Elon & William & Mary - J.B. - 01-03-2019 09:34 PM

Well I see that our resident game thread starter is taking a vacation, so I figure I'll start something up for the combined weekend games.

Nice to get CAA win #1 tonight against a pretty poor Elon team. The Phoenix was about to start off well and jump out to a big early lead thanks to some great three-point shooting. But once those shots stopped falling from them, the pretty much had nothing.

Dragons shot a wicked 59% in the 2nd half and outscored Elon by 15 in the half. Dragons pulled out to a 20 point lead. Elon fought back and got it to 10.

Sorry I was out of town the past 3 days. Definitely a nice win and one that was needed to know that we are truly capable of winning in this league based on what we have seen in the OOC. Beating teams like Elon and handily is necessary if we intend on getting a middle of the pack finish. Elon is easily the weakest team in the conference this season.

For the record we are a 1 point favorite today.

W&M- 84
DU- 78

http://www.vegasinsider.com/college-basketball/odds/las-vegas/?s=1026 says you opened favored by 1 but are now an underdog by 1. The line and over/under predicts 80-79.

Reasonably typical game. Got behind, fought back and ultimately our defense let us down. We got it within 5, maybe 4 then our defense got soft and allowed W&M some wide open shots that they buried. Game ballooned in a hurry from that point. A team like W&M that runs lots of motion and screens will give us problems every time with our defense. Time to move on to the next game and keep getting better.

Side note: Those W&M jerseys were not good at all. They have never had bad jerseys but those were awfully close. That lettering just doesnt work. The cursive tribe was a much cleaner look than what they wore on Saturday.
