Here's the link to the women's one.

I, for one, am saddened that unused first half timeouts in the women's game will no longer be donated to charity.

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

Make sure to read the final paragraph.

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.

TQ has reported on the IWU recruits, Gregory Sager on a few from NPU, and some other guy has commented on the NCC newbies. Those from Augie, Elmhurst, and Wheaton are described on their respective web sites. However, has anyone heard anything about any Carthage, Carroll, or Millikin recruits?

I only know of one from Carthage, and that's Brett Czerak from Aurora Central Catholic, who from what I've heard is a terrific scorer (finished his career as the school's all time leading scorer). Only reason I know that is because my brother also just graduated from ACC. Czerak is 6'1" and is listed as a small forward, but given the state of the game I imagine he'd probably profile more as a 2 than a 3 given that size, but I'm not sure. Dude can shoot, regardless.

Weilbacher scores on an E-5 and the Cardinals walk off 5-4 to stay alive!

On the other hand, Greg, the pitching staff's of the other 8 schools have an ERA of 0.00 for the last couple of weeks! ;)

Isn't it technically infinity because they have a combined 0 innings pitched?  :P

I don't know how long it's been up, but the posting is officially up for NCC's opening for an Assistant Coach and Recruiting Coordinator.

Bracket's out, and North Central will open College World Series play on Friday at 4:30 against UMass-Boston as part of Bracket 2. They'll play either Cal Lutheran or Wheaton (MA) in their second game.

...Even though they're in a completely different conference and state and have no affiliation whatsoever with a certain college a few miles north of my alma mater other than sharing a name, am I a bad person for wanting Wheaton (MA) to crash and burn just because it's Wheaton? :P

Heard some rumblings that North Central is actually looking for a new assistant coach for the women's basketball program.  Sounds like Michelle Roof is hoping to have someone in place by July but doesn't have a particular candidate in mind.

Last check on North Central's website doesn't have any openings yet, but I imagine there will be something soon.

I was fortunate enough to get to my car yesterday afternoon just in time to hear the WONC call of Sotiros' walk off hit. William Dawes, who was doing play by play, was kind enough to share:

The kid from Montenegro is a really intriguing recruit.  Sounds like a really good get for a DIII school.

Intriguing indeed!

In terms of population, Montenegro is seriously not much bigger than the greater Quad Cities area, so it is hard to know what participation on the national team means, but they love basketball in the former Yugoslav states.  In case anyone is curious, that name is pronounced KLA-yich.

*makes note for future PA reference*

Just saw that the Minnesota at White Sox game was rained out.  What are the prospects for the CCIW tourney games?

I'm no meteorologist, but a quick look at the Weather Channel app shows no rain in the forecast for the next 48 hours (though a chance for some on Saturday). When I drove by Zimmermann Stadium yesterday I think the tarp was out, so I would assume the field is in good shape for today, but I'm not in a position to know for sure.

Sad news out of Naperville, as I found out former Cardinal point guard and 2012 North Central grad Helen Muleya passed away yesterday. I don't know details other than it was very sudden. Haven't heard anything about arrangements yet either.

NCC RECRUIT

North Central received tonight a commitment from 6'2" 180 lb SG/PG Blaise Meredith of Naperville Neuqua Valley HS.

Blaise, one of NCC's top targets since the recently completed season began, was a unanimous 1st team All DuPage Valley Conference pick as well as a Daily Herald DuPage County All-Area selection. He averaged 15.2 PPG on 41% shooting from the field, and 73% from the line. He hit 73 threes during the season and dished out 2.5 APG.
On the defensive end of the floor he was known as one of the toughest defenders in the Chicagoland suburban area. He took 29 charges this season.

Somebody is listening to me when I say that charges should be kept as an official stat!

Glad NCC was able to get some reinforcements at the guard spots.

North Park also has a new logo :

Is that a Nordic sword?
Will the basketball floor be repainted?
Any other questions?

That's pretty cool. I kind of liked the Viking boat from before, but this is neat. I like the four start thing on the top of the shield; gotta get those Chicago ties in!
