    Default 2018 NSIC post-season

    So, with only 3 weeks to go, I thought that it may be time to start peeking ahead to the post-season.
    If the season had ended Saturday, here would be our first round Wed. night match-ups.

    Concordia @ Northern
    UMD @ Sioux Falls
    winners meet in Sioux Falls
    ---------------------------------
    Moorhead @ Southwest
    Wayne State @ Minot
    winners meet in Sioux Falls
    ---------------------------------
    Crookston @ Winona
    Upper Iowa @ SCSU
    winners meet in Sioux Falls
    ---------------------------------
    Augie @ Bemidji
    Mary @ Mankato
    winners meet in Sioux Falls
    ---------------------------------

    Obviously, there's lots of games to go But I wouldn't like that as SCSU's bracket at all for their first 2.

    I've yet to see how we match up with Minot (big game on Friday!), but I feel like that would be a pretty good second round matchup

    Well actually, the North #4 seed (Bemidji) will be playing at the South #5 seed (Augie) if the #5 seed has the better NSIC record per the "New in 2018" section here (http://northernsun.org/sports/2018/1...B_Tourney.aspx). HIT THE SIOUX FALLS SUN CONFERENCE MUSIC!!

    Good catch. Hadn't heard about that switch.

    Still time to lose a few more. Bemidji during the winter Olympics would be time to visit

    Wasn’t good enough that Augustana get only 75% guaranteed home court every year I guess.

    Also South 3/4 seeds are currently tied at 11-7 with USF and Winona splitting the season series. Not sure how that'd shake out in the tiebreakers. Augie being the 5 with a home game and playing Mankato at the Pentagon is a deliciously good break as of now.

    Boy, I don't like SCSU's draw in this version. Upper(who has already beaten them) and if they were to find a way thru that one, Winona, who is playing as well as anyone right now. ISH

    Will be interesting weekend coming up for UIU. A lot of scenarios given they are one game behind Augie and Wayne...who both have to play Winona as well during the weekend. They could jump all the way to 4th, move to 5th, or stay right where they are at. Glad we are at home to close out...should be a fun finish!

    Since SCSU is locked into the 2 spot in the North, I would really like it if the South could find a way to make Wayne the 7 as opposed to Upper or Augie. Then we';; tale our chances playing Winona in the second round.

    Based on our previous match up with you guys, I'm kind of surprised you would prefer Wayne over the Vikes.

    No, we would rather get a home game on that Wed. night as opposed to traveling to Sioux Falls. :)

    HORRIBLE draw for Southwest! The team we arguably played our worst against, followed by likely a true road game against Augie. And if we're still alive by then we get Northern.

    Huge game in Marshall Friday.

    Unfortunately, both Marshall boys and girls games so the crowd will be hurt. All the same people attend these games so the crowd will be divided by 3.

    The University should try and do a mini Hawaiian Night thing Friday to get students there to help with the crowd. I don't work there so we'll see if anyone reads this message board and jumps on that.
