The semifinals for the 2012 Summit League Tournament are set after the games on Sunday, and for the first time in a while the Oakland Golden Grizzlies will not be participating thanks to a last second rally by the Southern Utah Thunderbirds.
With wins by the top two seeds as well, this sets up some interesting upset opportunities for Monday's semifinal games. As per usual, both games will be at Sioux Falls Arena in South Dakota.
No. 1 Oral Roberts Golden Eagles vs. No. 4 Western Illinois Leathernecks 6 PM ET
No. 2 South Dakota State Jackrabbits vs. No. 6 Southern Utah Thunderbirds 8:30 PM ET
The winners of those games will go on to play the Summit League Championship on Tuesday at Sioux Falls Arena.
Oakland will feel they missed out on a big opportunity, having been in the NCAA Tournament two years in a row thanks to winning the Summit League tourney. It's up to the final four teams to decide who will represent the Summit in this season's big dance.
The full bracket for the tournament can be found here.
