The peak of the season is officially here. I definitely have mixed emotions seeing it come. Having a couple of very young kids and a wife who often works evenings I'm stuck in the house all winter and get to watch a ton of Summit basketball - probably six or eight games a week. I won't know what to do with myself next week!
Though you guys talked me into going today's afternoon sessions (and I'm glad you did), I'm expecting a couple of 15+ point snoozers. NDSU did find a way to rise up and beat USD earlier, but they seemed to run out of gas a month ago. Denver is Denver.
Unless the sudden weight of being the top-seed in a do-or-die tournament gets them, I expect the USD men will take care of business without too much drama tonight. Covington is just the type of guy who can rise up and orchestrate an upset, however. I hope he has the best game of his life.
NDSU struggled with IUPUI both times this year and they definitely coasted towards the SLT. I'm not putting too much stock in that. Richman knows the style of play that wins in these pressure games. Werner will be on a mission. IUPUI will have to play one hell of a game to get the win.
I wish our teams had earned the opportunity to play today but as a fan it's actually nice to get to attend for a full day before they play.
