With the win yesterday Cougars clinched at least 6th place and a spot in the tourney. Mathematically could still finish anywhere from first to sixth. Top 2 get a first game bye

Probably super low attendance at CAA tourney this year. Tourney being hosted by JMU and they will not be in it. Towson and W and M will not be in it either. They are 3 of the closer teams to tourney site.

Final Conf weekend coming up. Cougars mathematically could still finish anywhere from 1St to 5th. .5 teams mathematically could still finish 1st.

I do not like our chances against UNCW. A combo of 2 of 3 over UNCW with 1 Elon loss secures a bye. A sweep of UNCW and 1 NE loss wins the conference. Right now, energy needs to be focused on securing a bye. We are out of at large consideration so a regular season title would be a bonus.

My prediction for tourney seedings
1 NU
2 Elon
3 UNCW
4 CofC
5 Del
6 Hofstra

Elon hosts W and M and holds tie breaker over us and UNCW. Do not think NU loses over 1 at Del

Didn’t help either when we lost two mid-week games to Quinnipiac in March.

Georgia sweep's gotta count for something. Bad loss to Coastal but won the re-match. Good win at S. Carolina. (Duh) Win CAA and doesn't matter. Guess we'll get sent to Clemson.
Are tix from April 11 suspended game at Riley good for tonite? I saved mine. Will we start a weekend pitcher?

Handful of decent wins killed with weak schedule of 29 games against teams with rpi of 200 plus and losing 8 of those.

I am actually optimistic about this weekend at UNCW. This team seems much more focused when playing higher ranked teams (RPI Top 50) and the better teams in the conference. The NU series stands out to me. They know what is at stake this weekend so they will not need motivation. If we come in focused similar to the USC game we should have a good chance to 2 games.

I am more concerned about tonight's game. We need to win tonight to keep the positive momentum going!

Loss today takes us from 2 to 4 seed for tourney. 4 seed as low as we can go due to Del loss today. Games will be on CAA TV and roku. Every day through Sun 50% or better rain chance. Expect some delays

Frankly, we need to get swept now. The 4 seed is where we need to be with Delaware and Northeastern. The Hofstra/Elon/UNCW side of the bracket is going to be a blood bath if everything holds.

5 and 6 seed not determined yet. If NU sweeps Del Hofstra holds tie breaker for 5th

Elon has locked up the 2nd seed with today’s win. We are now playing for 3rd or 4th

I don't understand how Elon clinched the two seed today. They are 15-8 and either the winner of our game today would tied with Elon. So, wouldn't the two seed be decided tomorrow?

Elon still has to win tomorrow. Not probable but possible they lose. We still have mathematical shot at the 2. Again not probable but possible. NU just clinched the 1 seed with their win today

With win tonight 2 through 6 seeds will be determined by final games of the season. We can still finish 2 through 4. Elon has to lose and we have to win to finish 2

Sorry. I made a mistake. Warren Nolan site was not up to date. If Elon loses to W&M, I’d be shocked.

Today’s game with UNCW has been cancelled. So, that means UNCW is a lock at 4. All that needs to be decided is the 2 and 3. Elon wins and we will be at 3.

As expected Elon we;B.C. We are officially 3 seed for tourney. Think our first game is Hofstra.

Beat Hofstra today 10-3. Next game tomorrow 3 pm against Elon.

Not many fans at either game today. Most of the fans present were probably family members of players.
