Coppin State in Play-In
The first half of the Tuesday night opening round game is known. The committee has selected Coppin State as one of the two participants. The Committee chairman said they are awaiting the result of the Southland championship before announcing the other participant. I think this was there last ditch effort to keep two Historically Black Schools out of the Play-In. But it appears that Texas-Arlington will win the Southland - although NW State has cut it to two. I think if NW State wins, they play in the Tuesday night game. If not then Mississippi Valley State does. However, it would still be possible for the Mount to be the second team in that game.
