Is OxyBob still doing color on some games?
Better yet, will he be interviewing the AD at halftime? :P
Donít pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, heíll just kill you.

I'd pay 12 bucks on Stretch for that.

Will be a great slate of games on Friday. It's interesting and coincidence that semi-finals are a rematch of the games from this past Saturday.

Oxy v Pomona will be really interesting - Pomona has been playing really well in 2018, with their only loss coming at CMS and at Oxy. Oxy winning yesterday gives them the 2 seed and home court which is important the SCIAC tournament. Oxy must keep the game low scoring and use their physicality to dominate the Pomona guards. Both teams are playing with confidence right now, but it does seem like Pomona is playing with momentum and is fresh off beating Oxy handily last weekend. They dominated Oxy in their own game, getting 18 offensive rebounds and holding them to 15pts in the 1st half.

CMS v Chapman will also be a good game. Chapman has played CMS tight in both games and in the 1st game had CMS down by double digits at one point (I'm not sure but that might be the only time in conference the Stags have trailed by double digits). In fact, it looks like Chapman has put CMS in its largest deficits in both games (down 12 @ Chapman and down 8 at home this past weekend). Chapman has the pieces on their team to be very dangerous and they are well coached and disciplined when running their stuff. They were effective this past weekend in getting to the rim on the Stags and Nelson has a career high 28 points. I'm sure both teams will look at the film and see plenty of areas where they could have improved. Chapman's back-up was more effective than their freshman starter, though neither really did much to stop the CMS 5s who scored a combined 28. The Stags will look at the box score and gladly take a win when Scarlett shots 6-17, President doesn't score from the field and they only shoot 6 FTs. I'd expect Scali to make some smart adjustments based on the film on both sides of the ball. Chapman will likely do they same - they had a full week to prepare with no games so there might be some wrinkles. This is very similar to 4 years ago when CMS played CLU one week apart and in the semis CLU completely changed their offensive scheme for the game against CMS and upset the Stags. I highly doubt that Chapman will go to that level given the coach is very principled in his stuff (some of their sets have been the same since for 15 years). I'd anticipate Chapman to be VERY aggressive trying to drive the lane, pick up foul count, and put the pressure on the Stag guards to defend the penetration.

Should be a fun Friday night!

The NCAA men's basketball regional advisory committees released their third set of rankings, and as expected, the Atlantic Region was among those getting shuffled. Here's the full list: http://www.d3hoops.com/notables/2018/02/men-regional-rankings-third

The same sets for the last 15 years. Hmmm, sounds like another SCIAC coach I know.

Haha sounds like a bunch of the SCIAC to be honest.. Interestingly enough, Scali actually runs few if any sets, but yet he's been running the same motion-style offense for the Stags during his 20 years, but that has been the way for CMS for even longer since David Wells and even at times with Ducey.

The differentiator is that sets are much easier to scout and plan against vs the motion which morphs as the defense adjusts.

Pomona 71 Oxy 60

Pomona played flawlessly, beating Oxy 71-60 in the SCIAC tournament semifinal. The Sagehens had 4 players in double figures, made 10 3-pointers and were 17-of-18 on FTs.

Pomona got off to a 12-5 lead, but Oxy came back and took its last lead of the game at 19-17 on a breakaway dunk by Cale Yellin-Flaherty. Pomona then ran off 12 straight to lead 29-19, and Oxy never caught up after that. Pomona led by as many as 16 in the second half. Oxy made it interesting by getting within 62-58 with 2:50 left, but after a timeout Pomona ran a give-and-go for an easy layup and that was that.

For Pomona, Micah Elan scored 19, including 5 3-balls, Daniel Rosenbaum and Adam Rees each had 13, and Corbin Koch scored 10.

For Oxy, Zach Baines scored 23, Jonny Crosthwaite had 16, including 4 3-pointers, and Yellin-Flaherty had 10.

Oxy finishes 19-7. Congratulations to Brian Newhall and the Tigers on a great season.

Very nice to see Oxy basketball royalty -- Connor Whitman and Henry Meier -- in attendance. Has it really been 10 years already?

Tonight at 7:00 p.m., No. 3 seed Pomona (15-11) will play at No. 1 Claremont (18-7) for the SCIAC tournament championship and the NCAA D-III tournament automatic bid. Claremont beat Chapman (17-9) 83-72 in the other SCIAC semifinal.

CMS and Pomona are both rolling. The Stags have won 15 straight, and the Sagehens have won 5 straight and 10 of 11. It's always a wild scene when Pomona and Claremont go at it. Well worth watching.

On the other hand...

SCIAC Tournament Final

Claremont 86 Pomona 62

No contest.

Pomona finishes (15-12, 12-4 SCIAC).

Claremont (19-7, 15-1) has won 16 straight. Good luck to the Stags in the NCAA tournament.

Congrats to the Stags! I was in complete shock watching the game - the CMS - PP games almost always close, particularly in the SCIAC tournament. It was a great win for Scali and the team - Lynds and Scarlett played a phenomenal game and President and Ely stepped up again on defense. Great team win from them.

Any thoughts on where they get sent based on where the Pool A bids are lining up? Are Texax and Minnesota / Wisconsin real options? I guess if there are 3 flights needed, then it opens CMS to end up somewhere besides Walla Walla. If there are only 2 flights needed, then my assumption is both will be sent to Walla Walla.
