Daily Dribbles- 11/13/13

--Welcome to the world of advanced stats, Dash! For everyone else, this is a beautiful summary of these basic advanced metrics that I include for Mocs games every time, and like to look at whenever I do a preview of any team or game. This explanation is as good and concise as any.

--A nice post about what college basketball can mean to all of us- from a Davidson fan. Nicely done.

--Back-to-back nights with jaw-droppingly painful losses for SoCon teams. Monday night it was Georgia Southern against Miami. Last night, it was East Carolina stunning UNCG with three free throws in the closing moments to win by one. UNCG played near perfect early on, but the Pirates pulled it out in the end.

--On a positive note, Furman got a nice win over Gardner-Webb at home. Winning by eleven is a nice thing at home. The Paladins may be more improved than we realized.

--Hard to call what The Citadel did against Presbyterian a quality win, but the Bulldogs won against the Blue Hose. There have been some good moments for The Citadel so far this year, as they are now 1-2. They seem a little bit better than originally expected. Combine their win with the Furman win, and the bottom of the SoCon looks better than mos tthought in the preseason.

--Campbell beat down Appalachian State 73-66. The Mountaineers came back in the second half after a very bad first half. Not particularly good home loss against the Camels.

--Samford never could come back against Texas-Arlington on Monday night in Texas. The Bulldogs loss was disappointing for the SoCon, but Samford should still be OK. Raijon Kelly scored 18 points with four assists and five rebounds.
