      That’s the one.

        It is more unusual than not that WSU has not won more conference tournaments over the last several decades. We haven't ever snuck into the tourney like others have.

        I thought that both the 2004 and 2005 Turgeon teams were good enough to win the tourney but then UNI comes out of the blue and wins it. Turgeon told me that he thought we beat SIU if we beat Creighton in 2004. That’s when they stole the ball late from Randy Burns.

        Marshall's 2011 and 2012 teams were good enough to win but just couldn't quite do it. Look at St Marys, who lost to Gonzaga by 48 points earlier in the year !!! pull an upset. We didn't lose to Cincy or Houston by no freaking 48 points.

        I think we are tourney worthy next year, so why not finally sneak in this year?

            I can see us getting maybe one upset, but three? Not very likely. We'd have to play our best ball for 4 games in a row. We barely sneaked by against subpar competition in our last 2 games.

            Dont rule out the possibility that our likely opponents might not play even their average game against us or they might play badly and get upset before getting to us!

              How mad would you all be if we make it to the championship game and then lose to Houston by 2 points?

                I would be happy that we locked up an NIT bid but so mad that we just missed the NCAAs by 3 points.

                I think if we get that far, coach needs to go Herb Brooks on them.

              I'm glad we aren't playing UCONN. They look really good with Jalen Adams back.

                If UCONN was up against anyone other than Houston, I'd take the Huskies. They are scary athletic and plenty good to beat a bunch of really good teams at or near full strength. I just think Houston is a little too tough.

              Watching Houston and UConn. Where the devil are their fans? I can understand UConn but I would certainly expect a larger Houston presence... They are not only flying under the radar nationally but unappreciated by their own fans, in my opinion.

                  Apparently, the game is rated NC-17. So parents kept the kids away.

                    This brings me joy since some UCONN fan started yelling at us last night for simply cheering on our team, telling us we suck and all that. I hope that SOB is miserable right now.

                      How are there not more fans at the Memphis-UCF game? I figured Memphis fans would fill
                      the place.

                        At work so can't see the game. There's no Memphis Tiger crowd and the game is being played in Memphis? That's just pathetic. You know IBA would be f***king rockin' right now with yellow and black. Imagine next year in Ft Worth, a much easier drive down I-35. The American better be prepared for Root Angry next year.

                      Does anyone think that if this event were in Wichita, it would pretty much sell out? At the very least every session WSU played.

                        I’d be at every game for at least a half.

                      Memphis is allowed to do whatever they want on defense there. Constant hacking.
