2018 C-USA Tournament
Below is the bracket, which will be updated as the tournament goes on.
Southern Miss 69
USM's return to the CUSA Tournament is rewarded with a Second Round meeting with #1 Middle Tennessee
The Roadrunners surprisingly strong campaign continues to the Second Round after setting aside their Texas rivals. UTSA will take on the high-scoring Marshall Thundering Herd tomorrow.
Louisiana Tech vs. North Texas and FAU vs. UAB.
North Texas 62
The biggest head-scratch of the 2017-2018 CUSA season has been Louisiana Tech. Despite their poor showing in the regular season, the Dunkin' Dawgs have the talent, the experience, and culture to make a run in the C-USA Tournament. Tech took that first step for a deep run with their win over the local team, North Texas, and will see Old Dominion in the Second Round
Blazers led for the entirety of the game, aside from the opening few seconds when the Owls had a 1-0 advantage. UAB will face WKU Thursday night in the Second Round, less than a week after UAB beat the Hilltoppers in Birmingham.
Here is the updated bracket going into the Second Round:
Bolstered by hitting 13 three-pointers, Southern Miss pulled off the dramatic upset, knocking off top-seeded Middle Tennessee, 71-68, in overtime in the quarterfinals. The ninth-seeded Golden Eagles (15-17) will advance to face Marshall at 1:30 pm on Friday.
There are 4 teams with 22 or more wins, so on the surface it would seem like more than 1 team deserves to go.
Rick saidTypically one team as of late…I don't recall the last time C-USA had two teams in The Dance…Posted On: Mar 9th 2018, 9:27 AM
In was in 2012, one of the final years of "CUSA 2.0." Both Southern Miss and Memphis made the tournament.
