News On The Horizon 2/25/2009

Good Morning Hoops Nation: February 25--The Mid-Majority

Conference Calls
Horizon League (begins Tue., Mar. 3): Two games remain in the HL, with slates on Thursday and Saturday. Butler is a game up at 13-3 and can clinch its second consecutive regular season championship (and the right to host the semifinals) with a home win against Youngstown State tomorrow. Green Bay, at 12-4, could possibly still win the No. 1 seed outright with two Butler losses and wins at Detroit and Wright State. If a tiebreaker at the top is necessary, it would be the record against the No. 3 seed, which looks like Cleveland State (11-5) at the moment. Green Bay split with the Vikings; Butler, which beat CSU earlier this year, ends the regular season on Saturday by hosting the return game. Either way, the top two seeds get two-round byes to the semifinals in Hoops Nation's strictest seed protection policy.
