I have been told they will show up in Springfield in a few months.
You never say directly that these are basketball recruits. Are they, or are you just assuming that they are? Could it be that these are three kids who just want to attend Wittenberg, for whatever reason, just like hundreds of others each year?
Another interesting schedule for the Scots, with a heavy presence of teams coming off good-but-not-great seasons, including high finishers in three of the toughest conferences in D3 hoops.
Van Wie: Figure UST (17-9, 2nd place MIAC) to take on Stout (13-11, t4th WIAC) in the first round, with Wooster meeting K'zoo (7-18). UST was at the Van Wie two season ago, losing to Wooster by 12. Scot fans will recall losing at Kalamazoo 3 season back, one of just 3 losses (Witt, Williams) in the run to national 3rd place. Don't be lulled by Stout's ordinary record; any upper-division WIAC team is a threat to beat anybody, anywhere, anytime.
E&H Invite: Methodist was 20-8, and won the USAC regular season and tournament titles. Shenandoah, who played Wooster close in January, finished 3rd in that conference. Thomas More (7-18) is joining the PrAC this year, and might be moved into the GL Region by the NCAA. If so, this could be one of a maximum six non-conference regional games for the Scots. E&H was 10-15 but is always a threat under legendary coach Bob Johnson; they beat ODAC champ VWC in January, when VWC was 11-0.
Mose Hole: We all know about B-WC (20-9), who will have Tori Davis back. Lycoming went 17-8 and will doubtless face the Jackets in the first game. Thiel (8-19) gets the traditional first-round thumping this year, the spot that used to be CWRU's.
W&J Classic: The hosts (10-18) were terrible last year, and SUNY-Maritime (3-22, 1-13 in the abysmal Skyline Conf.) was worse. New Jersey was 17-9 and finished 2nd (to Ramapo) in the NJAC, and I'd expect them the be the Scots' first round opponent.
And Wittenberg before Christmas? Wow.
