Daily Dribbles- 11/14/13

--Trey Sumler was reinstated late Wednesday. This is nothing but good news for Western Carolina. The charges were dropped. Josh Mendenhall remains suspended as the charges are still pending against him.

--Sumler played last night at Oregon as Western Carolina trailed by just two at halftime at Oregon before falling to the Ducks. It was a pretty good showing early in the game across the country for the Catamounts, who looked OK.

--Dash has plenty of reaction to UNCG's loss to East Carolina on Tuesday night. Yes, that's three links in one sentence. Click 'em all.

--This may be a football preview, but it is also contains a brief mention of the Bulldogs basketball, and notes that a football ticket gets you in a game between The Citadel and North Greenville on Saturday for free. Enjoy, those in Charleston.

--No games tonight, before a shocking twelve games in three days this weekend. Every SoCon team will be in action at least once, and Western Carolina will play on both Friday and Saturday. Furman playing host to Sweet Sixteen participant Florida Gulf Coast and Samford's trip to Indiana are two of the more interesting battles. Should be very interesting.

--I just went out to Pomeroy and looked at Davidson game predictions in the coming weeks. Pomeroy predicts a loss to Virginia, before the Charleston Classic, where Davidson is the lowest ranked team of any team there. In other words, Pomeroy is saying Davidson would lose three games there. Then, against Stetson, Davidson is favored. Then a trip to Charlotte is a predicted loss. The game against Johnson & Wales is a predicted win. Then games against Drexel, Wichita State, Niagra and North Carolina are all predicted to be losses, before the game against College of Charleston is a predicted win. That's a pre-SoCon record of 3-11, with one win over a non-D1. That's not good. Of course, Pomeroy is picking things using percentages, and so in reality, Davidson is not expected to lose ALL of those games. But Davidson is the underdog in those games per Pomeroy. That schedule is very tough, but no Wildcat fan is expecting their team to go 3-11 pre-SoCon. That being said, Pomeroy is still predicting an 11-5 SoCon record, which is good for second in the conference (behind Elon). That's what happens when you lose to Wisconsin-Milwaukee on your home floor.

  1. Watch the last shot video on my page. Does anyone see the foul? Gotta love how Richmond hit the floor a good 6 seconds after the shot left his hand.
