Will be interesting to see how TLU fares in their first playoff appearance in like forever, plus they haven't traveled much this season.   Other than the conference trips to Colorado and Louisiana this will be their first out-of-state trip and four of their five D3 losses have been on the road.   In the road win on Sunday the TLU crowd outnumbered the Trinity faithful ...
 
I was at their win over Trinity in the SCAC finals and their earlier season loss at TU;  they are a plucky bunch with good shooting from beyond the arc and a 6'4" post who can dominate inside.   They were fortunate in that Trinity committed three turnovers in the last 30 seconds but good teams make their fortune.   They play a lot of players and often substitute all five players at a time.   They'll be a decided underdog against John Carroll - TLU is riding a 14 game winning streak but the SCAC's not a power conference.
