Daily Dribbles- 2/25/13

--Wednesday's game between Elon and Davidson doesn't matter in the SoCon standings, but everyone knows that game should be very exciting. Don't forget- Elon has free streaming video on their site. Everyone interested in SoCon basketball should tune in. The Phoenix are really pointing to this one. Will Lucas Troutman play?

--Dash provides look back at UNCG's close loss to Samford on Saturday evening.

--A review by King Kresse of the utterly disappointing College of Charleston home loss to Gardner-Webb in BracketBusters is here.

--The SoCon went 2-2 in the BracketBusters, and lost the season series to the Big South, 10-8. I was disappointed in how both Davidson and College of Charleston performed in BracketBusters. At home against lesser teams, both should have won. College of Charleston lost, and Davidson (who should have won by closer to double digits) went to overtime. This tells me that the SoCon really is not improving as the year goes on, and that the Cougars and Wildcats records are partly due to the weak competition in the SoCon. Do I think the Wildcats or Cougars could do damage in the NCAA if they get there? Sure. But I feel less good about it than I did last week at this time.

--TheSportsArsenal provides a list of schools that have not been to the Big Dance in a long long time, if ever. It's a good read and a good list.

--The Battle for the Fourth Bye is almost complete. This week will bring it to a conclusion, and here is a wrap up of who gets it in every scenario.
