Wish I was going to F&M's game today, but decided I didn't want to drive that far by myself especially considering the forecast.
It will be interesting to see how F&M's young squad deals with the upcoming 4 away games.
F&M will need to get Brooks back soon and have Selig healthy again to be at full strength. With Brooks' recent surgery and Selig's bout with the flu, F&M has been able to improve their depth a little.  Tolliver has had the opportunity to shoot more often, and he has shown an outstanding touch from 3 point range.  Johnson has shown signs of his potential, but he needs to learn how to play defense on a consistent basis.
Go Dips.  I'll be following the updated play-by-play on the internet.
Enjoy your trip, Eric.

Reserved Seat - have you heard anything on when Brooks might return to action?

Safe travels to everyone making road trips today.

Brooks needs the doctor to tell the coaches he's cleared to play.
He's listed to start today, so the clearance must have come through.

Thanks Reserved, I see he's in the lineup on live stats.  But nothing's happening on live stats - wonder if the women's game ran late?

Half
F&M 36
Washington 35

technical foul on the bench cost F&M 4 points in the last 2 seconds of the first period

Tolliver needs to make 2 more 3-pointers to qualify for a national ranking.
The qualifying rules say you must make 2.5 threes per game played to make the list.  His current percentage would make him number one in the nation.  The current leader was shooting 63%.
Rank   Name, Team                      Cl        Ht        Pos     G      3FG      3FGA     3FG%
1   Mitch Schafer, Manchester   So.   6-4   C   13   33   52   63.5

Tolliver  26 for 39

The CC hierarchy is more illuminated after today's tilts.

I'll rank the teams in order of their playoff potential.

1. Gettysburg (luckily my pick at start, but egg laid at Ursinus threw me)
2. McDaniel (Thought they would be good but not this good)
3. F&M (I'll gladly sabotage my pick-em status if they keep winning on road while I pick against them)
4. Johns Hopkins (Gave up on them after Goldfarb loss to Dips)
5. Ursinus (kept here out of deference to their decade of CC dynasty)
6. Dickinson (1st win in CC might wake up this experienced team)
7. Muhlenberg (Lack of ability to win on road keeps Mules out of playoff mix)
8-9. Haverford/Washington (both dangerous but out of mix)
10. SWAT (poor Garnet could be a long year at bottom of this balanced tough conference)

More on Bears, instead of aura of invincibility there's the sense of blood in the water. They were not what they've been & the loss of one of their top experienced scorers will now have every team believing they can take them anywhere even at Collegeville. By comparison the pre-season Dips have weathered illness & injury & have found a way to win ugly. F&M will lose soon, probably in Westminster & definitely in Allentown if they were still unbeaten, plus the Fords could upset at home too.

Big win for F&M on the road.
Winning at Washington should boost the confidence of a young team.
Despite the fact that both starting guards fouled out with significant time left, F&M didn't let the game slip away at the end.  Brooks must have been rusty after missing so much time.
If the weather is reasonable on Tuesday, I hope to see F&M at McDaniel.

Solid analysis D.B.  The surprises for me have been Dickinson (thought they'd start stronger) and F&M (preseason expectations of maybe sneaking into the CC playoffs have now increased).

McDaniel also looks like a stronger squad than I thought.  Tuesday's clash in Westminster will tell us a lot about both the Terror and Dips.  F&M can't lose Milligan and Brooks to foul trouble, turn it over 23 times, and expect to win like they did today.
