--Quiet day in the SoCon for the next two days. UNCG plays Stetson in the Gulf Coast Showcase.
The Spartans played relatively tough against a good San Diego team- much better than they did against Louisiana Tech. Georgia Southern plays Presbyterian in Cancun after a heartbreaking loss to Oral Roberts on Tuesday afternoon. On Thursday, the Mocs are battling Morehead State. That's it. Those are the three SoCon games between now and Friday.
--Trey Sumler won Player of the Week for Western Carolina this past week. Brian White won Freshman of the Week for the second time for The Citadel. White has been a pleasant surprise this year.
--Missed this positive post earlier about Appalachian State's loss to North Carolina Central from AppHoops. Check it out.
--The SoCon is still 5-4 against the Big South on the year. They are also 0-3 against the CAA. They are now 1-3 against the Sun Belt.
--I just noticed something when going through SoCon stats. The three leaders among games started by current SoCon players are all Western Carolina players. Trey Sumler (95), Brandon Boggs (89), and Tawaski King (82) are the three leaders. No wonder Western Carolina has been playing better than a lot of other teams and is among the favorites in the SoCon this year.
--Everyone should sign up at http://www.kenpom.com. It is well worth the money. Then, you should sign up for your favorite team- and make it be a SoCon team. There is a listing of most popular teams. I'm hoping to see SoCon teams move up that list in the coming weeks.
