"It's just the most competitive conference in the country when it comes to the percentage of close games," he said Tuesday morning during a conference call arranged by the CAA. "The players are aware of that, and we've told them that. We're big Ken Pom guys. We've hammered them with that. So every night is going to be a war. It's conference play. I told them yesterday that we've got the defending conference champs [in Northeastern] here tomorrow night and we've never beaten them since we've been here, and it's going to be a tough, hard-fought game. It's good to win five in a row. I'd like it if we could find a way to win another five in a row."
