May need a ruling from the commissioner on this one.  The pick came when the game was already at halftime, with Hamilton up 36-31.  (Personally, if magicman says he didn't see a score, I'd take his word for it.)

No ruling needed from the commish. I didn't see the score but I'm not taking the win.  I made my pick around 6:30 this afternoon and then went to my SUNYAC page to make all the predictions I do for every gameday. Today was a big gameday because it was first place Cortland (6-0) against my 2nd place Plattsburgh Cardinals (5-1) in Cortland. The Greek visited my SUNYAC page earlier in the day and made a comment about that game and wondered who I was going to pick and I got sidetracked making my comments there until 7:30 or so. Then a few minutes later I spotted my post for the League and saw that I never posted it. So, I posted it and then went to get a score and saw that Hamilton was ahead by a handful at the half. I was all over Hamilton because Gilmour, their best player is on my fantasy team, and Adam Stockwell their coach is a friend and from my hometown area. He used to be the Oswego State coach before he went to Hamilton, so I follow his team closely and always root for them.

But I was way too late to get credit for the game. If Hamilton was losing at the half that would be one thing, but you can't be late picking a team that was winning at the break and expect to get credit for it.  That's not right.  You takes your lumps and makes your picks earlier to avoid the loss. :D

Final:  Hamilton 76, Wesleyan 70.  Since joining the NESCAC, Hamilton has never had a winning conference record - gonna take some getting used to them being danged good!

That's not saying much, though. This is only the seventh season in which Hamilton has competed in the NESCAC since the league was formally organized in 1999. Hamilton competed in the Liberty League in men's basketball from 1994-95 through the 2010-11 season.

A lot of us who have followed D3 for many years remember very well when Hamilton was "danged good". Back in the '70s and '80s, Hamilton had one of the premier basketball programs in all of D3 men's basketball under head coach Tom Murphy. While observing the no-D3-tourney rule of the then-loosely-affiliated NESCAC prior to 1992-93, the Conts managed to win ten ECAC Upstate titles between '76 and '92. The 1990-91 Conts went 26-1 and finished first in the final AP poll at the end of February. (Eventual national champion UW-Platteville was #6, eventual national runner-up Franklin & Marshall was #9, national third-place Otterbein was #7, and national fourth-place Ramapo was #17.) It would've been interesting to see what they could've done in the tournament that year. The Conts still hold the record for the most NABC D3 All-Americans with 14. Murphy finished his career, which included two seasons at SUNYIT after he came out of retirement, with a 618-274 (.693) record, good for 15th all-time in D3 career wins and 37th all-time in D3 career winning percentage.

And magicman used his magic wand to conjure up a win for Macalester, becoming the only picker to do so!

Late response.  Yeah, I haven't been around quite as long as you (and wasn't aware of their one-time 'goodness'), but that is harkening ALMOST as far back as when Augustana was 'danged good' in football, or North Park was 'danged good'  in basketball (sorry 'bout that! ;D).  Lately, they've been pretty 'meh'.

Nobody's disputing that, Chuck. I'm simply informing you that Hamilton was a national power back in the day. More to the immediate subject, I'm pointing out that Hamilton hasn't really competed in the NESCAC for very long, so it's not as though the struggles of the Conts have assumed anything like epic proportions in that league.

Also, as far as North Park's being "danged good" in basketball being a subject so ancient that it needs to be studied by archaeologists:
