Brown

Solid win over a Brown team that seemed overwhelmed.  big night for freshman point guard O'Hare.  With a win over Columbia this week, they could be 7-8 going into League Play.

A home win over Brown is not, I guess, totally unexpected, but a 24 point blowout is certainly something special for this team.  Nolan apparently switched O'Hare from the point to shooting guard, looking for someone more willing to take the outside shot.  She moved Freeland from the 2 spot to 1.  Looks like it worked.

A secondary benefit might be in the team's major problem area - turnovers.  It's not unusual to have your point guard leading the team in turnovers, but O'Hare is way out in front on a team that is averaging an incredible - and suicidal - 20 per game.  Only 10 yesterday, so let's hope we've seen a turnover turnaround.

If anyone sees this team at the bottom of the Patriot League again this year raise your hand.  I thought not.

Not raising my hand, but I think LC is one of five PL teams that could end up at the bottom.    The league is closer this year than it has been in many years - maybe ever - although I think Navy, AU, and possibly HC are a bit stronger than the other five.

Here is what the Sagarin rankings look like at present for the whole league:


185 . American       65.89
208 . Holy Cross     64.94
209 . Navy             64.92
221 . Bucknell       63.94
224 . Colgate       63.86
227 . Lehigh         63.77
241 . Army           62.11
248 . Lafayette     61.73

And, last, and most certainly least:
248 . Lafayette     61.73


We can always count on this guy.

You mean Sagarin?


The point was to show how closely bunched the teams are - the closest in PL history when measured by Sagarin.   Four points from top to bottom.

I suggest we play a double round-robin schedule then have a single-elimination tournament to see who the best team is.

I agree.    I think Carney may want a quicker answer however.

Declare Lafayette the winner and be done with it.
