GW Men's Hoops » The End of March Madness? » Today 12:48 pm

Steve, I'm inclined to agree with you. The casual fan is certainly drawn in  by the storylines.  Even with GW not being in the tourney, I mainly watch to see how the A10 and other non power conference teams do in those opening rounds and hopefully beyond. My interest wanes as the tournament moves along and we're only left with the power conference schools, unless we get that breakout mid major.  Thats the true attraction of college basketball. I enjoy becoming a UMBC fan for a day.

I may be naive but I think it would be a non starter.

But then again there is a lot that has happened recently, that I never would have imagined.

My guess is that the A10's biggest threat (and I'm not sure there's a close second) would be if the Big East had an interest in becoming a superconference.  Without big time football, this would be more of an ego play than anything else, as in if the SEC becomes 16 schools and say other conferences get to that number or close to that number, then the Big East may feel it can't stay at 11 and feel relevant.  

To get to 14, you could add Dayton (which Xavier might object to though the two co-existed for many years in our conference) and SLU which could join a west division along with Butler, Creighton, DePaul, Marquette and Xavier.  This adds the 23rd and 65th largest US markets for the conference.  You would then need one more school for the eastern region and that could theoretically be either Davidson (#22 largest market), VCU or Richmond (though it would more likely be VCU, #56 largest market) or as a longshot, UMASS (116 in market size but the way these things sometimes get figured, the flawed logic might be that with BC out of the conference, UMASS will bring the Boston market back into play, even if this in reality would have a marginal impact).  Of course to reach 16, then Dayton, SLU, Davidson, VCU and UMASS could all go, with one of these schools designated as a west division school.

Let's say this happens - what's next for the A10?  raiding the CAA/America East? Not fun to envision

Someone has got to be projecting revenue on this hypothetical event. I am not convinced that an all/only power conference tournament would have remotely the pull of the open NCAA field. The Cindarella story is half the draw. People watch for the chance to see #15 FGCU put an ass kicking on Georgetown.

FYI, he's also the QB at Ireton with offers from Pitt, UMD & Charlotte.

Interesting analysis of average KenPom over the last few years. By and large A10 really has been hurt by not getting the chances to play top teams and not taking advantage of those chances we do get with wins. Most of the league is bunched between 165-182 and Fordham has been downright putrid.

FQ, not in consideration?  West, as you say, and Nixon, each won 2 NBA titles.  Nixon was the Lakers leading scorer during one of their Championship runs.  Here are the stats for each:

Player                             GP   Min.     Pts.    FG%      R       A      S       B

E. Jones                         954   34.4   14.8    43.7      4.0    2.9    1.7     0.6

Camby                           973    29.5     9.5    46.6      9.8    1.9    1.0     2.4

West                             1,034  28.2   13.6    49.5      6.4    2.2    0.7      0.8

Nixon                              768   35.5   15.7    48.3      2.6    8.3    1.5      0.1


A bit of apples to oranges here due to positions but I believe what this shows is that all four players should be in the same conversation for having the best career.  Nixon did not play for as many seasons but what's very surprising is that he had a better career shooting percentage than the much taller Camby.  I'd say that Camby was the strongest influence on defense, Nixon and West on offense, and Jones was the most complete player of the four.

The team looked great tonight.  They controlled the field for most of the match.

Cammie Dopke had 2 assists.
Goalie Erica Lorenzana had 3 recorded saves.

...We've got Davidson on Sunday at 1:00 PM at The Vern.
Senior Day.

First game I ever saw in person-Duquesne with Sihugo Green vs.Temple with Hal Lear.Both were big
time programs as I’m sure you all know in the mid-fifties.As an impressionable 9 year old I remember the 
smells and the sounds of the arena to this day.They say olfactory memories may be the earliest.The fact that someone’s name was Sihugo was thrilling and mysterious.

How about Roy Hinson for top 5? Scored nearly 20 points a game one year and was then traded for the #1 overall pick, used to take Brad Daugherty.  Career averages of 14 points 7 boards.  

I was stunned to learn that the current A10 schools, (which excludes any school that left the A10) produced an incredible 8 players taken 1st or 2nd,
4 #1 overall NBA picks:

Lanier
Hetzel
Si Green 
D*ck Ricketts 
Marcus Camby
Tom Stith 
Bob Ferry 
Tom Gola

I thought Norm Nixon was pre A10, but I guess he was there when it started and played a year or two in the A10.  He was good, but I don’t think his peak was anywhere close to Eddie Jones or Camby.

David West is someone I definitely should have mentioned. Two time all star and two time nba championship ((though I still say the buzzer tip in he was credited for to beat us was actually Anthony Myles). Mike Jones had a 13 year nba career.   James Posey had a nice run in the NBA, as did Smush Parker.  TJ McConnell is also having a solid career.   

But none of those guys can really be in consideration for having a better career than Camby or Jones.

Gentlemen, if any of you are season ticket holders but not in the DC area (keeping your tix as a way of supporting the program), please let me know.  I have not been a season ticket holder for a long time and am planning to get the package which provides "the best seat available" in the upper deck.  But, if anyone wants to share tickets, I'm happy to offer compensation.  If not, I'll see you from the nosebleeds.
