Just tuned into Hanover-Transy    Conference final... there may be 30 people in the stands that face the camera.... pitiful

compare to the unheard-ofs out in the midwest... Yeshiva-Farmingdale St... Skyline...FULL HOUSE, super atmosphere..

pretty sad for the HCAC... maybe they should have brought in Ohio Midwestern to attract more attendance....

ok Dave, I'm sorry... had to put in one last shot...
The only thing not to be liked in Florida is no D3 hoops!!!

To be fair, Hanover (1004) has less than a quarter the students of Farmingdale (4455) where the Skyline game was played and the turnout looks similar with Hanover having a little over a quarter the attendance (315 at Hanover vs 1132 at Farmingdale). Plus Yeshiva is only 35 miles away while Transy is 99.

I'd have loved for the place to be packed but that's just not going to happen in the HCAC.

Hanover will face Wheaton (IL) on Friday with the game being at Wooster. Here's my quick gameplan for the Panthers… triple team Aston Francis the entire game and make someone else beat you.

Also of note, Hanover's students were gone from Campus. The side behind the benches was pretty packed and very loud... atmosphere was much better than I am sure it seemed from the view of the video broadcast. I agree, certainly wish it drew a bigger crowd but that doesn't take away from what was a great game IMO.

Yeshiva travels really well.  They absolutely outnumbered the Farmingdale folks Sunday.  Heck, they were about 80% the size of the York crowd at York for the NCAA first round last year.

Clearly Hanover didn't take my advice as Francis is 10 of 17 from the field for 25 points at halftime while the rest of Wheaton is 8 of 18 for 20 points. Panthers are 8 of 30 for 27 points.

With Hanover losing Fails and RHU losing Aimone, does Transylvania vhave enough to make a run returning everyone?

I'll do another Way Too Early prediction sometime soon.
Franklin should also be a contender, they were one of the best teams towards the end of the season and had no seniors on the team.
