CNU was simply dominant. Keep it rolling!!!

That was expected against BC...what wasn't expected, however, was a ranked Marymount losing at R-MC and a ranked Mary Washington losing at home to W&L.  Evidently, Marymount couldn't handle R-MC's big center, as she had 34 points...not sure what happened at Mary Washington, but that's a "not so good" loss for the Eagles.

Also 22 rebounds.  She's only a sophomore.  Wow.

A solid win for CNU after a sluggish start against their archrival...we'll see what the Lady Captains are made of on 12/20.

Everybody played, too - all the big injured players were back, at least in some form.

Yes, it was good to see Jess play twenty minutes....

Christopher Newport fans should check out Ryan's Around the Nation column, which features former Captain great Chelsie Schweers and other Division III women's players who played professionally.

Well done! An interesting topic for fans to read about even if none of their players were mentioned. I never really knew the scope of Women's professional hoops around the world.

The Lady Captains really took one on the chin against TM, then lost at Marymount on Saturday, but it's worth mentioning that they didn't have Porter this past weekend.  Honestly, I'm not surprised that they lost to the only good teams they've played, although I didn't expect TM to beat them by 30+...I saw the women play earlier against Wesley, who's not very good, and they just didn't look like themselves.  I'm not sure how to describe it, other than to say they're off, at least in my opinion...Byrd, Daguilh and Thomas come to mind...might even throw in Fancher.  As a team, they seem to be struggling...we all know what they're capable of, so I hope they can turn it around sooner than later.

It's weird how this happens sometimes.

Last year Texas-Tyler was in a very similar situation. They returned almost everyone from a team that made a Tournament run (though not as deep as CNU) and were ranked No. 3 in the preseason.

http://www.d3hoops.com/columns/around-the-region/south/2016-17/texas-tyler-new-heights

After a decent start, they had a miserable December, recovered enough to get a decent spot in the ASC tournament and then lost in the semis. They finished the season 20-7 and were never in the at-large bid conversation.

I don't think CNU falls that far but it's strange how things can change from one season to the next when the roster barely does.

I think one of the hardest things to do in any team sport is to try and duplicate or exceed the previous year's success when everyone's expecting it...half the battle is being mentally tough, focused and managing those expectations.  The Lady Captains will likely have another very good season, but, currently, I don't see 'em making another run to the Final Four.

CNU was up 20 to start the 4th... and barely held on. They are missing Porter with apparently a broken hand. Not sure about a return, but that is a significant difference.

A broken hand?  Wow...that's not good!
