Game has been moved to Saturday at 1 PM. Apparently due to transportation issues (WIU not able to travel today).
That's good though, gives the guys a few days of practice to get things together after having over a week off.

Getting a college BB et al on a commercial flight within 24 hours is almost impossible.  20+ hour bus ride might get you to the game on time but useless as tits on a boar on the hardwood floor.

Spoke with a friend about this last night; can we please act like a DI school and charter a flight?

Western is on Spring Break this week.  The team may not have been in town when this game was arranged.

After travel snafus forced the Western Illinois vs. Texas-El Paso basketball game on Tuesday night to be postponed, the Leathernecks and Miners found a date and time that work, getting their opening round game of the Basketball Classic Tournament re-scheduled.

The first-round match between the two will now be played Saturday afternoon in El Paso at 2 PM.

Second round matchups are determined after the first round of play.

Freaking smorgasbord of things to watch today.  This, NCAA, WPBA Northern Lights 9 Ball, Julia Child marathon on PBS.  Never a dull moment.
But if we dont get a point on the board by 10 minute mark, I might give up on this one.

Kind of surprised to see Burrell playing.

Texas-El Paso won the game 80-54.

Western finishes the season 16-16.

Tamell Pearson led the Western scoring with 15 points.  Will Carius had 13.  Cameron Burrell had 10.

Western was 4 of 24 on three-pointers.

Today was the first career start for Freshman KJ Lee. He replaced Colton Sandage who has entered the transfer portal. 

Attendance at Texas-El Paso = 3,500
