Good to see another Coach Wacker at TLU.   Didn't take the Bulldogs long to find their man!

FYI, this week's Around the South column focuses on Texas Lutheran

http://www.d3hoops.com/columns/around-the-region/south/2016-17/wacker-texas-lutheran

I watched some of their game against Whitworth on Saturday night. They hung tough despite Holmes' injury limiting his time. I was impressed by what I saw.

The SCAC today announced that Johnson & Wales-Denver, an NAIA school making the transition to D3 starting in 2018 Fall 2017, will join the conference as a core member in 2018.   I'm sure they won't be eligible for championships until several years down the road as is typical for transitioning schools, but this will make a big difference in travel for basketball and soccer teams which used to have to play one day at Colorado College and another in Texas.

I don't know, I-25 from Colorado Springs to Denver is getting pretty congested these days.

Former Schreiner, TLU coach heading to Millsaps:   http://gomajors.com/news/2017/4/3/smith-named-head-mens-basketball-coach-at-millsaps.aspx#.WOKBkNJo610.twitter

Fine coach, from his record, the question is why does he move around more than Larry Brown?   That would give me pause if I was an administrator.

Saw this last week - HC Adam Walsh is leaving Centenary for the same position at Shenandoah:   http://www.gocentenary.com/mbasketball/news/2016-17/8296/adam-walsh-steps-down-as-gents-basketball-coach-after-seven-seasons/

Good hire for Shenandoah (his predecessor was 40-117 in six seasons), and Walsh returns to the area where he grew up. He'll be hard-pressed to have the same success in the ODAC that he had in the SCAC, but a new athletic center coming on line next season could help.
