I see MU at 10-8 and a 4 or 5 seed, playing FDU!

Ok..I'll start before I moderate a bevy of comments I have received...

MU can't lose every road game can it?

Aside from the fatal five minutes Monday, MU played maybe its best NEC game of the year..of course those last five minutes still count...

I have seen all the NEC teams and I believe MU can play with any of them..

If Bunch continues to range from effective to dominant I see MU going 5-2 in some break down of home and away games...Maybe I'm overshooting here but they are capable...Yes, I am taking into consideration turnovers and foul shooting..

That leaves it at 10-8 and I believe good enough for a fourth seed and hosts..fifth place - uh, oh - Robert Morris.

I still say 9-9(7th seed)and they will play FDU.

I would say they finish 5-2 in the games remaining, and finish in 5th (losses to Wagner and CCSU). They will make it to the championship but be slaughtered by CCSU.

MU student..if they lose this game to Wagner..which is making a run winning four of its last five....I don't see any shot at 5-2. (which is also what I picked)..

Wags last five games -


1/22/2007 Long Island Staten Island, NY W 88-74
1/25/2007 at Mount St. Mary's Emmitsburg, MD L 70-80

I agree with you Tony. MU can go 5-2 the rest of the way. We've really turned a corner and once Deki gets back in the zone with his 3's, we're golden. I don't think it matters who we play in the tournament...I still think we can pull this season out! Let's go HAWKS!!!!!

Also, any chance that MU will run a bus to any more away games? Wagner would have been a great one to go to on Thursday. Maybe LIU?

Re bus - I'll ask. Probably how they fare in next two games would be a consideration.

If there's a bus to LIU I wouldn't mind being on it.

As I have often mentioned..that ride to Brooklyn..yuk.

Tony,
I've been grinding the numbers a little more.If MU can finish 10-8 they have a good chance for a 4 seed if:They beat SHU at home and beat MSM on the road.Also RMU can't get hot and needs to finish 10-8.

4)MU-10-8--4-1 vs 10-8 teams
5)SHU-10-8-4-2............
6)MSM-10-8-2-4.............
7)RM--10-8-1-4..........
Here are our next 4 road opponents records at home:
1)WAG-4-2
2)LIU-2-5
3)MSM-5-1
4)SFPA-0-5
Here are our next 3 home opponents record on the road:
1)FDU-4-2
2)CCSU-5-1
3)SHU-3-3
