Union...ugggh...dlip turned it off at the half to hit the hay fairly confident his beloved Garnet (who were dropping threes like wildfire) would handle business. Guess they didn't. Props to Bard for not packing it in and fighting back. Maybe this also explains more about the earlier loss to MCLA. That the Dutchmen are just inconsistent and haven't found their footing yet.
There's only one place that makes Shocktown look good...that's Troylet.

Almost half way through conference play and only one big surprise so far: St. Lawrence......Really didn't expect Naclerio's return to have this level of impact, although they do have a stellar freshmen class as well. Considering how rough of a season they had last year as well as a couple of impact outbound transfers, this is definitely a surprise.

Hobart is playing as well as you can expect considering what their injuries. Even without those guys, they should have enough talent to finish with a top 2 seed. Skidmore has had a rough stretch here but I expect them to turn it around. It feels like outside of RIT, any team has the ability to be beat anyone else on any given night, should be an exciting second half.

Naclerio has had a big impact but the biggest surprise is Chris Miner.  He has played extremely well this year at center.  He’s blocked a lot of shots, rebounded well and most importantly been a threat offensively down low.

Sh(n)owdown between  SLU and Hobart this weekend ......can SLU keep the mojo and stay on top or has Hobart settled into a groove post injuries to tie it up ?

This is always an interesting matchup.  Hobart used to shoot the lights out in one of the 2 games just about every single year with the exception of 2016 when SLU had their best season in almost a decade.  SLU's bigs have been playing extremely well the last 2 weeks, but Hobart has some decent length and can match up well.
