In this episode of the WAC Hoops Digest podcast, expansion is the big topic. Also on the agenda is the weekly power rankings and breaking down why I have the rankings the way I do.
I also tried a new video episode that is on our YouTube page so check that out. I would love to hear any feedback from fans on what I can do better or what they would like to see.
Expansion is happening in the WAC. On Thursday in Houston, Sam Houston State, Stephen F. Austin, Lamar and Abilene Christian will be announcing their intention to join the WAC beginning in the 2021-22 year. Southern Utah is expected to join the WAC as well but not until 2022-23.
Football is back in the WAC and basketball is just going to get better.
GCU sits atop the power rankings this week after going 2-0 at Tarleton State to open WAC play. Utah Valley comes in at two as they are also 2-0 after sweeping California Baptist.
All other WAC teams were either idle, on pause or played non-DI opponents. Watch out for UTRGV and Seattle in these power rankings. UTRGV got big man Jeff Otchere back from injury and Javon Levi is expected to take the floor this weekend for the first time in nearly a month.
