They draw the weakest #1 seed. Watch out!March 17, 2016 at 1:09 am #26161
A coach smart enough to guide his team to the PAC 12 championship ought to be able to figure out this 1-3-1. That’s five straight wins… and they’re still 4 games under .500March 17, 2016 at 1:23 am #26162
It’s painful, but I/we have to congratulate The Carmody Crusaders. Quite a run. And even though its the dreaded PIG, this is the Patriot League’s fifth NCAA win to my knowledge. I believe the money is the same for them and the league, as if it were a first round game.
Oregon will kill the 1-3-1 with baseline drives and run outs, but hopefully its not an embarrassment like the Leopards last year.March 17, 2016 at 1:32 am #26163
I think I’d take HC and the points and the under.March 17, 2016 at 1:47 am #26164
I’m sure Bison will come to my rescue here but does a conference get any money for playing in a PIG?
If I look at this article correctly (from 2014)
Units are assigned based on participation at each level. There are 132 units up for grabs but to me at least, it appears to begin with the field of 64. If so, that win tonight by HC was very big for the PL.March 17, 2016 at 1:49 am #26165
BTW, it’s not the 1-3-1 that makes this defense so effective, it’s the match element that is so stifling. I rarely see any team that flashes up to the opponent as well as HC did in a zone situation. Just my opinion.March 17, 2016 at 12:15 pm #26166
I didn’t think HC was going to pull this one out. Their 2nd half turnovers were ridiculous. But somehow, they did. Champion is a gamer …March 19, 2016 at 4:48 am #26175
So much for the 1-3-1. Oregon had no trouble figuring that out. Wow.March 19, 2016 at 11:12 am #26176
A third consecutive Patriot League embarrassment. Just not equipped with enough athletes.March 19, 2016 at 12:44 pm #26177
1.)I think Lehigh figured out the 1-3-1 but unfortunately it took about 20 minutes of basketball to do it. Didn’t Lehigh score 40+ points in the 2nd half of their game.
2.)Due to the tournament format, The Patriot League did not send their best team to the NCAA Tournament in any of the last 3 years although American was the #2 seed in 2014.March 19, 2016 at 6:26 pm #26179
HC did win a NCAA tourney game….they represented the PL well. They were the only team in the field with a losing record. LU blew it n did the PL a diservice by not winning the title.March 19, 2016 at 6:29 pm #26180
That’s what they said about LU in 2012 jimk72. How did that work out for Duke? I think this yrs LU squad could of made some noise with KemptonMarch 19, 2016 at 10:54 pm #26184
I agree Lehigh blew it. As did Bucknell. And the league paid for it sending HC. But comparing pre-tournament sentiment of HC this year to Lehigh in 2012? I think most people in the know in 2012 thought Duke would win, but not in a blow out, particularly with the showing against Kansas two years previous. Its was obvious HC doesn’t have a C.J. Or a T.K. for that matter.
And I’m tired of hearing about HC and how we screwed up. Does anybody have any news on MH, CS2 or BA’s condition? We need spies on campus.March 20, 2016 at 3:49 pm #26194
This article from the B&W is a couple of weeks old now, Jim – but it gives the impression that all 3 are progressing. Not a lot of details, but as I read it, I gather that all 3 are expected to be available for summer workouts, and ready for next season.March 20, 2016 at 7:27 pm #26202
Sedore tore his acl? I didn’t know that that was the issue. Holba worries me. I mean I would hope he is ready to go. That whole injury went from day to day to may miss some time to setback to out for year. He still had a boot on last home games of the year Noticed it was off in playoffs
