Metro Centre Seating

[Metro Centre Seating ...gif 11kb]

Here is a simple seating plan of the Metro Centre. Use it to select your preferred locations before calling in to order tickets.

Some prefer watching basketball from the corners, like Sections 4 and 5.

Seating Rows:
Lower Bowl: A-S
Upper Bowl: A-V

Row V is quite high, yet still a good place to watch championship basketball in a full house.

Staying downtown?

For out-of-town fans going to Halifax, here is a little map that shows the locations of the major venues for the Tournament; the Metro Centre, and The Halifax Sheraton. It shows the location of downtown hotels near the Metro Centre. All are first-class.

[Hotel Map ...gif 11kb]

A secret to picking a good location is to study the pedways and tunnels, the coloured lines on the map. If the weather is bad, (it seldom is in Halifax) you will be mostly indoors, under cover.

You can stay at the Prince George, and be totally indoors for the three days of the tournament, by taking the tunnel to the World Trade Centre, then escalators up to the Metro Centre.

From hotels connected through Scotia Square you can now walk directly in to the World Trade Center and Metro Centre through a new tunnel under Duke Street, opened in 1996.

The passage from WTC to the Metro Centre is through an office corridor that may be shut down after hours. If it is closed, you can easily step outside and re-enter through a nearby door to continue on your way.

Don't ask about amenities. The hotels have their own, and the area is crammed with eating and drinking spots. Check out Argyle and Grafton Streets to begin.

A block left on Granville Street is Bill Robinson's NS Sport Heritage Museum. Worth a visit, if you want to get outside and get some fresh air. While there you can shoot some baskets, play a bit of one-on-one, or shoot some pucks at a Tony Esposito.

Wild Cards

The six conference champions are automatically invited to the Final Eight. Each conference decides its winner in its own way, often based on tradition and the geography of the conference.

This season the Atlantic conference is following the trend in some NCAA Div I conferences, like Missouri Valley, and is having all its teams participate in an 8-team single knockout tournament at Halifax Metro Centre. We are not sure of all the reasons, but in its old 6-team format it was not uncommon to see a #5 or #6 win the previous night come out and flatten the #1 or #2 seed after sharpening their shooting eye in the Metro Center. On the other hand, GPAC has reverted back to its 3-team format from its experiment last year when all four teams made the playoff.

Wild cards came about because of a need to make the national championship a fairer tournament. Using only the six conference winners creates an imbalanced draw. One conference champ may have to play 3 games to win the event. Another may reach the final with only a single victory. Adding two more teams creates a balanced, fair draw.

The last two teams accepted into the Final Eight are Wild Cards selected from the best of the remaining teams. This is done by a special CIAU committee who hold their final discussions and announce a decision on the Sunday evening prior to the Final Eight. Some conferences are still playing that afternoon, deciding their representative. The selection committee also seeds the teams into the championship draw.

Teams must actually apply to be considered as wild cards. A top team that does not formally apply will not be considered. This dates from the old days when a team might not be able to afford to travel to the championship. But, since the Final Eight found a permanent home in Halifax 15 years ago, the tournament has generated more than enough revenue to help deserving teams get there. This reminds one of the situation years ago when the NCAA actually had to force its top teams to play in its own championship. They did much better financially by going to the NIT in New York.

An obvious choice for a wildcard is a team that has been winning all season, has been high in the rankings, has led its league, but is unexpectedly upset in a sudden-death playoff game. But, if four such dominant teams are upset in conference playoffs, the committee has a bad problem.

Less common is for 6 season-long favorites to win their conference berths in the Final Eight. Then, the committee must decide between the next cluster of teams ranked 7, 8, 9, and 10.

Teams are chosen on merit. But where there is a toss-up the committee has the option to lean in the direction of selecting a wild card applicant from the home conference. It is felt this helps boost attendance and the revenue so necessary to maintaining the Final Eight as a prestige event.

Mark Cheers stats on the teams

From: Mark Cheers MarkC@cntc.com

1. Laurentian (24-4)
-- well if there's one week, you want to top the rankings, it's the last one, and that's what Laurentian did. Pre-season pick as the #4 team in Canada, they finally climbed to the top after beating Ottawa (12-19) to win the OUA East title. After winning the OUA East regular season by 6 wins, they avoided a final showdown with the only other winning team in the OUA East York (15-16), after they were upset. They finished off the season by beating OUA West champion Waterloo (18-12) at home for the Ontario crown, denied them last year by McMaster. Laurentian makes their second straight trip to the finals, after losing in the semi-finals last year.

They were 13-1 vs. their own conference, and 11-3 vs. others. Have gone 16-1 since January 3rd, when they lost to Western Ontario. vs. other teams in the tourney, they are 3-1. They beat Waterloo (18-12) at home, Bishop's (27-5) at home, and Brandon (16-7). Their only loss was to Bishop's (27-5) away. When held below 75 points, they are 2-4.

2. Bishop's (27-5)
- never ranked below 4th in the country all season, they were 2nd in the final pre-season rankings. For one week, January 27th, they were #1. They suffered a surprise loss to Laval (7-21) away in the QFSE finals, but that didn't drop them lower than 2nd in the Nationals seedings. An expected matchup with former QFSE favourite Concordia (17-14) did not materialize when Laval upset them. Bishop's have never made it to the semi-finals of the Nationals. This is their fourth trip overall.

They were 8-2 vs. their own conference, and 19-3 vs. others, as the OUA East interlocking conference was used again this year. They are 4-1 vs. other teams in the tournament. They started the season by beating Mac (23-4) in Hamilton, and followed with wins over Acadia (23-8) twice, and one over Laurentian (24-4) away. Their soul loss was to Laurentian away on January 31st. Only one loss to a team with a losing record (21-1), and that was Laval. Two of their 5 losses were by 1 point -- to Guelph (14-12), and Laval.

3. Victoria (26-8)
- it was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Ranked #1 for most of the season, they stumbled near the end, winning the Canada West regular season crown by one game over Victoria and Lethbridge. They had home court advantage through the playoffs, and had to go to game 3's in both rounds -- beating UBC (12-15) in the semi-finals, and then Alberta (22-10) in the finals. This is the same team that won 16 in a row from November to January. UVic won the Nationals last year, after not even making it in 1996. It was their first title since the famed 7 in a row in the 80's.

A very limited CIAU pre-season saw them go 3-1, with their sole loss going to Regina (23-13). They are 6-4 in their last 10 going into the Nationals. They are 6-3 vs. other competitors at the Nationals, but 8 of those games are against Alberta. In the other game, they beat Brandon (16-7) by 7 points.

4. McMaster (23-4)
-- oh how the mighty fell. As the #1 team in the country, they were one game away from the OUA West title, and a date with Laurentian. But a 4 point loss to Waterloo (18-12) in Waterloo took that away and plummeted them to 4th in the rankings, and a Nationals date with hometown Acadia. They were ranked #1 for 2 weeks all year, but never lower than 4th. They finished 1st in the OUA West in the regular season, beating Western by 1 win. After one trip to the finals in the 70's, and one in the 80's, Mac makes the trip for the 6th straight year. Mac have made the second most trips to the finals without winning the Gold (7). Laurentian have been 8 times and not yet won the Gold (or Silver). That doesn't include this year, of course.

Mac were 8-2 vs. other conferences, the losses going to Bishop's (27-5) at home, and Alberta (22-10) at McGill. Before the loss to Waterloo, they had won 20 of 21. Against other competitors, they are 2-3. The other games not mentioned were against Waterloo, when they were 2-1.

5. Acadia (23-8)
-- the regular season Atlantic winner, and the playoff Atlantic winner. No doubt Alberta were fans of theirs in the playoffs. Finished the regular season 16-4. Only one of their three playoff games was against a winning team (bt. UNB -- 18-12), as a few upsets happened. While early season SFX faltered, Acadia kept rolling in the big games.

2-3 vs. other conferences, as action was limited. A fine 21-5 vs. neighbouring teams. Only two games vs. other tourny invitees, and those were two losses to Bishop's (27-5). One of the more storied teams at the Nationals, Acadia have been at the tournament for a record 19 years (including this year) since 1963. They've won it 3 times (all before the 80's).

6. Brandon (16-7)
-- quietly going about their business, Brandon returns to the Nationals for yet another time. They clinched the regular season with a win over Regina (23-13), and they beat the same time in the finals by a total of 10 points in two games. Shawn Gray was 10th in the nation in scoring with an average of 20.9 per game. The only scorer in the top 10 that did not make a 3 point field goal. They left that to Maurice Carter who led the nation with a 56% connection rate (33/59).

They had a long climb uphill into the rankings, and made their first entry on February 17th. 2-4 in the preason, with losses to Guelph (14-12), Victoria (26-8), Lakehead (9-13), and Laurentian (24-4). They had two wins over Lethbridge (22-12) and Lakehead. A total of 0-2 vs. fellow participants, losing by 7 to UVic, and by 6 to Laurentian.

Brandon are second on the all-time list of winners at the Nationals, having won four Gold medals. They came consecutively between '87 and '89, and in 1996. They are making the trip for the 12th straight year, which is a current record.

7. Alberta (22-10)
-- like Mac, needed the back door to join the Elite 8. Did not look like they were going to make it after 5 straight losses. Granted those 5 in a row came against Victoria (26-8) and Lethbridge (22-12). But on November 22nd, Alberta stood at 4-6. Since then, they are 18-4. Alberta lost to UVic in the Canada West game 3 in Victoria, by a score of 76-62. They beat out Western for the final wild card spot.

They also had a limited CIAU pre-season, going 3-1, including a win over McMaster at the McGill tournament. Against other tournament opponents they are 4-5. 8 of the games were against Victoria.

After making it to the finals for 3 straight years, Alberta missed the '97 Nationals. They're tied for 4th with 2 Golds in basketball (with UBC).

8. Waterloo (18-12)
-- if Cinderella has a name in the CIAU, that name is Waterloo. Facing a win or out scenario, Waterloo took out Western (20-5) and McMaster (23-4) at home to win the automatic OUA West bid. Those wins dumped Western out of Nationals contention. Can the magic continue? They're 7-4 vs. other conferences, and 3-8 vs. teams with winning records. They're certainly the dark horse.

vs. other teams in contention, they are 1-3, 0-1 vs. Laurentian and 1-2 vs. McMaster. Waterloo return to the tournament for the first time since 1986.
