There are always many admirable players to be found on CCIW WBB rosters. Here's a piece about one of them.

I believe that final paragraph is a perfect example of "#WhyD3". Always great to praise not only the athletic side of things, but the academics and the extracurriculars outside of sports, too.

One Sophia, two Hannahs, a Zeller and a Considine will join Wheaton this autumn :

Probably only five of the newcomers will amount to anything.

Yes.  These look like solid adds, pretty good size.  Good students too.

Frazier has a pretty lengthy list of accolades.  Good that she has a D1 year under her belt for a very good team even if limited PT.

North Central's 2017-18 schedule is up. Actually have the full slate of 12 home games this year thanks to some home and homes coming back to Naperville (Benedictine, UWSP and Dubuque). Cardinals open the year November 17th at Wheaton's tournament. Also making a trip to Dallas the week after Christmas.

Weird schedule quirk has NCC-Elmhurst matchups on back to back Saturdays. Otherwise nothing to complain about as far as CCIW schedule.

Don't have a roster for NCC yet, though that's normal for late July as memory serves.

I did see that Wheaton's schedule is up. The Beth Baker Classic that North Central is playing in also features Louisiana College and Lake Forest College. I'm assuming this will end up being NCC and Wheaton playing those two teams, though the order in which they play is still to be determined.

Nice attendance numbers for the CCIW in 2016-17. According to the NCAA, the conference ranked seventh in average attendance.

What the? Is it just me, or is it getting darker outside?

Maddie Murillo, a 6'0 sophomore, is listed on the Augie roster. Last year she was a freshman at North Park, and the NPU coaches had high hopes for her. However, she quit the team within the first few practices, although to the best of my knowledge there was no animosity expressed by either her or the coaches. She simply decided not to play. We'll see if her interest in playing has really been rekindled by a change of scenery, I guess.

Looks like Augie has recruited another basketball player who will be well qualified to move on to their renowned medical school. Freshman woman basketball player Alexis Cassani, from St. Louis, prepped at the Collegiate School of Medicine and Bioscience. ⛹️‍♀️ 🎓 💼 💉  ;D
