Pete Hamilton has done a great job. Great guy as well. Got to give him and Randolph credit for beating my Marlins. Didnít see the game back was very shocked. Seemed like they may have turned a corner only to have their season end this early. Welp. More time to get back in the gym as individuals and get VWU back to where we used to be. Still have faith in Macedo.
I don't think anyone outside of perhaps the Wildcats saw this coming.  It would seem almost all pundits were giving the Marlins an almost automatic pass to the quarterfinals.  VW is a fine program ... we all know they will bounce back with a vengeance!

I'm looking forward to being in Salem on Friday to watch the Lynchburg/Roanoke game at 6 pm before the Generals and Quakers tip off around 8 pm.  Hope to see other posters and friends at the games.

Randolph upsets VWU 57-54. GC over SU, EMU over BC, LC over HSC.

So RMC will play EMU and will need to do better against that zone than they did in Ashland.

E&H plays Randolph. Roanoke plays LC. W&L plays GC.
As others have said, the RaC win AT VW is the shocker of the night ... especially given they lost to the Marlins at home by 23 just 3 days ago.  You have to love tournament hoops!

Congratulations to the other winners: EMU, LC and GC.  Speaking of the Quakers, they also had to play the same team 3 days apart, but both times in Greensboro.  To their credit, the SU Hornets closed the gap from 32 to 11, but still dropped both.

Returning to the Randolph Wildcats, I guess former RaC player and GC Assistant Pete Hamilton is also a big proponent of playing your best basketball this time of year.

Congratulations to Coach LeRose at W&L.  It will be interesting to see if the style of play will change in Lexington ... I suspect it will not for now.  As others have said, I predict the Generals will not miss a beat.

Congratulations to the Maroons ... an 18-7 (11-5) finish after starting 9-7 (2-5) is stellar.  Roanoke has won 9 straight since losing to Guilford on Jan. 18. 

Does anyone remember such a logjam at the top of the ODAC standings?  With 6 teams between 10-6 and 12-4, I hesitate to handicap the odds of who will win.  Heck, I also think 8-8 LC and BC have a shot.  Looking forward to the tournament!

The Quakers dominated start to finish today versus Shenandoah, winning 89-57.  At one time, the lead was up to 38.  Four players in double figures led by Carson Long's 16 ... the Junior went over 1000 points today ... the 33rd Quaker to do so.

In one of those scheduling/seeding flukes, the SU Hornets have to travel back to Greensboro on Tuesday for a #6/#11 first round game.

I suspect the ODAC might be a one-bid conference this season.

You would know better than me, but an RMC team that runs the table before losing in the ODAC finals would be a reasonable at large. They sit second in the latest South Regional Rankings, would likely end up something like 4-4 or so in RRO, and a pretty decent SOS. Not a slam dunk, but I suspect they'd be in the running.
I'm not at all sure if I know better than you, but I do agree that RMC is probably the only ODAC team with a shot at an at-large bid.  The Yellow Jackets are 18-6, and assuming they win tomorrow, would be 19-6 (W&L has a lot to play for and it's in Lexington, so this game is no sure thing).  As the #1 seed, they could win two more games before the championship which could put them at 21-6.  A loss tomorrow or in the tournament would be their 7th, which puts them in bubble territory ... not unprecedented, but not a lock by any means.  I also think the 20-win plateau is key.

Emory & Henry is also 18-6, but I won't be surprised at this point if the Wasps lose two more.  A five game losing streak does not bode well going into the postseason.

RC with the big win tonight against Randolph. It was a close game in the first half, but RC was able to pull away in the second half. In other ODAC news:

W and L wins at E and H 92-87
Guilford loses at Lynchburg 92-89
VWU squeaks by BC 60-58
RMC wins at HSC 67-56
SU gets stomped on against EMU 93-121 :o

RC plays at HSC on Saturday and if they can win they might be able to sneak into the 2nd place in the ODAC (if E and H loses at EMU). That sounds absolutely crazy if you remember 3 weeks ago they were in 6th place, gotta love the ODAC.
GC/LC score was 79-73.

in regulation?!

It's really hard to lose by 28 in overtime.
So true.  Even if 28-0 in 5 minutes, that's the equivalent of a 224 point full game pace.

^^^ If E&H, Roanoke, VW and W&L all lose on Saturday and GC wins (interesting that none of those teams are playjng each other) there will be five teams at 10-6. I don't envy the conference having to figure out which three of those are the 2-4 teams -- and in what order.
I haven't dug into all the tiebreaker scenarios, but GC was 1-1 against E&H, W&L and VW.  Surprisingly, GC has an edge over RoC since the Quakers won the lone game between the two.

Final score at Lynchburg:  GC 28 PF, LC 17 PF

I could tell very early how this game was going to be called ...  and usually by the trailing official overruling the guy who was looking right at the play.  LC played well, but not that well.  I bet Marcus Curry was not on the floor 15 minutes tonight before getting his 2nd offensive foul and 5th foul overall.  Two other starters fouled out.  In 40+ years of watching GC basketball, I don't think I have ever seen three foul out and two others on the court with four.  C'est la vie.

I can't tell you how many times over the years I've seen an official with what seems to be the best view not make a call and an official far removed from the play blow a whistle. It's always left me scratching my head. Sorry it was that kind of game for the Quakers.
Yeah, me too.  It was my first visit to Turner Gymnasium.  GC shot 11/13 on FTs and LC was 26/35 and it was still a 6-point game.  A buzzer beating three by LC to end the first half was another killer, but that's the way it goes.  GC still has a chance to get a top 4 spot, but I predict we will now finish in a 5 or 6 role.

W&L's win at Shenandoah last night guarantees the Generals their first winning conference record since '07-'08 and only the second winning conference record in 30 years. With 3 very difficult games to go, at Roanoke, at E&H and hosting RMC, W&L will likely be well aware of what they face when the ODAC tournament begins.
Congratulations to the Generals!

It's been a long time - but I'm back.

So far the Gennies have exceeded expectations. They have two tough games and then the tourney. My hope is that they will continue to exceed expectations. There's a new sheriff in Lexington ;D

Now if only we could get the announcement of the new sheriff for the football team.
I vote for an experimental season of self-directed and consensus management by the players.

VWU knocked off both RMC and GC this week. Has the light come on for the Marlins? We'll see. With 2 winnable ball games left vs Bridgewater and Randolph, the Marlins could potentially end the season with 4 straight wins, and with wins in 7 out of their final 8 games. Macedo is a big proponent of playing your best basketball in this time of year, so the Marlins could be a team that no one will want to play in the ODAC tournament. Looks like Roanoke will have that distinction as well, winning 7 straight games.

Also, I see that EMU has named Melvin Felix as their head coach going forward. Congrats to him! I've had the pleasure of meeting him and speaking with him over this last year or so as he has been recruiting a couple of the players at the high school I coach at. EMU is getting a fine young coach
Is there a coach who isn't a big proponent of this?
