Some games tonight and tommorow will have impact...

Two games tonight that can help us solidy our "position"…bold = our "preference" for winners:

WKU hosts Troy…

FIU hosts UALR

Go Cats, and Go Trojans! (The Arkansas variety that is!)

Tommorow night gets even better…

* Thu, Feb 14
Arkansas State
New Orleans
Jonesboro, Arkansas

* Thu, Feb 14
North Texas
Denver
Denton, Texas

* Thu, Feb 14
Middle Tennessee
South Alabama
Murfreesboro, Tennessee

* Thu, Feb 14
Louisiana-Lafayette
ULM
Lafayette, Louisiana

After tommorow night things should start to get much clearer with the race standings…

But we still need to get THREE of our last 5…….

Go Owls!

Well FIU did thier part and beat UALR by 12.

Troy fell flat against WKU though.

You guys have converted me, Im now checking basketball scores. My wife is gonna kill me now that I seem to be starting ANOTHER FAU sports obsession.

;D

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

pssst…we wanted the ones in bold to win… ;D

so we did get one good one - Troy lost…FIU is now two games back of us…was needing UALR to win to solidy the west and help put them away as well…hopefully someone will take control of the west division soon…otherwise this thing will be a crazy tiebreaker scenario….dont want that!

it look slike Troy is now out of hosting anything alltogether barring a miracle…

lol…i know it gets crazy for hoops…13 teams…the big deal this year is the west is so even…that makes it tough when no one sperates (like WKU and USA does in the east)…

Ok, so i lied!

Tonight's games added lines…this is rediculous…it is possible for a three way tie for first in the west at 7-6…followed by two teams tied for second at 6-7…

thats rediculous!!!

and 2 of our "preferred" W teams are not favored…….

* Thu, Feb 14
Arkansas State -1.5
New Orleans
Jonesboro, Arkansas

* Thu, Feb 14
North Texas -9
Denver
Denton, Texas

* Thu, Feb 14
Middle Tennessee
South Alabama -5
Murfreesboro, Tennessee

* Thu, Feb 14
Louisiana-Lafayette -7
ULM
Lafayette, Louisiana

After tonight we may know nothing but more head spinning…

Re: Some games tonight and tommorow will have impact...

and there you have it…now it is an aboslute rat race in the west:

Denver
7-6
UALR
7-6
Louisiana-Lafayette
7-6
New Orleans
6-7
North Texas
6-7


NOT ONE of the teams we wanted to win won  :-\

and the lines were defied as well in two cases…….

This makes it more crucial for us to finish strong…no wiggle room occuring…….

BUT we do have the edge on UNO and UNT head to head…so even if we tie with them, we gain the higher seed… :)

the one time we want So. Alabama to win… they lose to MTSU

do we have any chance at catching them?

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

mathmatically, yes…but they have four games left…we are likely to finish 3-2 - 9-9 SBC….they would have to lose all of thier remaining games to finish 9-9…

now, granted, one of those will be us…

but here is what they have left besides us:

WKU - loss
Denver - win or loss (Denver plays very well at home)
Troy - win

SO, unlikely that we will catch them…

Wow. Florida_Owl, your head must be close to imploding as mine was trying to follow your equations.


Here's an easy way to look at it: FAU just needs to win!

Like things, love people.
