    Interesting since East Stroudsburg is basically picked middle-of-the-road in the preseason PSAC coaches poll. Obviously, none of it means a thing at this point.

      ESU was picked first in the East Coaches' Poll.

        Some big games on tap this week. Don't fall for the old 'it's early' trap. While the calendar says November, the outcomes of these games come in to play, big time, in March. Historically, you can only lose 8 if you want to go dancing. If a team has any hopes of hosting the Regional ... probably 1-3 losses. Max.


        Men's

        Bowie State at Shippensburg - One of these two good teams is going to pick up its second loss. Bowie also plays a new-look Gannon team this week.

        Mercyhurst at Daemen - Interesting week for Daemen. In this one, they'll have to contend with Mercyhurt's defense and slow pace.

        IUP at Le Moyne - Tough road trip for the Crimson Hawks. IUP won a defensive slug-fest in the KCAC a year ago.

        Ohio Dominican at UPJ - A real tough game for UPJ ... but UPJ is a real tough team to play in Johnstown.

        Charleston at Slippery Rock - SRU's tour of top MEC teams continues. This time in Morrow.

        West Liberty at Daemen - Mercyhurst will put Daemen to sleep. West Liberty will make them feel like they've consumed 85 Red Bulls.


        Women's

        Virginia Union at California (This feels like the Atlantic Region Final Four)

        Glenville State at IUP - The Crimson Hawks won by 20 in 2017-18. GSU out for some revenge.

          The result of SHIP-BSU game interests me in view of the VULCANS near upset. It will really clarify how far SANCOMB has moved the needle.
          CAL U WBB will have their hands full with VUU. They did get by a couple of solid MEC contenders on the weekend, but the GOLDEN BULLS are something else altogether.

            Also, since Bowie's loss is to Shepherd, it shows PSAC teams would do well to pay attention to the Rams, who are flying under the radar with a low pick in the preseason polls. They are never an easy out in Shepherdstown.

              They definitely aren't flying under the radar. The EAST is just very deep. Somebody has to be first in those meaningless polls and somebody has to be 6th.

              Shepherd is another solid program in an already very congested East. I'd guess we'll see some serious cannibalization in that division. Better win the home games.

              Not sure there is a dominant team over there ... May be just 5-6 strong, fairly equal teams.

                .
                This is a very good point. The D-I selection committee seems to discount November results in favor of recent play. Division II give these games about equal weight to late February.

                    A little early to tell. I think Ship has to get a little more cohesion with a couple of new guys in the lineup. Kellem and Span had played a lot of minutes for them. On the other hand, I was impressed that they were a couple of points away from taking down a top-drawer CIAA team despite their worst shooting performance in nine years. East Stroud actually had a tougher time over the weekend, but it's only two games in. Should be a dogfight.
