Cincinnati wins The American for the second consecutive season with a strong 69-57 win over Houston.

Now it's time to wait and see how many teams we get in the tournament.

Where are all those "one bid league" posters? Four bids vs 3 for PAC-12 and Big East

Really surprised we got four. I thought it would be 3 for sure.

Too bad the conference couldn’t be good when we went into the tourney. Probably would have gotten much better seeding.

Some really tough matchups that could shed a very positive light on the AAC going forward. Let’s hope that no miracle upsets or full court buzzer beaters derail the AAC this year.

A second round Tenn/ Cincy matchup? Wow....steel cage match.

Houston/ Iowa st : a must win for the AAC

IF UCF can get by VCU the whole world will ask if Tacko can keep Zion out of the lane.

Temple needs to beat Belmont to prove the fourth bid was deserved. If so they get a very tough Maryland with Fernando.

Good stuff. Go AAC!

Good opportunities for our league and really nice to have 4 teams in, but need to get past all of these 1st round losses and even our high seeds (Houston this year) not advancing to the round of 16.

Heard on the radio this morning that Dunphy's contract at Temple is up after the NCAA tournament. Rumors have it he may be headed to GW.

Dunphy is headed to the pub. And maybe the TV Circuit.

Extra proud of our boys for how they close they played Cincy.

Our boys played great against Cincy and showed that when they had everyone they could hang. Would have loved the win on Friday but at least we made them sweat it. The way we came back in the middle of the second half was awesome. The kids just need more confidence.

Absolutely. Jank is going to have to make some players out of what he has, whoever they may be next year.
