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.

Yes... I had the JWUD-Sul Ross game highlighted too... well JWUD lost... If St. Thomas wins, at least total wins and losses will equal!! ;D ;D

My thought was that if the game is schedules and can't be real for MHB and Sul Ross because of the 25 game limit, then they ought to be exhibitions for JWUD and St.Thomas also...

Well, it doesn't matter one way or another for the provisionals.

Albion actually won their contest against DePauw yesterday (live stats had the result backwards for a bit).

OAC Marietta (7-0) vs. MIAA Albion (6-1)   Should be a dandy today.

Thanks VERY much 5th & P... I had the Tourney originally scheduled as a classic... second day matchups had been predetermined... when they changed over to a winners-winners tourney, I didn't see it... I would not have caught it until scores came in later today..
AND.. my wife spent her High School days with an address of Putnam Road, Peekskill..... How about that!!!

I'm not sure how many people know, but Fifth and Putnam is the street corner the entrance to Marietta College sits on.

Big games today, 12/19/20   

nonconference   CCIW Illinois Wesleyan H (7 - 2)     vs UAA Washington U. A (8 - 1)   A rivalry has been built... 2 outstanding programs      

add to that IWU-WashU game a number of good games between teams with winning records

nonconference   AEC Marymount TN (6 - 3)     vs SAA Centre TN (7 - 2)         
nonconference   LEC Mass-Dartmouth TN (7 - 3)     vs UAA Case Western Reserve TN (6 - 3)         
nonconference   NESCAC Bates TN (5 - 2)     vs GNAC St. Joseph (Conn.) TN (6 - 2)         
***   NCAC Allegheny H  (0 - 2) (6 - 3)       vs Ohio Wesleyan A  (1 - 1) (5 - 2)         
nonconference   LAND Moravian H (5 - 3)     vs SKY Yeshiva A (11 - 1)         
nonconference   UAA Carnegie Mellon H (5 - 2)     vs PrAC Washington and Jefferson A (7 - 3)         

and 1 to keep our eyes on... I never include D3 games vs non D3, but this one could be interesting

nonconference   MACC Widner A (10 - 0)     vs NCAA-D1 Lafayette H (6 - 2)   
A great opportunity to see if one of D3's best can play with a very good D1 Patriot League team...Lafayette has 4 close wins against Ivy schools, but their scariest win was a romp over St. Joe's of Philly (I hope they're having a down year)... With an expected loss, Widener will drop from our undefeated list to  our undefeated against D3 only list... an unexpected Widener win would be a magical Christmas Present for the entire D3 world...

I would think Widener going in undefeated against a D1 team is PUMPED
