With Maryland 's loss to Hopkins last night Quint's bracket now has Albany with the 2nd seed and playing UMass at home with the winner probably playing Notre Dame. Now that would be a great rematch with a reasonably healthy Connor Fields.

Connor seemed to be walking around after the game pretty well. I had read speculation about how would the selection committee seed Albany based upon Connor's injury situation? Connor has already come out and said he is playing. I wonder if that is a bit of a smoke screen for the committee?

I am still perplexed about how good Connor looked against Hartford and how bad he looked against UML. Coach Marr made the right call yesterday, and I wonder if Connor's availability next week depends on the seed and who Albany draws?

I think Albany can handle just about any first round game without Connor with the possible exception of Denver, but to win it all we need Connor in some capacity. At this point I am not sure if one or two week's rest matters in terms of getting Connor back healthy enough to play at or near his best.

Where have you been? Loudonville Community College

Never heard that.  Don't have time or space in my brain to worry about Siena.

Sorry, forgot a letter.

Said the same thing earlier. I think the disparity between the top 6 and the rest of the field is huge

I'm not perplexed at all.  I think it has to do with how well or poorly his knee is taped or wrapped under the brace.  They have to decide if they want him to play at anywhere near his ability [wrap it well] or not.  A tight wrapping will likely limit his ability to dodge some BUT will help support it and help him play.

I agree.  I was thinking UMass or Robert Morris as well

Not sure if committee wants us to play another rematch in 1st round but we have owned UMass past few years so that would  be favorable to move on possibly with Fields sitting it out.

And now Yale loses just when you thought they were the hottest team.   What a lax season!  

WOW!
