I am projecting somewhere between 6-8 wins including one bad loss (GW Home) and one surprise win (Richmond away). Then a 1-1 Conference Tournament...

at SLU - L
LaSalle - W
at Dayton - L
at SBU - L
GW - L
at GM - L
Dukes - W
SJU - W
at Davidson - L
at Rhody - L
GM - W
Dayton - L
SLU - L
at Fordham - W
VCU - L
at Richmond -W
at LaSalle - W
Rhody - L


Not to over simplify this, but this team is going to struggle in many games with foul trouble; and it will be compounded by the fact that they are not a great foul shooting team themselves.

This season is all about maturing and bonding. Regardless of the W/L this year, I am excited to watch this develop and come together.

Not for nothin' but I am 7-0 so far - I wonder what our own "sport's psychic" I mean "psychotic" has for a w/l record at this point :roll: I will caveat my opening comment about the GW loss being bad - it was not intended to mean getting blown out, only that it would be a loss to a team we were favored to beat!
Gotta tip my hat to you here, losing at home to GW but beating Duq at home isn't easy to predict. If you're right and they win all 3 remaining road games but lose all remaining home games, this would probably go down as the most amazing prediction I've ever seen.

Wow, I do hope you put some $$ on this.

It looks like a W @Richmond is not too likely, but a perfect record is a lot less likely.

Pretty good? I can't do better than 11-0!!!!!


The two predictions left that I have the most doubt about are SLU at home and at Richmond.... I think I have the rest nailed.
In Matt McCall I trust!

I'll take a split on those 2.

GW beat Mason yesterday, which is a good result for us at it keeps Mason a game behind for the bottom 4. We're in the driver's seat to avoid the Wednesday game, but our two most winnable games are on the road (at Fordham and LaSalle) and the road has not been kind.

St. Joe's won a game! They beat Davidson, and coupled with our win over SLU, 2 teams that started with such high expectations both drop to 7-6 in the conference. VCU, with even higher expectations, seems likely to join them at 7-6 as they trail Dayton tonight.

^ St Joe won without their leading scorer (Daly), and trailed 40-21 at the half. Davidson is tough to figure out this year - win at St Bonaventure by 30, then 4 days later blow a 19 point lead to a 4-21 team

I had to post this somewhere. The most ridiculous stat I have ever seen in BB. Dayton beat Davidson by 15 tonight. They were 27 for 28 on two point shots. Not free throws, 2 point shots. That has to be an NCAA record.

Wow! Crutcher had the only miss.
