America East Tourney.


Recommended Posts

Is it true that the first two rounds are weekday games? The schedule on the UA and America East website says the dates are Wednesday (March 2nd) and Monday (March 7th). If that is the case then it is one of the dumbest moves ever and another slap in the face of the fans of this conference. I, and many others who would want to attend from out of town, will not be able to attend either round and that is just effing DUMB!

That is total bulls**t! It was Saturday last year. If ESPN3 is a problem than just have it on Americaeast.tv.

 

The semis were Sunday afternoon last year..not Saturday. But yes..still much better than a Monday night.

 

 

Thanks for the correction. Either way it was on a weekend and my buddies and I were able to attend and be home at a normal time.

I mean the America East has to do what's best to finally get their golden child to the NCAA's right? The two waivers they granted them in '13 and '14 failed. They changed the tournament format last year and failed. Now they have to change the format again. The commissioners office is running out of ideas.

For a conference to promote a third party blog post like this on their Facebook just shows how lazy and amateurish they are...

They took down the link. What a bunch of hacks LOL.

To be honest though, without One Bid Wonders, that's the only blog that is covering the conference on a consistent basis. Obviously there are the papers that follow the individual schools, but nycbuckets is the only blog that takes a look at the whole conference.

As we get closer to the AE Tourney, don't forget to refresh yourself on the rules including the re-seeding.

 

"The tournament will also be re-seeded after the quarterfinal round, meaning that the highest remaining seed would host the lowest remaining seed in one semifinal game and the other two semifinalists playing in the other." http://collegebasketball.nbcsports.com/2013/10/03/america-east-announces-new-format-for-conference-tournament/

 

For example if in Quarterfinals if the 8 Seed beats the 1 Seed, then the 8 Seed plays the 2 Seed not the winner of the 4/5 game which is what occured pre 2015.
