    D'youville is right where they should be. They can't beat any of the teams ahead of them in this week's Tstar rankings.

    Having the "ability" and actually doing it are two different things. Has DY actually beaten any of the teams ahead of them this year? Do they have any wins over quality teams? Just asking.

    There only quality win against a team ahead of them in the ranking was Pickering. So thats why I said they could possibly beat some teams ahead of them.
    They played Henry Carr tight at the Rimrocker and were ahead for 3 quarters of the game and ended up losing by 4. They really should of have and could have won that game, but there free throw shooter took his shots with his left hand to ice the game because he was fouled hard and fell hard on his right hand.

    There is a lot of parody in the top ten. Most teams could pull off a win during any given game, ie. West Hill over Eastern and d'youville over Pickering. d'youville is no different. They are a well coached, talented, and senior laden team. No disrespect, but stevelogan92 has that game wrong. FHC led for most of the Rimrocker final. d'youville took the lead late in the 4th quarter briefly, and we were able to pull it out at the end.

    Nobody should take any top ten team lightly.
