Assuming, of course, there are 10 teams.

And you are asking fans of 40% of the schools in the tournament to pay up front for a trip and 4 days in Vegas without any assurance they will even be in the 8 team " real" tournament bracket.

How exactly is that different from what it has been? The WCC has had a double-bye for several years now, meaning four days of conference tournament play. And it's even worse right now, with BYU not playing on Sundays.

Thanks for validating the point.

Didn't go last year. Won't go this year. Not going to Vegas to sit for a day. I don't gamble.

You and blacksheep (and Stonehouse too) need to remember that Sunday is NASCAR, baby....

For those of you planning to head to the WCC Tournament in Las Vegas there will be pregame socials before every UP menís and womenís game at Brendanís Irish Pub inside The Orleans Casino 90 minutes prior to each gameÖ..for as long as either team is in the tournament.

Also, if you are interested in joining UP alums, fans, and friends for golf while in Las Vegas, you can send me a PM or contact the UP Alumni Office @ 888-872-5867 to add your name to the list. We donít have the final info yet, but plan to set up tee times for Thursday Ė Monday, March 7-11, and will contact you when we have a final plan.
