The Wildcats will attempt to better their two previous showings in the tournament, in which they won one game and lost two to once-powerful Arkansas. The Razorbacks are back in the tournament again this year in the Midwest, and will play Kansas State. The West pairings are loaded with powerful teams. Should Weber get by Lamar, they will play potent Oregon State, which was ranked number one in the country at one point several weeks ago. Also playing in Ogden will be Clemson and Utah State, with the winner playing Brigham Young. It was hoped by locals that there would be a Weber State-BYU contest in the pairings. But due to unpredictable seeding of the teams, BYU drew a first round bye. For the two in-state powers to play, the Wildcats would have to get by Oregon State and BYU would have to beat the winner of Clemson-Utah State.

These Little is known at this point about Lamar, except that it is in Texas and had a 20-10 record during the regular season. But Oregon State is a formidable team.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
