Matt Norlander's Mid-Major Power Pyramid has this Louisiana Tech notation: "could be a 12 seed if things break right" plus this background:
10. Louisiana Tech (19-3).Jason Jones has identified what powers Raheem Appleby. Will a commercial tie-in banner soon be hanging in the Thomas Assembly Center?
Why it's here: Think I'm overrating the Bulldogs here? They have a 3-1 top-100 record, and if the tournament was seeded this afternoon, I think we're looking at a possible 12 seed here, if Southern Miss keeps getting better (lost to La. Tech). La. Tech is running strong through the WAC and has a decent macro profile.
Something you should know: The Bulldogs get help from their bench in 39.4 percent of available minutes, second in Pyramid teams only to super-deep Wichita State.
Jason Groves offers a commentary that the Aggies season can be summarized by a five-letter word.
