Seems to me that anyone could win the tournament. And the ODAC seems to have played it's way to a one bid conference.
Agree on the former and still hopeful the latter doesn't play out that way.

Final Guilford 63, Bridgewater 57 at BC

The Quakers played well enough to win on the road, but 17 of 29 FT shooting will not be good enough as the season progresses.  It may be enough against the #12 seed, but may be their Achilles heel later on.  Anyway, with an assist from LC and by virtue of their head-to-head win over RMC, Guilford garnered the #1 seed versus either #8 HSC or #9 SU.  Since VWC lost the tie-breaker with LC for the #4 seed, they are #5 and will host the Eagles on Monday night.

Great job by David Willson at E&H this year!  The Wasps will go into the tournament as the #2 or #3 seed.  It's worth noting that David played under Tony Shaver for 2 years at HSC (2001-2003) and worked with him for a year at William and Mary.
I have to agree ... he may be in the running for COY.

Final E&H 65, Guilford 60 in Greensboro

Key stats:  E&H 17 of 21 FTs, GC 11 of 22 FTs,  That was the difference.  E&H deserved the win.  Practice your FTs, Quakers.  It was hard to watch.

If R-MC wins at Lynchburg on Saturday then the Jackets are the #1 seed in the ODAC tournament. But a Jacket loss and a Guilford win at Bridgewater gives the Quakers the #1 seed. Did I get that right?
Yes, you are correct.

Guilford (13-2) took a 1/2 game lead in the ODAC with last night's win at Randolph.  LC (12-2) and EMU (12-3) right on their heels.  EMU played last night and LC tonight. Regular season ends on Saturday.

2016 preseason predictions had:

WL - 20th
GC - 35th
HSC - 55th  Then I quit looking.  That was enough to show me his predictions (at least the preseason) are worthless.

I don't know of too many preseason predictions that knew your top running back would not be returning.

I'm sure the ratings did not consider that.  But that does not explain WL or GC.
Well, there were other factors, of course, but GC lost their pre-season All-America running back for the season in the CUA game.  He had 600 yards for the season when hurt in the first quarter of game four.

ODAC tourney; watch out for GC, VWC, RMC, E&H & LC. Based on how the season has played out I don't see another team that can put together a 3/4 game run.

I do agree that GC can receive an at-large if the only game they lose is in the ODAC final & if the score is close. 4 points or less. Give'm hell and good luck, unless of course, GC runs into my Tigers !!!!

I think Guilford's chances of getting an at-large bid took a big hit with their loss to Roanoke. They don't have a lot of wiggle room and don't assume that because they were number one in the region they are safe. I can't tell you how many times regions like the Atlantic, East, and others have not gotten at-large bids at all. The South is not as strong as in the past and I don't think Guilford did themselves any favors. One more loss in the tournament puts them in a tough spot... we will know a lot more later this week.
I don't disagree, Dave.  That's why I used qualifying language such as "Guilford is perhaps the only team with an outside shot at getting an at-large berth if they do not win the tournament" in my earlier post.

So it looks like if the jackets win on saturday that they would lock up the #1 seed and win at a least share of the ODAC regular season title. I was a doubter for sure weeks ago when i suggested this team was a wreck. Very proud of them, seems like great bunch of guys and the coaches have step up there game as well. Any predictions for saturday? i hope my jackets can pull it out. Looks like Guilford is missing a player or two from the box scores. Is the Curry kid hurt or still on the team?
Curry and Reyer have both been hurt for several weeks, which hasn't helped.  Not sure when they'll be back.  They are on the bench for all games, but aren't dressed.  I actually thought they would be back by now.  Guilford can still be the #1 seed if they win over RMC and finish at least in a tie for losses with the Yellow Jackets.  E&H cannot be the #1 seed because the best they can do is 12-4 and the worst RMC can be is 12-4 ... and the Yellow Jackets hold the head-to-head tie-breaker.  The Wasps, however, can finish alone in 2nd if they win out and GC loses their last three.  I'm not sure what happens if GC and E&H both finish 12-4 ... for that to happen, they would be tied 1-1 head-to-head because E&H has to win out, which includes a game at GC.  Anyway, it's going to be interesting.
BTW, Curry played 10 minutes versus the Yellow Jackets in his first game back.  Reyer was still not dressed for the game.

Congrats on the victory over RMC and for the remainder of the season.

HSC continues to boggle the mind. Wins over RMC, GC and VWC; did not beat Randolph at home, gets blown out by E&H and lose to SU this past weekend. I guess they can beat or lose to any team in the ODAC. Far from being predictable. I have long given up on figuring this team out.
Thanks, tfa2.  GC played well versus RMC ... the Quakers seemed determined to erase the nightmare that happened at Roanoke. 

I've been following HSC and, as you stated, they are truly a mystery.  Against GC, RMC and VWC, they looked like world beaters ... against others, they looked like a very average team.  Hard to figure who's going to show up.  Anyway, I do not know who will win the ODAC tournament.  Honestly, I think about five or six teams have a shot if they get hot.  I do, however, stand by my earlier statement that Guilford is perhaps the only team with an outside shot at getting an at-large berth if they do not win the tournament.  Should be interesting.

I hope your Tigers can finish strong.

^^^ I don't think you interpreted it this way, but just to be clear, my observations about the number of GC FTs was not in any way meant to imply unbalanced officiating.
You're correct, y_jack_lok, I didn't interpret your post that way, but just wanted to give a firsthand report of what I saw today.  All good.

Trying to get a feel for the GC/R-MC game from the box score. Several thing stand out. R-MC hits only 6 of 28 3 point attempts. GC shoots 35 free throws and makes 26, which I assume means they got the ball inside a bunch to draw those fouls. R-MC takes 13 more total shots than GC, but 18 more threes. It would seem that after what hasanova said about GC's tough time making 3s against Roanoke the Quakers opted for a different game plan against the Jackets and it seems to have worked. Congrats to Guilford on the win.   
Guilford did push the ball inside a lot as they were 16-37 on 2-FGs and only 3-10 on 3-FGs.  I knew the big guys went to the line often, but was shocked when I saw the 26-35 stat in the boxscore.  I know that seems like a huge disparity, but I do think the game was correctly officiated.  Both teams gave their all, but it was not chippy - each squad definitely knew the importance of the game.  For what it's worth, both teams played all out and with good sportsmanship, but Guilford was the better team today.  Next week's games should be interesting.

Final Roanoke 72, Guilford 46 in Salem

An arctic chill blew over Guilford's shooting last night while the Maroons were as hot as the tropics.  At one point RC was 18 of 35 from three point range while GC was 0-14 - I think it ended 18/41 and 1/17 after the reserves finished the last 6 minutes.  It was ugly for the Quakers in a game that's difficult to explain.  We better find our mojo for Saturday versus RMC, but kudos to the Maroons.  Hard to believe RC's lost 9 if they can shoot like that.

BTW, without a doubt, Roanoke College now has the finest facility in the ODAC ... the Cregger Center is first class.

The loss to H-SC cost R-MC the one vote for Top 25 it had received for a couple of weeks.
I noticed that also.  With two perfect weeks since losing to HSC and multiple teams losing in the Top 25, Guilford cracked the poll at #22 with 105 points.  Hopefully, the Quakers can continue their stellar play.
