So, usually the cut off for New England is about 5 or 6.  IF Boston can get into the New England rankings I think Dartmouth gets in, if Boston still fails to make the RR's I think Dartmouth will be out.  Also, depends on how far/if Dartmouth drops.  #2 (Bowdoin) and whoever loses the NESCAC finals between #1 (Amherst) and #3 (Tufts) is a lock for the tournament.  Roger Williams (#4) last week will be the 3rd team at the table for New England after those first 2, and will likely get off the table.  I doubt anyone jumps Dartmouth which means they should be the 4th team to the table.  I think they'll get in.

UMass Boston also now has a case to make to jump to #12 in the Northeast in the final regional rankings:

1.). Exceptionally high winning pct at 23-3 (.885)
2.). UMass- Boston's SOS has now improved to .507, according to unofficial d3hoops.com/PrestoSports calculations-- up from .494 in the Feb. 21 regional rankings.
3.). UMass-Boston now has 1 win vs a RRO, which would be UMass-Dartmouth.

If Augsbrug gets knocked off tomorrow that would almost certainly launch Bethel into the regional rankings. This would mean that Augsburg would be 5-5 vRRO. I don't know if that would change where you guys have them, but that is a lot of results. Is 4-3 even better than 5-5?

Wins: (at SJU (MIAC Semi-Final), vs. Wartburg (Las Vegas), at Bethel, vs. Loras, at St. Olaf)
Loses: (at SJU, vs. SJU, vs. Bethel (MIAC Championship), vs Bethel (Regular Season), vs St Olaf)

My numbers suggest that 5-5 is better.  Looking at past years' results, losses vRRO don't seem to hurt much, perhaps because they bolster perception of a tough schedule.

Based on a few games I have watched, I would say, the Greenville System looks more Nolan Richardson than David Arsenault.  But what do I know...

Before I agree/disagree, I'd like to hear your definition of the two...I am aware that Greenville has attempted, with great success, to copy Grinnell's way of doing things....But I'm curious as to how you would describe the differences....

DESERVING OF RECOGNITION

I'm sure it's happened before, but not too often...

In the SAA.... an 8 team Conference tourney.... The championship game matches #7 seed Hendrix (3-11, 7-20) vs #8 seed Berry (3-11, 10-17)

Berry beat top seed Centre and #5 seed Birmingham Southern, Hendrix beat #2 seed Sewanee, and #3 seed Oglethorpe....

I know you canít put them all in, but Kevin Kucera has meant an awful lot to the Bears this season.  Hate to see him on the second team.

The first team all Association is the top 7 players in the UAA as voted by the coaches, while the second team consists of the players ranked #8 to #14.   Players receiving votes but do not crack the top 14 get honorable mention.

I just wanted to let you know that my list is not ranked in exact order, but it is who I believe will be the players ranked in the 1-7 and 8-14 categories along with who I believe will also receive votes.

Are you sure your numbers are right? Express is in 2nd place? :o

I'll end up in 3rd unless Freund gets hurt, get in foul trouble, or doesn't play, so it's not as far fetched as it looks.
