I'm watching JC Show and his Binghamton team play at St. John's and Show looks really good. Binghamton is running their offense through him. It would have been nice to see him stay at Bucknell.

It's hard to say how his game would have fit with Coach Davis's offense. He certainly wouldn't be starting at the point over Brown. And if he had stayed O'Reilly wouldn't be here. No regrets.

I am on BucknellBisonfan21's side on this one. I think Show would definitely be starting for this team and would be a potential All-PL player at SG. Jmo.

Show is averaging over 18 points a game so far, despite only 4 points this week in a lopsided loss to VCU (81-42). He is playing 32 minutes a game and shooting over 50% from the field.

But he moved on.... don't really care to play the "what if" game with transfers.

A couple of interesting tidbits about Binghamton: What a crazy schedule! They play St. John's and VCU, then an NAIA school I never heard of-- Ave Maria University! Their nickname is the Gyrenes. Huh? Ave Maria was founded by Domino's Pizza exec Tom Monaghan and is near Naples, FL. Now you know!

The other crazy thing on the Binghamton Bearcats basketball site is this: They put this in writing-- they are in first place in the America East Conference at 0-0 league record. You can look it up!! (Glass is half full I guess....)

Go Bison!

Any thoughts on why the transfer to Binghamton? Good school but based on the one horrible year my son spent there, not a great student experience and terrible basketball program. So little to do, my son had 4.0 GPA-highest of his academic career. LOL that studying was his top activity.

Definitely a good win - on the road against a UNI team that was ranked #69 (Pomeroy) prior to the loss. This was by far their best win, as the other three were vs opponents ranked worse than #200.

Had serious case of plantar fasciitis. Also had a stress fracture in his foot at the end of the season. I think he had some surgical procedure while sitting out last year. Wouldn't be surprised if this latest surgery is related to the foot problems.

Tough break for Watson and for Creighton, who is 18-1 and ranked 7th in the nation. Watson is a 5th year senior, so his college career is over. He is a long shot for the NBA, so he will likely be playing in Europe next year, or maybe the D-league, although he nay not be ready for the start of the season depending on his rehab.

Rider was probably smart to walk off immediately after the game, as there was real potential for a brawl breaking out. As it was, some Siana fans threw various objects at the Rider players, and a Rider coach almost got into a fight with a so-called fan.

I believe one player from each team was ejected for a Flagrant 2, and at least one Siena player appeared to leave the bench and will be facing suspension.

Fortunately Dom was not one of the people throwing punches. Dom, by the way, is their director of player development, whatever that is. The manager of basketball operations is Chandler Fraser-Pauls, who went to Lafayette to play both soccer and basketball. He quickly found out that playing two major sports was too much, and he gave up basketball during his freshman year at Lafayette.

Great job by Jamion Christian, holding them together after enduring what may have been the nation's toughest ooc schedule.

Another team playing quite well is Wake. This week they beat a good Miami team and then a good NC State team to move up to 35th in the Pomeroy rankings. When they met the Bison, they were 73rd.

Don't agree that the Siena loss is a bad loss. We were not favored in that one. True they have regressed since then, and we have advanced, so maybe it IS a bad loss. I am not there yet.

Siena regressed (badly) after the BU game, losing four in a row - three to mediocre teams - amidst a lot of team dissension. But since then, they have won five of six MAAC games, although none against the top teams. Their star soph Nico Clareth has quit the team (maybe pushed out) and they have improved due to the change.

Siena is currently tied for 3rd in the MAAC. Monmouth is clearly the top team right now, but Siena could finish anywhere from 2nd through 7th.

There have been some interesting stories over the past six weeks involving Bison ooc opponents:

1. Wake was 73rd in the nation (Pomeroy) when they met the Bison. Moved to 50th by Christmas and has moved to 33rd since then - firmly on the bubble. They are 7-9 in the tough ACC, with #51 Syracuse their worst loss. Will need to beat either Louisville or VA Tech this week - or win at least one ACC tournament game - to get a bid.

2. Vandy - Was ranked 43rd before playing the Bison and 69th after. Fell as low as 77th but has now moved up to 43rd after consecutive wins over Texas A&M, South Carolina, Tennessee, and MS State. Also have wins over #7 Florida (on the road), #23 Iowa State, and #41 Arkansas. Firmly on the bubble, with very tough games left vs Kentucky and Florida.

3. Butler was #27 when they faced the Bison. Moved up as high as 15 but then lost two and dropped to 25th. Now back to #20 after four straight Big East wins, including a huge win at Villanova and another at Xavier.

4. Mount St. Mary's - Won the NEC regular season title with a 14-4 record. Was #271 when they faced the Bison. Now #214.

5. Norfolk State - Record was 1-12 in early January vs D1 teams. Since then they have gone 12-2, ranking second in the MEAC. Granted that is a very weak conference but still a nice turnaround.

6. Princeton - Ranked 80th when the faced the Bison. Counting that game, they have now won 13 straight games. They are 12-0 in the Ivy, with home games vs Harvard and Dartmouth remaining. Unfortunately for them, the Ivy now has a postseason tournament for the first time.

7. Richmond is now 11-5 in the A-10, tied for 3rd of the 14 teams. Their only two "bad" league losses were two to GMU, who is now 9-9 and tied for 6th, 7th, and 8th place.

One of my other favorite teams, Vermont, went 16-0 in the America East and 26-5 overall. Unfortunately, their 47 RPI probably will not get them an at-large if they lose their tournament. Their best wins are Harvard and Yale at home. Their only losses were to Butler, Providence, South Carolina, Houston (by 1), and Northeastern (by 2).

Would love the see Bucknell play them some day.

Belmont the favorite to get out of the OVC lost. They were projected to be a 12/13 seed. So obviously we would benefit from this loss if we win the Tourney


Just watched that game, now are at least eight conference champs we would be seeded ahead of: OVC, NEC, Summit, MEAC, SWAC, Big Sky, Southland, Big West. Two more to assure a 14, six for a 13. There are ten conferences with only one team left who could be seeded ahead of us: Winthrop, Fla Gulf Coast, ETSU, Monmouth, Valpo, Vermont, Akron, Mid Tenn St, UT Arlington & Princeton. Any of these who lose helps us should we win the Patriot.

That said, one step at a time. JUST BEAT NAVY!

Wake beat #8 Louisville tonight. They were on the bubble, so that may be enough to assure them a spot.

Also Princeton took out Harvard to move them within one game (Dartmouth) of an undefeated Ivy season.

Mount St. Mary's beat RMU by nine to advance to the NEC final. St. Francis won the other semi with a wild three at the buzzer. Too bad. I always root against them after their treatment of Don Friday.

They aren't expected to get an at large. I was watching the game and the commentators said that if they don't win the MAAC they would not have enough to get an at large and would go to the NIT again. Joe Lunardi had them as a 13 seed, which isn't a spot at larges can get

Yes, they don't have a real good RPI (around #52). and they don't have the quality wins they had last year. Their only top 100 win was over Princeton. Also not a strong SOS. NIT again.

While he had a great game, a key turnover by Marquis Wright in final min of regulation really hurt. I watched the final 10:00 and it was a good game.

With Monmouth and Valpo down we are now almost assured of at worst a 14 seed. Bracket Matrix has FGCU and Winthrop behind us as well, but I am not certain about that. Still to watch: Vermont, Akron, Mid Tenn St, UT Arlington & Princeton (at least two up to four need to lose to get us on the 13 line.)

Go Bison! Beat the Engineers (can't switch).

After losing to the Bison, they were 1-11. Since then they have gone 18-4.

Their ooc schedule ranks 6th in the nation.

Great comeback for George Mason tonight over Fordham. Mason pulled off a 7-1 run at the end of regulation to send it to overtime, which they dominated.

And check out this highlight moment from Bryson Johnson

GMU ended up losing by 11. They may have an outside shot at the NIT, but I think a pay-for-play is the likely destination.

Final was 73-58 and Loyola led by more than that for much of the second half. Amazingly they did it with All-PL PG Andre Walker coming off the bench and only playing 24 minutes. No idea as to the reason.

To me, this is largely due to the higher seeds being disappointed about not making the NCAA's and not being as hungry as the lower seeded teams. Like when Bucknell defeated Arizona. Taking nothing away from the Bison, but it seemed like Arizona was something les than 100% committed to full focus and drive. We already know that the gap is shrinking among good power conference schools and really good mid majors.
