But Denver has clearly sent a message that they will be a tough out at home. Interesting to see what USD runs into at Macomb. But really only see potential losses for us in both USD games and the road game at Denver. So a win Sunday I think really puts us in the drivers seat for the regular season conference title.
    I think you are right, but the possibility for a tie exists,so tie breaker rules would come into play for determining the Conference Tournament seeding and for the regular season crown, unless one of the SD schools loses in an unexpected loss, this would be highly unlikely though.

    Sunday is huge.... we could be up 2 games with a win,sitting in the drivers seat as you have said, or let USD pull even with a loss by us (head to head loss). With a loss Sunday, we would still have to win against USD playing at Frost and win at Denver, to win the regular season, a loss to either gives USD the title, assuming USD wins out the rest of their schedule, but with a win Sunday, we'd only have to win one of those two games to at least tie with them, or win outright with winning both games. One things for sure, USD is in a hole and they desperately want to crawl out of it. They are in trouble and they know it. It's become a very interesting Conference season.

    The Denver men have a long ways to go to compete for the upper half of the conference. The NCAA's current NET rankings have them at #306, which is the lowest Summit men's team (Jacks are highest at 129).

    WIU(1-1) gets a road opportunity today in Tulsa. If they lose there after UND defeated ORU(1-1) at home, I will need to lower expectations for the Leathernecks. Meanwhile, UND is at Denver(2-1) which should be a pounding unless Turgeon does not have his team back to earth after upsetting Yotes. I do not see the Fighting Hawks(2-0) maintaining an upper half spot.

    Leathernecks give up 11 offensive boards, 13 turnovers, and only 22 fg attempts compared to ORU's 37 shots. ORU leads 35-30 at half.

    Leathernecks slip a tier as they give up 23 offensive boards and 23 turnovers giving Coach Cussen her 100th career victory.

    I saw the game, free courtesy ORU, W. Ill looked the better team early in the 4th, but then Oru got more scrappy and started fighting harder for the win, to their credit , they got their win, not the prettiest though.

    And WIU had a 26-13 foul advantage and still lost. Just canít see them consistently winning when they are getting killed on the glass game in and game out.

    UND won without Klabo and Morton, so have to say that UNO is quite a bit worse than I thought they would be.
