The new NP logo is boring.  I always thought that the longship was kind of weird with regards to perspective (the angle the ship was going took me a while to get used to) but it was definitely clear what school it belonged to and was incredibly unique.  I hope Greg's Avatar is linked to a page owned by him, otherwise that ship might sail too as the school will surely work to eliminate all references to the previous logo.

Sad news out of Naperville, as I found out former Cardinal point guard and 2012 North Central grad Helen Muleya passed away yesterday. I don't know details other than it was very sudden. Haven't heard anything about arrangements yet either.

I'm sorry to hear that as well. It's always a tragedy when someone that young dies.

Zakiya Newsome, a 5'6 point guard from Glenbard North, has deposited at North Park.

I was wondering if Gabby Sandoval would need to play 37 minutes per game next season, but it sounds like NP is getting additional ballhandlers to help out.

Two of NPU's recruits are point guards ... plus, Elise Estelle will be back after missing January and February.

Heard some rumblings that North Central is actually looking for a new assistant coach for the women's basketball program.  Sounds like Michelle Roof is hoping to have someone in place by July but doesn't have a particular candidate in mind.

Last check on North Central's website doesn't have any openings yet, but I imagine there will be something soon.

I don't know how long it's been up, but the posting is officially up for NCC's opening for an Assistant Coach and Recruiting Coordinator.

The word "system" is nowhere to be found in that posting. ;)

Good catch, Greg.  I see four main possibilities:

1.  It's simply an oversight.  (doubtful)

2.  They've decided to transition back to a more traditional style.  (somewhat doubtful, as they've had some success with it by historical standards)

3.  They want a way to quickly 'screen out' applicants who are so lacking in doing their homework that they don't already know that NCC runs the system.  (entirely possible)

4.  They believe they have sufficiently adapted the system to their own preferences that they don't want to look like 'Arsenault groupies'.  (I suspect some combination of #3 and #4 is the answer)

When I talked to them for the story last year, they see themselves in the tradition of Bunky Harkleroad (who was the first coach to play the System with women) - while their version actually looks a lot more like what Arsenault Jr is bringing to Grinnell (with more NBA inspired spacing as opposed to the constant screens), they seem to think of it as a separate offense.  I doubt they use "System" in their own terminology very much - at least with a capital S.

Yeah, my post was very much tongue-in-cheek ... hence, the emoji.

Truthfully, I would've been very surprised if familiarity with North Central's playing style was listed as part of the job description.
