Tonight is the championship game (Track it here) of the WAC tournament. This place will be ready to go tonight. I heard earlier that it was damn close to a sellout. Utah State has a bunch of people in town and they are not quiet. I love this. And I’ll have the best damn seat in the place, so keep your eyes out for me on ESPN2 or whatever it’s on at 6 PST, 9 EST. I’ll be the photographer decked in Nevada gear and running smack at Nate Harris.
After tonight is the big deal. Tomorrow the selections are made for the NCAA tournament. Nevada, as it stands, could go anywhere from a 7 seed to a 4 seed, so it could prove a wild day. I’ll be paying attention.
But tonight is bigger. A win here makes the seeding that much better for the Pack, and it also sends Utah State back to the nervous waiting game by denying them the automatic bid that comes with a tournament championship. I have no problem with that. Watch the game, enjoy it. It will be a good one.
