Interesting to watch the Mercer/FGCU game Friday. Having personally watched FGCU at SC Upstate the saturday prior, this game was huge for the Eagles. Mercer came into Ft. Myers leading the Atlantic Sun Conference holding a one game edge over FGCU. FGCU wound up beating the Bears(soundly I will add) but I have to question the methods of Mercer head coach Bob Hoffman. From start to finish Bob Hoffman was upset at the officials. Unreal. Look at the tape. Hand on hips. Constant complaining. Head shaking. Yelling. Constant disagreement. The officials were the reason you lost the game Bob, just ask Jim Boeheim. I guess the whole dressing in all black didn't help.
A split on the dreadful Montana swing, I'll take for Weber State. Still leading the Big Sky at 12-4 with four games remaining in conference play.
This got my attention. After Wichita State pounded Drake saturday night 83-54, Drake head coach Ray Giacoletti said, "If you're a skeptic about Wichita State, then that's on you." Coach Giac was an assistant with Gonzaga last year, when the Shockers beat them. "And they're much better this year." Who knows how good the Wheat Shockers really are so I could care less where they are ranked in the polls or where they will be seeded. They are 29-0 though.
Huge win for Boise State in overtime over UNLV in what I thought was most exciting game I've seen this year. I know the Mountain West has not produced many wins come the NCAA tournament but three teams at least will get in, if not four.
