NCAA Basketball: Louisiana State at Missouri Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NCAA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Missouri Tigers fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

According to the latest SB Nation Reacts survey from earlier this past week, 59 percent of responding Missouri fans are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That’s down from 68 percent last week. This was before the win at Florida and also before yesterdays home loss to LSU.

Missouri hopes to finish its season strong and earn its spot in the NCAA Tournament. This time of year, schools like Duke, Michigan State and Kentucky are normally fighting for seeding. This year those three powerhouse programs are fighting just to reach the field of 68.

Just over one third of fans believe Michigan State has the best chance of that group to reach the NCAA Tournament while another third of fans believe Duke has the inside track. Only 18 percent believe Kentucky has the best odds while 12 percent believe none of those teams will receive a bid.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, Gonzaga has continued to role through its schedule while holding a tight grip on the No. 1 spot in the country. Nearly two-thirds of fans believe Gonzaga will complete the season undefeated, earning the program’s first National Championship.
