Literally a school we beat last year. I dont get it. I see it as a downward movement, the AEs more competitive than the WAC

That's actually incorrect I'm sad to say. The WAC has New Mexico State which is usually the league's best team, and several others bring the overall RPI of that league somewhere into the high teens. That's much better than the lower 20's the AE usually is in. The AE is often one of the bottom 5-10 conferences in the country, so this is actually an upgrade from a competition standpoint for Otchere.

I was stunned to see that the AE far outranked the WAC this season. But every other year it has us by a good margin.

Good for him. I always thought he had a good attitude and never got the proper chance at SBU.  Sun Belt ranked 14th in nation by KenPom, so definitely a nice step up for him.
How old a Seawolf am I? I followed them during their Final 4 DIII hoops run in 1977-78 (they were called the Patriots then)

California State Schools have canceled sports for the upcoming Fall, 2020 season.  This means no football for Fresno State, San Diego State and San Jose State, in Mountain West Conference.   This is a huge decision.  Basketball still a question mark for these schools"

That's huge. Expect the cascading effects to start hitting elsewhere soon too with other schools shutting down sports for the fall.

for whatever this is worth- wlax conference gets rid of their conference tournament (i think that still means there is an autobid), citing cost concerns: https://www.uslaxmagazine.com/college/women/mid-american-eliminating-conference-tournament-in-womens-lacrosse

wondering if others could follow, as a cost cutting measure. note this is 12 months ahead of time.

Makes sense. If you want to reduce exposure risk, you limit the number of games. IDK how it works in LAX, but conference tournaments are completely redundant in sports like Basketball. You proved who was better over the course of the regular season. Crown the regular season winner champ, send them to the NCAAT and be done with it.

Elijah in the ACC... this will be interesting. Let's see how he does. I know little about the Canes other than they're not exactly a basketball powerhouse, so he'll likely get decent minutes.

It would be fitting if he chose Santa Clara and they bagged their season.
