Grizzlies' opponents decided

In lieu of the video I promised last night (it's been shot, but issues have arisen in loading to the blog), I offer this tidbit: Oakland, riding an eight-game winning streak, will take on Missouri Kansas City in the Summit League Tournament quarterfinals Saturday at 7 p.m.
The Grizzlies (23-8, 17-1) beat the Kangaroos twice during the regular season. This is the first time Oakland has entered the tourney as the No. 1 seed. It last won the tournament and advanced to the NCAA tournament in 2005, the season before current (redshirt) senior Derick Nelson joined the program.
The Golden Grizzlies set a school with 10 road wins, eight of which came in conference play, which should bode well for them, as they look to continue a record breaking season in Sioux Falls, S.D., next weekend.
After Saturday's Summit League wins record-clinching game was complete, it was learned that Nelson reaggravated a previously strained groin.
