Is there a better coach anywhere than Jay Wright? Despite the unexpected loss of Spellman and DiVincenzo to the draft, the Cats are 19-4, undefeated in the Big East, and riding an eleven game win streak. This might be his best coaching job yet.

bison75, as a Nova fan since I was around 14-15 years old, I could not agree more. I have no idea of how they will perform in the BE Tournament or NCAA Tournament, but overall, I have been pleasantly surprised. He recruits quality players who buy into his system. I hope that he is Nova Head Coach until he retires unless of course, he wants to return to Lewisburg!

I don't think it's a coincidence that Jay and Dabo Swinney have combined to win 4 of the last 6 championships in their sports. In an era where players expect more from a coach, both have been able to build cultures where the player-coach relationship is a two-way street. It's refreshing to watch both interact with their players. Early attrition may make it harder for Villanova to maintain its elite status nationally, but I agree, Jay is one of the best in the business.

Monmouth has moved into 1st place in the MAAC with an 8-4 record. Pretty impressive, given that they started the season 0-12 before upsetting Penn just before league play started.

Canisius is tied for 2nd at 7-4.

Vermont has gone 15-2 since losing at home to the Bison.

Northeastern is in 2nd place in the CAA with an 8-3 league record.

La Salle has won four A-10 games in a row to move to 5-4 in league play. Not bad after starting the season 0-9.

Bona has been up-and-down, but got a good road win the other night at Duquesne to move to 5-4 in A-10 play.

Included in that Northeastern 8-3 record is the win vs Hofstra last week which snapped the Prides longest in the nation 16 game winning streak. Hofstra had defeated Northeastern in the team’s earlier meeting.

Not sure if you guys want to start a bracketology thread yet, but thought I’d share that USA Today currently has us a 16 seed playing Tennessee in Columbia.
