I can drive down the street and check for you if you like. :)

Yeah. If Hope had won the title and romped through the bracket, then IWU's close loss would have looked really good. If Hope got mashed by a NESCAC team or lost in the sectional round, IWU's close loss would be less impressive.

Unfortunately we'll never know.

This is why Universities are sending students home because dorm life tends to breed viruses.

Yeesh. That's definitely the truth.

For those who think this is all an overreaction, I encourage you to read this article (or a similar article in an outlet of your choice):

https://www.vox.com/2020/3/10/21171481/coronavirus-us-cases-quarantine-cancellation

I was in the "Calm down, you're overreacting crowd" for the reasons mentioned below. This article gave me a new perspective.

It's not just about whether the athletes are healthy or even whether the disease is more lethal than the flu. There are overall resource limitations on the medical system as a whole and the speed with which the virus inundates the system matters.

I saw something similar with some kind of shot clock light issue at a MAC Commonwealth regular season men's game between Albright and Leb Val a couple years ago. Leb Val was awarded technical shots. The LVC p[layer intentionally bricked em and we started at 0-0.

Agreed. This is the type of civil conversation that's hard to have online nowadays. :)

That's my take, too. Glad I'm not the only one, even if it's the wrong take. :)

So - if you're a journalist(media) its ok to be potentially exposed.
If you are a player or coach its ok to be potentially exposed
If you are an official or time keeper its ok to be potentially exposed
If you are a parent of a player it is not ok to be potentially exposed
If you are a fan it is not ok to be potentially exposed.

Media are probably free to skip the event of their own volition. If we're being honest, at this level they don't need to be there for the event to happen (and a lot of the games played this weekend won't have media other than in-house staff).

I guess they could tell everyone else to stay home and cancel the event altogether. Would that be better than taking a more measured approach?

Does this have something to do with why Yeshiva is being singled out?

When I watched Widener twice this year, I thought they lacked quickness at some positions. On the offensive side, that translated to difficulty creating shots. But, with Captains' Chaos, that could translate to difficulty getting into the half offense.

Side note...

I'm headed north to Scranton to watch the game on Saturday, but not Friday.

Feel free to swing by the press box and say hello. Rofrog, Saratoga and I should take a photo for posterity. :)

True. Geography also helps, as does having half of your conference schedule translate into results against regionally ranked opponents (one of the primary criteria for getting into the tournament and getting hosting rights).

I'm not convinced that Williams is a better at-large candidate than Ohio Northern or Augsburg, but their SOS and vRRO look great because almost every other game is against a regionally ranked team.
