Lethbridge at Alberta 9 PM ET to decide final Canada West seeding

It is very simple in Canada West – the easiest interpretation of Martin Timmerman’s tool ever.  A victory tonight at home by Alberta Golden Bears against Lethbridge will clinch the #1 seed for the Bears and home games throughout the Canada West playoffs including hosting the CW Final 4.  A loss tonight and Alberta gets #3 seed.  Note that Alberta won comfortably yesterday afternoon 97-86

Clearly there are implications with both scenarios:  an Alberta win gives them home court if they make the Final 4, however it sets up a semi-final match-up with UBC (19-1); recall Bears lost twice to the Thunderbirds at War Memorial Gym in January.  A loss and #3 seed results in a potential semi-final game against Saskatchewan Huskies on a neutral court in Calgary (if Calgary is upset in the quarter-finals, Saskatchewan hosts) and Alberta probably gets UBC anyway.  The action begins at 9 PM ET and visit Martin’s site to do your own what if.
