RE: ESPN Bubble Watch
I doubt we'll go the rest of regular season without another loss. If we do, and then lose in the Championship game to Charleston (in Charleston), I think we still make it to the Big Dance. We'll be on the bubble for sure, but I think we'll get the benefit of the doubt since we played Duke so tough last year. We proved we could play with the big boys and we would have an even better team (& record) than last year.

RE: ESPN Bubble Watch
The 2016 NCAA tournament should have no bearing on the 2017 tournament. I doubt that UNCW can get in without winning the CAA tournament now. The A10 will only get two teams in and the CAA is no where close to the A10.

I agree. Outside of the gonzaga St Mary's loser I don't see many non power conference at large options

Absolutely agree. NEVER ONCE in all my years have I heard a bubble team's previous tournament showing as a reason to be put in the field. Especially when they lost the game in question. I'm not trying to be a negative nancy but that's some garbage logic at best. For those that don't seem to remember the game very well, we were rocked by Duke's big man in the second half. You don't get a free pass to the following years tournament with an okay season and beating a P5 powerhouse for HALF of a game. The only people that remember that anyways... are us. Even Duke fans probably forgot that game.

Win the CAAT or bust!

I watched it. Not a fan. It was a wasted 30 min.

You fell off the Bubble Watch last week. Today Joe Lunardi improved you to an 11 seed against 6 seed Notre Dame. Seven years ago Old Dominion got an 11 seed and beat Notre Dame.

That would be a great matchup for us, I think.

I agree CG. A tough matchup; ND is very good, but they present a match up problem that we can't prepare for.

Any P5 is going to be tough to deal with for us this year because of our size, lack of depth in rim protectors, and our propensity to guard with our hands instead of our feet.
