Re: Week #11 - Games of Interest

There has just been so much upheaval with the coaching positions. VCU probably underperforming too-- them and Davidson probably should have had better OOCs. Bonnies just are overhyped because of the Olean fervor. The only time the Bonnies really BEAT URI was when we went on the road to Olean the ye...
