Sorry, one correction. VCU and ODU both won 2 championships each before they left the conference 6 years ago. UNCW represents the only current conference member with multiple titles.

Great post, TribePride91! One question, though: what timeframe are you using for your calculations of how many tournaments the other schools have won? It is clearly not "all-time CAA" but it also appears not to be just "the Shaver years" because VCU won 4 and ODU and UNCW each won 3 just since March 2004 (Shaver's first year, I believe).

Here are the tournament records for all the current CAA teams (includes the 1983-1985 ECAC South years):

W L Pct
UNCW 39 26 60%
Northeastern 12 11 52%
Charleston 4 4 50%
JMU 27 32 46%
Hofstra 13 16 45%
Delaware 12 15 44%
Towson 8 15 35%
W&M 18 35 34%
Drexel 7 16 30%
Elon 1 3 25%

JMU has won the tourney 3 times (83, 94, 13); UNCW has won it 6 times (00, 02, 03, 06, 16, 17). VCU had the best tournament winning percentage (70%), followed closely by Richmond and Navy at 67% and ODU at 66%. Delaware and East Carolina are the only schools to win a tourney final but never lose a tourney final (both 1-0 in finals).

Being a Tribe fan is all about cheering against the odds and always expecting the unexpected.

I agree that tournaments should be taken one game at a time.

Now that we know we don't play until Sunday, I just want to make it to Monday. Only then will I think about making it to Tuesday.

Now, that is a long time Tribe fan. I have found myself on a few occasions thinking of the next step too early(Friday's baseball game, 2014 with 130 to go(basketball), and 2009 Dec 13th at halftime(football). I also know that it does not actually affect the outcome. I am not planning for Monday or Tuesday or Wednesday morning. I will watch and root on Sunday and then we will see. One of the most joyful times as a fan was the year we beat VCU in Richmond(95?). We gleefully went to get our tickets for the ODU contest for the semifinals. Then, though there was almost a lack of understanding of what might come next. I do remember despising Odell Hodge and his great inside game. That was 1 of only 2 times a 2nd ticket was ever needed from the day I arrived at W&M until

Other than the few games we have already mentioned, Charlie's 98 team hurt the most. That team was so fun and so unexpected. Had Randy Bracey not gotten hurt, it might have been so different. Still also upset 20 years later that there was no more basketball for that team.

Let's hope for this week and next. It is good to have something positive during the winter especially in a time where hope seems in short supply in so many situations. I know this, I was shocked when Matt's shot did not go in Saturday and also when Connor's did not go in. It was more than just hope, it was belief. I'll listen tonight online knowing that some of you will be at Paul's conveying your encouragement and belief(and hopefully eating a great sandwich(and maybe winning a TV??).

RE: Coaching Carousel
Zorch, thanks. I conveniently began with Coach Shaver's first trip to the finals in 2008. I fully recognize we can pick any date. I am well acquainted with the success of VCU and ODU(from the 90's and 2000's). Mason was also a frequent victor in the 90's and 2000's. Until Coach Shaver came along, we were one and done every year. Only Charlie's 98 team, the success over VCU in 95' and Mark Batzel's last second shot in 88' kept us from being a complete zero of CAA success from the time I arrived as a freshman in 87(as a student and fan, not a player) until Coach Shaver arrived. So, I am grateful to Charlie Woolum for giving us hope and for Coach Shaver for taking it to another level. As such the 2008 team represented total wonder for many of us. Schneider and Sumner took us on a wild ride in 2009-10 and then everything changed again when Marcus arrived. Again, only my opinion which is not worth any victories.
