I'm sure the excuse o-meter down at Broad Street is operating on overdrive. They will all put an asterisk next to this L, because Baldwin was hurt. Still goes down as a L though, no matter how much they protest.Colorado - UMass game should be interesting. Colorado just handily beat a highly ranked Tennessee team.
VCU gets an easy one, Pitt is just awful under Capel. And looks even worse than usual this season. VCU has some guys out I believe.
The CofC game might end up as a Q1 loss if they keep winning. I think it is already a Q2 loss, for away games they only have to be in the top 135 to count as quad 2. If they ge into the top 75 it is quad 1.CoC looking very good again against Colorado State. Makes last night feel even worse since pretty sure the CoC game will be a Q2 loss at the end.
Davidson, Colorado St., and VT games are all part of the Charleston Classic...very popular MTE run by ESPN, so they get decent names. You're only allowed to participate in a given MTE once every four years, and this just happens to be one of the years CofC is participating as they hadn't been in it since 2016. Even though they're usually a step down from most of the other teams in the event (not this year though!), the local draw is obviously appealing for the organizers.How did CofC manage to schedule OOC home games against us, Davidson, Colorado St. and Virginia Tech!
I didn't see the VCU score till later in the evening but judging from the quietness on social media, I assumed VCU got their ass*s handed to them.UMass 60, Charlotte 54 - Nice Myrtle Beach MTE championship
Davidson 66, ODU 61 - Good Charleston Classic bounceback to win 2 after losing to CofC
SLU 76, Providence 73 - Thanks for the revenge, A-10 brother
Charleston 77, VT 75 - Great win to take the Charleston Classic title
Drake 61, Wyoming 56 - Will face Tarleton (yes, they beat Belmont & BC) for Paradise Jam title
Fairleigh Dickinson 93, VMI 89 - Battle of cupcake opponents
Texas A&M 67, Loyola 51 - Bryce Golden w/ 0 points, 1 board, and a turnover in 11 minutes
Georgetown 69, La Salle 62 - Hoyas still bad, but Explorers worse
Memphis 62, VCU 47 - LOL
I watched a lot of it. they didn't look good offensively. not sure if Memphis defense deserves the credit or not. sloppy game.I didn't see the VCU score till later in the evening but judging from the quietness on social media, I assumed VCU got their ass*s handed to them.
