Hello from a luxury courtside seat at the first game of the tournament. Two of our od friends, Sioux Falls and Grand View, are playing about how you'd expect for 8:30 a.m. ... sluggish and pretty sloppy. Sioux Falls led 16-8 early, but Grand View is up now 25-24. Today's most frequent officiating trend thus far: the carry. Keep that hand on top of the ball tonight, boys.
It's about 12 hours til tip off, so here are some previews of tonight's game.

Grand View is still a step ahead of Sioux Falls, 35-33 with 11:33 left. High scoring is not how one would describe this game.
For fans who made the trip, just a reminder to come to today's social in Bransn at the Hotel Grand Victorian at 4:30 p.m. The team will be there from 4 to 5 p.m. and the athletic department will have refreshments on hand.
If you're still in Mitchell, the Sherman Center will be showing the game tonight, with the doors opening at 9:30 p.m. for the 9:45 p.m. tip off.
Whatever you do, wear blue and white and think positive thoughts for our first National Tournament win since 1947. Go Tigers!
