Cheer on the Bryant Bulldogs (Help BC's SOS)

New, 3 comments

Brian: Sure. It's been a season to forget for the Eagles’ basketball team. Yet things could be much, much worse for BC. The Eagles don’t even come close to being the poster child of futility this season.

That distinction may very well go to one of BC’s 2009-2010 opponents.

"Now the lonely, harsh spotlight shines on Bryant. The team averages an NCAA-worst 51.7 points per game and doesn't an eligible player averaging double-digits. Cecil Gresham was putting up nearly 15 points a game before he went down with an ACL injury in December. It was an omen for this season, certainly. The Bulldogs are 0-26 and have four games remaining on their schedule.

Bryant plays at Wagner (4-23) and at Mount Saint Mary's (11-14), and wraps up their season at home vs. Saint Francis (10-15) and Long Island (10-15).

Any chance the Bulldogs will get in the win column this year, denying a 0-30 season and helping out the Eagles strength of schedule?

Jeff: Wagner is the worst team left on the Bulldog's schedule with only four wins on the season. Bryant has to play Wagner on the road tomorrow night and it's always difficult to win on the road no matter who the opponent is. Next, Bryant has no chance of winning their next game against Mount Saint Mary's.

After that, if you look at the remaining team's RPI, Saint Francis is the weaker of the two teams Bryant will play at home.  Real Time RPI actually predicts Bryant winning in a close game against Saint Francis. I find it hard to believe that a winless team is going to be expecting to beat a team in their conference with nearly a .500 conference record so I am expecting Bryant to stay winless.

Brian: Looks like it will all come down to the regular season finale between Bryant and Saint Francis. BC also faced Saint Francis earlier this year. The Eagles knocked off Saint Francis 72-44 and later beat Bryant 72-46. The Bulldogs scored one more bucket on BC than the Seahawks did. So you're saying there's a chance?

Go Bulldogs!
