I enjoyed listening to Matt Martucci and Joe Linardi on the broadcast tonight. Martucci was singing the praises of the Bonnies all night, remember he's been paired with Dr G on a number of Bonnie games this year. I think this may have been the first time Linardi has seen us play and he also had great things to say. One, he mentioned that NBA scouts will not only be looking at Osun but also Kyle. But in a discussion on potential A-10 at-larges, after being prompted by Martucci, he said if the Bonnies finish second in the league, they will absolutely be in the discussion. Love him or hate him, people listen to Linardi. We keep winning, we will be in the discussion. Rhody still has games with Dayton and St Louis and are at Davidson and UMass. I see a couple of losses there. An at-large is not a pipe dream.
Yes it is. For one you are just assuming we finish the season on a 13 game win streak before a loss in the finals. Most people would consider having to win 13 games in a row a bit of a pipe dream. On top of that we have I think 4 Q3/4 losses.
I just don’t see our NET ranking jumping 60 or so spots even with 13 W’s.
"I expect everyone to make the extra effort to get on Will Brown for this game Saturday," an Internet poster named thebonafan08 wrote this week on a St. Bonaventure basketball message board. "He must feel the wrath of his mistake." 12/8/07 Albany Times Union
Wednesday results make Saturdays game even more important as chance for a top 4 finish or post season increase greatly with a win. Our only win so far against top 8 A-10 teams was our win at Dukes. A loss leaves little or no margin for error in remains games. Our remaining (after Richmond) games against top 8 teams is home vs Dukes and road vs St. Louis.

bump — updated after Saturday 3/7 games with final standings and tournament schedule
Stunna, I want to again express my sincere thanks on behalf of our fellow Wagoneers for your hard work and due diligence in updating the scores, standings and brackets in a timely manner, both m/w. Very appreciative!
losing the double bye sucks, no doubt, as it makes it more difficult to win the whole thing. But- just from a single game standpoint, won't it help a little bit against St. Louis to have that Thursday night game, assuming we win of course.
Our guys get a game to get acclimated to the Barclays arena and put some shots in the basket, while St. Lou doesn't, maybe they come out cold.
1. Get back to playing like we can on Thursday night. 2. Saint Louis isn't exactly an offensive juggernaut. Much more key is for us to rebound and to get into some offensive flow and rythym to mitigate their defensive pressure and physicality. 3. Pray the force isn't with Obi and Dayton looks ahead to the Great Galactic War 4. Anything goes on Sunday
