WESTERN WAITING: Both Western Illinois teams hit the final weekend of the Summit League season playing travel partner, IUPUI, on Saturday in Indianapolis to close the regular season.

The Leathernecks are pretty much locked into either the fifth or sixth seed for next weekend's Summit League tournament. Western (12-16, 7-10 entered Thursday's league games in seventh-place, a half-game behind Southern Utah and a game and a half in front of Missouri-Kansas City. If they can catch Southern Utah which has difficult games against Oakland and IPFW, WIU will get the fifth seed.

Neither the North Dakota State or South Dakota State programs are eligible to participate in the postseason tournament. Both schools are in the final year of their transition to full Division I status.

On the women's side, things are simpler.

A win over IUPUI locks the Westerwinds (14-14, 12-5) into the top seed of the tournament. SDSU has already won the regular-season title.

A Western loss on Saturday coupled with Oakland and/or Oral Roberts wins forces the Westerwinds to have to wait until Monday, when the rest of the league closes the season, to see when they will play in the tournament.

The Summit League championships start March 8 in Tulsa, Okla.

WIU vs. IUPUI--The Peoria Journal Star

6 p.m., The Jungle, Indianapolis

- Records: WIU 12-16, 7-10; IUPUI 23-6, 14-3

- Last meeting: IUPUI won 64-47 on Dec. 8, 2007 in Macomb.

- Series: IUPUI leads 20-7

- Radio: WJEQ-FM (102.7)

- Outlook: IUPUI is 10-0 against WIU at home and has won the past 19 meetings. If the Leathernecks can win this game, it would give them their most wins and league wins since the 1998-99 season. WIU's last road win came on Jan. 5 against UMKC, a span of six consecutive losses.

The Boubacar 2/23/2008 (BracketBusters Edition)--The Mid-Majority

And How 'Bout™ Oakland? IUPUI had been rolling along, but came down from the high of giving Oral Roberts its first Badlands Conference loss last weekend. But the Golden Grizzlies beat the Golden Jaguars 84-69 in a second-half pullaway that snapped IUPUI's seven-game win streak. The difference was the board battle -- IUPUI was mostly "pooee" on the glass with only 17 rebounds.

James Washington had 19 points for WIU (12-15,7-9), which was 21-of-63 from the field.

"We focused on their outside shooters and did a good job of limiting their solid looks at the basket, but we didn't guard the dribbler, and they were able to take it to the basket too easily," WIU coach Derek Thomas said.
