Louisiana Tech 68
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


UAB 83
FAU 72

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:

Being new to C-USA, is it typically a 1-bid or multi-bid league?  Sounds like many talking heads still believe MTSU will get into the big dance, meaning multiple teams from the conference make it.  That is going to be bad news for some P5 school.

There are 4 teams with 22 or more wins, so on the surface it would seem like more than 1 team deserves to go.

Typically one team as of late…I don't recall the last time C-USA had two teams in The Dance…

In was in 2012, one of the final years of "CUSA 2.0." Both Southern Miss and Memphis made the tournament.
