One, a Big Sky bball dot com Xavier-Weber State preview of the game is here. And if you're a Wildcat fan — or at least rooting for WSU — consider this for a bit of hope: Eastern Washington beat Pepperdine on Wednesday in the CBI. Pepperdine beat St. Mary's twice during the regular season. St. Mary's beat Gonzaga twice during the regular season. Gonzaga handled Seton Hall on Thursday in the NCAA tournament. Seton Hall knocked off Xavier in the Big East postseason tournament.
So, in recap, ... EWU > Pepperdine > St. Mary's > Gonzaga > Seton Hall > Xavier. Based off those ridiculous factors, is it fair to think Weber State can pull off a shocking upset? After all, WSU > EWU ... right? On to the links ...
