yep, Coach Palombo does make a difference. Quakers rarely beat themselves and seem to win most of the time when the talent of the opposition is as good or slightly better than what Guilford has. That is certainly a result of solid bench coaching and game control.
Thanks and I agree ... I think his teams are well coached and cohesive.

When I recapped the Bridgewater at Guilford men's basketball game on 14-Janurary, I forgot to mention that former Eagles HC Bill Leatherman was in attendance.  I do not know Coach Leatherman personally, but know what he meant to BC basketball and the ODAC.  He also recruited my nephew in his Senior High School season in 2003-2004, but my nephew chose to play for both Newberry and Brevard in DII.

Good luck the rest of the way. Does not appear HSC will be in the conversation yet again, unless they go on an unbelievable roll the remainder of the season. Not seen them play but they must be really struggling. I wish the level of play the odac b'ball was once known for would return. Don't know if that is possible but it sure was fun watching odac advance to final four; GC, VWC, RMC & HSC, RC back in the day.
Thanks, tfa2.  My nervousness in the next 10 games begins Wednesday night at E&H.  I also wish the ODAC could return to the upper echelon, but we do seem to be in the middle of the pack at the moment.  Other than 6-0 RMC and GC, I give E&H, VWC and perhaps LC a shot at this year's title.  Things go in cycles ... I think HSC will be back!  One thing in Guilford's favor ... Coach Palombo is in his 14th season at Guilford and he's had 2 national POY's, 2 trips to the Final Four and only one losing season ... makes recruiting easier.

As noted in the d3hoops.com roundup:

"Outside the Top 25, Randolph-Macon beat Roanoke 77-71 to stay perfect in ODAC play. The Yellowjackets [sic] hit 15 three-pointers with five from Sean Ryan and four from Grayson Midulla. Guilford is also undefeated in the ODAC after the Quakers pulled away from Bridgewater (Va.) 64-48. Because the ODAC plays an unbalanced schedule, Randolph-Macon and Guilford will only play once and not until February 11."

Checking the schedule, the Quakers play VWC once and RMC once, both in Greensboro, E&H home and away and LC once on the road.  Should be an interesting five weeks.

Final Guilford 64, Bridgewater 48 in Greensboro

After a sluggish start and an 11-24 deficit after 13 minutes, the Quaker pulled to 21-24 at the half and then built several 18-point second half leads en route to a 64-48 ODAC win over Bridgewater.  BC led by Saylor with 13 and GC led by Long with 23.  Guilford has won 8 in a row.

The Quakers (13-2, 6-0) travel to E&H on Jan. 18 while the Eagles (5-10, 2-4) host VWC.

Congratulations to Huntingdon and Coach Kimbrough on the Hawks win over intrastate rival BSC.  Nice.

Final:  Guilford 77, Randolph 60 in Lynchburg.

Shhh.  Guilford has quietly won 7 in a row and, at 12-2 (5-0 ODAC), is tied for first with RMC.

Three Quakers in double figures:  Curry (21), Thompson (19) and Reyer (10).  Combined, they were 21 of 29 from the field.  Randolph was led by Fields (14) and Jacoby (10).  In addition, Stephens had 9 points on 3 of 5 shooting for GC.  All told, these four Quakers put up 59 points on 24 of 34 shooting from the field ... good thing, since the rest of the team was 5 of 27.

Quakers host BC on Saturday and the WildCats (4-10, 1-4) travel to W&L.

New men's Top  25 is out ... two ODAC teams getting votes ... Guilford with 16 points and Lynchburg with 14.  I think RMC and VWC, et al, are good teams, but it's difficult to get votes when you have 5 and 4 losses, respectively.

Looks to me like it says Lycoming, not Lynchburg.
Oops.  Mea culpa.  You are correct.  +1

Nothing against the conference, but the top has come back to the middle and the middle hasn't risen. It was a number of great years, but things are bit a down for the conference currently.
No disagreement from me, Dave ... the ODAC is not currently one of the top DIII conferences.

If you are baffled, imagine how HSC fans feel. Been along time since the Tigers were even in the conversation, much less, competitive in the odac. Don't follow b'ball too closely, but it seems the Tigers are not very good once again.
As I said before, I think the HSC team has the makings of a very good team, great size, quickness, discipline, etc, etc.  However, for the next game, I hope they continue their current play.
Sounds like code for "Hampden-Sydney at Randolph-Macon on January 11".

Another solid effort by the Jackets, and HSC continues to baffle me.
Yeah, it looked early like HSC was going to win.

Final Guilford 75, Shenandoah 60 in Winchester

Not a great effort by the Quakers, but with the Hornets shooting so poorly in the first half (31-16 GC at the break), they didn't have to play particularly well.  A couple of early lead changes with SU holding their last lead by 1 point with 16:33 to go in the first half.  Guilford led by as many as 27 with the reserves getting lots of time late.  Three Quakers in double figures led by Thompson's 17.

Guilford (11-2, 4-0) visits Randolph in Lynchburg on Wednesday.  Shenandoah (5-8, 1-3) visits Bridgewater.

VWC played yesterday because of anticipated weather here in Hampton Roads, beating W&L in the Batten Center.... it's pretty SPORTY here right now!
Yeah, the Marlins hosted the Quakers yesterday in the women's game I cited.

Any ODAC postponements today due to weather.  At least one women's game was moved to last night instead of today.
