    u00a0The NCAA should be ashamed of themselves for allowing UT-Tyler to be in the West Region Tournament. Regardless of your season record, if a team did not make it to the ASC Conference Finals they did not get a bid to play in the Regional Tournament. Tyler got knocked out in the 1st round by a 4th place teamu00a0from theu00a0ASC West in 2 games. Now all of a sudden the NCAA does an about face and let’s Tyler advance!!! Why even have a post seasen tournament??? This hase not been done in at least 5 years so why now??? UT Dallas who took 2nd in the Conference Finals should have received the bid not Tyler.
