    Couple of upsets in the MEC tonight:

    Concord 89. WVSU 75.
    Urbana 74. Wheeling 67.

    Charleston avoids the near-upset with a one-point victory over Glenville.

    Everything else chalk.

        Back from the Ship game. The Raiders will have to get their shooting eyes back to make a run in the tourney. Three games in a row that they've been off. Biss had a below-average night and Castello played only 23 minutes — he was poked in the eye and missed several minutes in the first half, then had a ticky-tack foul called for his third early in the second half and sat out quite a while. Defense won the game. Shepherd, which averages 12 made 3s a game, was held to four. That was keyed by Lamar Talley's defense on Thomas Lang. Lang, who averages four 3s and 17 points a game, was held scoreless. It was senior night and Coach Fite started the four seniors. That was a classy move, but it seemed to throw off the rotation for a while. Carlos Carter never did get into the flow of the game and scored only three. Luke Nedrow helped save the offense with 16 points. I've never seen a kid have more shots roll in and out of the basket than he's had this season, and a few of them finally dropped for him tonight. He picked up his fourth foul with about eight minutes to go, so that got a little tense. Ship opponent shot more FTs than Ship in Heiges again. Nobody can accuse Ship of having much of a homecourt advantage in foul calls this season — probably one of the reasons the road record is actually better than at home. Kutztown Saturday and then see who we get next Wednesday.

          Raiders are still just a tick off offensively. Just enough that keeps some suspense in games they were winning by 20 earlier.

            As a senior citizen I can do without the suspense.

              Meanwhile, ESU has won 8 straight, and are looking more deserving of regional consideration. Troy Jones was the star last night, scoring 21 points in 21 minutes off the bench. It's a different guy every night, and that's what makes the Warriors such a tough opponent. They also hit 10 3-pointers for the 11th time this year. They're 10-1 when that happens...

                You're not going to lose many games when you hit 10 three-pointers. The game becomes a lot easier when you make shots.

                  For what it's worth, Notre Dame made 10 threes last night and lost by 14.

                  Sometimes those stats depend upon number of possessions (i.e., in the up-tempo MEC, one of the philosophies is to play fast and increase the number of possessions in the game). In doing so, it becomes entirely possible to earn 30 points on bonus bombs but still have enough empty possessions to lose by 14. That's why Columbuseer always likes to look at points-per-possession as his stat of choice. It helps to look across conferences and compare an up-tempo team to a methodical team reasonably effectively.

                    One thing I will never agree with is not starting seniors on senior night. I dont care if they are walkons who have played 2 mins their entire career or a notorious 6th man. It will not affect the outcome of the game IF the coach plays it right. If you're starting 3 different players than usual then you obviously are not going to expect them to do exactly what your normal starters do. Play it to the strength of those guys that have earned it.. give them 2 minutes if you get down. That's enough to give them what they've earned. Worst case you're down a few points when the starters come in. I'm sorry if they cant overcome a small deficit strong chance is you were going to lose anyways.

                    Now, different story for that is if it's a one or two year player. I dont feel it's as obligatory for them to get a start on Senior night. If the coach feels they should then great, but the 3&4 year players.. definitely should.

                      What team (if any) keeps track of points per possession? It's not a stat I have ever seen in ANY official box score...

                          Columbuseer is the Peter Brand of Moneyball.

                          I have read interviews with WL coach Ben Holand. They keep stats in practice down to the minute. True story.

                          It obviously helps them. WL is an elite program.

                              If you're making 10 threes and losing a ball game, you'd better play slower or play better defense.
