Instead of Random Guy, I would have gone with "Custodian who just wants everyone to get the hell out."

Or "shadowy figure who sleeps under the bleachers."

You could have both. Just reduce the number of parents by one. Maybe one's a single mom.

I went out to the cornfields when my alma mater played La Crosse. Saw I guy I recognized as an employee 20 years previous. I walked up to him, said hi and asked him his name. He said his name and then said, "You don't know me." I said I do know him and questioned where he worked about 20 years ago. He eneded up being the head cook in the cafeteria. So, instead of random guy, I should have said, "1 retired head cook."

OK, so add one retired head cook and subtract the single mom.

So, another crappy game day on the Lake Michigan shoreline. Wonder if any games will be postponed (again)...

With two weeks to go in the regular season, here's where we stand:

1. #16 Benedictine (*) 16-1 (18-4)
2. Aurora (x) 12-4 (14-7)
3. Concordia Wisconsin (x) 11-4 (13-7)
4. Wisconsin Lutheran 8-8 (11-10)
4. Dominican 8-8 (11-10)
4. MSOE 8-8 (9-11)
---
7. Rockford 7-10 (8-14)
8. Lakeland 6-10 (8-12)
9. Marian 5-12 (6-16)
10. Concordia Chicago 4-12 (5-16)
10. Edgewood 4-12 (4-17)
(*) Clinched a share of the regular-season NACC title and the No. 1 seed; (x) clinched a NACC Tournament berth

Looks like it's going to be time to get the abacuses out for tiebreaker calculations pretty soon. Aurora leads CUW by half a game for the No. 2 seed and a first-round bye; the Spartans won the first meeting and they play again in Mequon on Saturday. As far as the three tied tied for 4th, Dominican beat MSOE and lost to Wisconsin Lutheran with one more meeting against each team, while the two Milwaukee teams split their season series.

Looks like wveryone clinched except #8 Marian. They are done at 7-13. Lakeland has one game left at 6-13. They split, so I'm not sure what the tie-breakers are. I'm guessing it's their record against Benedictine. Obviously the Muskies have to beat them this weekend to finish at 7-13, so they would win the tie-breaker with a 1-1 record against Benedictine.

Interestingly, the NACC is going to an 8-team format, different from their 6-team format in previous years, at least according to this site.

According to the NACC website (http://www.naccsports.org/sports/mbkb/2016-17/tournament), only six teams are in the tournament...

1. #12 Benedictine   (*) 18-1   (20-4)
2. Aurora (x)   14-5   (16-8)
3. Concordia (Wis.) (x)   13-6   (15-9)
4. Wisconsin Lutheran (x)  11-8   (14-10)
5. Milwaukee Engineering   (x) 10-9   (11-12)
6. Dominican    9-10   (12-12)
---------------------------------------
7. Rockford   8-11   (9-15)
8. Marian   7-13   (8-17)
9. Lakeland   6-13   (8-16)
10. Edgewood   5-14   (5-19)
11. Concordia-Chicago   4-15   (5-19)

(*) Clinched a share of the regular-season NACC title and the No. 1 seed; (x) clinched a NACC Tournament berth

Final games of the regular season are all on Saturday -
Lakeland @ Benedictine
Edgewood @ Aurora
Wisconsin Lutheran @ Dominican
Concordia Wisconsin @ Concordia Chicago   
MSOE @ Rockford

So right now the abacuses can be put away for the most part...Rockford is out, due to going 0-2 with Dominican so even if they won and Dominican lost, they'd still lose the tiebreaker.

The only spots still being contested are the #4 and #5 seeds. If Wisc. Lutheran wins or MSOE loses, Lutheran would  be #4.  If Wisc. Lutheran loses and MSOE Wins, then their conference record is tied.  The two teams split their season series 1-1, then the abacuses would come out.   Either way, they will face each other on Wednesday, February 22.

That being said, here is the NACC Tournament as it stands now...

First Round - Wednesday, February 22, 7 p.m.
#5 seed at #4 seed
#6 Dominican at #3 Concordia Wisconsin

Semifinals - Friday, February 24, 7 p.m.
#4/5 seed winner at #1 Benedictine
#3/6 seed winner at #2 Aurora

Final - Sunday, February 26, 2 p.m.

Ok. Thanks. Hope Dave or Pat can fix that on the tourney tracker page.

I think they moved to a six team conference tournament in order to bolster Strength of Schedule but don't quote me on that.

MSOE would win the tiebreaker because they have beaten Aurora and WLC hasn't. (Each team has 1 win over CUW, so whether the Falcons tie for 2nd is irrelevant for this.)

However, as mentioned above, MSOE would need both results  today in their favor before they'd have to worry about a tiebreaker.

Nope. (This actually happened last year, when both lower seeds won the first round games.)

Okay, doesn't seem equitable to #1 seed.

At a glance, it appears that only three of the 42 conferences in Division III men's basketball reseed.
