BWC Tournament

#1 Post by poidog » Fri Mar 04, 2016 9:07 am

Assuming that UCI beats UCR on Saturday, these are the first round match-ups for the conference tournament:

1 Hawaii
8 CS Fullerton

4 UCSB
5 UC Davis

6 UC Riverside
3 LBSU

7 Cal Poly
2 UC Irvine

If we get by Fullerton, there is a scary potential second round match-up against UCSB, which as been on a win streak since we beat them. I was hoping that UCSB and Davis would end up on the same side of the bracket as Irvine, but it didn't shake out that way. Either way, we will have to beat at least 2 good teams to win the tournament, it seems. I'm pulling for Riverside to get to the championship game with us so we can get some revenge (and play a team that we didn't already beat twice).

Yeah, I noticed that last night too. I'll be rooting for Davis in that quarterfinal...would rather not deal with a potential 10-game win streak Guachos team.

That said, UH has to go into this knowing it will be a dog fight. Every single year at least one of the big dogs in the Big West goes down early in this tournament. It's called March Madness for a reason, crazy stuff happens. Fullerton, UCSB, whoever...UH needs to be at their best. Thrilled with last night's win, but let's be honest...they play like that in Anaheim, they aren't winning the tournament. It's time to step up...in particular, it would be nice to see top-notch Rod Bobbitt back next week. He's been on the back of a milk carton for a few weeks now.

1)Cut down on the turnovers, and 2)make 80-90% of their free-throws, and 3)win on the boards - the Warriors will win the BWC. Continue with that trend and the Warriors will definitely be the 1st UH team to go past the 1st round.

IMHO this team when playing cohesive ball, can beat anyone in the county.

the tournemant reseeds. we will always face the lowest team. If we win round one and there's any upsets, we play the lowest seed.
When in doubt, burn it down.

ahhh... so we should just cheer for as many upsets as possible then (except when we are playing, of course).

The tourney is pretty much home court for most of the teams. However, with 7 road wins this season, might not be much of a factor.

I would love to see that too, haha!

The Gauchos would be a much tougher opponent than Davis imo. Although we beat both Davis and UCSB twice, as of right now the hottest team on a streak is UCSB and I also think we would have more fans at the Honda Center than Davis or SB.

third time is the charm vs LBSU. Too bad we lost fleming. If smith is hurt our depth is really thin.
Starters played a ton of minutes last night.
