Picks for 1/10/2009

Ursinus (Home court , they are dealing with their rotation without Hilton)
Muhlenberg (Home court)
Haverford (Home court and they seem to be better without Chaz)
Dickinson (They have to win sometime)
Washington (Upset.  Home court and they are playing better)

1/10 picks

Ursinus (Home cooking more than enough)
G-burg (toss-up, empty cavern = not quite the usual frontier justice)
Haverford (home court hunch)
Dickinson (losing this one finishes team that whipped up on non-conference foes)
Washington

Dips ripe for plucking as they leave friendly confines for unfriendly Cain. This begins 4 game road trip that will give test of fire to young Dips. 4 road games in 8 days, if they could win even 2 I make them contender for top 2-3 spots.

I now like Gettysburg more to win CC even more since Ursinus is clearly not the power they have been in recent years.

(I now like Gettysburg more to win CC even more since Ursinus is clearly not the power they have been in recent years.)

I agree.  I said this early on.  Ursinus lost only two (now three) players from last year but their names are Shattuck, Shema & Hilton.  Major losses.  They were over rated at the beginning of the season but look for them to come on strong as they normally do.  Do not count them out---they will get better as we move through the season. 

Interesting look.  F&M is 10-0.  They have played only two games away from home and one could argue that they have played only one or two quality opponents at the most.

Ursinus is 6-4.  They have played seven out of ten games away from home.
Quality opponents---Cornell (who beat Lafayette by 31 this week), Williams, Randolph-Macon (should be/will be in the top 25), St Lawrence and Gettysburg.

Which team grew the most during the preseason by playing teams as good or better than them?
Which team played a very soft preseason schedule?

Picks for 1-10
Ursinus (McDaniel has a nice team but Bears win at home)
Muhlenberg ( If I keep picking them maybe they will win 1, always good at home)
Hopkins( Not sure what to make of Haverford yet)
Dickinson (not playing well in conference but Swat is struggling)
F&M( they are for real)

1/10 picks:

Ursinus
Muhlenberg
Johns Hopkins
Dickinson
Washington

Tough slate of games, but what else should we expect?

Like a few others, I'm going with the Chestertown upset.  Feeling good about their record, the Dips will roll into the House of Cain and suffer a 5-point loss in a high-scoring affair.  F&M has drastically turned the corner from the past three years of mediocrity, but this is still a young team without much experience on the road.  The jury is still out until after the 4-game road swing.  The Dips might be a year ahead of schedule in the rebuilding process, but they won't return from the road trip unblemished -- and knowing the way I pick, I'll miss it when it happens.

F&M is 10-0.  They have played only two games away from home and one could argue that they have played only one or two quality opponents at the most.

Ursinus is 6-4.  They have played seven out of ten games away from home.
Quality opponents---Cornell (who beat Lafayette by 31 this week), Williams, Randolph-Macon (should be/will be in the top 25), St Lawrence and Gettysburg.

A look inside F&M's own athletic department backs up this scheduling argument.  The women's lax team regularly plays one of the toughest non-conference schedules in D-III, and the coach credited that with helping them win the national title two years ago.  Although that type of scheduling is probably easier to do in lacrosse, it certainly applies to basketball.  Ursinus will benefit from playing those teams.  F&M should schedule tough road trips (New England? Ohio? California?) on a yearly basis.

The Centennial Conference got some ink in the Around the Nation column this week.  It's under the Hoopsville section:

"Centennial re-emerging?"

Folks -

The following are my selections for the 1/10 pick-ems:

McDaniel @ Ursinus - Ursinus (might be close)
Gettysburg @ Muhlenberg - Muhlenberg (Mules in a close one at home)
Johns Hopkins @ Haverford - Johns Hopkins
Dickinson @ Swarthmore - Dickinson
F&M @ Washington - F&M (gotta go with my heart)

Hope the snow stays away tomorrow so that I can travel to see the Dips play. Good luck to all. Regards

Eric
