JMU Going for the Big Dance tonight!

For the first time since 1997 my alma mater is in the CAA championship game! JMU has had pretty good success in football, even though they are 1-AA they did win the title a few years ago and are regulars in the playoffs....but the basketball team has just plain sucked for years....middle of the pack at best in the CAA...when they hired Matt Brady from Marist I thought he was going to be able to turn this ship around but it's been disappointing to say the least....

So this year only 7 teams were eligible for the CAA tourney so it was abbreviated and with no VCU or ODU in the tourney tickets have been 2 for 1 and the place was quiet as a tomb on Friday for the opening round. Yesterday the crowd was better as JMU and George Mason were both playing...

The Dukes only played Northeastern once this year losing by 2 at their place....we've closed the season well winning 10 of the last 14 games...Northeastern has a little advantage in that they got a bye for the first round so they've only played one game vs. 2 for JMU..both won tight games yesterday.....

JMU should have the crowd support as Richmond is only about 2 hours from Harrisonburg and I don't think too many folks will make the trip from Boston for a Monday night game...

Last I looked at scoresandodds there wasn't a line yet - not going to bet this game as I just want to root for my team, but obviously will be interested in what the line looks like....

Northeastern's been the best team in the league all season but anything can happen and let's hope it does!!
