The Field is Set: The 2011 Buick Conference USA Tournament Matchups

Cusa_men_medium

Well, today turned out to be somewhat anticlimactic as UAB, Tulsa, UTEP, and Memphis all took care of business and secured first round bye's in the Conference USA Championship Tournament.  As soon as the official bracket, with game times, becomes available, I will link it here.  For now, here's a look at the way the bracket looks.  UTEP, the #3 seed, will play the winner of the Marshall and Houston game on Thursday at 5:30 MST.  

Wednesday, March 9

11:00 am:  #8  East Carolina Pirates vs. #9 Central Florida Knights

1:30 am:  #5 Southern Miss. Golden Eagles vs. #12 Tulane Green Wave

5:30 pm:  #6 Marshall Thundering Herd vs. #11 Houston Cougars

8:00 pm:   #7 SMU Mustangs vs. #10 Rice Owls

 

 Thursday March 10 (All Games on CBS College Sports)

11:00 am:  #1 UAB Blazers vs.  ECU/UCF Winner

1:30 am:  #4  Memphis Tigers vs. USM/Tulane Winner

5:30 pm:  #3  UTEP Miners vs. Marshall/Houston Winner

8:00 pm:  #2 Tulsa Golden Hurricane vs. SMU/Rice Winner

 

Friday, March 12 (CBS College Sports)

2:00 pm:  Highest remaining seed will play at 2

4:30 pm:  Other Semifinal

Check it out.  For UTEP to advance to the C-USA Championship, the Miners might have to beat Marshall and Tulsa.  That's obviously a tough draw as Marshall has talent and depth in the front court and Tulsa is playing great basketball right now.  That said, UAB might have to play a very tough UCF team and Memphis- who Mike Davis simply cannot beat as a head coach to make it there.  

Gentleman, it's March.
