    ***Official Diamond Head Classic Tournement Thread***

    I know this is slightly early and nothing to take away from last nights win (an incredible one for that matter), but we are 8-0 and let's keep this train rolling!!

    Here's the bracket and matchups:

    Game 1
    ISU (8-0) Vs George Mason (5-4) ESPNU 530 PM

    Game 2
    Oregon State (4-2) vs Akron (2-2) ESPNU 730 PM

    Game 3
    South Carolina (2-3) vs Saint Mary's (7-0) ESPNU 11 pm

    Game 4
    Boise Stat (8-1) vs Hawaii (6-2) ESPNU 1 am

    Some records will change with teams having games before then. What do you guys think as far as potential matchups? I'm guessing we'll face Oregon State 2nd round and handle them pretty easily. The championship game's assumption would be either Saint Mary's or Boise State. They play today so we'll get a better idea who is the better team. It was hard to judge Boise off playing Kentucky when they were struggling to shoot the ball. I like our chances of winning this tournament. Hopefully, we won't be too confident, stay focused based on location, and grab some much needed wins and move us up in the rankings.

    I look for Kane to continue with his great leadership on leading this team through the tourney. It should give us a good feel as to where they are at as a team in a tourney atmosphere. Bench guys may need some extra experience in the early game.

    It would be a huge disappointment to not make the championship matchup and at this point I expect us to win the whole thing.

    It's great for our program to be in a position to say that!

    I predict that I am going to get really tired of missing Cyclone basketball games because they keep getting broadcast on a channel I don't have.

    Wow. How is it that Akron has only played 4 games? I thought ISU was low at 8.

    If you have mediacom you can add the sports pack for like $4.95 a month extra. Also, its free the first 3 months so you could technically cancel it come March when you don't need it anymore. I got sick of not having ESPNU and decided to add the sports pack yesterday afternoon so I didn't have to watch on my computer. You get like 4 extra channels and that price is very cheap! Something to keep in mind.

    St. Mary's and Boise are good Top 75 teams. The rest of the teams are probably in the 100-150 range.

    Kenpom ratings:

    George Mason 135
    Oregon State 103
    Akron 92
    South Carolina 109
    Boise State 63
    Hawaii 128
    St Marys 37

    Actually a couple decent opportunities to beat quality opponents and nobody who is really all that bad.

    For reference UNI is 122 before their win vs #33 VCU

    How do you use first row sports, because I thought I was making an account on that website once but it turned out to be a porn site.

    First, get adblock. Next, you shouldn't need to make an account. Don't click on any pop-ups. Just click the numbered links until you find one that shows the game.

    You don't click on anything besides Link 1, Link 2, etc. and make sure you have adblock installed. Do not sign up for anything. Keep trying the different links until one works.

    I'm betting we play Akron and Boise State after George Mason.

    Tournement? Is this a British thread?
