It's simple. It's hard to get someone to commit to a school that chargers almost 40,000 a year without any scholarships. Nice campus amazing facilities but ridiculous price. Not a great sports atmosphere either. They were just better options for myself and my family.

Excuse me, but who are you, and what in the world are you referring to/talking about?

Also, once was enough!  ::)

We seem to be right at the time when kids are making final decisions.

Many of them are making final decisions now. But a significant number of them won't do so until later on in the spring, or even into the summer.

Is this code for we won't be hearing anything about any North Park recruits for a while yet;)

I do know of one recruit that any CCIW team, with the possible exception of Wheaton, would want, and at least 2 or 3 that almost every team would want, who have yet to make a final decision. I'm sure there are even more still out there. Some of the remaining possibilities are also being recruited by non-CCIW schools, and no doubt some still holding out hope for a low D1 or a D2 scholarship which may or may not be forthcoming at this (for scholarships) late date.

Carthage Red Men recruiting news....

I can usually dig up some recruiting news this time of year by searching the right stuff on Google and Twitter.  For Carthage, I'm not finding anything yet...will check again in a week or so. 

We seem to be right at the time when kids are making final decisions. A lot of that info (certainly not all) ends up being tweeted out, or in a newspaper mention. 
Following the OT win last night in Decatur: 

"This game does not get played like this in most NCAA Division III conferences," said Carthage coach Bosko Djurickovic.  "This was two teams playing for pride, and it was as competitive and as physical a game as you can imagine.  We're thrilled to win this one.  We're proud to be a part of this league, and I'm proud of how our guys finished the season.  It was weird season, and there was no way to predict what the league scores were going to be, night in and night out.  The league was really good this year, top to bottom.  We have some good players, and I know we'll be significantly better next year.  There's no guarantee of that unless we do a better job of recruiting.  We were just under-manned this year, and that's on me.  We have to have an exceptional recruiting class this year, and I have no doubt that we will."

While no team comes close to getting all the recruits they target as a priority, things so far on the recruiting circuit aren't looking "exceptional" for Carthage at least as far as the recruitment of bigs is concerned.
One of Bosko's top big man targets, a 6'6" combo forward from the near northwest suburbs, recently committed to future CCIW member Carroll, and another, a 6'7" center from the far northwest suburbs decided to forego basketball in college, and attend the U of I as a student only. Perhaps Bosko is having better luck with some shorter players.

Only because I happen to be watching the Twitter feed and not because I care at all about prospect announcements (because, I really don't):

@NCCBasketball - Happy to announce the official commitment of 6'8 St. Charles East big man, Jack Bronec! #WeAreNC #d3h

A very good get for the NCC Cardinals, the 6'8" 215 pound Bronec centered the St. Charles East team this past season, and helped lead them to a 24-4 record. Jack began his HS career as a member of the freshman 'B' team, and progressed/developed into a varsity starter and key contributor. Further skill development and added strength will yet further that development at the college level.
In addition to North Central, he considered Illinois Wesleyan, Augustana, Carthage, Hope, NAIA institutions Roosevelt and Goshen, and D1 Patriot League member Holy Cross from which he had a full tuition offer.
Jack's addition to the Cardinal squad, and his progression, is viewed as an important factor in helping to fill the void created by the loss to graduation of Charlie Rosenberg and, especially, "Big" Jack Burchett in the middle.

Bradley fired Geno Ford yesterday... I've been told Augustana's Grey Giovanine will be a leading candidate for the job.

If The Stomper leaves Augie, it won't be for Bradley. The position has been filled by Green Bay's Brian Wardle.
Odds now seem to favor GG being back in RI again next season. We'll see.

If it's any consolation, Greek, I was also amazed Point won.  ;)

However, what might be even more amazing is that in the 12 years you reference, only 6 different teams have won the championship.

Yeah. That is pretty crazy with 4 teams having won it at least twice in just that span.
Obviously UW-Stevens Point should move up to D2  :D
/sarcasm

How about they get to stay in D3, but they have to double their tuition.  ;)  :o  ;D

Sac is right about the year in question. Just because its called a "tournament" doesn't mean it really was, and neither does the fact that T-shirts may have been printed saying Tip-Off Tournament.

This may re-open that can of worms as to whether Wheaton or North Central gives out a better-quality t-shirt for their respective opening tournaments. ;)

I concede the T-shirt question to Wheaton, but Naperville/NCC has at least 2-3 pizza places that are superior to anything you'll find north of Butterfield Rd.  ;D

You are missing the point that Hope v North Central on Saturday of that weekend was predetermined.  You can call it a tournament all you want but it was a "classic" format.

The NCC opening weekend has always been called the Tip-Off Tournament.
However, some years it has been run as a "true" tournament where the losers the first night play each other the second night, and the 1st night winners due likewise. Other years it has been operated in a classic format where there are predetermined opponents on both nights.

* Seems confirmed by Pat's above post.  :)
