SOME QUICK THOUGHTS:

-Hopkins 13, Loyola 8. You’re not beating Dave Pietramala on the final weekend of the season. Forget it.
-Villanova 9, Towson 8. I’m just not comfortable enough with this Tigers team to pick them to win anything. This would be a hell of a rabbit for Tony Seaman to pull out of his hat though.
-UMBC 10, Stony Brook 6. As I said, the Retrievers are the class of the conference. That will carry them.
-Maryland 14, Yale 7. The Terps can’t lose a must win game to Yale, can they?

Talk to you over the weekend.
