I know he appeared in 4 games this last season, but James Sukanen from Hurley, WI will be a sophomore at Morris next season. Sukanen is listed at 6'7" and originally committed to play at UW-Eau Claire coming out of high school. I don't think he ever attending anything at UWEC.

He scored 1,665 career points in his high school career at Hurley (not sure if these numbers are right coming off wissports.net, but it's what they have listed).
Freshman: 127 (9.8 PPG)
Sophomore: 151 (15.1 PPG)
Junior: 516 (20.6)
Senior: 581 (24.2)

For those who may not be aware, Polkowski was a finalist for the same Superior job in '12. He ended up at Eau Claire under Superior's former coach and he clearly was very important to that program's success. I did learn that UW-Lacrosse tried to acquire Polkowski's services as well, but he ultimately chose his alma mater and to return home.

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

​Dear D3 Faithful ;D,
     I have read many of your posts throughout the years and even met some of you in person, but for those who I havenít met, let me introduce myself: my name is Michael Rejniak and I have spent over 14 years coaching Division 3 basketball and love what our division has done and continues to do for  the sport of basketball. One of the greatest things about Division 3 basketball is the brotherhood that we all have with one another (coaches and players alike). My wish is to showcase the talents of D3 on a national stage in The Basketball Tournament (TBT).  You may have heard me speak about this on the Hoopsville Marathon with Dave McHugh of D3hoops.com (at the 6:11 mark). The TBT is a national tournament that is televised in July/August on ESPN after the NBA season is over. My goal is to put forth an all-star D3 team (current players are ineligible) and have them compete in this tournament to take on Former D1 / semi-pro's to prove that D3 deserves the same respect as other NCAA divisions. The team is mostly complete with former student-athletes from all over the country competing. Once the roster is complete we will be sure to release it through d3hoops. Former Babson College National Champion Matthew Droney '17 will also be assisting me on this journey.

How YOU can help our former elite D3 basketball players

While the end prize of this tournament is a monetary prize, being a D3-lifer, the goal is not the money (we all know that's not why we get into coaching), the goal is to bring an end to the stigma of Division 3 basketball, an awareness of how talented our student-athletes are and that we can compete (and win) against the best. We do need to raise funds for an entry fee, travel, meal and housing expenses for the athletes. In order to do this, we are conducting a crowd-funding campaign through GoFundMe to help make this a reality. These athletes need your support! Just think -- if every Division 3 school donated just $10, we will have raised over $4,000!!!! The link to the GoFundMe Page is below and please SPREAD THE WORD and email me with any questions/concerns at WeAreD3TBT@gmail.com. Thank you in advance for your support and Dave and I look forward to this "D3 Dream Team" taking the court this summer.-Mike Rejniak

big get for the Vikings... this dude can shoot and will probably be an immediate impact player for a team that loses a lot of production from their round of 32 team last year.
