Owls win streak is stopped at 16 by Western Carolina. What a ride it has been!

If you have to lose one it better that it's a non-conference game, particularly at this time of year.

The Owls have locked in a spot in the A-Sun tourney and are currently 4th in the conference. Depending on the outcome of this weekend's games, I think the Owls could finish anywhere from 2nd place to 5th place in the conference.

If you find the A-Sun Conference Baseball Tourney Bracket confusing here is a simplified way of looking at it.

Rule 1 - if a team loses 2 games, that team is eliminated from the tournament
Rule 2 - if there are 2 undefeated teams left for the Championship, 1 game will be played to determine the champ (in this case the runner up would be eliminated with 1 loss, which is an exception to rule 1).

After Wednesday's play here are the standings.

Teams with 1 win and 0 losses
#1 FGCU
#3 KSU
#4 Lipscomb
#7 Stetson

Teams with 0 wins and 1 loss
#2 Mercer
#5 Jacksonville
#6 ETSU
#8 N. Florida

2 teams in the 0 win list will be eliminated on Thursday.

The Owls play Stetson Saturday at 10AM, if the Owls win they will advance to the championship round on Sunday.
If the Owls lose, the have only 1 loss so they will play Stetson again at 5 PM and the winner of that game will advance.

Stetson has been playing well, but with an extra day of rest, I predict the Owls will advance by winning the morning game.
