RE: 2018 CUSA Tourney Bracket
Looks to me like ODU and Middle are the teams to beat. I’d love for our guys to be in the conversation but dang those 2 are playing lights out. Middle all year and ODU outta nowhere.
Our game with ODU should hopefully be a battle.

Whatever it was that got into the ODU team over the past 2-3 weeks, our coaching staff needs to figure out a way to bottle it. Next week's games will be a huge test for us.

RE: 2018 CUSA Tourney Bracket
I said it last week and I will say it again this week, ODU is playing the best ball in the league right now. If the tournament started today, ODU would beat everyone in the league including MT by at least 10.

Question is can they keep up this level of play for three more weeks?

Yep, hoping its not just a short term hot streak. When we hit a decent percentage on 3s, we are tough to beat. We had bad shooting nights, unfortunately, against WKY and MTSU.....some of that was defense related tho.

We have been on fire since That LT fan said he wasnt impressed with ODU. Keep it up!

Far and away? I don't think so. ODU barely won vs Marshall at home, Marshall beat Middle at home, first WKU game was a fluke and the beginning of the flu and injury disaster we had which carried into ODU. Second game could have gone either way at WKU. On a neutral floor, Marshall has just as much chance to win this tourney as ODU or WKU. While Middle is the favorite, in no way is WKU or ODU "far and away" better.

ODU wasup 20+ in that game and let up thinking it was over. If I was a Marshall fan, Iwould not look too fondly pf that game


Marshall is a good offensive team. They do not look close to the top 3 in conference. They are roughly 100 while the top 3 are top 50

For as much as we're patting ourselves on the back for this weekend. All we really managed to do, unfortunately, is drop 5 spots in the RPI. We should have scheduled much stronger in the OOC.

I hope ODU wins at Marshall just so it doesn't take some of the excitement away from the Western vs ODU game on Sr night. But I call it now...Marshall by 6 at home. Hope I'm wrong

If you win out you will end the regular season around 60. We encourage you to do that.

If that happens then our Quadrant 1 record will likely be 3-3.

ODU doesn't scare me at all. Congratz on the 82-76 win in Norfolk. That game was played with Jon Elmore and Jarrod West with the flu, Ajdin Penava didn't play because he was hurt in the WKU game a week earlier. Also Marshall is a different team at home.

Some of you guys were talking about the tourney, which is a neutral court, right?

We just played with flu guys this week and won by a combined 75 points or something so i dont reallyput much stock in excuses.

Whether ODU scares you or not, its pretty clear they are the better team. If 6 point losses float your boat, i guess almost every team you have beaten in the last month could say marshall doesnt scare them. Ypu guys lost to UTSA and snuck by some bad teams.

We were hit with the flu this week. Maybe we need to get the flu more often.

Agreed that Marshall will be tougher at home and at full strength.

But I would put much hope in the 6 point loss in Norfolk. The final score was mere window dressing. The game was never really in doubt.

It might not have been close for about 39 minutes a game with a two point lead and 35 seconds left...is always in doubt

Man, whatever happens this is good for the conference. Whoever wins or gets ibto the dance or nit needs to take care of things. Any season a team gets into the top4 of this conference can be lethal.

On the other hand, if we win out, WKU probably is not top 60. They'd have to lose to us at home.

Western is going to finish in the high 50's to low 60's so long as they don't lose to UAB or Charlotte (even if they lose to both ODU and MT). If they win out they can climb as high as low to mid 40s and you guys would still stay in the top 75 so long as you don't lose to anyone else.

None of that includes the conference tournament though. That makes projections a little more complicated.

RE: 2018 CUSA Tourney Bracket
UTSA finished last season with a 266 RPI, and I predicted we'd be within the top 200 this season. Despite being without Forward Adrian Rodriguez for the whole season, we're currently at a 193 RPI with 4 games remaining; home against USM and LA Tech, and away against UNT and Rice. Hope we'll hold or move up.

I'll predict right now that next season - and anyone is welcome to revisit when the time arrives - we'll finish in the top 100 RPI, and will then lose Coach Henson unless we give him a more lucrative contract.

Updated today. Correct me if i'm wrong, but it looks like:

-Western still has the tiebreaker over ODU via head to head.
-FAU has the tiebreaker over FIU since they have a better overall record after the season split.
