Wash U. gave Thomas More a serious game.  They looked pretty good.  TMC got most of its 88 points from three players.

If you are Maryville, or Guilford or Lynchburg, do you want to play these teams during the season?  Building a credible schedule is important and so is playing really good competition, but losing a bunch is a bummer!

For what it is worth, here is the link to the Maryville paper's story about MC and TMC, including the coach's comments about TMC.   http://www.thedailytimes.com/sports/defending-champions-knock-out-mc-women-in-sweet/article_006f24bb-e505-538a-81bb-e34f3eb970b1.html

^^^ Yes, a good game. Abby Owings for TMC was unconscious from 3 in the 4th quarter to keep Wah U from having a chance with Moss on the bench with four fouls. Probably time to end this conversation since there are no ODAC teams involved. Enjoyed sharing posts with you.

I am ok with ending this but I am curious what you and others think of my earlier question, which does involve ODAC (and USASouth):

If you are Maryville, or Guilford or Lynchburg, do you want to play these teams (Wash U, Thomas More,...) during the season?  Building a credible schedule is important and so is playing really good competition, but losing a bunch is a bummer!

Always a good idea to schedule strong competition in non-conference play. I think you have to assess what your expectations are for your team as you schedule for the next season and choose appropriately challenging competition that is also geographically viable. Thomas More is reachable for most ODAC schools so if an ODAC coach thinks they have a strong enough team going into next season I don't see why not. To schedule Wash U you'd have to meet somewhere in the middle at a neutral site "classic" unless an ODAC school wants to travel to Saint Louis for the tournament Wash U hosts every year which would get them two games, but not necessarily one against Wash U. They'd either have to be paired against Wash U in the opening round or have the same result (win or loss) as Wash U in the opening round to play them. I guess that's two chances out of three, so maybe worth it.

 Have seen Ariona Johnson play; she'll be a factor.

Guilford (7-0) receiving votes (43 points) in Top 25 voting ... not in the Top 25 yet, but on the periphery and moving up at 27th.

Nice article by Brian Lester in ATR about Guilford's Anais Weatherly.  I've seen her play and any kudos she receives are richly deserved.  Hope you'll take the time to check her out when she's at home or on the road.
