First Regional Rankings are out: https://www.d3hoops.com/notables/2020/02/men-regional-rankings-first

Pretty happy with #6 ranking. Question for discussion purposes...what is the lowest you can be regionally ranked and have a shot at hosting?

3 in a good region, 2 in most.

Remember they now take what the committee thinks are the top 16 teams in the country ... with no "distribution" or even handedness to each region ... so they don't have to give two to a region.

 1st step for Pool C consideration is to make your regional ranking, then eliminate all the Pool A teams above u in the regional ranking to enhance "getting to the table" for consideration vs all the other regions' representatives.
  In Scranton's case, they r now 3rd in the Mid-Atlantic, after the Swarthmore-JHU loser, and the CNU-York loser, barring, of course, some other team(s) winning their conference tourney and the AQ spot.

 Susquehanna, Drew, and Scranton lock up 3 of the 4 conference tourney spots; Moravian will claim the 4th with 1 more win.

The Royals simply can't win the important games needed to separate from the pack.

They'll end up with a similar record as other teams but lose the top spot due to some tie-breaker rule, have to go to Susquehanna again & season over.

Same results & issues, different year.

Just play sixty minutes please!

No Coach D on the sideline last night....good to see a Royals press that had some turnovers. Not sure if he caught the flu, I'll wait for injury report.

Yeah ... I'm a little surprised the Moravian games aren't listed since they are only a game out of first. Unless thinking that Susquehanna will beat Moravian Wednesday to keep the Crusaders River Hawks in the fight?

Teams in the running for the final four spots that could shuffle around in bold ...

I find it interesting the four are all at home on Saturday. Interesting quirk.

Goucher and Juniata still battling it out for who will have first pick in next season's draft ...
