Well, it’s come to this. We can only grind our gears on the Brady situation for so long, so now we’re just going to give you a few items to be excited about that thankfully do not have anything to do with men’s hoops.
First, the women’s tourney is up here near DC this weekend at the ShowPlace Arena in Upper Marlboro. The only question remaining to be answered in this CAA season is can anyone of the contenders (with the Dukes qualifying as the #1 contender) knock off all-world Elena DellaDonne and Delaware. The Blue Hens are ranked in the top ten nationally so the best thing in the world for the CAA is actually for JMU to win the tourney and earn #2bids4CAA like the men have a shot to do. JMU plays it’s first game Friday at 5 p.m. against the winner of tomorrow’s 7/10 matchup. (What a novel concept, a top four seed and a bye for JMU basketball team!) Also, Nikki Newman won the CAA Defensive Player of the Year award tonight!
Speaking of #2bids4CAA, let’s all put our general Philly hatred aside and pull hard for Drexel’s name to show up in an NCAA bracket as opposed to an NIT come Sunday night.
Lastly, since even the Diamond Dukes are in a slump right now, we’ll go back to the DEEP well that is the 2012 football expectations. Spring practice starts in two weeks and tickets to JMU/WVU @ FedEx are on sale now!
