BB: South Region General Talk -- '07, '08, '09 and '10
« on: March 24, 2007, 10:57:01 pm »
This may be early, but the South Region seems to be loaded with teams with great records so far. Six teams usually make regionals, but this year might spell otherwise because so many of the top teams in the country reside in the south. Some early records from the region...feel free to add or update.

THROUGH MARCH 24, 2007
Rhodes --- 22-4
Salisbury --- 19-3
Emory --- 18-3
Averett --- 27-6
Millsaps --- 18-6
Maryville --- 18-7
NC Wesleyan --- 19-11
Methodist --- 17-7
CNU --- 17-7
Wash & Lee --- 13-6
LaGrange --- 16-7
Virginia Wesleyan --- 14-7
Huntingdon --- 14-8
St. Mary's --- 13-8
Lynchburg --- 13-9
Greensboro --- 14-12
Ferrum --- 13-11
York --- 8-4

Samuel Adams, thanks for starting the thread.

That looks like a good list.  Would you be able to go back and find the "in-region records" for the first 6-10 teams?  The in-region record is an important criteria for the regional rankings which we will get in late April.

An in-region game has 4 components to its definition:

-- in conference.
-- in the South Evaluation Region.  (The 2007 Handbook is not out yet.  Here is the link to the 2006 Handbook.)
-- within a 200-mile radius.  (You can try msn.mappoint.com "Shortest Distance" for that.)
-- and new for 2006-07, within the Administrative Regions.  Region #1 is the New England 6, NJ, DE, DC, MD.  Region #2 is NY and PA.  Region #3 is VA, NC, SC, GA, FL, AL, MS, LA, AR, TN KY, IN, MI, OH, WV.

Thanks.  I look forward to your list.  (One of the things that you fans can do it to try is to complie these data and other such content.  That is what has made the Football and Hoops boards so valuable.  If you have a question, then personal-message me or email me or even write the question on the message board.  Someone will be glad to help you learn the "ins-and-outs" of the NCAA.  We are all learning this stuff daily!  ;) )

One other thing...I have never had another fan flame me for a typo or data accumulation error when I have been compiling these lists.  I always appreciate a fan "proof-reading" or "double-checking" my work!

Thanking you in advance... :)

Samuel....did I miss something or did the NCAA boot this years ODAC conference champion out of the South Regional?

With the way the ODAC played this year against the USA South, I would not be surprised if they were booted out.

Then again, I would not be surprised if an ODAC team ends up winning the south regional :)

h-sc bball,

to answer your question, you don't have a shot.

you guys went 3-6 against the USA South.  More losses in 9 USA South match-ups then in 18 match-ups against ODAC teams.

You got swept by 5th place CNU.
 
You beat Averett by 1- AU pitchers only gave up one earned run.  Seems like they beat themselves.

You beat NCWC by 1- NCWC did not throw any of their top 4 pitchers (Rice, Roberson, Pearson, Moore).  NCWC was playing their 7th game in 7 days.  They also had a big series the next day against Ferrum, while you guys had a tough series against a (9-25) Roanoke team.

You beat Ferrum by 1 in extra innings.   You scored most of your runs against a pitcher with an ERA of 15.4 and who has thrown only 2 innings all year.

The ODAC is a combined (10 teams) W 152 and L 203 for a whopping .428 winning %.

The USA South is a combined (7 teams) W 176 and L 103 for a .631 winning %

The USA South owns the ODAC this year W50-L19 for a .725 winning %

Its obvious which conference is better.
I sure do love stats :)
Good luck in your tournament.

The team you need to fear if they make it is Lynchburg...more than held their own against the mighty golliaths from the USASAC.

I expect Millsaps would end up in the Central to make way for the ODAC Champion.

Hornets19,

Lynchburg and VWC seemed to be the only teams that held their own against the USA-South

Could happen.

Could see Chapman, Pac Lu, George Fox, the ASC champion, the SLIAC champion and Millsaps or Rhodes in a Texas-based tournament (I think both have a shot to get in right now). I just think with the NEAC and NAC getting automatic bids and the number of teams that look like potential regional teams in the South, that everything's going to flow east. I think the SLIAC champion could get shipped just to try to balance things out a little bit. I would also imagine there's some forward momentum to have the regional somewhere other than Hart Park.

The glut of teams in the country's northeast is going to have to go somewhere, either south or west. Either way, some folks are getting displaced somewhere.

FYI, Villa Julie has an automatic bid into the regional and is a South Region team.
