RTC Live: Arch Madness (MVC Tournament)Posted by rtmsf on March 5th, 2009
Update (3/7). Oops. Our MVC correspondent will be unavailable on Sunday, so we regret to inform you that RTC Live will not be covering the MVC Championship Game. Thank you for those of you who checked in with us the last two days, and we hope to see you again soon.
Update (3/6). RTC Live will be back Saturday with one of the two semifinal matchups. Come back this evening to vote on which game you’d like to see us liveblog. We already know the first matchup is N. Iowa vs. Bradley. Who will be the other two semifinalists?
Update (3/7). The next RTC live game will be Creighton vs. Illinois St. at 4pm CST. Join us for what will undoubtedly be a tremendous battle.
Hello MVC fans, and welcome to RTC Live’s ongoing coverage of Arch Madness from St. Louis, Missouri. Our correspondent and man-on-the-move, Patrick Marshall, will be live-blogging and reporting from the River City throughout the weekend. If there’s a major incident at the Scottrade Center, he’ll be all over it like Rush Limbaugh on Michael Steele. Or something like that. The Tournament begins tonight with two opening round games, so Patrick has already published his MVC Season Wrap and Tournament Preview for your viewing pleasure.
We’ll also be live-blogging select games throughout the weekend, starting tomorrow with the #4/#5 matchup between Bradley and Southern Illinois at 2:30pm CDT. If you’re new to the site, the live-blog box will show immediately below this paragraph, and Patrick will be taking comments and questions throughout the game. Particularly insightful questions will be chosen for him to take into the media press conference and/or locker rooms afterwards. So if you really want to know why SIU underachieved this year (as an example), here’s your opportunity to ask Coach Lowery. Afterwards, we’ll post takes from the day’s other games in the MVC Tourney and give you, the fans, a chance to select Saturday’s game that we liveblog.
