Dreadful shooting night for VWU vs Averett -- 7 of 27 on 3 pointers, 11 of 32 on 2s, 16 of 26 free throws and lose 63-59. The Marlins controlled the boards 51-32 (23 offensive boards) but missed countless put backs. In spite of that they were close to coming back late in the game. So Averett is now 5-0 vs the ODAC. They are a good team and played well against a tough VWU defense. If the Marlins shoot better they probably win.

GC beats Methodist and W&L beats William Peace in non-conference games. In the battle of the RCs, Roanoke beats Randolph. Earlier in the week SU lost at home to Washington College and E&H beat EMU.
This is why VW is not yet in the Top 25.

Quakers improve to 4-3 with a 79-62 win over Methodist (now 4-2).  GC led 40-26 at the half, but MU cut it to 5 at 52-47.  Inexplicably, MU coach David Smith allowed the Quakers to go on a 19-0 run without calling one of his 6 available timeouts.  At 71-47, it was over.  Four Quakers in double figures:  Thompson 18, Curry 16, Long 16 and Gregory 12.  GC shot 33/59, 6/13 threes and 7/10 FTs and MU 22/55, 5/20 threes and 13/16 FTs.  GC eked out a 31-30 rebounding edge over the Monarchs.

The DIII nation is watching how Mount Union handles this.  Personally, and I know I am old school, he should never have started the last two weeks.  Life before football.  Most people don't grow up unless there are consequences for their actions ... and inactions, as the case may be.

I agree 100%. I think more Mount fans agree with this than will admit it as well.

BTW - from a pure football stance. IF Fulford was benched against WL and Poorman had played. Then Poorman would have had a playoff start and recent meaningful snaps. Plus (No Offense to WL) I think Mount still beats WL with Poorman (they could have done the right thing AND prepared the back-up at same time). Fast forward - IF Fulford is gone (and I think he will be) then Poorman gets the start and has not taken a meaningful snap since...what October of last year?
desertraider, I agree that Mount Union probably tops W&L with their back-up quarterback in the first round (we ODAC fans realistically know where we stand on the national stage).  As you correctly stated, Poorman would have gotten some snaps earlier in the playoffs.  If he goes in now (and he should, in my opinion), he will be facing heightened competition during his learning curve.  A potential football win is not worth UMU's academic reputation ...  and that reputation has taken a hit the last few weeks.

hasa

Did you see HSC play over the weekend ? If so, tell me they are not as bad as the results indicate they might be.

Good luck to your Quakers. Sounds like they are off and running.

Hopefully the ODAC winner will have a successful run deep into the tourney this year.
Hey, tfa2.  Yes, I did see the Tigers twice:  a 20-point loss to Huntingdon and a 3-point win over Concordia (TX).  I also know HSC lost an earlier game to Averett, 80-66.  The Tigers are young ... many times I saw HSC with 3 first year players on the court, which led me to believe the coach is playing more for the future than this season, but he knows his personnel and I don't.  Although the Tigers have some height, I think they will be outrebounded and lose the inside game to really physical teams.  I think 12-15 wins is a nice goal for the youthful Tigers and they will mature in the second half of the season ... even at the DIII level, it is a big jump from HS to college.

The 2-1 Guilford Quakers welcome the 1-1 Averett Cougars to Ragan-Brown tonight.  AU beat HSC 80-66 last week and got thumped by Concordia TX 91-68 on Sunday.

Congratulations to HC Caleb Kimbrough and the Huntingdon Hawks on their 2-1 start, which matches last season's win total.  I got a chance to watch the Hawks play twice in Greensboro where they soundly beat Hampden-Sydney 80-60 and were slightly outmanned by Guilford 90-63.  Things are looking up in Montgomery.

If one can be impressed with a loss, this game was it.  W&L football represented the ODAC and its school well today.  Kudos.

The two day tip-off classic at Guilford ended with all four teams at 1-1.  Consider these scores:

Huntingdon 80, Hampden-Sydney 60
Concordia 68, Guilford 67
Hampden-Sydney 83, Concordia 80
Guilford 90, Huntingdon 63

Honestly, over a prolonged season in a league, I think I would rank them GC-CTX-HSC-HC, but the scores over two days leave you shaking your head.  I will say HSC handled the CTX press better than GC did.  BTW, Quaker Carson Long scored 36 tonight vs HC.

Thanks, Hasanova. Your assessment makes sense re: the relative strengths of the 2 squads.  Thanks for putting it into perspective.
You're welcome, Ralph.  The two days ended with all four teams at 1-1.  Consider these four scores:

Huntingdon 80, Hampden-Sydney 60
Concordia 68, Guilford 67
Hampden-Sydney 83, Concordia 80
Guilford 90, Huntingdon 63

I'm sorry. But if you are dumb or immature enough to put a FELONY warrant out of sight out of mind you simply aren't ready for college. Maybe you will grow into your responsibilities and be ready for college later, but putting something that important into the I can't be bothered category is an indicator that your life still requires significant  adult supervision.

And that has nothing to do with whether he is guilty or not.
Dumb and immature are traits all young men share, including me decades ago ... but never once did my immaturity cross over into anything requiring an arrest, a felony warrant and shirking my responsibility.  Yes, I believe in "innocent until proven guilty", but I also believe in life before football and the integrity of a 171 year old institution of higher learning.  The DIII nation is watching ... Fulford should be asked to focus solely on school and this legal matter first and, if exonerated or fairly adjudicated, come back to help his teammates next season.  If the Raiders win with Fulford under center, their victories will always come with asterisks in my mind.

Good win by CTX over Pre-season #18 Guilford, 68-67 at Guilford!
Concordia is a good team, but GC squandered a lead and missed enough FTs to have won.  Marcus Curry, who scored 31 at Greensboro on Wednesday, left the game with an injury after 14 minutes and 4 points ... hope he is okay.  Disappointing finish, but congratulations to the Tornados.

HSC and host Guilford swap opponents today and tomorrow with Concordia (TX) and Huntingdon coming to Ragan-Brown.  The Hawks are coached by former Quaker standouts Caleb Kimbrough '08 and Ben Strong '08.  Should be interesting.

Guilford opens its season downtown tomorrow night at Greensboro.  I'm sure it will be SRO and the Pride fans will be vocal.  Go Quakers!
It was SRO, it was loud and it was tight, but the Quakers pulled away at the end to win 98-88.  Marcus Curry carried the day in the second half in my opinion.
