    I miss not being able to watch these games in person at the Pentagon.

    NCAA website is reporting these times (Central), but other sources (http://evansvillesports.org/events/m...ht-basketball/ and https://campus.mst.edu/athleticsarch...r-regtourn.htm) are reporting an hour later. Makes me wonder if the NCAA is thinking Evansville is on Eastern time and converting them? (they are indeed on Central)

    Why is NW as the 1 seed playing in the second game of their session? That gives them less time to rest than their potential semifinal opponents. The evening schedule makes sense with the 2 seed playing the first game.

    I guess culture will have to overcome adversity.

    Because that is where the West Texas A&M coaches deemed that they should play. :)

    Yes we do, same as the majority of the rest of the US. However, the majority of Indiana is on Eastern while the Northwest and Southwest corners of the state observe Central time (Chicago time).

    Good point. But in the grand scheme of things it really prob doesn’t matter. If we lose it won’t be because of a few hours less rest.

    Agreed. I'd much rather play at 2:30 than 12. However, the ideal time for the #1 seed would have been the 6pm slot with the 4/5 matchup after. Maybe they are trying to capitalize on USI being the hometown team and selling more tickets by having them play at 6pm.

    i would imagine you’re right as to why. regardless as long as we’re not turning the lights on or off it hardly matters and even then only barely so (if that had been the case)

    i was just throwing a diff perspective out there. ppl are bored if that’s a narrative

    I'm glad our brilliant AD saved WSU some money by not keeping Brown and Gove at WSU, letting them go to West Texas A&M. Think of all the money we are saving by not going to the elite 8 the last few years...That guy is always thinking.

    I spent 3 years explaining this to to every speaker I brought in while working at USI. Wrote it in to contracts, highlighted it in all correspondence... Every year I still had one or two who messed up the timing. At least it always meant they were earlier than they intended.

    I wish the 2:30 p.m. time was eastern, that hour would make my trip easier. I admit I was hoping for a noon start time. At least, living in Indiana is paying off well for following NW in the post season this academic year though. Easy trips to the football playoff games in Michigan, fairly easy trip to Evansville for basketball as well.

    We love the Winona AD and administration! Geniuses all. We really love our AD McBroom and our former Pres Pat O'Bien for having the foresight to hire Brown and Gove.

    Brown and Gove at WT took over a team that went 10-17 in 2013-14.

    2014-15 17-12
    2015-16 21-10
    2016-17 26-9
    2017-18 32-4
    2018-19 34-3

    9-2 in NCAA tournament at WT

    thanks. I guess I had it in my mind that Indiana and Arizona did not change their clocks twice a year

    I spent a few summer weeks in northeast Indiana 40+ years ago and remembered that Ohio was eastern time and Indiana central. We were told by some of the locals that they were eastern time until daylight savings but they didn't change their clocks.

    Some research shows that Indiana became the 48th state to recognize daylight savings time state wide in 2006.

    I thought I remembered Indiana being an exception when I was younger - glad to know I haven't completely lost my mind.
