Conference play really gets back into full swing this week: 3 game weeks for everyone! This week could finally (maybe?) start to create a little separation amongst the league.
Swarthmore still looking like the team to beat, but Dickinson is starting to come around as well. Other than that, 5 teams sit either 3-2 or 2-3. It's a muddled mess! Some thoughts:
Even though F&M is sitting at 1-4, still think they have time to turn things around, but this week is crucial for them. Home games against the Mules and WAC and then a road game at Swat.
Watch out for Hopkins too, a pair of home games this week and then finish the week at Haverford. A 3-0 week for them could do wonders for them going forward. But, those 2 home games are against Dickinson and Swarthmore, so those will be tough, but luckily for them, those teams have to go to Goldfarb.
I think WAC could throw a wrench in some plans as well, with 2 home games against Ursinus and Dickinson this week. If they can use their press defense effectively and make some shots, the Bears and Red Devils could have some trouble. Plus, they've shown the ability in the past, even with less talented teams, to give F&M fits, so that could be tricky for the Dips too.
Enjoy the games everyone! These three game weeks are fun!
