Yep, Salisbury will be a tough test...I'm still waiting for them to come back down to earth...heck of a season, so far, considering all the pre-season drama.

We may have to wait a while.  They got some real solid wins over the break.

If UMW plays like they did against Frostburg, they could lose to anyone - note: at least one starter was very ill during the game.  If they play like they did against CNU, they could beat anyone in the conference.  Wednesday's game will be a great test for both schools.

All teams suffer injuries, but UMW has had more than its fair share this year.  Just got Drew Johnson back and now they are without Khiorie Stewart.  Hope they all are healthy soon.

Great win for UMW.  It stinks their two biggest home games were played while students on break.  Salisbury looks good but have to wonder if depth will be an issue.  I only saw 4 players on the bench.  Some big runs by both teams tonight but MW kept composure and closed it out.  Go Eagles!

Yep, another nice win for UMW and a sound effort for the Captains against St. Mary's....

Now UMW needs to win on the road.  They have shown themselves to be legit conference title contenders.  This is fun.

Salisbury will be fine. The depth will change once the spring semester starts. It was a learning experience the 1st half, but to fight back to get the score within 4 was much more interesting to watch from a Seagull perspective. Kudos to UMW, it was a good win. See you on the 30th in front of pack crowd at home. 1st game when all the students return, should be great.

How will the depth change once the spring semester starts? In basketball, any new players can join the team once the first semester is officially closed.

They can't always move into dorms, though - sometimes schools have different rules for what counts as the start of the semester.

I understand there are quirks... but in the world of basketball, once the first semester is marked as finished - the second semester in terms of eligibility begins.

A little surprised that UMW doesn't have any votes for top 25.  Sure they have a bad loss - but it was on the road and in-conference.  They have two top 20 wins and a win on the road over another team (Guilford) receiving votes.  I would expect that if they can win a couple this week that they would start receiving votes.  Am I too biased?

They've got four losses - the Lynchburg one isn't terrible, but margins in the other two ODAC losses are not really Top 25 caliber.  Wins over CNU and Salisbury certainly help the resume, but it's tough to know what part of the season is more indicative of who they are.  Like anyone else, if you keep winning it'll get noticed.
