Somebody's gotta step up and give congrats to Kienan Baltimore for being named POW, so I will.

Sometimes in life the biggest obstacle to overcome is yourself. The fact that he's had to work through his own issues makes him no less deserving than anyone else of our congratulations upon winning this award.


Agree 100% here.  He accepted his suspension and learned from it.  Steve D talked about it after the game as well.  Farmer and Baltimore got tangled up near the end of the game on Saturday and Farmer knee'd Baltimore in the face apparently.  I didn't see it and I'm not taking sides but the refs thought it a big enough deal that Farmer was given a flagrant foul and ejected from the game.  Baltimore just walked away.  I don't think he would have done that in the past.

As for not posting anything about his POtW honor...I knew he was in the running after the game he had vs Elmhurst, but assumed the 8 pt output vs. Millikin removed him from that conversation so much so that I didn't even check the CCIW website this week.

Highlights of the night by the NP announcer on the video stream (who I assume is Mr. Sager).   "Rim, glass, twine" as the description of a free throw that did exactly that.  Also describing a trip to the free throw line as a sojourn was well played.

Thanks! But it's "iron, glass, twine," not "rim, glass, twine." ;) I've made it a signature call of mine for free throws that strike the rim and then the backboard before going through the net, but I freely admit that I stole it from the University of Chicago's P.A. announcer from about a decade ago. "Sojourn" is all mine, though. :D

Dang!!??...you're right (obviously).  You may be able to make that into a rhyme if it's the second free throw or the 'and-one' attempt...."Iron. glass, twine, on that sojourn to the line"

Carthage crapped the bed, losing to a team they should have handled.  Another game of one pass, launch a three...or missing wide open layups...or not taking care of the basketball.  It's become an all to familiar story for the Red Men.  Not sure I agree with the intentional foul call against Baltimore with about 3 minutes remaining, but whatever.  This is back-to-back-to-back poor showings by Carthage.  I'm not sure this team is getting better as the season goes on.  Hopefully I'm wrong, but it looks like the win over then #2 Oshkosh is going to be the highlight win of the season.

Not only did Kienan Baltimore not play, but it also didnít look like he was even on the Carthage bench.
At this point it appears the question of whether or not he is still a member of the Carthage team is a valid one. 🤷🏼‍♂️
Without Baltimore the road to the finish line will be a very rough one for Boskoís boys.

According to the voice of the Red Men on the pre-game last night, Kienan was unavailable for this game and is serving a program imposed (may have said school imposed) suspension.  There is a meeting today to discuss his future with the team.

In case anyone was wondering

Massey's ratings:
Carthage #63
Olivet #214

Absolutely BRUTAL loss by the Red Men.  Cannot be stressed enough.

Carthage moved to 8-1 with a 73-65 win over Albright (5-4) in Puerto Rico yesterday.

Stolen from the Carthage website:

Carthage shot 25-of-47 (53%) from the floor marking the sixth game this season the Red Men shot over 50%.
Four Red Men tallied double-figures in points: Jordon Kedrowski (18), Crishawn Cook (17), Kienan Baltimore (13) and Fillip Bulatovic (13).
Sean Johnson narrowly missed a double-double on the day concluding with 12 rebounds and eight points.

The Red Men have the day off before taking on Birmingham Southern tomorrow.

Great! A Titans JV report!

Looks like somebody has been sipping from iwu70's cup of oolong tea. ;)

I'm not sure what is wrong with providing comments on CCIW men's basketball JV play here on the CCIW men's basketball board.

It's almost as bad as IWU baseball, or IWU women's basketball...

Red Men vs. North Central

Three different games in this one.

Game 1---first ten minutes.  Carthage exploded out of the gate to take a 30-10 lead after the first 10 minutes of the game.  Carthage shot something like 85% or so for the first 10 minutes and North Central couldn't buy a bucket. 

Game 2---The next 8 minutes were all North Central.  They went on a 29-7 run to take the lead at 39-37 at the 2:44 mark.  Last year, Carthage would have folded it's tent and packed things in.  This year they responded by running off the last 7 points of the half to take a 44-39 lead into the break.

Game 3---Second half of the contest.  The two teams battled evenly through the first 11 minutes of the first half when Carthage still had a 7 point lead.  A mini-run over the next 5 minutes put Carthage up 11, but NC wouldn't go away and they actually cut the game to 1 with 26 seconds left to play.

Yes, AndOne, I do think that there was a foul on the final play of the game against Meredith underneath on the air ball attempt that went uncalled.  I do think that the refs totally missed a number of calls down the stretch though.  The one that hurt Carthage the most was the balled dribbled out of bounds off of the NC guard that was given back to NC who then hit a 3 (not sure if that cut the lead to 4 or 1).

Meredith led NCC with points (17), Reb (6) and Assists (6)
Rairdon had 9 - 6 - 6
Pollack and Cappelletti both had 16
Helwig had 11.

NCC shot 49% from beyond the arc and hit 17 threes.  That's just about double their season average for made 3s.

Kedrowski led Carthage with 20, 4:0 ratio
Cook had 16, 5:1 ratio with 3 steals
Johnson chipped in with 14 - 9 - 6:0 ratio.

Carthage shot 53% from beyond the arc on 12-23 shooting.

In a rather chippy contest, only 13 foul shots were taken.  NCC showed they are for real by getting up from the blitz that Carthage put on them in the first ten minutes of the game.  Very impressed with them.

***  CCIW  North Central (4-2) at Carthage (5-0)
***  CCIW  Wheaton (4-2) at Illinois Wesleyan (5-1)

Agreed mw.... 2 big ones in the CCIW.. they werenít on my list because I set both teams at a .750 winning % or better or both teams rated 3 or better in preseason conf poll to be included...

With those criteria, you're not going to include a lot of CCIW games then.  We punish each other until the end of February.  No one is coming out of the CCIW unscathed and the top 7 are currently a combined 33-8.

With NCC, Augustana, IWU, Carthage, Elmhurst, Wheaton, and Carroll, Iím pretty sure the CCIW is the strongest league this year.


31-14 so far this season.     0.6888 Winning Percentage.

I didn't mention NPU's win this weekend because, even though it counts on the W-L ledger, in my eyes it really doesn't count at all. In fact, I was hoping that nobody on CCIW Chat would even notice, but you've spoiled that, Mark. ;) Even though it's sometimes necessary if there's a late cancellation and an NPU team needs to find an opponent at the last minute -- that's happened in several different sports over the years for North Park -- it's still embarrassing to have to play Moody Bible Institute. If you don't win big, you get laughed at for not winning big against a Bible school. And if you beat the Archers by a huge score, nobody cares because, well, you're beating the tar out of a Bible school.

I liken playing Moody Bible Institute to Cosmo Kramer bragging about how he was dominating his karate dojo, until it's revealed that he's in a karate class with a bunch of ten-year-olds:



I'm pretty sure that if Carthage's record book included dunks in a single game, the 1990 game against MBI would be in the top three.  Mario Miller and LeVon Brown had numerous highlight level dunks against that undermanned squad back in the day.  Such fond memories of the Kevin McCarthy era....

Carthage topped Finlandia last night 122-64.  It was never a game.

Baltimore had 23 points in 25 minutes.  He also had a 7:3 ratio with 5 boards and a steal.
Kedrowski had 18 points in 15 minutes to go along with 6 boards, 5 assists and zero turnovers.
Sean Johnson had 13 and 10 along with 6 blocks in 22 minutes.
Brad Perry had 14 points, 9 boards, and a block in 18 minutes.

Finlandia's coach took over in October apparently...it's going to be another rough year for the Lions.


Rose-Hulman and Aurora played a much different game in the opener of the Honda of Kenosha Classic yesterday with RH coming out on top 84-83.  RH was up 82-78 with 1:23 left to play.  Vance made two free throws for Aurora to cut the lead to 2.  Missed jumper for RH, missed FT for Aurora, turnover by RH leads to a Rashad Johnson 3 to put Aurora in front with 18 seconds to play.  Zach Callahan (no relation to Tommy Callahan or the Callahan Auto empire), drew a foul and made both free throws with 5 seconds left to seal the game for Rose-Hulman.

Carthage will have their hands full today with the Rose-Hulman guards, especially Craig McGee who was 1 boards away from a triple double against Aurora.

Carthage  64
UWO 57


Kedrowski  20  8-14  4 Reb
Bulatovic  10  4-7
Baltimore 9  4-8  Fouled out with about 4 minutes to play.
Washburn 7  3-4
Johnson 6 3-7 with 9 boards
Perry had 6 as well.

Carthage was 26-59, UWO was 19-67 (4-28 beyond the arc)  Oshkosh won the boards battle 53-38


Flynn played 18 minutes (foul trouble all over) and scored 17 points


Not to take anything away from this win, but Laketa needs to improve his shot selection and decision making.  He came off the bench and immediately launched a 26 foot three that barely drew iron.  Did the same thing again later in the first half.  Finished 0-4 from 3, with 2 more turnovers and 4 fouls.
