I don’t know anything about college basketball.
But I accept that fact now.
The turning point was hearing that Cal State Bakersfield finished in first place in the WAC this year. Cal State Bakersfield?!? The WAC?!?
A hurried online search and one glance at the conference standings made me realize that I am totally lost. Hell, even after looking at the WAC standings, I wasn’t sure what two or three of the schools were, much less where they were.
UTRGV? Grand Canyon? Chicago State? These sound like made-up colleges that play the protagonist’s team in a 1990s sports movie.
And, wait a second, how is Chicago State in the WAC, anyway?
You know what—don’t answer that.
