    I don't know who we could have drawn for either game that would be better. Gotta think UTA is our best away option (not just because it's convenient for me, but for distance/recruiting as well). And GC is probably going to be their best (or close to it) team, so that's an RPI booster at home (compared to just about anyone we might have scheduled without this thing).

    Can't imagine this isn't the last year though, the WAC is going through some more hard times.

    Yep. GCU/Seattle to WCC. UT-RGV to SLC. That leave 4 Texas schools & 3 Utah Schools & 1 California. I can't imagine them staying together, but the SLC already has 11.

    Serious question for those of you that follow this early/invitational tournaments- Why aren't we in someone's tournament most years? I have my thoughts but would love to hear everyone else's thoughts.
