Why Western Carolina Losing is Bad For the Big Sky

Last night, there was an epic title game in the SoCon, with Davidson outlasting Western Carolina 93-91 in double OT. Strangely enough, this is bad for the Big Sky.

Davidson moved to 25-7 on the year, and is currently being projected as a 14 seed. The Catamounts of Western Carolina, on the other hand, were 8-10 in the conference, and would have certainly received a lower seed. Simply put, Davidson is likely to be seeded above whoever wins the Big Sky, and Western Carolina would have been below them (assuming it was Montana or Weber State).

This is why Western Carolina losing is good for the overall excitement of the NCAA Tournament, but bad for the Big Sky. Of course, this opportunity will likely pop up all over the place this week in conference tournaments... I will do my best to keep track and see if there are any upsets that will help the Big Sky seed line.
