Let’s take a quick look at the games being played this Sunday at the Perry Fieldhouse. The three team round robin used to be the bread and butter of NCDA regular season events, and we’ll even see a couple of repeat games this Sunday.
BGSU gets a handy 3+ home court boost, putting them as a #12 team in comparison to their current #18 placing. BW and Akron come in at #15 and #20 respectively, all three teams fall within that special competitive middle tier. All these ratings are a game or two away from climbing or toppling multiple places in the Standings.
There is not more than 3.674 between these three team’s ratings. It’s good to see that all the scheduled matches should be close and competitive; each game will be a high value for its competitors. While Akron is predicted to fall in their three matches, the upset exchanges are well within the standard deviation for most technical upsets. We have a better chance to see an upset happen in any of these games. I await the results!
