After a week where the stars aligned correctly, Ferrum finds itself right in the thick of the fight for the conference crown. At 2-1, the Panthers are in a five way tie for the lead. While they still have to take one game at a time, and this week presents another "must win" situation, don't expect a lot of change in the standings. Ferrum cannot take Shenandoah lightly, and must execute in all phases. They need to play above...way above the level of their opponent. They need to dominate, and not lose ground going imto the final part of the season.
After going 2-2 last week, I am 26-10 for the year. This weeks picks are:
Shenandoah @ Ferrum
Averett @ Methodist
Greensboro @ Christopher Newport
North Carolina Wesleyan @ Maryville
I expect that the nail biters will be the Shenandoah and Ferrum game, along with the NCW @ Maryville game. Look for the other two to be lopsided. A win for Ferrum will put them at 3-1 in the conference, and keep them very much in the competition. This along with a Maryville win would be another good result. If CNU and Averett were to be upset this weekend, Ferrum would be alone at the top of the USA South!
