Congrats to both Elmhurst and North Central for being co, co, co, co, co, co, co, co, co, co, co, co, co, co, co, co NCAA Men's DIII Champions for 2020.

I'm all for hanging a banner in November if you guys are cool with it.  8-)

Fine by me.  To make it this far and not even get the chance...At least they got to play their season 90% out, unlike the baseball and softball teams.

It's official. NCAA has canceled "D1 Men's and Women's basketball tournaments and all remaining winter and spring championships."

So this affects all of these sports: 

Baseball (M)
Beach Volleyball (W)
Golf (M & W)
Lacrosse (M)
Lacrosse (W)
Rowing (W)
Softball (W)
Tennis (M & W)
Outdoor Track & Field (M & W)
Volleyball (M)
Water Polo (W)

Unprecedented for sure.

I know neither of these is a CCIW programs but the NESCAC and Grinnell (IA) just cancelled ALL spring sports. The NESCAC cancelled for the entire conference.

Is there talk of other institutions (or CCIW programs) leaning this way as well?

This is absolute horse hockey...an absolute liberal over-react.  The fact that senior seasons/college careers are being ended like this is beyond terrible.  I feel for all of these athletes as they watch their four years of off-season workouts, etc circle down the drain.

Aside from Jake Reinhardt and Jared Cantu the Vikings aren't hitting much, as they're clearly scrambling to account for the temporary absence of two key injured bats in Ranko Stevanovic and Brad Maurer, but, with the exception of their ugly outing against Webster down in Sauget on February 29, they've recovered nicely from getting their ears pinned back by Birmingham-Southern in the third week of February.

This reminded me...Carthage has been without Vince Schwartz in their first three games.  Not sure what's going on there but he hasn't had an AB yet this season.

Carthage's Big Red Machine jumped out of the gates quickly yesterday sweeping a DH from Luther in Arizona.

Keith Kutzler went 6 innings with 12 Ks. Nate Odahl returned to the mound after missing nearly all of last season with an injury and K'd two of the three he faced. One down side to the pitching was 13 BBs in the DH. That has to be cleaned up a bit but the arms appear to be solid on the front end of the rotation.

Offensively, Carthage had 8 different players collect multiple hits on the day including triples and 4 RBI from BOTH Johnny Belskis and Jake  Mitchell. Here's to hoping Carthage returns to form in 2020.

Good start, but short-lived as they fall to Wabash, 8-7 in 10 innings on Sunday.  Wabash scored on a bases loaded BALK in the top of the 10th.  Starting pitcher in the game on Sunday, Dante Guarascio, gave up 7 earned and 10 hits in 4 innings.  Redmen relievers were good until the 10th, where they hit the lead off guy, walked the next, got a ground ball out and then walked the next to load 'em up.

Apparently Jacob Delabio was touching 96 in game one, but much like Todd Greenlee (reference for Poppa)...couldn't find the strike zone however, walking 4 in a third of an inning worked on Saturday.

So, F, 6-6, D’Andre “Agassi” Edmond---simple and effective.  Well played Mauer...

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"

Jordon Kedrowski: 10 pts, 3:0 a:to
Sean Johnson: 11 rebs


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 didn’t 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 Bosko’s 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.
