Dayton will be playing for NCAA Tournament seeding only, with a chance to get on the No. 1 line if they can win the event, and even if they fall they still might be there thanks to the losses by San Diego State and the recent form of Baylor.

And with Obi Toppin as likely the best player in Brooklyn, they’ll be a favorite to do it. Richmond seems to be the other closest team that could get an at-large, and they’re on the stone bubble as of now. A run to the final would likely make their case a lot stronger even with a loss to Dayton.
