  Someone at the game said that one of the players came in injured.

I know our starting senior guard didn't play in the game.  She must be the one that was hurt.

What happens if McMurry beats Sul Ross, and HSU beats HPU?  Does McM win the tie breaker with HPU since they beat HSU twice and HPU split with HSU?

I think that is correct. Both MCM & HPU split with each other, split with CTX, then it goes to record vs. the #4 seed (HSU), which would put HPU in the #3 spot.

HSU 81 HPU 76!  Since McM just beat Sul Ross, the tournament seedings get very interesting...

Yeah. HPU went from 1 seed to 3 seed in one weekend. I wouldn't want to be UTD next weekend.

So if McMurry is the #2 seed, we play MC in the first round, which beat us in regular season; and HPU plays UTD, which beat them in the regular season.  And then, assuming McM manages to win, we get LC and HPU gets Concordia (assuming they win).  I think the tournament is going to be a real cat fight, since everyone is about evenly matched except maybe the #4 seeds (and even there I'd never trust HSU not to pull off another upset).

HSU's problem this year was that while they were pretty good, there were three great teams in the West this year (and I don't know if even CTX thought they were going to be that good).

CTX came our of nowhere and surprised everybody, I think.  Usually, they would be fighting UMHB for 4th place in the tournament, and usually just miss getting in by a game or so.  And now, this year, they're number 1 in the West!  The other surprise is UMHB, which wasn't even in contention this year.

So you're projecting what I suspect could be true, that HPU's seeming meltdown in Abilene is just temporary and they'll bounce back to bite the competition in the tournament...

Yeah, I think we just saw HPU at their absolute worst. That is not to take away from McMurry or Hardin-Simmons this past weekend, since they are very good teams themselves, but that was a performance more like something from TLU or UMHB.

I believe that HPU was missing their starting point guard last weekend.

Being a senior, I'll bet Jasmin Thomas (starting point guard) will be back in the line up at the tournament.  She's probably the quickest player on the team.  Loosing to HSU wasn't that bad for HPU.  It put them in the opposite bracket of LC.
