Ahh the sweet Mendoza line. It beckons with sweet siren song to those teams in the 9/12 Battle. There is a way up, and out of this funk, and it goes through that beautiful break-even Point.

Yesterday we lost another of “our own” as one team’s fortune at reaching that line became Charlotte fate of remaining ‘out looking in’ with just one win on the ledger.
Joining Charlotte on the ‘outs’ was Rice, who missed an opportunity to drop USM into the basement. Instead, the Golden Eagles now lead the charge from down under at 3-4.
LATech righted the ship, sort of, to 2-5 with a narrow home win against another unnamed squad who fell back to join Charlotte’s conquerors at .500
FIU put up a good fight but settled for the home loss against one of the “haves”, and dropped to 2-4 and tied idle UTSA & UTEP. All three of those tied teams are on 2-game losing streaks since their last trip to Mendoza.

So just remember, if you get there (or, if you’re reading this from there)... enjoy it while it lasts. Cause it’s a fine, fine, line.

If the tourney started today... 4-way tie at seeds 7-8-9-10. I’m not going to figure THAT tiebreaker... but those four would play each other in first round..

3-4 teams include:
FAU (returning to the thread)
UNT (welcome to the thread!)
FIU (win over Charlotte)
UTSA (win over UTEP)

LaTech’s right behind tied in the win column by beating Rice.
On the bubble is #12 UTEP 2-5
Out-looking-in is T-13 Rice and Charlotte (1-6)
(Rice with the honors of “first one out” due to tiebreaker over Charlotte of course)

Lost one team to Mendoza Saturday as someone swept their homestand located in the non-northern portion of that hard-to-spell State. Rice and UNT offer their congrats.

We tuned up for FAU on Saturday by beating FIU tonight. Looking for a FL sweep this week by Rice!

Me too! Gonna be all like #OwlCity
It should be an opportunity for FAU but Rice will meet the challenge.

We’ll have to play better than last night. Still too many turnovers but shot better from 3 & held on to win.
