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.
