The UAA goes 2-2 tonight...

Emory had all five starters in double figures in an easy win over Sewanee.  I think Emory has a case for the No. 2 ranking next week, but so do a few other teams, so...

Carnegie Mellon defeated Bethany, 86-80.

Case Western Reserve was in the game against John Carroll before falling, 82-75. 

Brandeis moves to 2-2 after falling to Suffolk, 72-57.

+1 Thanks for that detailed answer.

I figured there was an interesting answer and you provided it.

Is it System-lite relative to Grinnell or relative to Greenville? Honest question...

As mentioned in the CCIW thread, Chicago (1-2) lost to Illinois Wesleyan, 78-74.

I mention this primarily to point out that we have an early leader in the UAA first-year player of the year race.  Bryce Hopkins is averaging 14 points and 4 rebounds per game for the Maroons.  Hopkins had 14 tonight in just 18 minutes.

Chicago hosts DePauw on Friday for a chance to play Nebraska Wesleyan or St. Thomas.

Maybe you can take your concerns on the new sportsmanship rules to Twitter.  Or maybe a monthly update.

Just a quick UAA update...

NYU lost to the University of New England last night. 

They are surely happy to get Feldman back, but have been without Dom Cristiano.  They do have an intriguing freshman guard in Miles Somerville, but will probably need Cristiano to avoid finishing at the bottom of the conference yet again.

Brandeis defeated Emerson 76-74 after a final 20 seconds or so that included a controversial Emerson charging foul and an Emerson kicked ball.  Those calls were probably right, but they were close.  Brandeis shot 12-25 from the perimeter.

I was just looking around.

Yeshiva is not going to have much of a chance to prove themselves this week with two winless teams on the schedule.

I have to think that voters will look at UW-Platteville, but I have my biases.

Johns Hopkins has York on the schedule this weekend.

Whitworth surely has the schedule this weekend to break in to the Top 25.

How many schools get dropped?

I guess we have to wait and see.

UW-Platteville defeats Washington University for the second straight year.

The Pioneers built an early 9-11 point lead and held that lead for the game.  The Bears struggled to contain Quentin Shields last season and struggled again tonight.  Shields led the way with 29 points.  The Bears had 4-5 or more players assigned to him and no one had an answer.  Not the best night on either end.

Washington University goes 1-1 against the WIAC with Eau Claire coming to town next weekend.
__________

In other games tonight, Rochester defeated Heidelberg to move to 3-0 on the season and NYU defeated Mitchell to move to 1-2.

Whitewater nearly pulls off the big upset over Wash U last night.

I can fill you in.

Kale and Ards are special players.  They were excuting.  Incidentally, Massey listed  the game as an upset by Washington University,  gave the Bears a 37% chance of winning.  30% chance of beating Platteville.

It is a sample size of one game, but I seriously think those two transfers are going to make some noise in the WIAC.  Whitewater needs a bit more from everyone else.

Washington University over UW-Whitewater, 90-86.

The Bears come roaring back from a 15 point first-half deficit to eventually take a 13 point lead thanks in part to a 13-0 run.  The Bears eventually decided to slow the game down but the Warhawks had other ideas and came roaring back to get within two.

Hardy had 25 points and 9 rebounds while Nolan finished with 24 points and three steals.  Freshmen Spencer Boehm had a quality game scoring 10 points in 17 minutes.  The team shot 47% from the perimeter.  70% from the line and made them when they mattered most.

Coach Miller did not stop complaining about the officiating but he is delusional if he thinks his team got the worst of the calls.  His technical cost the team two points, but Washington University had a three-pointer waved off due to a failure to reset the shot clock by the officials so...

Fontbonne was a Cody McKinney three-point shot away from evening the score with Simpson College with 6 seconds left, but to no avail.  Conor Riordan got the rebound and was fouled.  Fontbonne falls 84-79 in a far more respectable result.

No, the worst case scenario is every team getting 15 technicals this weekend and there not being a SLIAC tournament.

That is awesome...

By the way, I loved your article on the matter.

I had a good laugh with the idea that the athletic directors needed diversity training to better understand that Iowa Wesleyan is recruiting kids from well outside the region and that soccer is played differently elsewhere and the various implications for basketball.

Here in Catholic St. Louis, it is definitely Mary-ville.

That makes for a nice subplot.
