If we defeat GSU tomorrow, we win the South Division (at least a share). Two wins and we win the league and get (at worst) an NIT bid. Due to the screwy 11 team league this year, the North teams play one less game than the South teams. Therefore, if we split, Elon probably gets the #1 seed and we would be 2 or 3, depending on which game we lose.

That's good info. Thanks!

I'd prefer a sweep of these last two, as we all would.
