Notes:

It is quite by coincidence that the predictions for the East are in the same order as last season. I didn't realize that until I posted. Lycoming, Fairleigh, and Kings are so closely matched I could easily put them in any order after Drew. The conference battle in the East is going to be very tough this season!!!

Good job, Jim!

At the end of non-conference play, the Freedom Conference is #2 behind the always-tough Capital Conference.


We have 6 ranked teams, including the top three.

LOL! Thanks Al! I was just getting ready to post this also!

The conference finished 15-10 against Top 25. The West was actually 9-4.

In head to head match-ups between Capital and Freedom, Freedom won the series 6-4.

Conference play will be brutal!!!

Heading down the stretch we have 6 teams in position for a NT bid and 1 PIT. But we also have two teams who could easily make a push for the post season.

Logic says you are right.  History says differnt, Al. But I did have a tough time choosing between  Delaware Valley and Drew for #3 in the East. .
6/20/2010 12:19 PM
Probably not to far off.  I'm hoping Roland can carry me a little higher than 5th, but its going to be a strugglte with 4 frosh playing at least 10minutes a game
7/15/2010 8:32 AM
The predictions were quite off for the West!  We do have 5 teams in a position to make the NT and 2 in position for the PIT.  the Conference Tournament will be wide open, but Kings is the team to beat!

This is the best balanced conference we've had in a long time.  It wouldn't be shocking to see any of the top 10 teams win the CT
of 13
