The Webster Women's basketball team defeats Augustana.  It is early but Massey has the undefeated Gorlocks ranked No. 50.

6-1 Case Western Reserve is leading John Carroll, 70-53 with over 15 minutes left in the game.  The Spartans are 14-20 from three point range and 29-45 overall.  John Carroll is 5-19 from the perimeter.

Thanks guys.  I have seen Greenville play a few times, but as far as I can tell, they are not as stringent when it comes to the goals/targets/substitutions

As an aside, I have a friend who played at Monmouth during the first few years of the Dave Arsenault-era and he said every game with Grinnell involved a different approach to the offense.

For example, in one game, Grinnell left a guard and forward under the opposing team's basket for the entire second half.  Those players never crossed back across the half court line.

I can only assume this is true.

It could be worse...  Look at a map of the Great Lakes Valley Conference. Not a single institution Northeast of I-74 and more schools in Missouri than Illinois and Indiana combined.

I do like the name though.

I thought I read that the CCIW needed Wheaton to play in the bowl thing to have a chance.

I spoke too soon, apparently.  My hat is off to River Falls on becoming the first to win the first ever bowl game hosted in Wisconsin.

I do think Webster could work their way out of the weak team category this season.  Especially after the non-conference schedule they have ahead.

It is hard to say as they are 1-1 against non-scholarship, Division III teams, but they have a few freshmen and sophomores (including one that missed the first game, but featured heavily in the game on Tuesday) that look very good.  I have only watched a few SLIAC games so far, but Webster played the best game I have seen.

Tufts knows what I am thinking about. Brandeis too.

Just kidding. I know nothing of their opponents.

It is a fair question, but I remain convinced that going 600 or more days without a meaningful game is going to affect the early season performance of a team.

It easy to forget, given the circumstances, but the majority of Division III teams, including 19 of 25 teams in the Top 25 had Spring 2021 seasons and played a game 7-8 months ago.

What can you say about that game? 

Webster gets their second win in three seasons.

Webster played a tough, physical game and found ways to score while Washington University struggled.  At one point, two Bears were deep in the paint and missed on four consecutive layups.  It was that kind of night.

The Bears played without a starter and without a projected starter so they could see an immediate boost if one or both return.  Bears get another shot a week from tonight.

I've watched and read Friday Night Lights enough times to think that the Wheaton coach would have his boys ready to go out with a bang at Butter Burger Bowl but what do I know?

I think that as time goes on this is going to be a pretty special thing that CCIW and WIAC football fans will anticipate each year.

Agreed!

Hats off to Mike Shaw who, as he said, is quite an unlikely candidate for starting a bowl game but did it nonetheless.

I know it means a lot for the one team between the two conferences (I believe) that did not get to play in 2020-2021.
