WJU on the other hand is 1-11 with the only W being against PSU-SHENANGO which is in it's first season. They're scoring well enough, averaging 79 PPG but giving up 87 .
    After almost half a season, I'd say the VULCANS have a shot at .500 but would be really surprised if the CARDINALS make it to double digit wins. Time will tell.
    I thought that Sancomb did a good job not panicking after Gannon's surprising quick start. He stayed in the zone and made a few tweaks and held GU to less than a point per minute over the final 30. They are certainly not a terrific team, but certainly have a shot at 4th in the west, which would be a step forward for the program.

    Especially considering the team is made up of 1senior, 3 juniors (who haven't played) and the rest are freshman and sophomores.

    Oh so quietly, WJ has won 3 of their last 4 and have moved oit of the MEC basement. They stand 5-18 on the season.

    At 5 and 7 victories respectively, doesn't look like WJ or Cal has much of a chance of finishing with double digit win totals.

    At most the VULCANS will win 2 of 4 and finish 9-18. Given the circumstances not terrible especially with the experience that was gained by this very young team. If I were to lay out the next step for '19-'20 it would be to finish at or above .500 (there were 4 winnable games that got away) and get a glimpse at the post season for the first time since '13-'14. Time will tell.

    Wheeling is on a nice run right now. They may sneak in to the MEC Tournament.

    They swept UVa-Wise, which is the first tiebreaker. They're almost certainly in. Their lack of depth still hurts them but they have some guys who can play.

    They pretty much play all freshman and are starting to put it together winning 4 out of their last 5. It would be silly to think they aren't going to be pretty good the next couple years if the young core and coach stays put.

    WJ is a quality school with an instant "in" to every Catholic HS. Provided the school gives the BB program the necessary support, no reason they won't be back to "normal" relatively quickly.

    Of course "normal" for them is playing a tough second fiddle to WLU!!!!
