CCIW 2016
« on: August 31, 2016, 10:35:47 am »
Let's get the ball rolling on the 2016 CCIW.  The preseason poll is out.
School                       Points    1st Place votes
1.Illinois Wesleyan    61          5
2. Wheaton               59          3
3. Augustana             48          1
4. Carthage                38
5. Elmhurst                35
6. Carroll                    35
7. North Central         25
8. Millikin                     15
9. North Park             11

With only 4 teams making it to the conference tournament it looks like it could be a tight race.

I am very interested to see how Carroll Coach Susie Foster does on her return to the CCIW.

Non-Conference looks to start with a full slate this weekend.
September 1st:
Edgewood at North Central, Franklin at Millikin, Bethel at Augustana, Beloit at Carroll, Dominican at Elmhurst, Benedictine at Illinois Wesleyan, and Carthage at Claremont-Mudd Scripps

September 2nd:
WashU at Wheaton, Albion at North Park, Lawrence at Carthage

September 3rd:
Olivet at Elmhurst, Illinois Wesleyan at Trinity, Benedictine at Carroll, Greenville at Millikin, Hope at Wheaton

September 4th:
Bethel at North Central, Olivet at North Park, UWSP at Augustana

September 5th:
Hardin-Simmons at Illinois Wesleyan

September 6th:
Wheaton at Loras

Looks like Wheaton and Illinois Wesleyan will be put to the test early.  Wheaton with regional powers WashU and Hope and Illinois Wesleyan with national powerhouses Trinity and Hardin-Simmons

Illinois Wesleyan also has to get by Thomas More. TMC is 7-3 over the past 3 years in the tourney, rated #9 in the NSCAA poll, and return 9 starters. It should be a good barometer for both teams.

Illinois Wesleyan has a few games before they play Thomas More.  That starts today with Trinity in San Antonio and Hardin-Simmons on Monday.
