Carthage fell to UChicago 76-52 and Augustana defeated Knox 57-55, so the league went 3-1 yesterday and is 8-2 so far.
Augie's Lauren Hall led all players in her game with 20 pts and 10 rebs.

RogK, thanks for all the updates. 

Elyce Knudsen on a tear . . .  her numbers are awesome, Sosa-esque.  Surely Ms. Knudsen the CCIW Player of the Week, likely many times this year.

IWU opens at Wittenberg this Friday.  We'll start to see what this new creation is all about . . .

Great weekend at The Shirk for the men, with the Jack Sikma Hall of Fame Invitational . . . games 5 and 7 p.m. on Friday, 4 and 6 p.m. on Saturday.  IWU, Hope, St. Thomas, and UW-Oshkosh . . . the joys of top-flight D3 hoops, early in the season.  Big Jack and tons of IWU Academic All-Americans, and other returning players, in the house.

Good luck to all the CCIW women's teams this season . . . I hope good for all, with very few injuries.

No late-game drama last evening : Millikin cruised to a 77-49 win over Beloit while Elmhurst took one on the chin 103-73 at Aurora.

IWU opens its season at Wittenberg in Ohio on Friday.  I'm assuming that the starting line-up includes Eck, Bowen, Lansford and Heller . . . but not sure about the situation of the TITAN bigs, replacing Brovelli.  We'll see after tomorrow what the starting line-up and the rotation starts to look like.  Seems several newbies, previous pine-sitters, even freshmen, will be in the rotation.

Good luck to the TITANS as they start the 21-22 campaign.

Tomorrow evening NPU will be joining Wheaton at the latter's Beth Baker Classic. The Vikings will play Otterbein while Wheaton faces Maryville on Friday, and then the two CCIW teams switch opponents on Saturday afternoon. Neither Ott nor Murvul has played a game yet this season, so I have no read on either opponent.

Under normal circumstances I'd consider taking the train out to Wheaton to watch Friday night's games in person. But this Saturday and Sunday will be chockablock full of tournament soccer at NPU that I'll be calling, so I'm going to stay in tomorrow evening and take it easy in front of the computer watching the games on Wheaton's stream.

Otterbein is interesting.  They went 8-4 in their shortened season and returns everybody including OAC Freshman of the year, Katie McCrary.  I guess the Vikes will see tonight.

Maryville is coming off a respectable 12-2 season but did graduate some key players. 

In any case, I expect two nights of pretty competitive games at King Arena.

The weekend games at Wheaton are missing from the Composite Schedule on cciw.org.
And no current season stats are on the site.

C'mon, Wheaton, throw us a bone here. No live stats, no screen graphic to indicate the score. I had to wait until the wide shot showing the scoreboard at the end of the quarter before I knew what the score was.

I agree 100%.  When Wheaton goes to a tournament we are always treated better with the same announcers the home team gets with stats.  If you cant treat games that Wheaton does not participate the same as they treat you maybe its time to consider cancelling tournaments.  Its your tournament.  When I watch Wheaton games in others tournaments we are nearly always treated the same as the home team.  We Wheaton fans really appreciate it.

The graphic is there now, so at least we can follow the score.

Otterbein 68
North Park 61

The Vikings lost their composure down the stretch, blowing a lead and then fading. Their case of the yips, and the fact that they couldn't hit a jumper to save their lives, cost them a winnable game against a not-all-that-great opponent. A shame, too, because NPU played really terrific defense for large stretches of the game. That's the most hopeful sign, because a defense that good is going to keep them in games, even when they're not making shots.

Wheaton  58  (23/69 FG, 33.3%)
Maryville 49  (18/60, 30%)

It was a win.  The positives pretty much end there.   Ok - the Thunder were +12 on the boards including +9 (16-7) on the offensive glass.  But the Scots are not a particularly good team and Wheaton only led by 5 pts with 4 minutes remaining.

It’s just the second game.  But there is not much evidence yet that anyone not named Annie Tate (22 pts, 6 rebs) can score points with any normal efficiency.  The three point shooting was an atrocious 5/29 for 17%.  The fact that they kept shooting them was mind-boggling.

IWU led by 10 at the half vs. Wittenberg, but had a horrible 3Q and lost 68-59.   

Lansford the top scorer for IWU with 14, Eck 9.  As I feared, this Titan team is going to be challenged on the offensive end, shooting a poor percentage and not having much of a three ball threat. 

Could be a long year . . .

Agreed.  That's really poor and not a good look for Wheaton where in general they do a good job of broadcasting both men's and women's on campus sports outside of perhaps tennis and swimming (there might be logistical or technical reasons for those perhaps?).  If you're going to have it live streamed, do it right.  I'm going to send an e-mail to the Sports Information Department.  Seems like a good place to start to at least have the issue addressed.  This might be the only chance Maryville and Otterbein parents/fans have to interact with Wheaton.
