No. 11 Belmont

Finally, the mid-major that doesn't win their conference gets some respect. Belmont was one of the last teams to make the field after losing to Ja Morant's Racers in the conference final. Belmont draws Temple in a play-in game and would get to play against a struggling and young Maryland team in the first round if they managed to beat Temple. Belmont, like Murray State, also has a pro ready prospect in Dylan Windler, who can take over games.
