RTC Live: WAC TournamentPosted by rtmsf on March 11th, 2009
3/14 Update. Crazy night in Reno last night – here’s our wrapup on the semis, and whatever you do, don’t offer the mascot $100 to attack the other mascot. Stay safe out there, Nevadans! Should be a great environment there tonight.
3/13 Update: here’s the live-blog for tonight’s WAC semifinal between Utah St. and New Mexico St., with the second semifinal between Louisiana Tech and the homestanding Nevada following it.
Hello WAC fans, and welcome to RTC Live’s ongoing coverage of the WAC Tournament from Reno, Nevada. We have been fortunate to partner with Travis Mason-Bushman from Vandal Nation, who will be live-blogging and reporting from the Lawlor Events Center throughout the weekend. The Tournament began last night with a single opening round game (Fresno St. defeated Hawaii), but the quarterfinals will begin in earnest on Thursday afternoon. For additional information on this tournament, be sure to check out the comprehensive WAC Tournament preview put together by our regular WAC correspondents, Kevin McCarthy and Sam Wasson.
Travis will be live-blogging select games throughout the weekend, starting tomorrow with the quarterfinal matchup between #1 seed Utah St. and #9 seed Fresno St. This has the potential to be an atypical high/low seed game, as Fresno took the slumping Aggies to overtime in a regular season meeting. If you’re new to the site, the live-blog box will show immediately below this paragraph, and Travis 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. Enjoy the WAC Tournament, and check back here daily to see which games we’ll be live-blogging next.
And be sure to check out the Idaho vs. Louisiana Tech game tonight, live-blogged below.
