D3hoops projected the field of teams for the tourney:

http://www.d3hoops.com/salem/08/projected.htm

Encouraging to see Gettysburg listed which makes for 2 teams from the CC in the tournament.

Both Ursinus AND Gettysburg will host this weekend:

Hard to believe the CC would have two teams in the dance, let alone both hosting the first two rounds.  Great year for the conference...

Here goes nothing:

Ursinus--should be a good start
Va. Wesleyan--stronger schedule
Salem St.--witch hysteria
Elms--off season for Scranton

I am going to do the picks for the NCAA tourney

Ursinus            vs     Baptist Bible - I really think UC gets its done for its first NCAA tournament win under Kevin Small. 

Va. Wesleyan  vs     WPI - The marlins know how to get it done when it really counts (2 straight years in the National Championship

Gettysburg       vs     Salem St. - This one is going to be close based on the numbers, could go either way

Scranton          vs     Elms - flipping a coin

NCAA picks

Ursinus: Bears get gorilla off back, but BBC is better than you think & game should be competitive

Virginia Wesleyan: Marlins will soar, have pedigree to go deep

Gettysburg: Will find way to get by frequent dancer at Bream

Elms: Scranton team not reminiscent of the old time Rockin' Royals under Bessoir

Ursinus over BBC, VWU over WPI & in the finals...VWU over the Bears by 4. At G-burg...they knock off the Witches & Scranton takes care of the Trees. In the championship...the Royals fire at will & take down G-burg by 8. They may not be Bess's Rock & Roll Royals...but, they arn't bad either. Two more wins this weekend & the Fosters will be flowing in Scranton...underestimate at will.

NCAA Pick ems:

Ursinus (the monkey will get his banana for the win)
Virginia Wesleyan (have you seen their mascot, that is one scary Marlin)
Gettysburg (what can I say Capkin, Capkin, and more Capkin)
Scranton (the historic Steamtown museum will chug along for the win)

Welcome to the new prognosticators. We welcome your insight, anaylsis, wit and your money  :)

Rumor has it that Old Ends will offer a free trip to Salem with final's ticket to the best overall record   :o

Thanks bearsfan1 for the stats--
Saratoga --FYI-- if you want me to count the finals you picked I will, but I will post another right after the games for the finals. Let me know

Old ends picks..
Ursinus-- Conference loyality
VaWesleyan--did not get to #18 for lousy play
Gettysburg--Conference loyality
Elms--won thier conference just think they may go futher than most think..

Leo-- with the cost of fuel, anymore, walking or biking would be a better choice for a free ride.

As soon as the games are over I will post the pick-em's for the next day..As long as you pick before game time it will count.

Stats March 2nd:

After the NCAA's would like to look at next year's thoughts.. I did notice that Dickinson had three Juniors in the top 25 of scoring...

NCAA Pick-Ems -

Ursinus - its finally time for Shattuck and company to win a few in the Big Dance.

Virginia Weslyan - lots of tourney experience. Playing good at the right time.

Salem State - Tough game to pick. Stats appear to favor Salem. Over 12 more rebounds per game for Salem. Have always been a physical program. Perhaps, too physical for the Bullets.

Elms - Another close game. I'm opting for experience in this one.

Good luck to all, Regards.

Eric
