Tough loss for sure, but I agree this team has a good enough resume to easily be in the WNIT. A team with size will still give us problems.

RE: Drexel Women's Basketball 2016-17
Elon currently has an RPI of 27, while JMU is at 39. The fact that they are playing each other tonight should help even the loser a bit. If logic were used for the NCAA Selections, then both teams would be a lock for the NCAA Tournament. But considering that the selections are made by power hungry egomaniacs who don't know basketball, that's not a guarantee.

Hopefully both teams do get in, which would give Drexel the automatic bid to the WNIT. Even if that scenario doesn't take place, Drexel should still be a lock for a WNIT at-large bid anyway. Drexel has had much worse teams in the past couple of years get in.

Agreed on JMU and Elon. Latest bracketology had JMU as one of the first 4 out, with no surprise the last 4 in were all power conference teams and the first 4 out had 3 mids. The womens tournament is extra bad when it comes to mid majors. Other than high RPI's neither Elon or JMU really have the wins, Elon avoided bad losses in conference.

That was a fun championship game to watch. Every CAA WBB fan that doesn't wear purple had to be excited. I fear that JMU is going to become the next ODU, so it was nice to see a strong team come in this year and knock them off. Congrats to Elon.

This game brought back memories from 8 years ago when we all got to celebrate a championship on the JMU floor in front of their arrogant fans walked out.

JMU's RPI dropped just a bit to 41. I hope for the sake of the CAA that they do get in. But if they don't, nobody should feel sorry for them considering that they've been to the NCAA Tournament 5 of the past 7 years. I'm sure they'll be back plenty of times with the time of talent that the bring in.

I'm looking forward to being part of the tournament next year at the DAC. I'm not sure what type of team Drexel will have next year. Hopefully they can get to the championship at home, but even if they don't it should still be fun.

Drexel is back in the WNIT once again. JMU was the only other CAA team in the field of 64. Brackets to be announced later tonight.
