Long-time readers of the site (if you consider nine months a "long time") will recall our March campaign to send four mid-majors to the Sweet 16, how we implored Hoops Nation to officially adopt one by buying a logo t-shirt. We ended up having to adopt the old "wait 'til next year" approach, but two of our original Chosen Four resume acquaintances tonight.We know what Nevada's done so far - kill everything in their path on their two-week cross-country road trip. Pacific? They lost four starters and to Santa Clara
. But don't even think about counting UOP out - they're tapped into Cali's juco pipeline, and I'm certain that Christian Maraker
didn't bust his butt for three years just to have a whimpery senior season. Storylines? Yes! Pacific stung Nevada 72-69 in Reno last December, and the Pack has a 20-game losing streak at Pacific. Something doesn't necessarily have
to give, but will it?
