Thread: WCC Tournament Schedule under new Format?

  1. #1

    Default WCC Tournament Schedule under new Format?

    OK, so we know the championship format is changing this season, with a return to a format that heavily favors the top 2 seeds. But do we yet know the days when these games will take place? Would the 7-10 seeds play on Thursday, 5-6 join the party on Friday, 3-4 play in the third round on Saturday, then bye on Sunday, semifinals on Monday and championship on Tuesday? Or would they shift the championship to Monday and move everything up a day? Once BYU arrived in 2012, there were nine teams and the 8/9 game was on Wednesday, with 5/6 joining Thursday, 3/4 joining Friday, and the semifinals on Saturday (and championship on Monday). The same schedule was followed in 2013. So maybe I just answered my own question....Anyway, didn't see anything official out there yet.

    Some info here, bettingman. End of the article seems to indicate that the #1 & #2 seeds don't jump in until the semis Monday night, if I am reading that correctly.

    Maybe you forgot to include a link? I guess my the simple version of my question is whether it is Semis on Saturday with Championship on Monday, or Semis on Monday with Championship on Tuesday.

    Las Vegas is scheduled for March 7th through the 12th. My guess is Semi's on Monday and Finals on Tuesday.

    Yeah, I see that on the Zag schedule. Will make things awfully interesting from a travel perspective. I wonder how many Zags will simply fly in Sunday night now and not be there for the Fri-Sat games. Of course, this has become an annual tradition for many WCC hoops fans, so we'll see....
