Week 5 – Five to Watch Results

by Carl James • @jovian34 • Mar 17

Weather impacted many games around the Country. These results were not too enlightening. Total opponent W-L results split and RPI model data has #iubase in NCAA Tourney as a 3-seed (but its still VERY early).

#18 East Carolina at Maryland. Maryland got swept by #18 East Carolina at home. The Terps were shut out in games 1 and 3, and scored 1 run in game 2. That means the Terps scored only 1 run the entire weekend.

Cal State Northridge at Iowa. Iowa had to cancel one of these games. CSUN won the first game and Iowa is up 1-0 in third inning of game 2 as of the writing of this article.

Nebraska vs New Mexico State. Series was cancelled.

Minnesota at Long Beach State. These teams split the opening games, and Minnesota looks to be in a pretty good position to win the rubber match with 10-4 lead in the eighth, but the Gopher bullpen is their weak spot, so this is still up in the air.

The Citadel at Indiana State. The Sycamores improve to 16-1 sweeping the Citadel. Next, up a midweek clash with the Indiana Hoosiers. Can anyone chop these trees down?

Overall 2019 #iubase opponent results: 86-85 this weekend, 519-429 on the season

Carl’s current RPI Prediction Model: 36-19, 17-7 in B1G, #37 RPI, 3-seed in NCAA Regional
