The fact is, not one time in 29 games was CNU called for twice as many fouls and shot less than 3 times the amount of free throws...if you care to, watch the press conference w/CNU's coach...it's obvious to me he took issue w/the officiating, as well.

Anyway, I've said my piece...take care, everyone.

Until the Sweet 16 not one time did they play a team that was physically and athletically at least their equal either.

And you simply can't say x number of fouls equals y number of FT (you keep going back to the vast difference in FT attempts).  What kind of fouls were they (offensive, shooting, and one, common fouls under the bonus limit) all have an impact.  Perfect example of that in a CNU game vs YorkPA earlier in the year (87-85 win for YorkPA on 2/17/18).

Total fouls on YorkPA = 19
Total FT by CNU = 26

Total fouls on CNU = 18 (yup, 1 less total foul)
Total FT by YorkPA = 15 (13 less ???)

Sometimes when someone is convinced they or their team has been wronged... they can't see past the team-tinted glasses and look at it from any other perspective. We all know how it goes, seen it happen, probably been guilty of it ourselves.

OMG, those NESCAC teams must be good.  Hope lost to Thomas More - Amherst beat them by 18.  Trine lost to Wartburg - Bowdoin beat them by 28!!

An all NESCAC title game.

Indeed . . . though in the direct MIAA/NESCAC matchup, Trine narrowly lost to Amherst . . . so score comparisons tell multiple stories (Virginia loses to UMBC by 20, which loses to Albany by 43, which loses to Binghamton by 13, etc.).  Still, point well made.

Congratulations to Hope, though that game was tougher than I was expecting.  Thomas More looked pretty damn good tonight, but since Sidney Moss ain't suiting up in the DeVos tomorrow, I think you will taken 'em out.

Congratulations to Trine on a GREAT season.  I confess I underestimated Wartburg - their schedule was not the toughest in the world, but they are a legitimately undefeated team nonetheless.  I'd say they have as good a chance as anyone at winning the whole enchilada.

FYI - Thomas More was a darn good program before Moss arrived and proving to be good after. Abby Owings is a damn good player and she lead them to their second only national title, not Moss, because her play in the championship against Tufts was outstanding.

I think Hope matches up well, but that will not be an easy game whatsoever.

I was impressed Hope was able to come back against CNU, but that game showed a lot for both teams. That was a terrific game.

Common misconception.   You don't have the level of success they've had from one player, who was only there three years.  Their current run has even survived a coaching transition...
