    In response to 84grad

While I am impressed by your thoughtfulness and solid overall knowledge, I have a couple of minor quibbles. The first is that your opening paragraph sounds an awful lot like the foundation for rationalizing an eventual loss tomorrow. (We've already accomplished our goal; the rest is gravy.) No, the way things are currently structured, nobody has accomplished anything except getting within a couple of games of accomplishing something. I agree completely with everything you said about The Cathedral and the justice of a true playoff, but that's not the way it is.

Regarding your game analysis, I think you have misinterpreted Antonio Woods's role. Yes, he is an elite defender, but he is not likely to be covering Aiken most of the time. My guess is that Devon Goodman, with his superior quickness, will get that assignment. Second, Woods's scoring is not all that critical. Again, it will likely fall more upon Goodman's shoulders to open things up for Brodeur inside by hitting from outside. Antonio was spectacular against Yale last week offensively, but that was his career game. If Goodman is cold, we'll have to hope Jackson Donahue, Bryce Washington (who has largely disappeared lately), Michael Wang (also MIA the last couple months), or Antonio again can step up. If not, we're in big trouble.

Overall, this game is a toss up.
