Daily Dribbles- 2/15/13

--Davidson's win over College of Charleston basically ends any chance of the Cougars catching the Wildcats. The lead is three games with four to play and the Wildcats own the tiebreaker over the Cougars by virtue of sweeping them. That means if Davidson wins at The Citadel on Saturday, they clinch one of the top two seeds in the South.

--By the same token, if Elon beats Western Carolina on Saturday, the Phoenix will clinch the North Division. They already lead the Catamounts by two and a half games, and with a win would be up three and a half games. The Catamounts would at best be able to tie the Phoenix, and Elon would have swept Western Carolina. In other words, on Saturday, both divisions can be swept.

--College of Charleston is in fine shape. They are up by three games right now on the final bye position. Really no reason to panic for the Cougars at all. Basically, they are locked into the three seed in the SoCon Tournament.

--In terms of the fourth bye race, this weekend is key. With Western Carolina's win over UNCG, the Catamounts are ahead of the everyone in the bye race. They lead the Samford by one half game, Appalachian State by one game, Chattanooga by one and a half games, and UNCG and Georgia Southern by two and a half. UNCG hosts Appalachian State (on Sunday), Western Carolina goes to Elon, Chattanooga goes to Wofford, Samford heads to Furman, and Georgia Southern is on the road against College of Charleston. We'll know a lot more about the bye race come Sunday afternoon.
