Lots of chatter on the men’s side with only Williams remaining in the Big Dance.  Seems that with Three women’s teams remaining in the Big Dance sweet 16, why am I alone on this board….doesn’t matter.   Amherst will host the upper quad…with the top ranked WBB team and two Nescac teams…Tufts and Amherst.  Amherst will face the Jumbo’s for the third time!  Should be a great game….hope it will be another win for the “older” mascot.

Unfortunately, only 2 two women's teams from the NESCAC remain as Bates lost their second round game.  Amherst vs. Tufts 3 will be a great game.  We know Amherst is going to bring the heat on defense as usual.  Bates beat Amherst in the NESCAC finals by matching their intensity on defense (and they have a better offense).  Tufts is similar to Bates (I think Tufts was 1st in scoring in NESCAC, Bates was second) in that they would rather outscore their opponents.  Tufts seemed more committed to defense in their win versus a tough and talented DeSales team.  I'm predicting a close game that will go down to the wire, with the winner playing Trinity, TX who will upset #1 overall seed CNU for a trip to the final 4.

NESCAC NOSTRADAMUS…put your “handle” in all caps….you called the outcome of two games at Amherst tonight!   No.1 team lost to Trinity of Texas and Amherst beats Tufts for the 3rd time in a LOW scoring game!

True. The College's release cited family health issues as the reason for the departure.

Hope everything works out there.
