Cancelled due to Boston U covid. I was afraid this would happen, as Boston's star player, Sydney Johnson, had missed the previous two games due to covid. It is possible that more players picked it up - or that they simply didn't want to play without Johnson.

Based on what we've seen of Boston U in the past, I wouldn't be surprised if they refuse to bus to Lewisburg on short rest later in the season. With the PL's lack of intestinal fortitude, it is possible the game will never be played.

Two more games postponed today. Looks like things are going to be much like last year. Teams are going to have to be ready to play anyone, anytime, anywhere if they want to have a season.

The BU vs. BU game has been rescheduled for Feb. 2. That was supposed to be an off week, so isn't a big deal. But more postponements will create problems.

Bad loss today at Army. We jumped out 8-0 and seemed to think it would be a walk in the park after that. But Army kept hanging around and started hitting 3's in the 2nd half. We hit two in the first 2 minutes and only made one the rest of the game. O'Brien and Walls played well, but that was about it. Krusl 2-8, Collins 2-8, Johnson 0-3, Sissleman 0-3. The only positive is this may give them some motivation for the rest of the PL season.

Huge game for the women tonight at preseason favorite Lehigh. They will have to play very well to win.

A defensive masterpiece in the first half. Love the fact that the refs seem to have forgotten their whistles. Often when by that happens in one half they do the opposite in the other.

Great win. Outstanding defensive effort. Krsul, O’Brian, and Collins carried the day.

What a great win on the road. The defense wasn't as stingy in the 2nd half and Lehigh started making some open shots. But still, holding a team averaging 70 a game to 45 is mighty impressive. The offense is still shaky at times, but the defense has been stellar the last two games. Looks like their getting themselves back on track.

Big home game Sunday vs. American, who beat Holy Cross 52-39 tonight.

Sixteen rebounds! Is that a career high for O’Brien?

By a lot. Her previous high was 11, which she had several times. 19 and 16 is a good day's work.

Current Massey rankings below, as of December 23rd. The Bison are still on top, but Lehigh has made a big push. They have a lot of returning players and were the preseason favorite.


109 Bucknell
139 Lehigh
176 American Univ
198 Boston Univ
214 Holy Cross
247 Army
276 Lafayette
302 Navy
308 Loyola MD
326 Colgate





Updated Massey rankings below. Boston U has been moving up and may be the most talented team right now. They are 5-0 in league play, although American is the only first division team they have beaten. Looking at the stats, Boston ranks high in 3-point pct, defensive rebounding, and blocked shots. They start a 6-4 and a 6-3 upfront.


128 Bucknell
160 Lehigh
164 Boston Univ
192 American Univ
203 Holy Cross
228 Army
260 Lafayette
298 Navy
311 Loyola MD
332 Colgate

New mid-major poll. Bison move up from 24th to 22nd. Lehigh is still the top among the "others receiving votes", theoretically #26, despite losing to the Bison by double figures.

Tessa Brugler's Drexel team is #15.

The league standings are starting to sort themselves out. The top four teams face each other on Saturday with Boston at Lehigh and HC at Bucknell. Boston is 6-0, but has played a weak schedule (including Loyola twice). Their best win is vs. American. We'll see which of these two is for real.

HC is 5-1 with a quality win over Lehigh, but a lopsided loss to American. They also have close wins over Colgate and Lafayette. This is a game Bucknell "should" win easily, but the memory of the Navy game is still fresh in my mind.

I think there are five "top" teams. American's record is 3-2 and they trail HC only because they have played a much tougher schedule thus far. Their two losses were on the road vs Boston U and Bucknell. They have double figure wins over Holy Cross and Army.

One interesting HC note is that their 5-6 PG Avery Labarbera is averaging 13.3 rpg in PL competition. Also averaging 17 ppg - but shooting very poorly on her threes. Labarbera originally signed with Canisius but switched to HC after Canisius fired their coach in March of her senior year.
