–Oakland and Southern Utah, who concluded the regularseasons against one another on Feb. 26, will play again in the quarterfinals of the Summit League tournament. The Thunderbirds put up quite a fight in the second half, trading jumpers, dunks and physical fouls.

0 — The number of Division I teams that clinched a conference regular-season championship before Oakland. The Golden Grizzlies became the first D-I team to do so, capturing the title with a Feb. 17 victory over North Dakota State.

“I’d prefer not to play them again. They worry the hell out of me.” — Coach Greg Kampe, to the St. George (Utah) Daily Spectrum, on facing Southern Utah again in the Summit League tournament quarterfinals.
