Daily Dribbles-11/11/13

--In case you missed it late week last week, Trey Sumler and Josh Mendenhal have been suspended indefinitely from Western Carolina. This is getting particularly dangerous for the Catamounts- it's very difficult to replace a guy like Sumler, particularly when you weren't planning on being without him. The Catamounts are not a true SoCon contender without Sumler. With him, they are.

--What did this weekend mean to the SoCon? I don't know exactly. The Citadel lost two games against other mid-majors in the All Military Classic. Brian White did look awfully good, collecting 24 points per game and 10.5 rebounds per contest. Wofford, Davidson, Appalachian State all lost to BCS conference teams. But UNCG did beat High Point Friday night in a bit of an upset. Elon hammered Marist on the road on Sunday night. That's 2-2 against non-BCS conference, DI teams. In truth, that's not terrible. There were no wins against BCS conference teams, but no losses to non-D1s either.

--Three games on Monday against non-BCS, D1 teams. Wisconsin-Milwaukee visits Davidson on ESPN3. UNC-Asheville heads to Western Carolina. After watching the first half of UNCA against Kentucky, I would think UNCA was pretty good. The second half- not quite so much. Chattanooga takes Chaos on the road to play Big South foe Radord. That's a big night for the SoCon. It would be nice for the SoCon to go 2-1 in those three games.
