Pat:

To far for me from South Jersey to Dickinson. I usually go to the bear's home game. Perhaps, I would see ya there during the first two rounds of the DIV. III tourney.   :D

I am very interested in hearing your opinion of the Ursinus team, and how they stack up to other teams you have seen.

Haverford pounds F&M, 76-64.  Don't let the score fool you - the Fords led by 30 in the second half.  Thomas and Fratangelo had big games for the Fords, while McNally (23 points) seemed to be F&M's only option until Brooks turned it on late.

Looks like Muhlenberg couldn't get any home cooking at Memorial Hall, so F&M remains alive for the fifth spot.  The Dips are trying to die in peace, but nobody will let them.

I liked Ursinus -- on a day where Shattuck was real quiet (couple quick buckets right before Ursinus emptied the bench got him to 14) others stepped up.

Noonan, in particular, impressed me.

Hi, haven't had a post since the beginning of the season but have been following the conference pretty closely all season.  I would like to say that this Ursinus team is having one of the best seasons in conference history but I don't know if I would say they have been one of the best teams. I could be wrong but I would like to see what other people think. With that said, I was thinking about what would happen if you take the best players from each team regardless of graduation year and put them on an all time team and what their combined stats would look like.  I put this together for Ursinus.

   Name              Grad Year   PPG   Shtg %   3 Pt %   FT %   APG   RPG   TO PG
PG   Mike McGarvey   2006   15.4   0.422   0.382   0.726   7.6   3.4   3.9
SG   Dennis Stanton   2004   32.6   0.451   0.393   0.838   1.7   3.9   3.6
F   Nick Shattuck   2008   21.9   0.537   0.395   0.707   2.0   6.5   2.8
F   Richie Barrett   2001   18.3   0.522   0.421   0.741   1.9   7.7   2.2
C   Dan Luciano   2003   19.0   0.584   0.22   0.635   1.8   10.5   3.2
                           
Res G   Luther Owens   2001   12.5   0.447   0.366   0.753   5.6   3.7   3.5
Res F/C   Steve Erfle   2003   16.3   0.563   0.000   0.589   1.5   9.4   3.1
Res F   Will Furey                   2007   15.3   0.507   0.491   0.84   2.1   5.9   2.8
Res G   Brian McEvily   2006   14.4   0.469   0.323   0.849   2.6   3.9   2.6
                           
   Raw Totals      165.7   0.500   0.396   0.742   26.7   54.9   27.7
   Adjusted Totals      124.275   0.500   0.396   0.742   20.0   41.2   20.8


I think these guys would make a pretty good team.  ;D  For the starters I took their POY statistics with the exception of Shattuck ( I took his current stats). For Barrett and Owens I took averages for their shooting percentages because they were not readily available. For the adjusted totals I took 75% of the raw totals because I figured that scoring averages, rebounds, assists, and turnovers would decrease by that much (I could be wrong on that one but you get the idea). What does everyone think of this team?  I am sure some F&M fans can put together an all time team that would match up pretty nicely with this Ursinus team.

Pat Coleman:

Thanks for sharing the pics from the Ursinus/Dickinson game.

Do you think that two teams from the Centennial Conference could make the tourney? I know there has been a history of discussion about the selection of teams, their regional presence and where the games are to be played. Two teams from the Centennial Conference are #1 and #2 in the Mid-Atlantic  Region rankings, which I believe hasn't happened before. Does this bode well for the Conference or is there still a feeling that the Conference is fair to weak?

If they stay 1-2 in the regional rankings then it will be hard for them not to take both teams. Best way, mathematically, for that to happen is for both to win out and Gettysburg to win the CC tournament, but not sure that will be popular here. :)

All corrections have been made thanks for letting me know.

Pick-em's for 2/20/08

John Hopkins      @  McDaniel
Muhlenberg        @  Dickinson
Gettysburg         @  F & M
Haverford           @  Ursinus
Swarthmore       @ Washington

With only one playoff spot open, Muhlenburg, F & M, and Dickinson still have a shot. I started to call it weeks ago. It may come down to Saturday's game with F & M and Dickinson. IF only I could pick my games as well as this.

Picks for 2/20:

This has to be the toughest week to pick'em because some teams can change their playoff position. After looking over all the stats and revenge factors (and reviewing Pat Coleman's comments and paying him $10 for the picks  ;D), what it really comes down to is:  SENIOR DAY.  Seniors on 4 out of the 5 teams will be playing their last home game. Therefore, I am going the emotional route as follows:

Gettysburg
Ursinus
Mcdaniel
Dickinson
Washington

Yesterday, I referenced Pat Coleman (in paranthesis) in assisting me for my 2/20 picks. It was written as a joke.

I have met Pat on several occassions at Ursinus, and I respect his insights and knowledge of the players and the teams in DIII. As I have said before, when Pat speaks, people listen.

I apologize for the comment causing any disrespect to Pat and his work in DIII.

No problem. I took it as a joke.

I've mellowed in my age. :)
