Big Monday was once a big thing for the Western Athletic Conference. You know, those late Monday tip-offs between Utah and BYU. Or San Diego State-BYU and so forth. Sellout crowds at the various arenas where the game was broadcast as part of ESPN’s Big Monday and Super Tuesday games.
Those were a blast. And in a wild twist of fate, the WAC gets a Big Monday once again.
Okay, the games won’t be broadcast on the ESPN family of networks like they were in the 1990’s, early 2000’s. But, it is a Big Monday nonetheless. At least for the Sam Houston Bearkats and the Seattle U Redhawks.
The Bearkats and the Redhawks are the lone unbeaten teams in the WAC. Sam Houston is 6-0. Seattle U is 5-0. And both have big time matchups on Big Monday.
Sam Houston is generating a lot of buzz early in 2022-23. The Bearkats have wins at Oklahoma and at Utah and just smoked Northern Illinois and South Dakota at the Fort Myers Tip-Off. Monday night at the Lawlor Center, the Bearkats have another opportunity to make a statement. Nevada has already beat three WAC schools in Utah Tech, GCU and UT Arlington. And it is another opportunity for a KenPom top-100 win for the Bearkats.
Seattle U is led by Cam Tyson who is one of the top scorers in the country. The Redhawks swept Portland State and Portland. But, Seattle U is looking to solidify its start when they take on Washington on Monday night.
