I have watched a number of games of E8 teams this year and believe St John Fisher should roll through the conference this year. I did not realize Stevens left the E8 this year. They would have provided the only resistance to St John Fisher. Hartwick looks to be a dangerous team but do not think they have the horses to win enough games to get home court advantage.

Fisher just played a tournament in Florida, they finished last, Wooster, [Massey 46] a top 25 team beat Brockport [Massey 81] , who is probably the best team in the SUNYAC 94-90 in the final. Fisher [Massey 129] lost to St. Joe's of Maine [Massey 322] 66-64 in the consy.
First Round Wooster beat SJF 81-80, and Brockport beat St. Joe's of Maine 83-73.

I think in the Rochester area, Hobart is probably best, and Brockport not far behind.

Utica with a monster win against Hamilton this afternoon. I may have to rethink my previous post regarding the Empire 8 race!

Utica with a monster win against Hamilton this afternoon. I may have to rethink my previous post regarding the Empire 8 race!

Tough to read into ... with parity now, any really good team has an off night and a good team having a really great game can beat them. It doesn't tell you anything about either squad really because no matter how good teams are ... everyone is beatable these days.

Utica also nearly blew it. They had a 19-point lead (90-71) with 7:37 remaining. They got outscored 26-10 in the next 6:57 (including a 15-2 run immediately after going up 90-71 and an 11-2 run late) and Hamilton was within 3 with 40 seconds left.

Utica held on. So I'd call it a good win ... not a monster win.

For a program like Utica it is most definitely a monster win.   They have been on the up the last 2 years, and now have a win against a top team from a top conference to show how much they've turned around.

If you look at the calendar, we are midway through the 2019-20 regular season. While there are probably more games ahead than behind for many teams, we now find ourselves looking at the half of the campaign.

What have we learned so far? Anything?

We may not be able to answer all of those questions, but we will see if we can turn over a few more rocks to find more clues on Thursday night's Hoopsville.

We will chat with a men's program that has gone from obscurity to at least being in the conference and regional conversation (if not national). Another men's program is about as high as they can go in the national convo, but do we really know how good they are and is there pressure to win it all? Plus a women's team many of you might not be talking about now, but probably will be chatting about come tournament time.

Tonight is also the season debut of the WBCA Center Court segment. We talk to Randy Tuggle, the head coach at Greensboro, on why the season is the perfect distraction for a far bigger priority. Tuggle chats with us about his battle with pancreatic cancer and how his team (and family) have been there every step of the way.
