WAC Tournament Preview: Round One

The 2010 WAC Tournament is being held in Mesa, Ariz. at Hohokam Field, better known as the spring training facility of the Chicago Cubs.  This marks the first season since the tournament was reinstated in 2006 that it is being held at a neutral site.  After another competitive conference season, Fresno State emerged as the regular season champion.  It’s their fourth regular season title in five years with a conference record of 16-8.  New Mexico State finished in a tie for second place with Nevada at 14-9-1 but earned the 2-seed in the tournament by virtue of the Aggies’ head-to-head record of 2-1-1 against the Wolf Pack.  Hawai’i earned the 4-seed with a strong finish as they won six of their final eight conference games to finish 12-12 in league play.  Louisiana Tech is the 5-seed having lost three of their final four conference games to finish 11-13 and San Jose State is the 6-seed having lost three of their final four conference games to finish 9-15 after winning the regular season last year with a 15-7 record.  Sacramento State finished in seventh place and ends their conference season with a record of 7-17 in league play and 18-35-1 overall.
