The Road to El Paso: Conference USA Game Night Open Thread

Here is your C-USA Game Night Open Thread.  The stakes have never been higher for UTEP fans as the dust will finally settle on the C-USA Regular season tonight in Birmingham.  UTEP's three point win at Moody Coliseum today guarantees that the Miners can finish no worse than tied for second in the C-USA.  Here's the deal:

1)  If ECU beats UAB:   UTEP Will Be Co-Champions in the C-USA.  The Miners cannot earn the #1 seed but can get a share of the title.  

2)  If USM beats Tulsa:  UTEP will be the #2 seed in the C-USA Tournament.

3)  If Tulsa Beats USM:  UTEP will be the #3 seed in the C-USA Tournament.  Note that if UAB loses and Tulsa wins, the Hurricane can also earn a share of the C-USA Championship along with UTEP and UAB.  In that scenario, Tulsa would be the #1 seed, UAB 2nd, and UTEP the #3 seed in El Paso since TU would have a 2-1 record against the others.  USM would be 1-1 and UTEP would be 1-2.  

Tulane and Memphis are in a barn burner as we speak.  Donnie Jones is heading back to Marshall tonight in what should be a hostile, near sell-out environment.  Southern Miss vs. Tulsa and ECU at UAB both tip off at 6:00 pm MST.
