Based on games played up through last night, we are the 4th seed and Montana State is the 5th and we will play each other Thursday. Hopefully we can get the third win over the Bobcats.

Chaos and commotion surrounding us in the standings but we at least know who we will be playing.

Fairly solid game. Lineup change and other adjustments might scare me a little in any given minute, but in the end that allowed PSU to finish strong.

Plus a rather loud student section last night. Go figure.

So MSU, EWU, UM is the probable path to the promised land.

The only thing that really sticks out to me as a problem is our rebounding versus EWU.

And then probably Gonzaga. :D

I'll declare that, after athletes end up getting tested positive, there may not be an NCAA tournament.

The Big 10 and AAC cancelled their tournaments this morning. The WAC had started playing, but a game was cancelled because of a sick athlete.

Kind of thinking Portland State was on a roll. Definitely wanted to see the Oregon women go all the way. But more important things.

UPDATE: Tournament cancelled.

It may come down to having an overwrought conference reorganization/movement discussion right now, because everything else is going to close up for a month or two.

That's unfortunate that the tourney was canceled. We were playing some pretty good basketball at just the right time. I feel really bad for the seniors. It's one thing to lose and it be over, but for it just to be over is rough.
