Where will the Tops end up?

We are a mere hour away from finding out where Western Kentucky will be playing in the NCAA tournament.

After another spectacular March run for Ray Harper, the Hilltoppers are making their way back to their fourth NCAA tournament in the last six years. Ray Harper is now 8-0 in the Sun Belt tournament.

There have been many speculations about where the Hilltoppers will end up playing there first game of the tournament. The Tops could end up playing as far away as Salt Lake City or as close as Lexington, KY.

Will Western Kentucky end up playing the First Round game in Dayton again?

Doubtful.

In my opinion the Hilltoppers will be looking at a playing from the 16 seed in the Second Round.

Another big question looming over the Sun Belt is Middle Tennessee's fate heading into Selection Sunday. I think MTSU has proven theirselves enough in the regular season to qualify for a 12-seed in the NCAA tournament. The Blue Raiders were helped out a lot this week as conference tournaments shook out.

If Ohio State can close out their game with Wisconsin, we could see a potential matchup with the Buckeyes as a 15-seed.

Only time will tell for the Tops. A 16-seed has never defeated a 1-seed in the NCAA tournament but that doesn't scare the Tops headed into the tournament. a healthy Western Kentucky team isn't exactly what one of the best teams in the nation wants to face for their first game.

Let's find out together.
