I am no longer surprised by 5-seeds winning MAC Commonwealth titles. I call it the "Albright Run."

You sure we can't call it the "Alvernia Run."

Yeah - WAY too tired when I wrote that last night.

I did mean "Alvernia Run." WAY too many A teams in this league and way too little sleep this weekend - rather the last seven months with way too little sleep. LOL

We certainly don't make it easy on anyone with our crosstown rival...then throw Arcadia in the mix and its just a cluster.

Lebanon Valley opens its season 15 November at D1 George Mason. (NOTE: this isn't an exhibition game.)

Indeed! The Patriots are led by former D3 national champion Dave Paulsen.

It' is going to be a battle between those top 3 teams.  I could see any of them winning it.  Do not sleep on Albright or Arcadia either.

Commonwealth goes 5-2 tonight in D3 games. LVC played D1 G. Mason and had a lead at the half or later in the half.

Arcadia with a great effort vs Gwynedd Mercy
Stevenson loses as they have some in the past @ old MAC team Etown
Messiah blows buy Clarks Summit
Alvernia with a solid win vs Wesley
Albright over PSU Berks
Hood over Marymount

Good night for the Cwealth!

Quiet board, but just wanted to note that this week's Around the Mid Atlantic column focuses on Lebanon Valley's transformation into a title contender.

Looks like there is a clear 1 and 2 for now in the C Wealth with Lyco and Albright. Albright has been an interesting team this year.

Lyco with a big win to retake first over Albright.

LVC behind a perfect Conrad with a road win at Arcadia, tough place to win these days vs a talented coach and team.

Hood gets a convincing win vs Messiah who was on quite the roll having won 5 of 6.

Widener with a much needed win over Alvernia.

As usual, this conference will be a muddle until the last week, which is what makes it exciting. My money is on Lyco down the stretch.
