Ronk was it CNU shot badly or Southern Virginia made them shoot badly.I honestly didnt see the game.Because great defense does that to a team or was it they where missing opened shots?thanks

 I would choose open vs contested of the 2 possibilities; Jess Foster usually only shoots open 3-pt shots and she missed her final 9 attempts after making 1 that I saw.
  CNU actually had a 14-pt lead 4 mins into the 2nd quarter.

I watched most of the second half.  I was pretty impressed with SVU's poise.  They seemed to always be pretty well positioned on defense and didn't get bothered much by the press when they had the ball.  CNU missed a lot of transition buckets they'd normally get, but I didn't see as many open shots for them as I'd expect.  SVU's a real team, for sure.  It might've been an upset, but it wasn't a fluke.

I thought the SVU defense has a lot to do with the poor shooting.  CNU got very few open shots, although they also missed a lot of transition layups.

A piece of advice for Alabama...maybe stop wondering what NFL team you could beat and just prepare to play against college teams. Pre-game Bama fans "Roll Tide" post-game Clemson fans "Sore Hide"

Suddenly the Notre Dame loss to Clemson doesn't look as bad.

I said this the night Clemson beat Notre Dame:  People were too busy burying Notre Dame and therefore were sleeping on Clemson... Dabo had those kids peaking at the right time and they kicked it into another gear for its last two games. 

It felt good to be right for once.

Jan. 18     Four games, all in conference action, on the slate for tonight.


New Paltz State  @  Fredonia State        6:00 PM

The Hawks are currently in a playoff position. Beating teams below them in the standings is paramount if they want to stay there. In sole possession of 6th place, at the moment, a loss tonight could drop them down to 8th. Fredonia needs a win for all of the same reasons. Currently in 8th place a win would put them in the 6th spot.

The oddsmakers have made the Hawks a 5 point road favorite in this one. Neither team has had much success over the past 5 years but New Paltz has won 6 of the past 10 matchups. I've seen both teams play and think the Hawks will win a close one. New Paltz 74 Fredonia 70. 


#15 Plattsburgh State  @  Oswego State        7:30 PM    The Featured Game of the Day

Another battle for the top spot with the winner taking over first place if only for a day. Oswego wants to keep that unblemished conference record intact, of course, as well as protect their home court. The Cardinals don't want to fall 2 games off the pace. Plattsburgh beat the Lakers 3 times last year which was a rarity as these teams usually take turns beating each other. Two years ago the Lakers took a pair from Plattsburgh by a total of 3 points. The series is equally as tight, with the Cardinals holding a slight 7-6 edge over the last 5 years. 

The oddsmakers have made Oswego a 4 point home favorite which seems logical based on their undefeated home record of 8-0 so far this year. I think the Cardinals could put an end to that streak and see a final score of 83-79 with Plattsburgh on top. 

Oneonta State  @  Buffalo State        7:30 PM

The best way to pick the winner of this game is to flip a coin. Even my crystal ball is to fogged up to see the outcome. Both teams need a win in the worst way. Both teams are coming off tough, last second losses. The Bengals have been the victims of more close games than anyone in the conference. They lost 3 games last week by a total of 8 points and their other 6 losses are by 7 points or less. I think they are the best 9 loss team in the country. The Red Dragons led Oswego for a large part of their game on Tuesday night only to come up short when the Lakers hit a 3 pointer at the buzzer.

Now the point spread favors the host Bengals by the slimmest of margins...that solitary single point...making this game the coin flip I suggested at the beginning. So that's what I did. Buffalo State called heads and won when George showed his face. The final score will be Buffalo State 87 Oneonta 84.   

      
Potsdam State  @  Cortland State        7:30 PM

The Bears sit all alone in the 5th place playoff position by a full 2 games. They haven't been that high for quite some time. They must be dizzy from the unaccustomed heights. No need to worry though, a visit to Cortland will usually bring you down to earth. In order for the Bears to truly take the next step they need to start winning against the perennial top 4 teams. They're still a few rungs of the ladder below those guys but an occasional upset is quite possible. Tough to do on the road, though, especially against Cortland.

These Red Dragons got handled pretty good by visiting Oswego last weekend so they won't want to lose a 2nd straight home game. They did get back into the win column when they traveled downstate to easily dispose of New Paltz on Tuesday. They've owned the Bears recently going 9-1 over the last 5 years, but that 1 loss was last year in Potsdam, not on their home court. Still it gives the Bears some hope, knowing they beat, basically, the same team that they will play tonight.

The oddsmakers have Cortland listed as a 10 point favorite, the Bears will be hard pressed to keep it closer, but I think they will, just not much closer.  Cortland wins this one by a final score of 81-73.

No, you've got it backwards. In the NCAA, tranferring from D3 to D1 (or to D2) requires you to sit out a year. That rule only holds true for the two money sports, football and men's basketball.

If you transfer from D1 to D3, you're immediately eligible, regardless of sport.

It's protection for D3 schools so that the scholie institutions can't easily wave their money around and poach the best D3 players.
