Nothing approaching a big game today, 12/5/19... a slim Thursday night schedule....

Closest might be a Skyline match up between Preseason 1 Yeshiva (7-1) amd Preseason 2 Farmingdale St (3-4... but losses have been to some GOOD teams)

At the other end of the spectrum... in the SLIAC, Webster (1-6) hosts Spalding (0-5)....

On Yeshiva, leading scorer Ryan Turell sat out the last game, so his presence or lack thereof might be an issue.  I think the Macs are strong enough to win every game in their conference without a full roster, but you never know.

The other pieces Yeshiva has around him are still more than enough to get the job done. Example, Gabriel Leifer putting up a triple double without Turell in the lineup on Tuesday.
Broadcaster. Writer. Analyst. Fan. Voter. Centennial Conference focus, with an eye on D3 as a whole. D3 Basketball runs my life for over a quarter of the year and I have no problems with that. My wife feels differently about that last part.

George Fox likes to push pace and play uptempo.  I suspect one or both teams will top 100 in that one.  Should be fun to watch.

At least in these snowy parts of Upstate NY, I would call SUNY Oswego [4-1 Massey #100] at Brockport [3-1 Massey #118] as a big game.

Those two teams are the preseason chalk in the SUNYAC

The battle of Lake Ontario.

Yeah, these seem to be the two best teams in the conference so far, did they not get voted high or are their records not great?  Why didn't they make the list?

My formula said better than .75 winning %...Brockport is 3-1, at .75, so the game didn't kick out for me... and I missed catching it so I didn't manually enter... other problem is that SUNY doesn't have preseason poll, so it didn't show any school as being top 3 in preseason.... wish I had caught it though...

A very short schedule today. 12/12/19...... But one interesting game..

ASC Mary Hardin-Baylor H (6 - 1)     vs SCAC St. Thomas (Tx.) A (4 - 0)   
        St. Thomas is a 1st year provisional NCAA D3 team that plays a full SCAC conference schedule... I've included them as a D3 team in my data..the trouble is, this game is considered an exhibition for MH-B, and a real game for St. Thomas.... for us data guys it's a head scratcher... win and losses for D3 vs D3 won't come out even!!!????

We're a little unsure about the legality of making a provisional team exhibition during the season.  Sul Ross did it as well, against JWU-Denver.  If you want to do some investigating... that might be a question I don't quite have time to answer.

I personally hate the exhibition for one and real game for another at any and all levels. The players man up and play the game, the coaches and programs should also. IMO
