OLIVET @ calvin - 4
TRINE @ Alma - 3
Albion @ HOPE - 2
ADRIAN @ Kalamazoo - 1
I won't speak to anyone else, but I'm certain Hope's sub-par defense and shallow roster would have been an issue in conference play, regardless of who they played in their non-conference games.

Jonathan Farmer, a former Bowdoin basketball player and captain, was one of the 4 American soldiers killed in Syria the other day by a suicide bomber. I wasn't paying attention to Bowdoin basketball during that period so don't remember him but still very close to home. He was just 37 years old and leaves behind a wife and 4 young children.  Here is the statement by Bowdoin President Clayton Rose. What a heart-breaking story . .

Sad news indeed but thanks for posting.  Farmer played well before I started following Bowdoin basketball but he represents the very best of the young men that I had the privilege to meet.  While the NESCAC has some truly gifted players, what makes it a standout conference is that many of these players are such high quality people off the court as well.

If Linfield isn't back in the Pack.... of the top 5... I'll eat my hat at a mud drag in Willammina!  :P

Hi, my friend. Nice to hear from you. Glad you survived the holidays. I also hope Linfield gets back in the thick of it this year. So, Go 'Cats and Go Raiders in 2019!  :o  ;D

I noticed the same thing, Kiko. And a pretty clear line of demarcation seems to have emerged between the top six and the bottom three since Preston Laketa vanished into the ether and Carthage went into the tailspin that's seen the Red Men lose five of six since New Year's Day.

Within the last eight days the Red Men came within an eyelash of upsetting Augie at Carver and managed to hang around with North Central in the airplane hangar for forty minutes, but they've now been swept by a Big Blue team that will very likely be the team clinging to sixth place. The H2H tiebreaker for the Decaturites over Carthage looms big; it's essentially the same thing as Millikin having an extra game in hand in the standings over the Red Men.

That makes sense if the Big Blue finish as number six, but IMO it is too early to lock them into that slot.  Millikin travels to Faganel next Saturday, and while road wins are not easy, I could see them potentially jumping the Jays in the end if they win that contest.  Elmhurst beat Carthage in the first meeting but the second leg is still to come, so if there is an Elmhurst/Carthage tie, the tiebreaker is still undecided.  That said, it is probably an academic discussion as the Reds would need a serious turnaround if they are to pull out of the free fall they are in at present.

I would not discount Colin Jones arrival as being a bigger factor than the schedule.

Agreed! The Train has been a big part of how Olivet has played in the last month or so. The ability to draw a charge also makes teams play a different game driving to the hoop. I just think that the tough schedule and the lack of home games helped Olivet in the MIAA too.
