Top team considered for an at-large bid that will not get one.

Outlook: Two years ago a team with 24 wins and two conference losses fell in the Horizon semis and was left out of the NCAA tournament. What will be the fate of this season’s Valparaiso team, with 26 wins, two conference losses and an ouster from the Horizon semis?

The Crusaders have wins at Pac-12 bubble team Oregon State and home against MAAC tournament champ Iona. But not winning the Horizon’s automatic bid put Valparaiso’s fate in the hands of perhaps a dozen other teams.

"They will stay on the board for some time," Castiglione said. "We know, as we move through the week, we'll have discussion about some of those teams on the under consideration board. ...

"But we know they have some quality wins, including the one at Oregon State. They're a team that we've watched and recognize how good they are."
