Really impressed by this team. Lots of grit and they seem to have a number of different players who can step up at the right moment.

Wasn’t pretty the last 7 minutes but took care of business in OT. Let’s get greedy and get the sweep tomorrow!

Very entertaining to watch, and this team is getting better and better. The way they were challenged, and fought back tells me there are more good things ahead.

Note: Smalls broke EDD's record of 3 point shots in a game. Nice to have some new individual record.

Smalls 8 for 9 3's broke EDD's record. Amazing. I suggest Dickey and Small play with the men next year. :lol:

Statistically speaking, probably one of the best played games in recent years. It may be hard to duplicate a day later.

Great win! The last 6-7 minutes of the 4th was the coachable moments that may allow us to get a sweep.

Not 100% sure that we already have the #1 seed clinched. Towson is 7-3 with 2 games left against UD and 2 against winless UNCW (0-9). If they win out they would be 11-3 and under that scenario, if UD lost to JMU today we would be 14-4, a winning % that comes in less than a % point below 11-3.

Not sure if that's the correct way they determine the conference winner or not but win any one of the final 3 games and we are definitely regular season champs.

Game two is not off to a good start. We're down 21-7 at the end of the first quarter. Poor shot selection which got us in trouble at times yesterday. Plus JMU seems really fired up and motivated by the loss yesterday.
