Last week: 8

UIC went to Detroit to sweep the season series and then hung in at Oakland for an 87-75 loss. It’s looking like the Flames will be the No. 6 seed at the Horizon League Tournament.

Team of the Week


The Flames clinched a top-six finish in the Horizon League, which may not sound like much. But it is for a team that hasn’t finished that high since the 2012-13 season.

In all likelihood, UIC will be the No. 6 seed at the Horizon League Tournament, but if it can win Friday at Northern Kentucky, then the No. 5 seed could come into play.

Valparaiso (RPI: 74, KenPom: 97, No. 12 seed): Valpo is in as a No. 12 seed in our bracket, but they are in as an automatic bid, meaning that there are no at-large teams rated below them. Being the best automatic bid does not guarantee that they’ll be in as an at-large, not when their best win is a Rhode Island team that is fading and they’ve lost four games to sub-100 competition. Win that auto-bid.
