Sweet Sixteen in WSoccer, Two top 25 Golf programs, MBB, MSoccer, Volleyball, and Softball all had postseason wins. Can't think of a school outside of Coastal that won anything in postseason besides a meaningless CBI game.
The ASUN had a great year, thanks in no small part to the "trade" of SC-Upstate for Liberty. Liberty also had a great year; probably our best ever. However, the idea that we could go from finishing second in both men's and women's sports last year in the BSC and win both this year in the ASUN if the ASUN is really that much better is pretty hard for me to swallow. The unprecedented success of ASUN teams in post season this year is impressive, but it is in fact unprecedented. History says they are not that good. Let's see what happens in the next couple of years. Sometimes tournament "upsets" come down to the luck of the draw, where you get a favorable matchup. One could argue that was the case with our MBB team. If the conference continues to win in the post season at anything resembling the rate they did this year, I'll concede the point. Till then, I'm in the "better, but not that much better" camp.
