What a wild, wild day in the SCAC. Southwestern sweeps Centenary, Dallas beats TLU, and Schreiner beats Trinity. Add in there were multiple walk-offs around the conference (Southwestern and UD each had walk-offs, and Austin College beat St. Thomas with a walk-off homer in game two), and it's one of the craziest days in the conference I can recall.

Well deserved for Coach Calver. From seeing UD play in the opening games of the year, it was clear they were DRAMATICALLY better than last season.

Colorado College advances due to Covid related protocols. What's unfortunate is that, as I understand it, Dallas was already in Colorado Springs.

Austin College with a pretty convincing win over Schreiner 80-63 to take on Trinity. So TLU and Colorado on one side, with neither team having to play to advance, while Austin College and Trinity will be on the other side of the bracket. Austin College got some players back from injury today, including one starter and one key reserve, and it clearly helped.

St. Thomas at TLU has been cancelled due to COVID concerns.   TLU will advance to play the winner of CC-UD.

What is wild is that, in theory, someone could win the conference tournament without ever playing a game if enough teams have to bow out due to Covid at the "right" time.

The Spring 2021 soccer season has started for schools in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC)(Trinity Texas, Texas Lutheran, Colorado College, South Western ...).

Some of the games this past weekend were canceled due to the weather.  Also, the SCAC  member schools are currently not allowing spectators at athletic events, but most of the games are available for streaming.  I have no connection to either school, but Texas Lutheran v. Southwestern on Sunday should be a good game.

Finally, I noticed is posting some scores from around the country on their scoreboard.

We have a long way to go, but maybe, just maybe, we have turned a corner.  Hopefully, the lessons learned this Spring will help programs around the country have a smooth season this Fall.

Trinity at Austin College has been postponed due to COVID-19 issues, unfortunately. The women's game is still going to be taking place but the men's match will hopefully be able to be made up later this spring.

SCAC has been solid about having tourneys this season ... like swimming & diving the weekend the Great Freeze of '21 got started.   Seeding will be fun given the differing number of games played but they'll figure it out. 

Lordy it would be nice if they would open it up to fans but I doubt they'll do it, even with COVID numbers on the decline they're still high.

At this point, Colorado College is almost certainly gonna be locked into the 1 seed, and Trinity the 2. CC has two home games against UD, so they should finish the season 7-1, and Schreiner and Trinity play, which I'm expecting to be two wins for Trinity, which puts TU at 7-2 and Schreiner at 5-3. If Schreiner steals one, that's when things get interesting. AC hasn't been playing great lately, in large part because they've had some significant injuries, so I wouldn't be surprised by them having a tough time at TLU this weekend. I'm hoping they sweep the weekend, but if they split, and Schreiner steals one from Trinity, then Schreiner will be the 3 and AC will be the 4 by virtue of how they each did against Trinity.

All SCAC competition cancelled through next Monday due to weather (and likely power) concerns.

Probably Covid testing concerns, as well, given both of those factors (weather and power) have probably impacted teams' abilities to get tested this week.

Millsaps has postponed this week's game due to weather.   Their remaining schedule:

Saturday, Feb. 27 at Austin College - 12 pm (which is a surprise given that Trinity is already on AC's schedule).
Saturday, March 6 at Hendrix College - 12 pm

Have seen no change for HX at Trinity, but the weather in San Antonio should be much more pleasant than last week in Jackson with highs near 50.   

But MAN the SAA schedule is a mess.   Showing two start times for BSC/Centre this week (1:30, 6:00pm).   Austin is now shown playing both Millsaps and Trinity next week, I guess AC and Trinity could play on March 6th, which is when  Rhodes is shown playing Rhodes.

The second AC/Trinity game is not going to take place at this point. The postponed Hendrix game will be on 3/6, and Millsaps/AC gets bumped to next weekend. So at this point, all of Millsaps, Hendrix, Trinity, and Austin College will have played each other at least once, if I'm not mistaken. So the first AC/Trinity game will be the one that counts toward the standings.

Shouldn't come as a surprise for anyone watching the horrific wrecks on the highway between Fort Worth and San Antonio, but tomorrow night's games between Austin College and San Antonio have been canceled. AC is still going to try to get down to San Antonio in time for Saturday's games.

Not at all surprised, honestly. Given the lack of teams playing across the country, combined with the fact that the NCAA would have to foot the bill without having the cash flow from last year's March Madness and College World Series, this always felt inevitable to me.

AC comes in at #9 in the first D3Hoops Top 10 of the year, with two votes for #1 (which I found interesting). The 'Roos were off this past weekend and head to St. Thomas this week for their first road games of the year. They've been hit by the injury bug quite a bit this year so hopefully they'll be able to get through this weekend and be back to nearly full strength by the time they have to head to Trinity.

Austin College pretty much dominated against Southwestern but the score wound up being closer than they'd have liked, winning 66-59 in Sherman. It was a 15 point game with about six minutes left before the Pirates started chipping away, as Austin College had an uncharacteristically poor performance at the free throw line (11-of-22 overall) and were unable to ice the game. In particular, Kacie West - who last year shot 81% from the line - was, shockingly, 0-for-5 tonight.

Ally Longaker continued her strong start to the year, scoring 21 points and grabbing 9 rebounds, but she was likewise poor from the FT line. Last year she shot 75%, tonight she was just 5-of-11. All 11 of Austin College's missed free throws came from those two seniors.

Another good win for Austin College over Dallas. The Crusaders were down a couple players, but still two good wins for the team picked to finish 8th over the team picked to finish 4th. The 'Roos don't have a lot of size, but they are FAST and if you can't either run with them or dictate the tempo yourself, you could be in a little bit of trouble.

Much better performance from Austin College today, and UD came back down to Earth a bit shooting the ball with an 86-52 final in Sherman. Keep an eye on 'Roo freshman Megan O'Neil out of Coppell, she's scored 15 in each of her first two games and is 6-of-11 on threes. Gonna be a heck of a player.

Dallas is still much improved - they're just very young and inexperienced, but they have some solid players and in a year or two have a chance to be in the mix for a top 4 or 5 seed in the tournament. I honestly believe that. Lots of youthful mistakes today but they've got some pretty good young players.

Exciting game in Sherman tonight. Austin College led for 39:57 out of 40 minutes, but needed a buzzer beating three to win since Dallas picked what seemed like the perfect time to take their first lead with 2.7 seconds left.
