The only thing I would add to that is that, although I did not start off the season expecting any postseason play at all, I did get my hopes up a bit. Our RPI was as good as 30 mid-season, and we were still hovering in the high 40's-low 50's late in the year. By the time we reached the conference semis, both number one seeds had been surprisingly knocked out, and we were playing a team we had beaten twice by a combined 47. We were hoping for a CT title and seemed even to have a shot at an at-large NT berth if we won only the semis.
But we lost that one by 34. We were a 3 seed in the PIT, and managed convincing home and road wins before falling hard on the road to the region's 1 seed. That team, Carroll, improved by that win to 30-1! But they lost in the PIT final four.
