RTC Live: WCC TournamentPosted by rtmsf on March 5th, 2009
Update (3/9): There’s no question which games RTC Live will be covering tonight, because the Championship game will feature the matchup everyone was hoping for – Gonzaga vs. St. Mary’s. Check back with us at 6pm PDT for Michael Vernetti’s liveblog from the sidelines at the Orleans Arena for this blockbuster matchup.
Update (3/8): Tonight’s RTC Live will be Gonzaga vs. Santa Clara. Let’s cross our fingers that the connectivity issues won’t be a problem again tonight. See you then!
Update (3/7): San Diego held on against LMU, so tonight’s RTC Live event for the WCC will be Santa Clara against San Diego.
Hello WCC fans, and welcome to RTC Live’s ongoing coverage of the WCC Tournament from Las Vegas, Nevada. Our correspondent so long as we can keep him out of the casinos, Mike Vernetti, will be live-blogging and reporting from Sin City throughout the weekend. If there’s a major incident at the Orleans Arena that involves a round sphere entering a hoop twice its size (bad analogy), Vernetti will be there. Plus he might send us some photos of some of his personal ’extracurriculars’ on the RTC expense account, which is worth the price of admission by itself. The Tournament begins Friday night with two opening round games, so Mike has already published his WCC Tourney Preview for your viewing pleasure.
We’ll also be live-blogging select games throughout the weekend, starting Friday night with the #5/#8 matchup between San Diego and Loyola Marymount at 6pm PST. If you’re new to the site, the live-blog box will show immediately below this paragraph, and Mike 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 how USD’s Rob Jones feels about all those questions about his family, here’s your opportunity. Afterwards, we’ll post takes from the day’s other games in the WCC Tourney and give you, the fans, a chance to select Saturday’s game that we liveblog.
