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


Three of the five ... Washington has no seniors.

2/20 picks:

McDaniel
Dickinson
Ursinus
Gettysburg
Swarthmore

Ursinus could win its 17th CC game tonight.  If so, the Bears would tie F&M's record (set in 2004) for most conference wins since the Centennial went to a full double round robin schedule.  Interestingly, it was Ursinus that kept F&M from a perfect CC record in '04 as Dennis Stanton's 55 points beat the Dips in Collegeville.

2/20 picks

McDaniel--hit a dry spell, but seem to be back
Dickinson--do or die
F & M--masochistic
Ursinus--looks like they're going to run the table
Washington--who knows 

Looks like I picked all the home teams.

2/20 Picks -

Hopkins @ McDaniel:   McDaniel. Though, it was a tough pick.

Muhlenberg @ Dicksion:   Dickinson. Another close one. Went with home team. Mules miserable on the road.

Haverford @ Ursinus:   Ursinus. Enough said!

Gettysburg @ F&M:   Gettysburg. Heck, even I am a realist and have jumped ship! However, it might be close in Mayser Center.

Swarthmore @ Washington:   Washington, with no conviction. But, the Garnet are winless on the road!

Good luck to all! Regards,

Eric

Good fortune or luck, whatever you want to call it, the Bear's undefeated CC season is still alive. I was not at the game. I watched the live stats, and I went from elation to despair in a heartbeat. Shattuck makes a layout to tie the game with 1 sec left and gets fouled.  Yesssssssssss, I said. Then he missed the foul shot, and then it was  :o to see Noonan called for a foul with .8 secs left for Haverford to win the game. Nooooooooooooo, I said. What were you thinking  ???And then the foul shot was missed. Shattuck took over in the OT and shows why he should be the POY.

Sloppy game for the Bears. Turnovers were 24. Haverford outscored the Bears 23-11 off of turnovers.

On to muhlenberg  :)

Let me tell you, I have rarely gone through so many emotions in such a short period of time during the final seconds of regulation between Ursinus and Haverford.  But I have to agree, the game was too sloppy. Turnovers have been bothering me all year with this team.  The biggest problem for the Bears was the zone D that Haverford was using (which caused a bunch of turnovers) and their inability to connect on their 3's last night.

Live stats are a great thing, but not when they nearly produce cardiac arrest.  Could this be the longest second of play in Centennial history?  I'm guessing not all of this happened in the final second, but still...what a finish.

From Ursinus Live Stats:

00:01   UC   GOOD! LAYUP by Nick Shattuck        UC 69  HAV 69  TIED
        ASSIST by Remy Cousart
00:01   HAV   FOUL by Mike Fratangelo
00:01   UC   MISSED FT SHOT by Nick Shattuck
        REBOUND (DEF) by Mike Fratangelo
00:01   UC   FOUL by John Noonan
00:01   UC   TIMEOUT TEAM
00:01   HAV   MISSED FT SHOT by Mike Fratangelo
        REBOUND (DEF) by Nick Shattuck
00:01   UC   MISSED 3 PTR by Nick Shattuck

FYI from Johns Hopkins regarding Saturday:

Due to our men's lacrosse game at Noon on Saturday, February 23rd, a variety of parking lots will be open at an event parking rate of $5-10.  These lots are the Space Telescope Lot off of San Martin and 115 University Parkway (near the corner of San Martin and University Parkway).  Metered spots will also be available, though limited on University Parkway and Charles Street.  The parking lot behind the Athletic Center will not be available due to media and television needs.

I was wondering if Live Stats could be sued for causing one's blood pressure to go sky high, possibly leading to cardiac arrest  :-\

Yes, I would agree that it was the longest one sec to be played. I think I was focused/glued on the computer screen for 15 mins.

Anyway, when this was happening, I could nopt help but remember the women's NCAA game between Rutgers and Tennessee (last week ithink). The last few secs ticked down, and then .. incredibly .. the game clock appeared to stop/pause at the 2 sec mark. The pause seemed like an eternity - like the last one sec at Ursinus. Anyway, a foul was called against Rutgers and Tennessee won the game on the foul line with less than a sec remaining. It was a controversal foul call, and ... well, the rest is history. 

I think there should be coach's challeneges and instant replay from now on .. (just kidding   ;D)
