I’m a week or so removed from the D3 scene. Sorry for the absence but it’s make it or break it for some teams starting now. Conference tournaments are underway and will be finished real soon. I believe that the NCAA Selection show is this Sunday 5/3.
Thanks to all for positive and or critical feedback on the All-Decade team. Kreiger was a definite miss on my part and deserves a nod. If I can create a user poll for this team I think I will do that so you all can vote on the Position Players of the Decade and then on a Player of the Decade.
So back to D3land and the big show. I’m a fan of the AQ as it makes conference play that more important. We saw that first hand this year in the CAC as Stevenson and St. Mary’s defeated Salisbury and almost had them sitting at home while everyone went to the dance.
We have one lock in Salisbury for pounding #1 at the time Stevenson two weeks ago. No need to worry, the Mustangs will get invited and should be the #2 in the South behind undefeated Roanoke…assuming they win the ODAC.
This week, we have some match ups that will include some fierce inter-conference rivalries. At stake, a ticket to the dance!
