Tourney Question

Recommended Posts

As most of you well know while I was planning on going to the tourney I am loath to spend another weekend in Bing and was considering staying in Ithaca instead. The 6 pm tip time has me reconsidering that position as it would be easier to stay near Bing. Just curious if there is an official Albany hotel in Bing or are people just sleeping all over town?


Also one of the posts on the AE board said the #1 seed gets to pick which time slot on Saturday they want to play-noon or 6 p.m. If that's true I'm curious why they would pick the 6 o'clock start as it gives less time between games on Saturday and Sunday should they advance. Could it have been so people can make the lax home opener at 1 and still make the tournament game?

I am not sure how the it was determined between day and evening session but they generally have the higher seeds play earlier in the session than the team they would meet the next day should they advance. Thus the 1-8/9 is played before the 4/5 in the evening session and the 2/7 is played before the 3/6 in the day session.


Although us at 6 means someone better stop by my seats before the B-ball game and tell me how much we beat Siena by. I will still be in Bingo for the whole tourny.

I know that everyone is impressed with Bingo's facilities, so I think they are happy there.... But I do not know about any contracts or obligations or even plans with other sites.


Finals always at highest seed.
