I think HAL needs tune-up. He ranks NPU 4th and IWU 20th and then says IWU will beat NPU.

Yup, Ypsi, a lost opportunity in just those 2-3 minutes of poor play and poor possessions. Perhaps better next time. NPU will be a great challenge, even at The Shirk. They are playing very well, lighting it up from treyland.
Wishing you, your family, and all the CCIW chatsters a most happy holidays, upcoming. I'm to Far Side tomorrow . . . my season of morning, video-streaming basketball begins after Dec. 6th.
I'll leave Trump and his minions to you . . .I only have the Chinese Communist Party to worry about.
Hmmm ... that's a tough call!
(End of political comment for the year!)
Four Wheaton players foul out....what's up with that? And they still won !
T. Seibring got the foul on NC's big man, and the refs believed it. LOL. Too bad.
He was also the leading scorer in the first half. Just say'in.
Sure is strange to see key conference games in December.
His league (the SLIAC) doesn't have the same advantage as the CCIW in terms of every team having a video or audio feed, much less both, so he hops in his car without thinking twice about it and drives halfway across Illinois or Missouri from his home in St. Louis to watch SLIAC games (he doesn't have a rooting preference, so he bases his attendance decisions upon which game looks like the best matchup). Heck, he even drives to Kentucky to watch SLIAC games. I have no idea why his long-suffering wife puts up with that, but, considering that he always gives a full write-up of the games he sees and that his road trips make him the league's biggest men's basketball authority by a huge margin, the entire SLIAC should be glad that she does.
He could stop watching SLIAC games effective immediately and still remain the leagues biggest basketball authority by a huge margin, at least through the end of the season...
Ah, the SLIAC...]
My take is that the reason why North Centralonly scored 40 points is that it was about 80% due to UWP playing fantastic defense and 20% due to NCC screwing up. I might even go 85/15.
I watched the whole game. Agree 100% with this.
Overall game analysis -- UWP played
wellfabulously, NCC played poorly.
North Central is on a different academic calendar than everyone else, right? Is it finals week there?
It is too early to really question NCC with only four games played. What does stand out - 3.7 point differential to opponents and maybe a lack of bench depth/scoring. Cardinals might be more of a work in progress than thought before games were played.
There might be something to that, as well. Jaquan Phipps is in his second year, but was not a major scoring threat last year; I think he's more there for defense. And moving Aiden Chang into the starting lineup to replace Jayme Moten removes a lot of that bench scoring as well. That bench scoring load will probably have to be picked up by Fehrle, who hasn't looked bad through four games, but he's only got four games under his belt. And after Sorenson/Raridon, there's next to nothing offensively in the post. I think the depth is there at least in terms of minutes, but maybe not in terms of scoring. Other than last night though, Henry, Chang, and Anderson (and even Fehrle) have a good job of supplementing the scoring of Sorenson and Raridon.
Obviously no reason to panic yet. If things go south on Saturday though...
