MVC: Welcome to St. Louis

By Jerry Palm - March 01, 2007

The games haven't started yet and already it's been an adventure.

The trip down from NW Indiana this morning was long stretches of calm punctuated by moments of terror in the form of thunderstorms, hail and tornado warnings. When the storms moved through, we had temperatures and wind speeds in the mid 60s, Since then, the temps have fallen, but the wind is still going strong. I simply can't do a thing with my hair.

Inside the arena, it was a fight to get an internet connection up from courtside. Apparently at the Scottrade Center, the internet works just fine in the media work room, but it's iffy in the actual arena. That could make blogging difficult.

Tonight's first game feature the #8 seed Evansville taking on #9 Drake, with the winner to face top seed SIU tomorrow afternoon.

Evansville's moment of glory this season came in a two game stretch in January when the Aces beat SIU and Missouri St in back to back games. Drake won the Iowa state championship this year, beating Iowa, Iowa St, and sweeping Northern Iowa.
