Re: 2017-2018 Predicting The A10 Conference

VCU may be losing Ahmed Mohammed, the kid who bruised us inside at the RC in February. Without him and Mo Allie Cox down low they'll have to rely on their guard play a lot more next season. May take a small step back.

Re: Mike Francesa really knows his college hoops!

Rhody is definitely an afterthought to the EEI Mid-day & Afternoon shows when they discuss the tournament. They seem to have a selective memory of Greater Boston-area college teams. Even PC doesn't get proper recognition (with Merloni being an PC alum!)
