    I forget who wrote it, butI think someone on this site noted that UC Davis will not be eligible for the NCAA tournament even if they win the Big West tournament. They need to have played 25 Div. 1 games and after tomorrow, they will only have played 22. Is that correct? If so, does that mean that the leagues tournament game do not count? If they do, UCD will have played 25.

    I think the tournament counts as one game, no matter how many you actually play

    This assessment and Dr. Mike's qualifier below it are correct per this site: https://www.on3.com/news/ncaa-tournament-selection-committee-sets-minimum-game-requirement-for-eligibility/

    (25 games with tourney counting as one). However there's a case-by-case waiver process. I would hope that UCD has already done everything possible to secure such a waiver and it would be weird to keep fans in the dark about it if the AD did/has not going into the tournament.

    I would hope they have the waiver worked out since it would probably have been possible to add a Monday game vs a D2 team to pad the number

    The site that Zander posted states that the window for waivers was from Feb. 14-25, so UC Davis would have had to apply for a waiver two weeks ago. I would think they would have announced such an appeal? If they did appeal (and why wouldn't they?), maybe they are waiting for an answer. I imagine that the players would be much more motivated if they knew they had a shot at the big dance. What the last two games of the season showed me was that this team is capable of beating any team in the conference if they playing as well as they can.

    The good old 8:30 tip off! It seems like we always have weird start times in the tournament. 5 1/2 point favorites. We really stunk back them the one time we played - hopefully chalk it up to COVID rustiness. Their big win over Irvine was a surprise. Let’s hope we rise up and get to Thursday

    Wish I was there! I might have to take a nap before tip off. As Mike said, we did not play well at SLO, but it certainly feels like we are in a better mode right now. Hopefully Pepper and Milling can both find their 3 point stroke early.

    I won't even be able to watch the game on ESPN+ live, because my wife and I are having a special dinner tonight at the same time. Will try to replay.

    first time around, they were lights out in the first half taking a 37-27 lead. they shot 56% from the field, 57% from 3 in the first half, while we struggled with 36/22%. second half we even though we were fouling down the stretch. Need to get off to a good start tonight and get our shooters going. Anigwe had 20 which would be nice to repeat. Poly isnt a great shooting team (40%) and turn the ball over. If we stay out of foul trouble, I think our defense leads us to a victory.

    Somebody's thoughts on betting the Big West tournament. He thinks six teams have a chance of winning. Ags are not any of them.

    Does anyone know of any Vegas casinos where you can put wagers on any Big West games?

    I actually found some bets. UC Davis is +1400 to win the tourney, and -235 money line for the Cal Poly game at the Orleans. I placed $100 each on both.

    #9 Bakersfield 24 #8 CSUN 23 at the half.

    As a note, Dollar Loan Center is not on Google Maps since it's too new. Henderson Multigenerational Center is the closest I see on Google Maps.

    Just turned on the game 19-17 with 4 to go. Lousy offensive start? Looks like Pepper and Manjon have a total of 2?
  • DrMike
    613
    We look pretty bad here. Taylor has 14 of their 21?

    We don’t have much flow. Fuller posting a lot. Even Pepper with a forced post (make)
  • Oldbanduhalum

    It hasn’t been very smooth. We played a lot of time with no center. I don’t think it was foul trouble but rather coaches decision. If we could make a few jump shots we’d be up big. Like the defensive intensity
  • BlueGoldAg
    955
    Pretty good defense by the Ags. We've forced 10 TO's. 22 of our 27 points were in the paint. 0-5 from 3. Neither offense seems like they can create much separation. This game will probably go down to the wire.
  • DrMike

    Pepper can’t buy a bucket. I don’t like the feel of this game. Seems like we should’ve pulling away but poly is right there, 36-31

    Offensive fouls are ridiculous
  • BlueGoldAg

    The only reason we are leading is because Koroma has been on the bench with foul trouble but now, with Murphy and Anigwe in foul trouble, Koroma is back in and that's trouble for the Ags.

    Started watching late but I'm caught up to real time. The game must have started late? Feels like the refs are calling it a bit too tight. Ags only 2 of 10 from 3.
  • DrMike
    613
    I expect we might run some zone to help with the big guys inside since we’re getting guys in foul trouble. They don’t shot the 3 well
  • Toke69

    Nice to have professional broadcasters especially after that Long Beach State game.

    Good to see Pepper hit that 3. He was only 1 of 7 before that. I hope he goes on a streak now, because I note he's been pretty cold lately. Ags need to put these guys away, but Cal Poly has stayed close to their credit.
