Big Sky Tournament Matchups Are Set

After Saturday's games, the Big Sky tournament matchups are officially set.

Condolences to Eastern Washington, who loses the tiebreaker for the final seed in the tournament to Portland State and Sacramento State. Their only solace is that they have no seniors on the roster, and they should be very good next season. Also, missing out were Idaho State, Montana State, and Southern Utah.

Here are the matchups:

(1) Weber State - bye

(2) North Dakota vs (7) Sacramento State
Regular season meetings: They split their two meetings, with each team winning on their home floor.

(3) Northern Arizona vs (6) Northern Colorado
Regular season meetings: UNC swept the season series, winning by 10 in Greeley and 15 in Flagstaff.

(4) Montana vs (5) Portland State
Regular season meetings: They split their season meetings... PSU won in 3 OT's in Portland, and the Grizzlies won in one OT in Missoula.

As a reminder, the semifinals get re-seeded, so Weber State will take on the lowest seeded winner, whoever that may be. If all the seeds hold, we would get treated to a Weber State/Montana semifinal, which would be fun!

Any early predictions? We will have much more analysis and a breakdown of all the matchups as the week goes on.
