Hell, look at Drexel a year ago. They were 27-6 and didn't lose for 2+ months, but still NIT bound
Drexel was in a lower-rated conference. If they'd done that in the A10 this year, they get in.

I won't disagree that there's unfair bias (particularly in using SOS only, which ignores home-away and inherently favors those teams and conferences able to play lots of home games). But it's still possible for Charlotte this year. In fact, Charlotte regularly played their way into the tournament almost every year using conference play when they were still in the old CUSA, because they got opportunities to beat highly ranked teams in conference.

Re: 1/4 A-10 Games

that URI team that finished 23-9 had started 20-3 (with an RPI in the teens) and faded down the stretch. Started with a home loss to Richmond where the Spiders were just clutch in crunch time (Gonzalvez, Anderson) and URI missed a 3 to win. URI students all wore pink that game if I recall.

Was also before 4 unworthy teams started getting in the tournament.

That was the annual pink out game to raise money for breast cancer

Re: 1/4 A-10 Games

As a Charlotte fan, I'd like to point out that I'm sure this schedule wasn't put together with an at-large in mind. We're coming off of 2 bad years and are playing 8 or 9 freshman and sophomores. I think we're taking the winning breeds winning philosophy this year. If we're even in NCAA consideration, the seasons been a success and we've exceeded all expectations.

Next year when we move to CUSA, you will see a significantly tougher non-conf schedule due to the weaker conference schedule. Also, any team that schedules a non D1 regular season game should keep their mouth shut.

Re: 1/4 A-10 Games

GW playing GREAT D but the offense is really struggling badly against Georgia. First team to string some baskets together is likely to win.

Not sure why Larsen isn't in the game (and why we aren't feeding him the ball).

Re: 1/4 A-10 Games

7:43 to play, Georgia 37 GW 35.

GW's guards are 1-16 from the field, team is 0-8 from three. The D is strong and Georgia is begging for us to take this game from them, but we can't hit a damn shot.

Re: 1/4 A-10 Games

Colonials continue to play hard on defense but the offense is just BRUTAL.

Under 4:00, down 41-39 with Armwood going to the line to try to complete an And 1.

Re: 1/4 A-10 Games

GW misses a flurry of threes at the end, starts fouling. Close game will wind up not looking close.

Georgia wins 52-41, but game was much closer than that. GW goes 0-12 from three. Armwood has by FAR his worst game of the year, Kromah goes 0-5 and did nothing. Bynes was his usual awful self. The 4 guards combined to shoot 2-20.

Wasted a very strong game by Larsen and a fine defensive effort, especially by Garino.

Saint Louis leading 33-25 in a less than inspired first half.

Re: 1/4 A-10 Games

SLU better pick it up, they are getting outplayed. Obvious letdown game but they need to turn it on here to avoid a scary couple of minutes.
