Griz only win by 6, but Sac never cut it to one possession.

The Hornets got hot from outside over the last 24 minutes. UM was able to make Josh Patton invisible, though, and that was the difference.

So glad we scored the first 6 points, otherwise this game would be getting out of hand quickly.

There is a clause in Lillard's contract that specifically says Portland State cannot eliminate Weber from the conference tournament as long as he is a Blazer. :lol:

Weber wins by 10, which is really an upset even if it isn't technically one.

Suutah leads NoCo by 14 two minutes into the second half. :shock:

The T-Birds have a knack for being a Cinderella in this tournament, apparently.

Suutah just plain can't miss. 60-39 T-Birds, 11:06 left…

It's like NBA Jam with someone on fire. :? :shock:

Southern Utah wins by 19, upsetting the #2-seed for the second-straight year.

The two biggest threats to the Griz, IMO, are now gone. :shock:

Fun game to watch. Both teams are shooting it lights out and the refs are laying back.

Eastern is winning FG%, rebounding, and TOs, but they only lead by 1 point at the break. Why? Because MSU is 13/14 at the line.

The Eagles blew the 12-point lead, but Hunt just hit a jump shot to put EWU back up by 2 with just over a minute left.

Second-straight Griz game that a ball has been stuck between the basket & the backboard. :?

You know the Griz are up big because Moorehead can't hit the broadside of a barn. :lol:

Griz lead by 28. Sac got hot to get back into yesterday's game, but Weber is still ice cold.

It looks like we'll have a rematch as Eastern leads by 18 at the break.

Southern Utah looks, well, pathetic. They've mostly been just running at the basket and hoping their shots don't get blocked.
