North Central bounced back from a poor shooting night up at Carroll with a 91-78 win over Millikin in Naperville. Mayson Whipple went off for a career high 36 (tying for the third highest mark in program history), and Michaela Reedy scored 19 on a perfect shooting night (6-6, including 5-5 from beyond the arc, and 2-2 at the line). Yanni Sadler paced the Big Blue with 23.

Cardinals shot something like 42 percent from beyond the arc and thanks to Millikin intentionally fouling a ton in the final minutes NCC got to pad its free throw percentages a little bit.

On a non-NCC related note I’ll echo the well wishes for Zakiya Newsome and hope for a speedy recovery.

Always sorry to hear about injuries, esp. if serious, needing surgery.  I hope just a strain.  Sending good wishes to Ms. Newsome for a speedy and full recovery.

Hard to know at this stage in the season which teams might make the CCIW tournament.  My guess from what I've seen so far would be IWU, WC, EC and Augie.  Time will tell.  10-11 games to go, so here we go down the stretch to late February, then the D3 dance in March.

Couldn't watch but looks like a very solid win for Wheaton.  I saw live stats early and neither team was shooting well in the first half.  But the Thunder ladies did enough to get the win.  Saw Jordan Myroth with early points and hope she continues to assert herself.  Hannah Frazier and Kelly Lawson with 10 boards each, Kyler and Dansdill with 9.  Keep it going!

Newsome's injury is her right knee and I'd assume she'll miss several games, at least. She was attended to in the gym by trainers. Never fun to see anyone get injured; best wishes to her for a quick mend, if possible.

The word I was given was that a torn ACL is suspected. I hope that that report was premature and exaggerated. Zakiya Newsome is one of NPU's most important players.

It is always an exciting and surprising point in the season. The midway point. We are already halfway through another thrilling Division III basketball season. The best part, we have plenty more basketball to come. The hard part, we are also closer to the season coming to a close.

On Thursday night's Hoopsville, Dave will try and pull out his crystal ball and read the tea leaves on who can sustain their momentum, who may fall off, and which teams could make a run to the end. While we won't have all the answers, some of Dave's guests will be able to give us their insight on their own squad's chances.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch the show LIVE starting at 7pm here: http://bit.ly/2D3pOrw.

A reminder the Thursday edition of Hoopsville primarily covers the East, Mid-Atlantic, Great Lakes, and West regions, but we will answer any questions about all of Division III throughout the show. You can also send your questions to the show and have them featured on the Hoopsville Mailbag segment. Email them to hoopsville@d3hoops.com.

Guests include (in order of appearance):
- Matt Croci, No. 10 Wittenberg men's coach
- Jim Scheible, No. 7 Rochester women's coach
- Lori Kerans, Millikin women's coach (WBCA Center Court)
- Danny Young-Uhrich, No. 17 Juniata women's
- Pat McKenzie, No. 15 St. John's men's coach

From what I saw of Wheaton in Nashville playing my beloved Royals.They have a nice team probably one of the tallest teams I have seen Scranton play.It was pretty awesome seeing them in the middle of the court after the game holding hands.Great job to Wheatons coaching staff and players.

Wheaton’s 3 pt shooting this season has been pretty average which is less effective than they’ve been used to in past seasons.  They defended the 3 pt arc very poorly in some earlier games but have been better lately.   Mentioned Kelly Thornton in an earlier post who decided not to return for her senior junior year of playing.  She was one of the better Thunder players shooting from the arc.

Kelly is actually a junior, and also plays volleyball and softball. As one could imagine, a 3 sport athlete’s life was packed, and basketball was the sport she decided to drop. Thunder definitely missing her stroke from behind the arc.

It's Alumni Day at NCC today, so there will be some festivities prior to tonight's game with Wheaton. There's an alumni game I think at 2, and they will have an introductory ceremony at halftime.

Before the game we're also doing a little ceremony to honor former Cardinal point guard Helen Muleya who passed away last spring. The Cardinals will have special warmups for the occasion, and I think we're also presenting Helen's jersey to her parents. Going to be an emotional late afternoon/early evening.

Really, as long as Wheaton doesn't jump out to a 15-0 lead again to start the game, I think it should be fine.

Softball is easily her best sport.

In Chicago, the Titans led 17-7 after the first quarter and never looked back, beating the Vikings 83-53.  VERY balanced scoring for IWU, with six players in double digits.
