2013 Summit League Postseason Projections–3/9

Filed under: Men's Basketball,The Summit League — Jon Green @ 10:25 am

NINE updates for today’s projections!! Despite all that South Dakota State’s seeding has not changed in any of them, just the opponents. South Dakota State looks like a 14 still today and might need some help to jump into that 13 range. Hopefully they get some of it today.

Matchups currently projected (out of 6 brackets):
Miami – 3
Arizona – 1
Michigan State – 1
Louisville – 1

  2/13 2/20 2/27 3/6 3/7 3/8 3/9 3/10 3/11 3/12 3/13 3/14 3/15 3/16
South Dakota State 14 13.4 14.1 14.1 14.1 14.1 14.1              
North Dakota State 14 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A              
Western Illinois 15.6 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A              

I’ve found the sites I’m using for the projections from It’s a fantastic site linking you to tons of information about various projections out there.

I decided to use seven of their best brackets from last year along with three very prominent brackets. Here’s our panelists:
1. – Lobofan2003’s Bracketology
2. – D1scourse/USA Today’s – Patrick Stevens
3. – Beer’s Bracket
4. – Busting the Bracket
5. – Bracketville
6. – The Bracket Project
7. – Brad-ketology
8. – Yahoo Sports – Brad Evans
9. – CBS Sports – Jerry Palm
10.– ESPN Bracketology – Joe Lunardi

Now yes some of the names may scare you but these guys have been doing brackets for at least three years and have scored the best, all of them better than Joe Lunardi who is the expert of the field.

Here’s the projections they have. Green indicates an improvement in seed. Red shows a falling seed.

Predictor Team In Seed Opponent/Rank Location Regional Date of Prediction
Lobofan2003 South Dakota State 14 Michigan State Lexington South 3/8/13
Patrick Stevens South Dakota State 14 Miami Austin West 3/8/13

Jerry Palm South Dakota State 14 Arizona Salt Lake City West 3/9/13
Joe Lunardi South Dakota State 14 Miami Austin Midwest 3/8/13

Here’s some other predictions that include NIT (and occasionally CBI/CIT) … just for a taste of what people think.
Bracket Predictions – 3/8 NIT – No Summit League Teams
Brad-Ketology – 3/8 NIT – South Dakota State a #7 seed if they don’t make the NCAA tournament.
Bracket Project – 3/4 NIT – North Dakota State a 7 seed vs. Iowa.
Beer’s Bracket – 3/9 CBI – Has North Dakota State a #1 seed vs. Northwestern State. He also has Western Illinois as a #2 seed in the CIT vs. Arkansas State.
