Halftime of women's semifinal, Concordia leads Sioux Falls 35-28. Probably helps MSU if Concordia wins.
Reminder: The men's game won't start until 8:30, no matter how soon the first game ends.
Winona State kicked Moorhead pretty good this afternoon, so winner of tonight's game will draw the Warrriors in the championship game tomorrow.
With the way this tournament has gone, Southwest could play its way into the top 8 in the region with a win tonight.
Looks like attendance will dip now that Sioux Falls is done playing tonight.
Big keys tonight. Adler hasn't shot very well lately, and if he's not scoring, he'll need to defend Zager. SW's Olson hasn't been much of a factor in the first 2 games vs. MSU. He'll need to limit Marei for SW to win.
Southwest will try to penetrate against MSU, pick up some fouls. MSU has some shot-blockers who might be effective off the ball.
Just need more comments from excited fans.
MSU starters: Marei, O'Brien, Monaghan, Adler, Wooten. That's 4 different states and one country.
outstanding. surrounding area needs more bars, restaurants
Adler hits 3, MSU needs him tonight
That would be unrealistic. MSU needs all 5 starters to contribute
Giddings aggressive early, three-point play puts SW ahead 5-4, 17:40
Joey Bartlett, of St. Peter, in game early, gets assist
Southwest goes to the bench, key time. Southwest starters are as good an any in the league, but depth is question.
MSU getting good shots but not converting. Southwest scrappy inside.
Not that I recall but I wasn't at the game in Marshall. He played well in the game at Mankato.
Already off, MSU timeout at 14:12, down 12-6
Not the start MSU was looking for, Southwest has a lot of energy.
Officials going to review last play to see who hit the ball out. First time I've seen replay used in the tournament.
My bad, officials were checking to see if Southwest basket was a 3, and it was.
