Blast Falls in Monterrey 15-13

March 28, 2008 |

When most of us were involved in UCLA Western Kentucky or Louisville Tennessee the Blast were in Mexico and after Denison Cabral tied the game with 1 minute remaining the Blast fell to a buzzer beater of sorts 15-13. This loss almost guarantees the Blast will not be able to reach one of the top two seeds but they are still solidly in 3rd position and would host a first round playoff game.

Milwaukee plays Detroit twice in the last four games so with a split between the two they almost assure themselves of one of the top 2 seeds. Their remaining schedule is below.

Baltimore Blast

It would be nice if that last game at 1st Mariner were for the 2nd or 1st spot in the playoffs but my hunch is that it will be meaningless for both teams from a seeding standpoint.

The real battle is for the 6th and final spot between Philadelphia and New Jersey.  Just one game separates the two headed into the final 3 games.

The Kixx are home against the Wave then they have two tough roadies against Monterrey and California.

New Jersey has Detroit on the road and then 2 home games vs. Baltimore and Monterrey.

New Jersey on paper has the easier road but Philadelphia has some experienced players who can really make a run at the 6th playoff position.

So it seems March Madness is not unique just to basketball.
