The AAC tournament begins on Tuesday, May 22nd. USF (Shane McClanahan) and Wichita State (Alec Bohm) are seeded 2nd and 7th respectively. They will face each other in a first round game Wednesday at 11:00 AM. It is a double elimination tournament. and (Hinkie, I just could not bring myself to deprive you of this forum for your draft observations. The AAC tournament will be at Spectrum Field May 22-27. I have tickets. Let me now if there is anyone to watch in addition to USF’s Shane McClanahan.)
This is a forum for draft discussion to keep it separate from other conversations.
