Lady Mountain Lions to take on CSU-Pueblo in opening round of RMAC Shootout

By Nathan Gibson published February 26, 2012

The RMAC Athletic Directors met today in order to sort out the four team tie and proper placement of the #5-8 seeds in the RMAC Women's Basketball Tournament.  Given that the Colorado Christian, Colorado Mesa, Colorado Mines and UCCS women's basketball teams all finished the conference season with an 11-11 RMAC record, the RMAC Code for tiebreakers  was not adequate given that it only applies to two-way ties.  Fortunately, the conference office and the AD's resolved the unique four-way tie situation.  UCCS (now the #6 seed in the tournament) will be heading to Pueblo on Tuesday night to take on the Thuderwolves at 7:00 pm in Massari Arena.
