Was talking with a friend and he was telling me about a free score update/messaging app called Scorestream. If fans want to chat/message during games that looks like a possibility.

I would be interested in trying that for some away games if there is enough interest.


Meanwhile, there were three PL games today:

1. HC was blown out by Manhattan in Northern Ireland.

2. Army, who was a slight favorite, beat UMBC at home by 11 points. Tommy Funk, Andrew's brother, led Army in scoring.

3. Navy, who was a slight favorite, beat Delaware at home by 6 points. Bryce Dulin had a career-high 30 points for the Mids, and Shawn Anderson had 20.

Colgate blew a late lead at Binghamton with a 4+ minute scoreless stretch. Now down 11 under a minute. Show has 19 points including an individual 7-0 run.

Pomeroy's current projections of wins for the PL season:

Bucknell 14.1
Army 11.2
Colgate 10.3
Navy 10.0
Lehigh 9.9
Boston U 8.1
Loyola MD 6.9
Lafayette 6.6
American 6.5
Holy Cross 6.5


I would expect Army and maybe LC to end up with fewer wins. Also I expect Boston U, maybe American (assuming good health), and maybe HC to get more. As for Loyola, if they get healthy, I'd vote for more wins. But if Walker is out for the year, I'd expect less than 6.9.

Some might be surprised at the thought of American winning 7 or more games - especially given their current 2-5 record - but I think that record may be misleading, with several factors possibly making them better than was expected. First, their very good sophomore center Mark Gasperini has yet to play due to a concussion. Secondly, their transfer SF Larry Motuzis is averaging 17.9 ppg with a very good FG pct. Also their FOY candidate, SF Sam Iorio, has missed recent games due to illness. And juco transfer Cheikh Diallo has been giving them good minutes - perhaps more than was expected.

The other 8 PL teams (besides BU & BU) are playing tonight. Navy is the only winner so far. Everyone else lost or is trailing.

Colgate hit a 3/4 court length shot at the buzzer which would have beaten Marist; however, it came 0.1 or 0.2 seconds too late.

On that play, Marist was inbounding with 0.6 seconds left. They threw a pass out just beyond halfcourt that was intercepted by Colgate guard Sean O'Brien. He put up a shot that hit nothing but net. But it's hard, in less than 0.6 seconds, to catch a pass coming at you from under the basket and then build up enough momentum to reach that basket from almost 50 feet away. The refs reviewed the video and decided the shot was released after the buzzer.

Updated Pomeroy projections for PL wins:


bucknell . 14.0
army . . 11.7
navy . . 10.5
colgate . 10.3
lehigh . 10.0
boston . 7.9
lafayette 6.6
loyola . 6.5
holy cross 6.3
american 6.2


Army beat Air Force by 25 points Sunday to advance their stock. And Navy had an away win vs Columbia the same day. Holy Cross lost by 14 points tonight at home to a hot-shooting Iona team.

Btw, Andre Walker has returned from injury, so Loyola may be stronger than their record suggests. They are still missing Andrew Kostecka - not sure of his injury - and they lost Chancellor Barnard for the year.

Wiped...equivalent to "schooled" or in the immortal words of one Kevin Pollins...long ago of Dewitt Clinton H.S. in the Bronx. the Bonnies "served them...served them all"

With Thomas averaging almost 23 points per game (22.9), I was wondering when the last time was that a Bison came out of the OOC portion of the schedule averaging 20+ points per game? I cannot remember anybody in recent memory.

I imagine it's Chris Simpson in 1993-94. He averaged 20.5 ppg for the entire season on a very high-scoring team. That team, for example, had six games with 98+ points. If it wasn't Simpson, then the next possible candidate would be Patrick King, who averaged over 20 ppg his senior year. Muscala, btw, didn't come close to a 20 ppg average in OOC play.


Here's one item of trivia: The last PL player to average 22 or more ppg for a full season was Brett Eppenheimer (Lehigh) in 1997-98. It was never done by McCollum, Muscala, Kempton, Sprink, etc. I doubt Zach can sustain that pace either - especially if they get some blow-out PL games where he plays limited minutes.

Loyola gets a much needed win over Drexel. Navy, Boston, Lehigh, & American all lose.

Loyola is finally getting healthier. Walker is back and now Kostecka has returned as well. Cam Gregory had 16 rebounds tonight - averaging about 10 rpg for the year. Despite their record, I think Loyola will be very competitive in most league games.

This is a stunner. Wofford did what the Bison couldn't.

As we head into league season, here is a highlight package of one of the most remarkable PL games of all time - Army coming from 25 points back in the final 12 minutes to win at Navy in the star game. Andrew Funk's brother was in for most of it.

Boston wins handily over Army at home.
Lehigh struggled at Lafayette, but pulled out a 5 point win.
Colgate pulled away in the 2nd half to win at Holy Cross.
Loyola upset Navy by 9 at home.
