Ursinus shot an incredible 15 for 21 from the 3-point line.  No matter who shot, the ball was dead on.
Shattuck was the coldest of Ursinus' shooters, and he was still three for seven.  Meanwhile F&M shot 3 for 22 from the 3-point line.  Almost everything they shot was off.  It was an easy win win for Ursinus.
With the 3-pointers dropping, they never had to work the ball inside.

Saw the Ursinus/F&M on video stream last night.

It was an incredible display of 3 point shooting. The Bears moved the ball around very well and a shooter was open most of the time. Granted, the shooter has to make the shot. The Bear's defense was pretty good on the Dips. Most of the time there was a Bear's player in the Dip's face making their shots difficult. Morevoer, Shema did a great job with his blocked shots (I think he had 7) and intimidated the Dip's inside game.

I was impressed with McNally's play, and F&M could have a good future with him for the next 3 years.

I thought last night that the Dips could of moved the basketball quicker to McNally inside and then McNally back out to the guards, and then swing it around for some open shots. However, hard to beat 15 for 21 on 3 point shooting.

Great night for Coach Small. He wins his 100th CC game, and becomes the Bear's winningest coach.

Boy, did Muhlenberg play like donkeys last night. And Dickinson could only score 3 points in the last 4:46 mins of the game, and lose by 2. And then, there is Hopkins being smoked on their home court.

This does not bode well for my record.  >:(

Was there a full moon last night ?

old ends, thanks for the generosity, but I was a pitiful 1-4 Wednesday night (2/13).

Leo, I haven't seen shooting like that in a long time.  The Bears have an incredible group of guards.  Noonan and Shattuck are difficult to defend, and Cousart makes the whole offense run smoothly.

As for McNally, he could average 18 and 12 for the next three years and it won't matter.  Until they get better guard play, especially at the point, the Dips will remain a mediocre program.

Old Ends -

Unless I am mistaken, I believe that I was 3-2 for 2/13 and not 4-1. Like the rest of us, I think that perhaps your tabulating system suffered from momentary down-time! It's not that I don't want the extra win to move up in the standings. But, I want to do so on the merits or lack thereof for my picks!

Folks -

I guess it is that time already - time to make the picks for 2/16 (or is that "the donuts")! Anyway, here are my deranged musings -

Ursinus @ Dickinson:   Ursinus. Nothing to say here even though the Red Devils really need the win! Golden Bears all the way.

Franklin And Marshall @ Haverford:  F&M. This is one of the two more difficult games to choose. But, I will pick the Dips for a rare road win as they really need it to stay in the hunt for a spot in the conference tournament. They were helped by some of Wednesday evening's other losses.

Johns Hopkins @ Muhlenburg:  Johns Hopkins. Here is the other tough game to call - just not very sure about either squad. Mules are better at home and really need the game more to stay in the hunt for a conference tournament slot. Hopkins has the better overall record and is only average on the road. Everything else being fairly even, I will take the Blue Jays since a loss by the Mules helps the Dips more!

Swarthmore @ Gettysburg:   Gettysburg. Not too much to say here either. The Garnet are winless on the road and the Bullets are clearly the better team and always tough at Bream.

Washington @ McDaniel:   McDaniel. Although the Shoremen beat the Green Terror in their first meeting, the outcome should be different this time, especially since it is at the Gill Center. See above comments on the Swarthmore/Gettysburg game.

And, there you have it. Hopefully, if the weather is nice tomorrow morning, I may head out of town and head for the Main Line to see the Dips play at Haverford, especially since I didn't make it to Mayser on Wednesday night!

Boys, these pick-em have sure been fun. It is too bad we didn't have a few more participants supporting other schools. But then, Old Ends might have needed assistance with the tabulating process! Good luck to all. Regards,

Eric

The crystal balls must've been working on Wednesday.  The nasty weather must have clouded the globes.  I think I cracked mine when I slipped on my icy driveway.  A blue haze still affects my picks.
Here goes:

F & M--a must win and that blue haze effect
John Hopkins--the crystal is cloudy on this one
Gettysburg--too much for the Garnet
McDaniel--at home and Washington is struggling
Ursinus--even if they don't shoot as well as Wednesday

1/16 picks

Haverford: Dips road woes may snuff out season
Muhlenberg: Back in the visitor unfriendly confines
Gburg: lead pipe cinch
McDaniel: another slam dunk pick
Ursinus: May do it to the Devils

What has happened to F&Ms Scovill?
