I cant argue with Dambrot right now. They are #64 in kenpom.

When was the last time any Dusquene team was ranked this high in any metrics pool. the answer is never.

They beating everyone they are supposed to beat.

It's a young team that returns everyone next year.
I agree with this. Their goals are probably different than ours. They need fan support and positive press for their program. Winning helps that. It also helps sell tickets and generate revenue. All A10 programs are not in the same position or have the same goals this year. Maybe they are on a 5 year plan.

Duquesne has made the Final Four and been ranked #1 in the nation before, so...

Random thought...we get Duquesne on their senior night.

And...Weren't you trying to bet on Duquesne’s A-10 finish a few years ago?

Dusquene routs Radford 71-49 on the road.
The are now #61 on kenpom.

while they haven't beat anyone with cache, they pretty much whipped every team they've played.

That is first step in becoming a good team is decisively beating the teams you are supposed to beat. The next step is beat good teams.

I would just like to point out that ODU lost their 7th straight game in a 14 point loss to Illinois in which ODU never led at any point from tip-off to final buzzer.

3-8 so far in the OOC schedule for the Monarchs. They now go to 9-1 Richmond which will almost certainly be an 8th straight loss.

Actually it is in Tidewater...
Hopefully that won’t change much.

Watched some of the St Louis game. Was impressed with Gibson Jimmerson from RVA. Did we ever express interest in him?
