Some Contest Hints

March 6th, 2013

As we approach the end of the regular season, there is a site that predicts Conference Tournament Champions by providing each teams likelihood of getting into the Big Dance in one bid leagues, like the Big West. They use mathematical projections based upon several factors. For your enjoyment and to assist in playing our game, here is what they say as of today.

Believe it or not, the favorite is UC Irvine at 21%, followed by Pacific at 19%. Next up is probable regular season champ Long Beach at 16%, just 1 % ahead of Cal Poly. Surprisingly, Fullerton is next at 11%, ahead of Hawaii at 8% and Davis at 6%. Taking up the rear is Santa Barbara at 5%.

Now i guess things could change slightly depending on games this week, but dont expect it to change too much. If you are counting, these folks think Hawaii has the 6 th best chance of winning the Tournament ( not very encouraging, but that's why they play the games).

By the way, the same site picks seeding in the Big Dance. They have UC Irvine at either a 14 or 15, Hawaii a 16 ( possible play-in game if they make the Tournament?). Not much love anywhere for the Big West. Look forward to lots more entries in the contest. Check the last few blogs for the rules and dont forget Hoopstalk tonight as we review the last week of the regular season and look ahead to the league tournament

  1. Kahaluu Kid:

    Warriors win (1) One game and score a total of 132 points.

  2. H50Fan808:

    Hawaii will win one game and finish up with 72 points

  3. jeffp:

    again, if Hawaii wins one game, it will wind up playing 2 so the 72 points is not realistic H50F. Its the total amount of points for all the games Hawaii plays

  4. kswensel:

    Hawaii will win two games and 154 pts

  5. Ken K:

    Hawaii wins 2 games and 228 points.

  6. jeffp:

    kswensel. if hawaii wins two games, it will play three games so your point total is too low

  7. Colt fan:

    Hawaii will not win a game, with a point total of 58.

  8. kswensel:

    Sorry Jeff let me correct my prediction Hawaii two games 226 pts
