    Thoughts? Tom's pretty loaded up but is replacing some really big shoes.

    Some big news out of IUP regarding the women's team:

    Virginia State was originally scheduled to play at IUP. That game is now off the schedule. IUP replaced them with nationally-ranked Glenville State. The game will be on a Friday night in mid-November at the KCAC. It's the same night the men play up at Le Moyne.

    As far as the Atlantic Region goes, that's by far the 'marquee' non-conference game of the season.


    Also, the women will start the season in the Memorial Field House for their first two games (Nov. 9-10). The men's kick-off weekend will take place inside the KCAC.

    Joe's team has no games scheduled at the Field House this year.

    I guess some coaches find losing at least mildly agreeable or you would not have any coaches in place at least half of the PSAC schools. LOL.

    10. Virginia Union

    AnnMarie Gilbert is another DII women's basketball coach that seemingly hates to lose.

    10. Virginia Union




    11. IUP

    The Crimson Hawks have been to the last two Elite Eights, reaching the semifinals both times. Most of those players are gone, but intriguing transfers Justine Mascaro (Delaware) and Kiara Wade (Wheeling), as well as freshman Maria Cerro, could mesh with the experienced returners and get IUP back to the top of the rankings once again.


    22. Glenville State

    The Pioneers scored an absurd 102.3 points per game last season, and four of their top five scorers are back, including Emily Stoller and ReShawna Stone.


    Just Missed Category: California

    The Vulcans lose their top three scoring starters, including Seairra Barrett who led the team in scoring and rebounding. Still, two starters return and Cal always seems to find its way into both the win column and top 25. The Vulcans could very well be there before too long.


    Teams to Watch Category: Edinboro

    Is there a slight difference in keeping male assistants versus females. For all the traditional reasons if the rest of their lives are stable and family oriented, women seem more content to stay in a successful positions than strive to optimize their prospects. Oddly in the PSAC most WBB HC in the West are men and in the East women.

    I would add Chris Fite and Lamont Paris on the men's side and Justin English and Melissa O'Neil for the women on the list.

They've been together since '13-'14 and really seem to have a seamless style with the team. Maybe it's an XX thing.

    To me it's just a matter of when they leave ... not if. On the men's side we're lucky to have an assistant two years. D2 assistant jobs are primarily resume builders for the next job. The pay is lousy and most want to take that next step.

    She's a big loss but the show goes on.

    It was ... as much as an assistant leaving can be headline news. It got a little play on here but I think everybody knew it was just a matter of time.
