  0 Derek Johnson | March 13th, 2018 | Big West, College - Men's Indoor, Conference Carolinas, EIVA, MIVA, MPSF, News

Before we get started with the fifth version of bracketology, here’s a reminder of how this year’s tournament works. With the addition of the Big West, the tournament will feature seven teams with five automatic bids and two at-large picks. A full article detailing it all can be seen here.
Note: All of the choices below for the at-larges are picked on what is currently happening as opposed to projectionA link to the updated conference tables can be seen here.


Big West: #1 Long Beach State (17-0, 2-0)

  • The 49ers have a meeting with UCSB among 2-0 Big West teams this week to likely decide next week’s team in this position.

Conference Carolinas: (RV) Barton (12-6, 9-0)

  • Barton didn’t play this week, and stays unbeaten atop the Conference Carolinas for the automatic bid.

EIVA: #16 George Mason (10-9, 6-0)

  • George Mason lost two matches this week in California, but they are still undefeated in EIVA action – and have a two-match lead in the loss column – to maintain this position.

MIVA: #6 Loyola Chicago (16-4, 6-1)

  • Loyola Chicago was upended in a split week, but neither came in MIVA play. That keeps them here, which they can secure with a win at Lewis ahead.

MPSF: #2 BYU (17-4, 7-0)

  • BYU didn’t add to its MPSF resume, but did earn three huge victories over a trio of top 15 opponents this past week – including at Hawaii. They’ve got a two-match lead in the loss column too in the MPSF.


#3 Hawaii (13-3, 1-1 Big West)

  • Hawaii went 2-1 for the week – not bad considering they saw three top 15 and two top 10 foes. They slide a spot in the rankings, but remain the top non-league leader for an easy choice here.

#4 UCLA Bruins (17-5, 5-2 MPSF)

  • UCLA jumps UC Irvine for this second spot of at-larges after the Anteaters lost and the Bruins won matches against Pepperdine and George Mason. They also downed UC Irvine twice, so they grab the final at-large bid.
