Re: Week #16 - Games of Interest

how about this plausible scenario... St. Bonnies wins out in the regular season (including a win at home to Davidson), but loses to Davidson in the A10 semis. For sake of argument, let's assume SBU is in. I'm thinking their RPI would still be top 30. Now it's URI vs Davidson in the finals. Having w...

Re: 2/23 | Dayton Flyers | 7PM (ESPN2)

This game will tell quite a bit about where this season is going. Were the last two games just a correction during a bull season or are we returning to the all too familiar swoon of the Baron era? I'm predicting the former because our coach is a motivator and not someone who blames players publicly...

Jeff still #3 but tonight the top guy had a bad game for Michigan getting 5 assists but 4 turnovers.
Just a few games remaining - hopefully Jeff can end up in the top spot by season's end.

I would share the same concerns as you, but MAL is most certainly a potential play. He has good measurables and good athleticism, but ultimately has not had a great feel for the game, and it doesn't help that he's playing behind Cartwright which means there is not a ton of minutes to play through t...
