Back by popular demand: Our predix

We at LadySwish like posting what our fans and followers enjoy reading. And it seems our predictions, lofty as they were, were a popular feature that our readers would love to see again. So we're bringing them back, and remember, we don't mind if you chide us for being wrong as long as we can crow when we're right.

Drumroll, please, along with our thoughts.....

Monday, Nov. 19:

Texas Southern at Norfolk State, 6 p.m.
NSU 77, Texas Southern 58
Says LadySwish: We see new coach Cynthia Cooper-Dyke working her magic with this program in time, but for now we expect the Spartans to take advantage of the turnover-prone Lady Tigers (0-2) just as they did a year ago.
Tuesday, Nov. 20
UMKC at VCU, 7 p.m.
UMKC 78, VCU 64
Says LadySwish: Rebuilding Rams (0-3) likely to struggle against a UMKC team picked to finish second in the Summit League. Hoping for a big night from VCU's Robyn Parks.
Longwood at Coppin State, 6 p.m.
Coppin State 85, Longwood 69
Says LadySwish: We'd love to see the Lancers win this, but on the road, against a Coppin team that nearly upset Wake Forest forces us give the nod to the MEAC team.
Old Dominion at Maryland-Eastern Shore, 6 p.m.
ODU 81, Maryland-Eastern Shore 57
Says LadySwish: Yep, we remember these Lady Monarch losing this game a year ago, and we bet they do, too. We don't expect a repeat. Hawks are 1-1 (pummeled by George Mason 64-38); ODU is 3-0.
Liberty at Texas A&M, 8 p.m.
Texas A&M 84, Liberty 53
Says LadySwish: We hate to pick against one of our own again, but despite the Aggies 0-3 start (the losses were to Louisville, Penn State and UConn), we like 'em big here.
