We are 10-1! By NET ranking, we are in the top half of the SEC! According to this random online source, we are the 28th-best team in the country! Only 16 teams in all of college basketball have a better winning percentage than we do! ESPN’s Bracketology has us in the “First Four Out” grouping! And we have 3 more easy games to go before we start SEC play! I’m not saying these games are gimme’s, but Dayton, FDU, and Radford all definitely fall below the level of competition we’ve been playing, and beating, recently. We definitely have the size, skill, and talent, so assuming the entire team doesn’t magically forget how to make 3-pointers like in the Butler game, I think we will be fine to cruise on through these last three games. Dayton certainly presents the biggest challenge to that, but with our team chemistry continuing to build, not even 2nd-in-the-nation rebounder Arianna Smith should be able to stop us.
