If UD has an opportunity to play in a post-season tournament, you absolutely have to go. It's not like we have a long and storied basketball history. This program has NEVER won a post-season game. It would also be good experience for the group we have returning next season. Now let's head to DC and make some noise. There are 5 or 6 teams that have a legitimate shot at this thing.

I’d be extremely disappointed if we do not play in a post season game. Everyone returning next year. Post season experience would be huge.

It’s Charleston.

As tough as it is to beat a team 3 times in one season, it is equally as tough to beat a team twice in as many weekends. Saturday’s and Sunday’s games will have 3 and possibly 4 rematches from this weekends games.

Drexel vs UNCW
Charleston vs Delaware
Towson vs Northeastern
and possibly W&M vs Elon

I’m not a gambler, at least not like a few of our posters are, but I may just bet this weekends losers across the board. I’ve experienced trying to win these back to backs from both sides and it’s really tough to do.
