X was named Player of the Week-

 

https://getsomemaction.com/news/2020/3/8/mac-announces-final-mens-basketball-players-of-the-week.aspx

 

Nice to see him come around.  He spoke after the PCCC game on the post-game and referenced his shooting slump.  He  said it was nice that the coaches and players kept supporting him and telling him to shoot and that as a shooter he needs that confidence.  He also referenced that he's had some "personal stuff" going on.  Hopefully, he's past the slump and the personal stuff.  He's such a likable kid.  He's east to root for.

Let's hope Vegas is correct.

If X gets back on his early season form again, look out MAC and whoever we would draw in the tournament.

One person is hospitalized at Cleveland Clinic Main Campus.  2 others are in self-quarantine.  These folks have been out in the community for the last several weeks, and chances are that this spirals fast.

 

It is important to note that the reasoning behind any potential cancellation is NOT the risk to the general public, it is the risk of exposing high-risk demographics (75+/<1yr/immuno-compromised).  Working in healthcare, it drives me nuts that people are calling this "hysteria."   The risk is real, and mortality rates may be as high as 25-30x that of the seasonal flu.

The most infuriating are the idiots the break quarantine to do stuff like go to a father-daughter dance.  

 

This is going to be an odd March madness time.

Linked on other thread is press release that Tourney going on as planned.   Ok...everyone...no hugs, no high 5s, no handshaking...keep it real and be responsible.  If you see someone not washing their hands or appears to be sick...don't get too close...but call them out on it.

At the half, OU up 45-23 on CMU.  38-31 Toledo over Western with less than minute in the 1st half.  KSU up 37-25 with about 2 minutes left in the half.  13-12 Buffalo over Miami early in the 1st half.

CMU put up quite the fight. Looks like it's going to be the Kittens

Central made a run and put Kittens on their heals for a few minutes.  One of my rules, never count on a directional Michigan school or the Akron women's team to get the job done.

It makes our half of the bracket easier as Buffalo is better than NIU. We still got to take care of business Thursday.

I have three in my family that work in hospitals and none are overly concerned.  Cautious yes. What is basis of 25x?  I expect the number of cases to go up now that testing has started.

Buffalo’s exit costs the tournament a few thousand tickets sold. Miami and NIU might bring 300 combined to their Thursday game.
