Back to reality

I kind of knew it was too good to be true. The rise from 8th place to 2nd place within a matter of weeks was just too much to hope for, and Albany made sure of that by having their big dudes push our guys around and putting up a 12-point vic.

The injustice of it all is after that tireless climb to the near-top, one loss sends us tumbling ALL the way back down to the #6 seed. What kind of lesson are we teaching America's youth here? Try really hard, but if you mess up once it's all for nothing? The lesson here, as always: never try.

Actually, there were several points during this season (notably the "We Suck" portion) where I would have been plenty thrilled to be getting the #6, so I can't entirely complain. What I can complain about is a SECOND STRAIGHT matchup with Albany!

We'll have more on that matchup and everything else tourney-related throughout the week, so stay tuned here. Regardless of what seed they are, the Terriers take the floor 5 days from now with a chance to go to the NCAA Tournament - and that's a reason to get excited.
