Worst draw possible for the Hornets. Was hoping to get one of the Idalol teams. If the Hornets get bounced by Weebs, then they miss out on a winning season and Orr probably has the cover he needs to be done with Katz. Should be an interesting week.

First Round Lines

Sac by 4
SUU by 11.5
NAU by 4

I'd take Sac & NAU to cover, but not SUU.

Sac beat Weber by 8 and SUU beat Idaho by 6. Harding & Allen each scored more than half their team's points in those losses.

I blame my best man. He's in Vegas (always goes to the Pac 12 tourney) and bet on NAU

NAU's woken up, and it's now a 4-point game.

Does NAU bring Burcar back next year as their full time coach?

Huge win by Sac. We've played EWU tough both times, so there's a chance at least.

Not sure if the win over Weebs will keep Katz in Sac, but not sure how a win over EWU doesn't. :?

Anytime you try to beat an opponent 3 times in a season is tough, regardless. Anyone know if Frey is playing for the Cats?

This. I’m guessing that’s part of why the BSC cancelled. I’ll bet the NCAA pulls the plug by the end of today.
