Who Should UD Fans Root for in CAA Tourney?

Post by BlueHenBill » Sun Mar 08, 2020 7:08 pm

Should UD make the CAA finals, should UD fans root for Wm & Mary or Elon and for Northeastrn or Towson? Ordinarily you would prefer the lower seeded teams to advance to give UD a presumably easier match-up in the final against a lower seeded team playing its fourth game in 4 days. On the other hand, UD defeated Elon & Northwestern twice. On the theory that it is hard to defeat a good team three times in the same season, that would seem to indicate that Wm & Mary (who defeated UD twice) & Towson (with whom UD split) would be more favorble match-ups for UD. What say you?

I'd prefer Elon over William & Mary (which is currently happening, but W&M is charging), & not much of a preference in Northeastern/Towson. Think we match up a little better with Northeastern. Don't think it will matter however as I still see W&M coming out of that side of the bracket, even though they're trailing.

Wow, I stand corrected. Elon shocks W&M.

Elon will be a good team next year. Only losing one grad student i believe. And they have a good contingent of freshmen and sophomores. Future is bright for them

WM fans must be jumping into the Potomac. Never dancing and one of their better years down the drain.

They will drop near the bottom next year.

If Northeastern finishes it off in the 2nd half, 6 seed versus 7 seed on the other side of the bracket

Only Hofstra wore a white jersey and won today. Higher seeds went 1-3.

As expected this tournament is wide open. Why not us? GoHens

What a shame seeing Pat Skerry lose again in the tournament.

Crazy day...Hofstra the only higher seeded team to win. We find a way to win tomorrow night, and I really like our chances against either Northeastern or Elon. Let's go Hens!!!

Agreed. We shouldn't look past Hofstra but boy, this thing looks a whole lot less daunting now that the two teams we couldn't beat in the regular season are out. Out of the two, I feel like we match up better against Northeastern.

Beat Hofstra, go Hens!

Should we win tonight, I’d prefer Elon. While they will have a lot of momentum, playing 4 games in 4 days is pretty tough.

Great point but in the words of the Rock, "It doesn't matter"!!!

We knock off Hofstra tonight and and their confidence level will be off the charts.

I like the match up verse either of those 2 squads.
Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard enough!!!!
