    IUP ladies survive in Edinboro, 66-63.

    Hawks nearly blew a 15 point, second half lead.

    Dang ... somebody went on quite the Twitter rant on the IUP women's page today.

    I'm 'assuming' this was pointed toward last years much-hyped freshmen class ... which, collectively, has seen its playing time turn in to a pumpkin the past 5-6 games.

    I certainly saw this upheaval coming ... actually surprised it took so long.

    Ever since the debacle of a win at District of Columbia (39-34), Tom has pretty much went with a straight 6-man rotation. One of the six, however, is having a pretty rough season.

    As a 'loose' follower of the women's team, I really thought last year's class was going to be full of superstars. It may still turn out to be in the coming years. However, Tom essentially burying them deep down the bench mid-way through this season probably isn't a great sign.

    Tom's job is to win games. That's the bottom line. He determines who plays and who doesn't. He's also won two straight regional titles and is currently 14-1. It's his show. But, when you have a rotation player really struggling -- and four hyped-up recruits riding pine -- this kind of stuff will surface ... even on probably the most drama-free team on the planet.

    Beleive it or not ... asking non-D2 fans to drive to Erie to watch a D2 game ... isn't an easy sell. Lol
    I'm all about chasing D2 games but I have to chase them in the opposite directions of you. hahaha

    Gary puts the time in ... gotta give him that much. I was laughing Saturday when somebody said he's a season ticket holder at GU.

    He should have asked Joe for a seat on the bench. Guest pass.

    Won't name names but Tom continues to play a certain player who is contributing nothing to this team. I don't get it.
    I have seen this at other schools, more talent on the bench than on the court. It's a shame to waste good kids on the bench.

    Gannon had 1,200 for the Edinboro doubleheader. Women had 800 ish. I think people just want to see some basketball.

    Tom won a tremendous game tonight. IUP was down by 13 late in the third period and ended up winning by 13.

    They got abused for 30 of the 40 minutes but just (barely) hung around ... then owned the final quarter.

    I can see why Lock Haven entered leading the East. That's a good team. If their coaches learn how to call timeouts and halt runs ... they could be very good.

    Tom has some issues. The record doesn't show it at 11-1 but they have some major work to be done. The PG position is, well, messy.

    Side note: both games oddly had big crowds tonight. The women's crowd was way more jacked up (and bigger). They have a nice following.

    Looks like Tom is hitting on all cylinders after some trial and error earlier in the season. The rotation seems set.

    Justina Mascaro also had a real breakout game at Shippensburg, going for 32 points and 11 rebounds.

    He tried working in many of last year's hyoed up recruiting class but their minutes have come way down.

    They enter the break at 10-1 and have won 8 straight. This edition had to find itself but has tremendous upside. They are big, deep and athletic -- and only giving up 52 ppg.

    This is a team built for another deep run.

    And many of the key players are sophomores.
