Nichols fell back down to earth last night, losing to Timon 82-59.

Even with a win over Olean, Nichols still did not deserve your #1 Small School rank.

Buffalo News/Keith McShea & Pollsters have it right with Nichols ranked #5, Olean #1 and Silver Creek #2.

Nichols has a strong frontcourt and that's how they were able to take advantage of Olean w/o Eckstrom in the IAABO Tournament. Their backcourt is weak and now that MMAA league play has started, you'll see Nichols' true ability, which was evident in last night's loss.

St. Joe's vs. Canisius on Sat 1/12/13 @ Koessler Center on the campus of Canisius College. The Varsity game will start at 2pm, after the Freshmen and Junior Varsity Games. I would recommend purchasing reserved seating prior at either high school.

Keith voted Silver Creek #1, Olean was #1 in the poll.

I don't really follow the logic of how Olean, who lost to Nichols without Eckstrom, and is still without Eckstrom, should have been ranked ahead of Nichols this week. I agree with the "fall back to earth" theory, but I think you wait for it to happen and vote based on what's before you at that time.

I really don't follow the logic of Nichols beat Olean so Silver Creek is better than Olean, but not Nichols. I think if you move Silver Creek past Olean, Nichols HAS to go there too. Mind you, this is all as of Sunday when votes are due.

Also, Nichols owns wins against Clev Hill and Maryvale, both quality small schools. Nichols is also a small school, and that's what they are measured against. I think Olean without Eckstrom would have experienced even greater struggles at Timon last night.

I'd like to see Silver Creek play Timon, Olean or similar schools.

Nichols should be aiming to be the Class B rep from MMA, they can be competitive with the large schools, but they should sweep NC, O'Hara, Walsh, and it comes down to the matchup against St. Mary's

Tune in to Prep Talk TV tonight at 9 pm, where I'll be a guest on the show. Keith McShea & I will discuss how we each voted (differently) in the most recent poll, among other things.
