Re: Week #3 - Games of Interest.

Tough day for the A10 so far. Other than us, UMass, GW and Saint Joes lost. Bonnie’s currently down one at half against Maryland, hopefully they can pick up the win. With the Bonnies game not yet completed, the A-10 slipped to below .500 tonight vs D1 teams. It is currently 31-34 with SBU trailing ...

Re: 11/24 | Virginia Cavaliers | 7:30PM (ESPNU)

Get it under ten and make it look more respectable. Rhody went to Brooklyn and played two top 25 teams without two starters. Going .500 there is an accomplishment considering the opposition and missing players. Get Cyril and EC healthy and back in the lineup for a strong rest of the season. Getting ...

Even with Langevine, URI will be an underdog. It might actually be better to have him sit out and get healthy. URI will have the NCAA consideration fact that they played the game without two starters. Play him (and possibly slow his return to good health) and lose - you gain nothing. Must approach t...

As expected the A10 struggling this early season There will be few opportunities for quality signature NCAA worthy wins in the A-10 this season. Most games will be potential landmines. Not looking at this time like the league will be sending three or more teams to the tournament as is its norm.

Not surprising given it is a football Sunday. Would not expect big crowds except for PC until the students return in January. Given what is likely to be a less than hoped for OOC mark, I think the magic 6k per game average might be a reach yet again.

We will get eaten up inside by Seton Hall. Brooklyn is looking like it may possibly be a winless trip. Would think best chance at a win would be to meet Vanderbilt and have everyone contribute big.

Really need to get by Holy Cross today and try to survive the injuries.
