Drake & MSU will take the top 2 slots. Drake controls their future.
UNI is 3rd.
Redbirds and Braves are 4 & 5, only fighting for who gets to wear the home uniforms.
SIU likely the 6 (may have it locked, I didn't look at tie breakers)
Loyola the likely 7 (again may have it locked)
Trees 8
Valpo & Aces 9/10

No matter how any of the close ones go, I like the looks of things for Drake.

A few fingernails chewed this afternoon but D moves on the final on Sunday with a tough 65-54 win in the semifinal. A brutal 18-50 from the field, but 19-24 from the stripe was the difference.

Drake is playing like they know they're in and MSU is playing like everything is on the line. Down 42-35 at the half

Bad thing is that we have hits 3s at incredible percentage and yet they are ahead by 6. They are a very good team

Playing scared and not very smart. Looks like some of the shooters are wide open and passing up the shot....Sturtzitis.
Need better passing.

All season Drake has turned the ball over at an alarming rate.  16-5 midway through the the third. 21 of 34 shots from three, never going inside, SWMS is moving and attacking a very "kind" Drake squad.  Get the ball inside and start playing defense.  SOFT!!!

Pretty embarrassing display. Probably has cost an entire seed line. Bring on selection Monday.

At this stage of the season they are just a better basketball team than us. They are much more athletic and well rounded than we are.

Down 21 at the end of 3.  This one is over.  

I imagine this will effect their seeding greatly.

They continue to pass around the perimeter, with zero movement.  No drive and extra pass to the other side, or to a teammate driving to the basket.

20 turnovers through 3.  Turnovers and giving up offensive rebounds has been a problem all season.

This team is very talented, but perhaps a little soft.

They've chipped away a bit with better defense but are going to need to start scoring faster.

Not sure where the energy and aggressive play was the first three quarters.  This team has the talent.  Got to play 40 minutes with smart desperation, not 10.
