I'm not that excited about any matchup, but I'd rather play OSU or Washington than any other team. Hopefully that one win will secure our NIT bid!

I haven't seen SC play since we lost badly to them. But in looking at their record, when they lose, they don't score a lot of points (usually in the 60's). When they win, they score high 70's or more. I know our D has improved over the last few months, how have they progressed?

To be frank, if we get momentum early, I like our chances.

Anyone going to Vegas? I'm hopeful that it is a positive for the conference and can become a permanent home. This would be a fun annual trip.

He got in a brawl in downtown Spokane after their loss to Wazzu. This is a huge break for the Utes. Dedmon had 13 pts 13 boards and 5 blocks the first time around. He pretty much owned us.

Agree. Two things killed us in SLC. One: They shot the lights out from 3 in the first half(they were something like 20% as a team going in), and Two: They bullied us around inside. Washburn should have a much better game Wednesday. I am trying to swing some things at work so I can go down. I am excited to see how this one goes.

There are 6 Pac-12 teams that we did not beat this season: USC, Cal, WSU, UCLA, Stanford, and Arizona. The tournament is set up so that it's possible for us to grab 4 revenge wins against 4 of these teams in 4 days.

Washburn and company can play with any team in the league based on what we saw Saturday vs Oregon. Cal included.

The story of the USC players' brawl. (http://www.atvn.org/news/2013/03/witness-usc-basketball-brawl-speaks-out) Pretty embarrassing to USC fans (well, those who are capable of being embarrassed by any Trojan athlete's behavior).



Heather, who did not want her last name revealed, said the evening began at a club with her co-workers.

"One of the players and one of our employees kind of exchanged words because they bumped into each other at the bar," she said. Nothing more continued after that encounter.
Later in the evening as Heather and her friends left the club, she said they saw the basketball players again. The athletes recognized her group of friends, approached them and initiated a fight, knocking down one of the restaurant employees, said Heather.


"Another one of our friends was picking him up, the girl--that same player--hit her face and then they both went down," she explained.
Heather said, at that moment, she immediately called the police. Meanwhile, a fight among seven people pursued.


The athletes took off when they heard the Spokane police was on its way, Heather explained.


After speaking with the police to report the brawl, Heather said she and her friends encountered the basketball players one more time at a different location.


"At this point, myself and another girl, we went and hid in a doorway 'cause there was a huge fight and we were on the phone with 911," said Heather.


Heather saw a passerby uninvolved in the fight get "knocked out," and a player continued to kick him as he was down on the ground.


"It was more sad to see the people get hurt that were not involved, that were literally standing, watching, on the phone with the police," she said.


Heather and her co-workers were able to identify the athletes as Trojans because they yelled, "'we're representing USC; this is my teammate; I follow them; I stick up for them,'" she said.


Four people were hospitalized, according to Heather, one of which has broken bones in his face and no insurance to cover the damages.

In my mind, if we get by USC, Cal has been idle for a while, we match up well with oregon and Washington. who knows?

I know, its a long shot, and believe me, Im happy regardless of what happens tonight.

This program is going in the right direction. And I haven't been able to say that in a loooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggggggggg time.

The NIT doesn't take sub-.500 teams for their at-large pool.

The CBI is another story, but I think we would have to get to the tournament finale and finish at 16-18 to get there.

Is CU playing for their tournament lives in this game? Or was the win against Oregon enough to offset two losses to OSU to close out the season?

Two losses to the last place team would certainly be a black eye. Last time out, they were missing Roberson. He is back for this one, so I see them prevailing. But if they stumble.......they better hope for things to go chalk in the other tourneys.

I wasn't certain about the NIT, thanks. I think the tournament final is to much of a stretch for me to hope for. Oh, well.

Washington winning would give about 10 bubble teams a heart attack. It would ensure a team outside the projected field is one win away from stealing an at-large berth.

Washington winning would give about 10 bubble teams a heart attack. It would ensure a team outside the projected field is one win away from stealing an at-large berth.

And this is exactly why I love this time of year. IMO, it's always good when one or two teams mess up the entire field for the selection committee. The greatest thing that could happen this year is for Utah to pull off the upsets and win the PAC-12 tournament because Utah would go dancing and one or two teams will be beating their heads against the wall in disbelief that they didn't get in.
