Got what we needed on day one.
Two scenarios get the Mavericks in the conference tourney.
1) Mavs sweep UTSA. That would put our WAC record at 9-12 and theirs at 8-13. With Utah State guaranteed 8th, that would put us in the top 6.
2) The Mavs win 2 of 3 and Louisiana Tech sweeps Seattle in Washington. That would put UTA's record 8-13 and Seattle's would be 8-13. By virtue of our 2-1 series win earlier in the year, UTA would get the better seeding.
Today, UTA won their first game 4-1 over San Antonio. They have a doubleheader tomorrow.
Also, in Seattle, Louisiana Tech won both games of the doubleheader over the Redhawks.
The only drawback for UTA was Texas State's two wins. It was a possibility that UTA could have tied them in the standings. However, seeing as how the Bobcats were facing last place Utah State, that wasn't likely. Also, they own the tiebreaker, so it wouldn't change the seedings at all. So in the end, all it would really affect is half a point in the Commish Cup standings.
Updated standings going into tomorrow:
New Mexico State 16-3 35-16
San Jose State 15-4 37-15
Texas State 10-10 16-35
Louisiana Tech 10-10 25-24
UTSA 8-11 25-23
Seattle U 8-12 20-32
UT Arlington 7-12 23-25
Utah State 4-16 10-43
