That long ally oop in the LIU Brooklyn game was pretty sick.

Montana had a ridiculous second half against Weber. Couldn't miss from 3.

that's before Bucknell lost though right?

or is it not? Really don't see Lehigh just sliding in where Bucknell was.. as some people on the other board are pointing out SPC got a 14 last year... and that's coming in as the 4th seed in the MAAC, must mean they respect our conference a bit.

Can't say I'd be disappointed b/c I still can't get over how awesome it is that we are dancing, but it would hurt a little bit to see us as anything higher than a 14 come Sunday now.

Lunardi updated his bracket but didn't bump Loyola up. Still a 15 vs Duke. He just slipped Lehigh into Bucknell's spot vs Baylor.

I can actually see Loyola being a team the big guys don't want to play. In those first round games, there's usually a lot of nerves. Loyola plays a very tough frenetic defense which can really rattle a team unprepared for it. It also can keep the score close enough to stay in striking distance.

I don't disagree, but I feel that the way the cinderallas win these games (or push it to the buzzer) is by shooting the lights out behind the arc. And we just don't have that in the arsenal.

34% on the season...

Good for T-186th in the nation.

Olson's the only true threat at 44%

The rest follows so:
Cormier 32%
Walker?! 32%
Winbush 29%
Hall 28% (but he won't play)
Etherly 3-11 or 27%
Drummond 25%
Williams 24%

I don't think he was kidding.

Olson is our only legitimate threat, and if Fairfield can shut him down behind the arc I feel a Top 10 team will as well.

True that stats stand for what they are. But we hit big time 3s WHEN IT COUNTS. Let's just use Winbush as the perfect example.

There are 3 kinds of lies - lies, damn lies, and statistics. I would feel comfortable with Olson, Cormier, Drummond, Hall, Walker, or Winbush taking a GOOD 3. I think any of them are capable of hitting it at a decent %age. I think those #'s get dragged down significantly by the numerous times where we run a stagnant offense and hoist a forced 3 as the shot clock runs down. If we can get a good look in the course of a real offensive scheme, I'm good with those guys. Additionally, when Winbush or Walker hit the 3, it forces the defense to guard further out which opens things up more inside for Etherly. The flip side is, you have to recognize when the shot just isn't falling and don't try to force what's not working.
