I've taken the initiative to move the last of the thread, "March Madness 2019," to this new thread...

I can just imagine you and your buddies elbowing your way in to buy tickets and then sitting with the BYU crowd...hilarious!

If anyone is interested in a full WCC Tournament package, your best bet is to contact either the PU (Alex Hambel at 310-506-4764 or LMU (Kyle Knickerbocker at 310-338-4537/310-338-5466) ticket offices.  Although I haven't spoken with them recently, before Christmas they still had a number of tickets available.

For those interested in The Orleans as a place to bunk while in Las Vegas, their number is 800-675-3267 or online at https://orleanscasino.reztrip.com/classic/en/searches/5e18d8df0927de6aae201eb6/hotels/OR/rooms?action=show&controller=landings&rate_code=#?category=

In the Offer Code space, enter WCCFN20

I just checked, there is availability March 4-8, but the cost is pretty steep at approximately $155 including taxes and "resort fee."  (I didn't check beyond Sunday as that is when the GU fans begin arriving  Evil or Very Mad )

When I have stayed there in the past, I found it was better to make reservations by phone and it is good to check back with them almost daily as there are cancelations as teams start doing poorly during the season.

I guess everyone finds their niche in life, and for this guy it's CBI/CIT bracketologies. I respect the commitment.

And he's got the Pilots in the CBI? I'm on record somewhere on this forum as saying I have no interest in the third-tier tournaments but after the past half decade I'd be happy for the Pilots to sneak into one of these things this year.

Unlikely. I think you need a winning record to be eligible.

That was my first thought, too.

Then I looked at last year's CBI field and saw that Northridge got in with a 13-20 record and a 260-ish Kenpom, which could well be close to where the Pilots end up this year. (I think that's more of an exception than the rule, though)

Yeesh. Even if it is allowed by the CBI’s rules for a team to participate with a losing record, it should be disallowed by any sense of pride and decorum that UP might have.
