Re: NCAA Tournament: Dayton, Rhody & VCU

@res - not about Dayton, Rhody or VCU, but it looks like Bucknell represented themselves pretty well today.

Re: NCAA Tournament: Dayton, Rhody & VCU

Yeah, thanks, '84. WVU was #5 in kenpom earlier this week, and I thought that this was a very unfortunate draw, which of course it was. I really thought the Bison had a decent chance at a few #4 seeds, but when I sat down to watch the game today I felt like I was going to a funeral. I really expected a 20+ point loss.

The top 9 players in minutes played this year all are coming back, so next year should be interesting. Many a slip twixt the cup and the lip, and all that, but there's no reason this team can't be a top 50 next year; and potentially a mid-top 50. Coming out of the Patriot League, there's little or no chance of an at-large even if they are, though, so they'd better win the god damn conference championship again.

I sure wish Bona and Bucknell could get together for a game next year. They might both have a chance at picking up a top 50 win.

Re: NCAA Tournament: Dayton, Rhody & VCU

Yeah, but then the committee would stop looking at top 50 wins and go by something like enrollment.

And good luck to Dayton. Speaking of kenpom, Wichita State is #7 in kenpom.

VCU not playing well so far. St Mary's doing St Mary's things.

Re: NCAA Tournament: Dayton, Rhody & VCU

This reminds me of the GW vs. UNC-Wilmington game in the tourney about a decade ago (after GW went 16-0 in conference) when GW was a little off and UNC-W absolutely shot the lights out in the first half. GW came back from down 18 in the last 12 minutes in that game. VCU isn't quite the team that one was, but St. Mary's has miss more shots this half, even if open, right?

Re: NCAA Tournament: Dayton, Rhody & VCU

I'm sorry, I am rooting for VCU to win, but that's a chicken shit play by Lewis and an even worse call.

VCU is probably in the play-in game - or out - without the refs handing them back to back games vs. the Bonnies and GW.

That said, this isn't about VCU sucking, this is about them playing a team that is executing at an extremely high level and VCU being just a bit off their best in the face of it.

Still time to make a run, but they have to be more efficient on offense.

Re: NCAA Tournament: Dayton, Rhody & VCU

VCU on a nice run. Getting in transition. Need to keep up the D and execute when in the half court.

Continuing to remind me of that GW- UNC-Wilmington game. Let's hope it's the same outcome.

Sad we need excuses.

Re: NCAA Tournament: Dayton, Rhody & VCU

These refs just brutal on VCU.

St. Mary's broke a guy's nose I think with no call, they hit Lewis so hard they sent him to the locker room with no call, they hammer them inside on every possession with no call, and now on a rebound, they tackle a VCU player and the refs call it on VCU. Amazing.


Then again, what's that old basketball saying, "Live by the refs, die by the refs"

Re: NCAA Tournament: Dayton, Rhody & VCU

FQ, don't blame the refs. I'd agree it's been a little pro-SMC, but come on maybe the A10 is what everyone thinks it is.

And Pav is a fat fuck. Congrats on the air time though. Of course they couldn't miss your fat fucking frame if they tried. Alien, do they have salads in Richmond?

Pav is claiming on Twitter that the referees are racist and protecting the white players for SMC. What a clown. He's also dead.
