Penn Stuns Villanova (2018-19 Season Upset Thread)

Recommended Posts

o

 

Villanova had beaten the University of Pennsylvania 15 straight times in basketball, dating back to December of 2002.

Additionally, Villanova had won 25 consecutive games against Big 5 opponents (Temple, La-Salle, St. Joseph's, and Penn.) The last time that they lost to any of these opponents was in December of 2012, against Temple.

 

Both of those streaks were snapped tonight, as the Quakers stunned the defending national champions by a score of 75-72 at The Palestra.

 

NOTE: ) Penn head coach Steve Donahue coached Cornell to the Sweet Sixteen in 2010 ........ that was the first time than any Ivy League School had made it that far in the NCAA tournament since Penn made it to the Final Four in 1979.

    • Can you give us a reference about where the evidence is for how "very few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70s"?     Maybe my statistical search is not looking in the same place.     Yeah, the junk baller who won our last World Series game probably ever.    Just watch the video and honestly tell me you think this guy couldn't pitch today.     
    • So few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70's that I just find it unlikely from a statistical standpoint.  I'm not old enough to remember late 70's McGregor.  The guy I remember in the 80's was more of a junkballer.
    • At the same time, you cited 103 mph as the reason older generation hitters would not do well today.  Exaggeration goes both ways in making a point about which I too was trying to communicate...i.e.  I do believe that many 1980s era players could certainly play well and thrive in today's game.     And that some of the pitching skill sets today might even be more valuable in today's game than they were back then.   Even if the velocity is not the same.         I certainly accept that the game is played differently today, different after the steroid era, and that the athletes playing it perform those aspects of the game differently than their predecessors.   Still haven't found the speed gun ratings on Scott in high school, but I suspect they were pretty good....I might just ask him...   Scott McGregor, El Segundo (Calif.), 1972 Although a teammate of Hall of Famer George Brett (as a sophomore and junior), it was McGregor who garnered more headlines during his three-year career under El Segundo legendary coach John Stevenson. McGregor was a three-time All-CIF selection and was twice named Player of the Year. He was also a Rawlings All-American as a senior. He set section records (which still stand) for career wins (51), career shutouts (20), shutouts in a season (9), and consecutive no-hitters (2). He also set the section record for career strikeouts (which has since been broken) with 496. He was the No. 14 overall pick in 1972 draft by the Yankees, but he was eventually traded to Baltimore. 
    • He's the top, He's the Colosseum! He's the top, A cornerstone of the Te-am! -- Pole Courter, from the musical "Anything Counts"  
    • You asked about velocity right? I love how you keep mentioning inner circle HoF players.  No word on how Frank Torre would do.  By concentrating on the top .1% you are missing out on an important issue I tried to relay to you.  Your average hitter is a lot more dangerous.   
    • And I think that’s fair. I’m just saying that I think it’s quite possible he would get that bump in today’s game given the emphasis on K’s from a pitching standpoint and hitter’s aggression and willingness to strike out.  It’s definitely a different game though. 
    • Yeah, I am sure Frank Robinson and Hank Aaron would have been just terrified by Kevin Gausman and Tommy Hunter.....lol.
