View Full Version : Extra game

Now that the Pitt game is not counted as an official game could we now add an extra game between the end of the WCC tourney and the start of the Ncaa tourney ? I feel the 10 day layoff is a little too long and maybe leaves us a little rusty. I think a nice tuneup game would help a lot more than just beating each other up for 10 days.

SMC has done that a # of times. Think it would depend on the RPI hit. The ideal match-up would be a good team that loses a game to the weather somewhere along the line.

But if memory serves, the stronger conferences have their Tourneys later & thus have less time to kill before the Main Event.

Quite a few of the so-called "Power conference" tourneys conclude on the Saturday before or on Selection Sunday.

Not sure what's going on in the academic calendar between the end of the WCC tourney (3/8) and Selection Sunday ( 3/13). With the travel days from Vegas to Spokane and then from Spokane to the NCAA site, there are fewer available days to squeeze in an extra game.

Just reschedule Pitt.

Few tried. Pitt said they have no open dates.
