Carrying over discussion from previous thread
Team leaves tonight on redeye to SFO (said earlier thought it was LAX). they then fly in morning to Sacramento and drive to Davis
Friday they will fly from Sacramento to John Wayne in Orange County. Sunday they drive to LAX and fly home.
Travel roster same as last time they went to mainland. Staying home are Sibley, Okino and Gong.
Anderson is already on the mainland and will meet up with team. She is doing Med School interviews.
As for the NIVC: was told this afternoon that UH will decline the bid. Several factors involved, including time away from school and cost. Travel cost maxed at $15,000 but Hawaii would spend more First round is Tues-Thurs Tough to get a team to Hawaii when the bids are announced Sunday night after the NCAA selection show.
If you’d like to read up on the NIVC, the link is below
>> Hawaii, finishing second in the Big West, would be an automatic berth in the NIVC.
Highlights from the site
>> A team that is offered an automatic berth by the NIVC shall be the team that is a.) the highest-finishing team in its conference’s regular-season standings, and b.) is then not selected for the NCAA Tournament
>> Factors that are not taken into consideration at any time during team selection are host bids, location of school, attendance history, ability to host, etc.
>> The NIVC will bracket similarly the NCAA tournament with an emphasis given to geographical pairings.
