I’m a bit tight for time, so this is going to be very brief. A big thanks to some folks on Twitter that provided this information there.

Charlotte can find themselves as high as 2nd, as low as 5th, and a 5th place finish would mean missing out on a double bye. That’d force Charlotte to need 4 ins in 4 days to win the AAC tournament, which is what the Women’s team faces as well. The image you see here (below on mobile) shows all the AAC seeding possibilities prior to any games yesterday and brought to you by @andreweatherman.

Per @NickCarboniWCNC, these are the scenarios for Charlotte to clinch a double by:

– Beat ECU Saturday = no lower than No. 3
– Beat ECU, + Memphis W vs. FAU on Sunday = No. 2
– UAB def. SMU Sunday = top 4 regardless of ECU result

Curious as to how Charlotte lands in the 5th spot? Look no further. This is also from @andreweatherman: Charlotte loses to ECU (3/9 @ 4pm ET) + Memphis beats FAU (3/9 @ 12pm ET) + SMU beats UAB (3/10 @ 4pm ET).

Ultimately, Charlotte’s destiny is still in their hands, beat ECU tomorrow and they are a lock for a double bye in Texas. Charlotte is 7-7 all-time at ECU, after a disappointing overtime loss at SMU, and ECU is sure to be looking to bounce back at Minges on Senior Night. If you are a Charlotte fan making the trek to Greenville, there are plenty of good seats still available for this one.
