I had a feeling the month of February would fly by once I learned that the abridged WIAC men’s basketball season would be just eight games and be wrapped up by the end of the month. And sure enough, here we are in the final week of the season.
The UWL men and women are taking on Platteville this Wednesday and Friday, and the men in particular will be facing a tough task of downing an 11th-ranked Pioneers team fresh off a two-game sweep of Whitewater. It should be a good playoff primer for the Eagles though, who are currently 5-1 after their win Friday against Stout.
The first round of postseason match ups are also set. The UWL men will be the one-seed in the West Division and face the East’s four-seed Stevens Point. Platteville is the other one-seed and gets a by to the semifinals.
