The GLVC Tournament and beyond

With everybody beating everybody in GLVC men’s basketball so far, the GLVC Tournament scheduled for the Ford Center in March may be a toss-up, which would make for a much more interesting postseason. The only problem with that is that a school from the other big conference in the Midwest Region, the GLIAC, will probably end up hosting the Midwest Regional. A glance at the standings in the GLIAC (it stands for Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference) shows that’s a distinct possibility. As of Friday, Wayne State is on top at 11-1, followed by Grand Valley State at 11-2. The next closest teams are Findlay and Michigan Tech, both at 9-4. Wayne State is near Detroit. Grand Valley State is located on the far western edge of Michigan. Both are long road trips for USI, although not nearly as bad as driving to the Upper Peninsula where Michigan Tech (9-4) and Northern Michigan (3-10) are located. Knowing what the people who put out the region rankings are like (the first rankings don’t come out until Feb. 20, by the way) the GLVC probably isn’t going to get the No. 1 seed in the end, unless there is a sudden reversal of fortune in the GLIAC.
