Hope the Miners do well. It'd be so cool to see them win a conference tournament.

The Miners have a good chance to win this tournament but it will be a rough road. Alum all over the USA will be cheering for a Miner victory!

Making plans to see the Miners Express bring home the next banner !!and proving that more of the Miners should be in the 1st team all C-USA list. Caracter 2nd team ? Stone not in ???.. happy to hear that Coach Barbee is wanted by big name schools,it was only a matter of time before this happened,so let's deal with it and move on.. Depaul might have to wait..

If Miners do not get to final.... They don't get in NCAA's. Need to play better than they are right now. Hope they play well. GO MINERS!

I think two wins will do it...gonna be hard to keep a 26-6 team at home (if they lose in the semi).

I think even one win gets us in. We may find out if that's true or not, unless we play some better ball.

The Memphis fans are really talking up a storm and everyone, ESPN included, seems to be picking Memphis to win the conference tourney.

C'mon Miners! Come out tough and shut em up!

There are a lot of potential interesting match-ups for the Miners in the NCAA tourney. Miners vs Lobos, Longhorns, Aggies ... but how about Miners vs Louisville? It would be fun to see Derrick send his old mates packing.

I predict Memphis will face UTEP in the final tournament game. Gonna be a barn-burner! The Tigers will bring all their best against the Miners. Our team had better be ready and go Miners!

That would be a helluva final. A barn-burner to say the least, which would draw some national attention.

On ESPN interview with RPI.com , UTEP does not get in if they don't win conf tourney or at least get to final. No respect...if they don't bring-it from here on out, they may be left out. They have the talent (3 on ESPN top 100 & that doesn't include Culpepper), the coaching, and a great bench to go deep into the Big Dance - they have to want it- BRING-it Miners!!!!

I can't believe some of the negativity that I am reading.For example, One individual says that if the Miners don't win their first game in tha C-USA tourney they will not be in the NCAA tourney.This is a team that won the regular season championship.Is 24-5..and is ranked # 21 in the country.How pessimistic can one get?..Your glass is half-empty.

It's actually perfect, if you look at how sports has played out the last couple of years. They do have some issues, but I think scraping by these last couple of wins will help them in the tourney.

My wishes for the next two days: 1. A UCF upset over SMU; 2. UTEPs bench can carry to load in their first round game - let the starters go into the semis with a full tank.
