I haven't heard anything further on the North Central front other than the two I mentioned above. I'm sure there are more, but between NCAA rules that you can't announce recruits until deposits are in and the fact that Michelle Roof has me keep recruit news in confidence until they officiallly announce them, there may be more I'm not aware of or at liberty to say. (Though to be honest I don't know if any more yet.)

Bekah Foley's parents are North Park alumni. Her mom comes from a Covenant background (I've known her since she was a little kid), and Bekah has lots of other NPU alumni kin going back generations on her mom's side of the family; and James Foley, her dad, was a backup forward for the Vikings men's basketball team in the late '80s. So I'm not terribly thrilled that she's going to be wearing red and black in college instead of royal blue and gold. But it's not the first time that a potential NPU legacy has chosen another CCIW school at which to play sports -- heck, Carthage currently has both a men's basketball player and a women's soccer player whose respective fathers played basketball for the Vikings -- and it probably won't be the last time that this happens, either. Given that her older brother Kyle plays basketball for Knox, I knew that there was a pretty good chance that Bekah wouldn't end up at the Park.

At least she didn't choose Wheaton. ;)

While he's not an athlete, I've told my younger brother that if he were to go to Wheaton I'd disown him. Instead he's off to U of I in the fall and Wheaton was never on his radar. Smart kid.  :P

Chalk up another one for North Central, as Warren Township High School's Bekah Foley officially signed her Celebratory Signing Form to come play for North Central. She's 5'11" and had some success blocking shots, but was very versatile for her high school team and can play the point in a pinch. And of course... she likes to shoot threes.

First NCC recruit news dropped this morning, as Kaneland's Kylie Modaff has committed to North Central. She's coming off an ACL/meniscus injury and didn't play this past year, but she can shoot, and she ended up serving as an assistant coach of sorts for Kaneland this past season. At somewhere between 5'10" and 6'0" (sources are conflicting), if healthy I'd guess she pegs in as a 5, though Coach Roof moved people around a little bit this past season, so she could end up in another spot.

I was looking through the history of The BeltTM today, just out of curiosity. Since The Dream ScenarioTM hasn't happened yet, The BeltTM always enters the NCAA Tournament, but I wanted to see how the team who brought it in has fared. Assuming I looked everything up correctly (brackets were tricky):

One and done: '17 Bethel, 12 Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, '09 Transylvania, '08 Chicago
Round of 32: '07 Hampden-Sydney
Sweet 16: '14 Albertus Magnus, '11 UWSP, '10 Wooster
Elite 8: '16 Alma
Final 4: '13 St. Thomas
Title Game: '15 Augustana
Champion: None

Naperville Central's Nick Kramer announced just a few minutes ago that he will be taking his talents all of a mile to North Central. He's 6'6", so I would figure he'll get minutes at the 3.

As to whether he's a "significant" recruit, well, I'll let AndOne, who probably has more knowledge on the kid than I do, answer those questions.  ;)

(Sorry, I had to.  :P )

The NABC released it's All District Teams today.

Jordan Robinson made the Central's First Team, with Aston Francis, Chrishawn Orange, and Alex Sorenson getting Second Team nods.

I think I'd have to agree on Augie. Losing Kallenberger is the biggest blow just because of what all it allows them to do defensively (and offensively too, since a 6'5" post player will require attention at all times) and they lost a bunch of good guards obviously. It all depends on recruiting too, and who knows what Mark Beinborn has up his sleeve. I don't think they're a CCIW Tournament team as constructed next year, but 8-8 or 9-7 should be doable.

Now, if they get some sort of super prospect this spring...

Note to other Sweet 16 teams: Do not let Chrishawn Orange touch the basketball with under 10 seconds to go in a tie game.

That is all.

Was it "flagrant" or "intentional"?

There was no audio for the stream and I always confuse the terms so I can't tell you, but didn't they do away with the verbiage "intentional" and made all fouls "flagrant 1" or "flagrant 2"? But from watching, the Bethel player was not close to the hoop (just inside half court) and had a clear path (if it was NBA that would have been the call) when the UWRF player fouled him. BU got two FT with no one on the lane and was awarded the ball back and took it out side line out of bounds and proceeded to not score.

I'm assuming from watching the stream (again, no audio, which is a separate issue) that it was a Flagrant 1 based on that theory of a "clear path" or whatever even though that doesn't appear in the rule book, but it would probably fit under the definition of "excessive."

UW-River Falls steals The BeltTM from Bethel in double overtime.

Interested to see how a predatory bird would wear such a glorious cincture.

Glad I caught the end of that one. Fantastic finish.

Underrated part was Bethel missing both of the flagrant free throws in the first overtime that could've pushed their lead to 6. Great job by the Falcons to take advantage.

Tip of the hat to the Titans for a good season. Too bad they couldn't make a run.

Congratulations to Wheaton though for finally breaking out of Round 1 with a win over RHIT tonight. Hope they can continue to represent the CCIW well the rest of the way.
