    Edinboro was the #6 Atlantic Region team this week. They lost in the first round of the PSAC tournament to Gannon. I would say Charleston at 7 would move ahead of them with today's win. The winner of this 2/3 semi final will be a lock in the NCAA as it will be a regionally ranked win for whoever wins and gives them 2 wins this week.

    Cal was at 3, IUP at 4 and Bloomsburg at 10. All three are in the PSAC semis. Kutztown is the only unranked team left in the PSAC. Virginia Union was 1 and is a lock to make it. Bowie State was 5 and will make it.

    The MEC has now a decent chance to get 3 teams in the NCAA tournament with the Edinboro loss. A stretch would be 4 teams in . The lone problem would be the UC/Concord loser may not make it especially if Concord loses as they came in this week at 9. Probably need Glenville to lose in the semis to get 4 in. Ideal situation for MEC is that Kutztown and Bloomsburg lose in PSAC semis.

    #4 West Lib defeats #5 Notre Dame 84-77. It sets up a women's semi with four regionally ranked teams

    Hoping that win is enough to cement WLU's slot in the National Tourney. Sitting on that 8 line in the Regional Rankings is so nerve-wracking. I don't suspect we'll get any major Cinderella's on the women's side. VUU/Glenville/IUP/Cal are likely going to take these tourneys, and they're all already in. So, hopefully a good win last night is enough to hang onto that 8 spot. Even a loss tomorrow to Glenville shouldn't be a killer, as it's a loss to a TOP team. We'll see. And the prize for hanging on to that 8 slot? A chance to head to a bandbox in Richmond and face Goliath! Ugh.

    Edinboro was ranked 6th this week in the region and lost at home this week to a team with a losing record in Gannon. They went 0-1 this week.

    West Lib was #8 ranked in the region this week and just defeated a team that finished the year with a winning record. #9 Concord and #7 UC won yesterday over teams that had a losing record, but they won on a neutral floor.

    Regional committees are a little quirky at times, but I think West Lib and UC should be safe unless an at-large wins the PSAC.

    I'd put the odds of that happening at about 2 percent. Maybe less.

    I don't follow women's basketball...AT ALL. But generally I would think Boro's loss to Gannon coupled with WLU and Concord's run to the MEC Tourney Semi's should result in Boro falling out of the NCAA Playoff Picture in favor of WLU and Concord.

    Boro played their way out. Plain and simple. If they do slide in it's a blessing for them.

    At the half: #2 Fairmont State leads #7 Shepherd by a score of 34-28. Rams need Lang to heat up a bit.

    Turned on the game a little bit ago here in the office. The live webcast is fantastic.

    This FSU/Shep game is unfortunately a good example of neutral site day games during the business day. It looks like there's less than 150 people in there.

    Fairmont storms out to a 10-0 run to start the second half and lead 44-28.

    The MEC has great mult-media. Not surprised as that was Reid Amos speciality. My video keeps freezing up at work, but it may be my wireless. The broadcasts and video have been excellent.

    Shepherd should have left at halftime.

    Getting real ugly.

    The blowout is happening....65-36 with 9:44 left. Namolik gets a technical. A great guy, but I wonder if his days are numbered over there. They look like they have checked out.

    Dreadful performance ... look like they'd rather be at the dentist (and I noticed that long before the run-away started).

    76-39...and Mazzulla shows mercy with over five minutes to play and empties the bench.

    81-54 final as Fairmont State advances. Shepherd scored most of their points that half in the final five minutes. I think Fairmont State got every loose ball and every 50/50 ball in the first 15 minutes of that half. Last Shepherd basketball game in small college basketball in WV. An end of an era. This certainly wasn't a team that resembled the Bob Starkey teams of old.....Rodney Sewell, Mike Philippi, Antoine Makle, Bobby Chuey, etc.

    I have a feeling the only game all day that will be any good to watch is the night-cap between Charleston and Concord. I could see these next two also being blowouts.

    And with that blowout, Shepherd has left the MEC building. It will be interesting seeing how they stack-up against the PSAC next year because they didn't stack up to well against the MEC.
