In Need of Some Love

In the midst of trying to avoid a four game CAA losing streak, Coach Larranaga has been seen in rare form, both on the sidelines and to the press. Poor conference play is never something Larranaga's teams are known for. A losing streak like this is something we haven't seen since Larranaga first came to Fairfax in 1997. The Patriots should be able to climb back and take outright possession of the #5 seed in the conference. After tonight in Delaware the last two CAA foes they face are Georgia State and Northeastern. Its hard to call any remaining games on the Patriots schedule "winnable" after the way things have gone this year. But these remaining CAA games might be just the kind of "tune-up" games the Patriots need to get things in order and finally get some stability before the conference tournament begins. The top 4 teams in the CAA have all had their struggles despite most still being mentioned as "bubble" teams for the NCAA tournament. ODU has seemed to be the strongest lately after knocking off Hofstra last night. The CAA tournament has a history of #1 seeds winning but this year it doesn't seem like things will be that easy for any of the top teams. Trust me, Larranaga knows this. What he doesn't know is if he will get strong guard play the rest of the season.
