Weekend losses drop Bisons to 5-7 in GSC

Christian Brothers 77, Harding 67 #10 Christian Brothers visited Searcy on Thursday hoping to get a little revenge for Trent Morgan’s buzzer-beater earlier this season in Memphis.  They did just that, holding the Bisons to 36% shooting from the field in a 77-67 win. Nick Kohs and Reggie Peyton scored 45 of CBU’s points, while […]

Five-point lead not enough for Bisons in final minutes against UAM

The Bisons’ home win streak ended on Saturday night to the 19th-ranked Boll Weevils of Arkansas-Monticello.  With under 1:30 remaining, the Bisons led by five, but a pair of UAM threes quickly turned the game around. Questionable GSC officiating reared its head again, as the Bisons were not awarded a legitimate free throw opportunity late […]

Gulf South Conference Preview 2008-2009

These previews will be in descending order, using the team’s 2007-08 net efficiency, which I think is the best metric of overall team quality. Christian Brothers 2007-2008 Record: 22-10 Net Efficiency: +13.5 The Bucs have some significant losses: perennial star forward Kevin Weybright, starting guard Justin Ray, and reserve guard Roberto Casiano.  Weybright is a […]

GSC Tournament updated log5, stats, and quick recaps

The opening round games were last night, and everything went pretty much as expected. That’s bad news, at least relatively speaking, for the favorites, who suffer slightly in the updated Log5 predictions because of the increasing quality of their potential opponents. Some quick recaps: #5W Arkansas Tech 65, #4E Alabama-Huntsville 49 The Chargers bowed out […]

Making the GSC Tournament: Possible Scenarios

The Bisons cut down the nets after last night’s game, since it was the first time in the 50-year history of the program that the Harding men finished tied for a conference (or really the division) championship. They still have some work to do, though, if they want to win a GSC Championship and make […]

GSC Predictions 2007-2008

I’ve used this space a lot over the past few years to throw out opinions about D-II basketball, but I try to emphasize that the prediction game is an awfully tough one to play. At the Division-II level, many of the players are either total unknowns or washed-up former high-school, JC, and even D-I stars […]

GSC Preview 2007-2008: Arkansas-Monticello

Arkansas-Monticello is clearly another GSC school that will take just about any player with skill who wants to transfer there.  There are only three holdovers from last year’s 8-17 team (Brett Potter, Derek Easter, and Jermaine Samuels), accounting for a grand total of 4.5% of the team’s offensive possessions.  Needless to say, it will be even easier […]
