Boy is this conference taking on water fast. Another lousy slate of games on Tuesday. Southern Maine fell to 2-6, losing at home to a middling at best Salem State team 78-69...USM trailed by 21 midway through the 4th quarter. The Huskies' only two wins are against a lousy Southern Vermont team and Eastern Connecticut, which becomes more suspect by the day. Keene State was not impressive in a 56-49 home win over a futile Worcester State team. The Owls have no wins to write home about, as they have come against Westfield State, Endicott, RPI, and Worcester State (twice). Plymouth State lost 49-47 to a Lasell team that scored 36 points in each of the last two games (one being against MCLA). The Panthers have lost five straight, with those coming against Castleton, Colby-Sawyer, Lyndon State, Rhode Island College, and Lasell. Their lone win is over Rivier. Western Connecticut was able to collect a 62-32 blowout win over cupcake Mitchell. The Colonials have turned things around somewhat since a difficult weekend in New Jersey earlier this season.
I'm not sure it will get any better tomorrow. Eastern Connecticut, coming off a loss to 2-6 Southern Maine, hosts Williams. Rhode Island College is home against Emmanuel and UMass-Boston travels to play Framingham State.
