Hope fans were pretty upset after this....http://www.uwwsports.com/news/2013/3/9/WBB_0309134325.aspx?path=wbball

Badger--

Tisk, tisk. Reporting women's history in the MEN'S room.  :o
IWU70 can advise you regarding the wrath incurred for that particular transgression.  ::)

Now, if you want to talk MEN'S history. I think you and your fellow Warhawk fans were pretty upset after this:   :)   ;)

* "No Jordan Nelson at all tonight." Is it known why Nelson was MIA tonight? Illness (lots going around lately)? Injury? Another episode of Ron Rose just holding him out of action to "get his head in a better place," as TitanQ recently reported already occurred once previously this season?
Nelson has been an important weapon for IWU.

Nelson had an MRI on one of his knees a few days before the Wash U game - they thought it was cartilage damage, and it turned out to be something different (but I can't remember what it is).  Basically it's a day-to-day thing where he can practice/play if it feels decent...or he sits if it doesn't.  I didn't ask anyone why he didn't play last night, but I assume it's this.  I know a few days before the Wash U game they didn't think they'd have him for that one.

Nelson missed the entire preseason with that foot/ankle injury, then the 2 Memphis games due to illness, and now he has this knee thing.  It's been a rough year so far.

The number one consideration would be to avoid surgery which, if it was necessary the MRI would have shown. That he was able to play in the WU game should be a positive sign as surgery at this point would likely be season ending. Maybe its just something like tendonitis, and he just needs to rest it.

Good win for the Titans at home over Loras.  Some bench/rotational players really coming into their own, as Titans had 40 bench points.  Stempel, Pennington, and Bausch all playing very well.  No Jordan Nelson at all tonight.  Clearly, in terms of minutes, production and stats, Dolan, Sodemann, Stempel and Pennington, all playing better than Nelson on the perimeter at this point.  Just say'in.  Trevor Seibring continues to impress and Bausch perhaps the most pleasant overall surprise in the broader scheme of things for the Titan rotation through the first third of the season, after Seibring.  Ryan Coyle putting together a very solid season so far at the 4.  Let's get Marietti and Heyen back for the conference run.  Let's hope Nelson gets back on track with his shooting, finds his stroke.  So far, he seems in a bit of a funk.

* Stempel and Seibring were at least mentioned a couple of times last season, but Pennington and Bausch seem to have come out of nowhere to play very well for the Greenies this season.

* Heyen back for the conference run?  ???

IWU fans,

I'm sure I'll get little or no argument when I say I think Dylan Overstreet is a very good:
1. Penetrator
2. Passer/assist man
3. Finisher on the drive
4. Mid-range shooter

Given that, does anyone think he is shooting too many threes?
Against Wash U, he was 1 for 6 from behind the line. For the year he is 6 for 35 which is a measely 24%.Does anybody feel he should concentrate offensively on the above 4 points, and leave the 3 point shooting to someone else? He is scoring well, but it seems he is taking a lot of shots to get his points.

Bryce Dolan was no help with an uncharacteristic 1 for 7 from distance vs. WU, but is at 43% overall. Any disagreement it was likely just an off day?

Jordan Nelson was 1 for 4 on threes, and 1 for 6 overall. For the season, the DI transfer is at only 28% on threes, and an embarrassing 23% overall against DIII competition. Obviously, when he is in the game, he is going to shoot. But, given these numbers should Pennington, or perhaps Stempel, be getting the minutes Nelson is currently eating?

Of course, even with these problems, IWU is still one of the top teams. Many others would love to have such "problems."


That's actually only 17%.

Mr. Overstreet has only taken 25 three point shots. The 35 was a typo. 24 is the correct percentage.

New Top 25 poll out.

As I think most expected, Wash U moves into the top spot.
Augie up from 4 to 2 after its big win over UWW.
IWU goes from 5 to 9 after losing to the new #1.
North Central goes from 16 to 21 after losing for the 1st time to the new #5, Dickinson.
Wheaton is the final OTR team with 2 votes.

Looking forward to watching the IWU-WUISL game.
I want to see how good Wash U is.
I know how good the Green Team is.

Naturally, the thing that obviously stood out was the overall play of WU's Fatoki. Not only did he have 28 points, but also 9 assists, and 7 rebounds. Looking a bit deeper, I saw a very good all around team with lots of weapons as evidenced by WU having 5 guys in double figures. Another thing I was impressed with was WU's movement---both players moving without the ball to become better targets for passes, and ball movement/reversal by means of passing to get the ball to the open man. This is something I've always thought IWU does well so against them it was easy to spot.
WU also played tight defense, and rebounded well, limiting the Green's 2nd chance opportunities.

Dickinson 80
North Central 73

Well, it looks like I jinxed the Cardinals. I've gotta remember to use that trick on January 24 and February 21. ;)

It was hard to tell, due to the herky-jerky buffering from the live stream in the second half, but it looked as though NCC's shooting woes continued into the second half. And Dickinson seemed to be more active at both ends of the floor, from what I was able to see.

Looked to me like NCC lost to a little better team.  The way the game was called (tightly) certainly didn't favor the Cardinals, but Dickinson is a well coached, talented team with a lot of weapons.  I think this result, on a neutral court, is a pretty good indication of how these two teams stack up against each other.

NCC is a good team - Rosenberg is a beast, Burchett is a good CCIW center, and Moten is one of the best guards in the league.  The Cardinals can play with anyone in the league.

(No buffering for me on the video stream.)

The primary reason NCC suffered their 1st defeat of the season last night was that they forgot how to play the tough type of defense that the Cardinals staff teaches and demands. Against the much taller Dickinson Red Devils, the Cards collected an equal number of rebounds, committed only 9 turnovers for the entire game, and actually out scored the Devils in the paint by +2 points. All positive signs. However, their offensive efficiency was limited by not enough movement on that end of the floor. Also, the Cardinals lost their igniter for the stretch run when Jayme Moten fouled out with about 5 minutes remaining.
From a defensive perspective-ugh.
* No hands up on D. Thus allowing lots of open shots with little opposition, and helping the Red Devils shoot 54.3% from the field.
* People too often able to drive around their man. And, poor defensive help/switching off, and helping the helper after they did so.
* The Cardinals committed 28 fouls compared to Dickinson's 16. This sent the Devils to the line 11 more times than the Cards, and they converted 7 more FTs.
* However, the most glaring defensive transgression appeared on the perimeter where the Cardinals allowed the opposition to shoot 8 of 18. This is a percentage of 44.4% which is about 15% higher than where the Cardinls want to be. 

NCC was led in both points and rebounds by Charlie Rosenberg with 19 and 7. Jack Burchett added 16 points, and Jayme Moten had 10 before fouling out. The Cards got good help off the bench from Erwin Henry with 11, and Evan Fendley with 7. The next goal up for the Cardinals will be to enter the conference portion of the schedule with only 1 loss.

Similar to last year's IWU combo of Ziemnik & Davis, it would indeed be difficult to find a tougher, more physical duo than Rosenberg & Burchett who always play a take no prisoners brand of ball. In addition to their physicality inside, Jayme Moten, last week's CCIW Player Of The Week, has lately been bombing at a 70% clip from outside, last week hitting 17 of 24, including 12 of 17 from downtown. Hopefully this inside-outside combo can help take down the taller giants Red Devils.

And David put his hand in the bag and took out a stone and slung it. It hit the Philistine on the head, and he fell to the ground.

Very big neutral court game today at 4:00pm (Central) - #16 North Central vs #10 Dickinson (at Juniata, Huntingdon, PA).

Dickinson finished 24-6 last year (15-3 in the Centennial Conference).  In the NCAA tournament, they beat Geneseo State (at Wooster), won at Wooster, and beat Wheaton (at IWU) before falling to IWU.

Here are the boxscores from the games vs Wheaton and IWU:

http://athletics.wheaton.edu/custompages/mbball/mbbarchivedstats/2014/mwhe30.htm

http://www.iwusports.com/boxscore.aspx?id=2786&path=mbball

Dickinson's 3 returning starters from the 2013-14 team are their leading scorers so far this year:

F - Gerry Wixted, 6-8 Sr. (16.1 ppg, 8.6 ppg, 3.1 apg)
F - Steve Collins, 6-10 Sr. (12.6 ppg, 4.7 rpg)
G - Brandon Angradi, 6-4 Jr. (12.1 ppg)

Wixted was named a preseason 1st Team All-American by D3hoops.com this year.

Video - http://portal.stretchinternet.com/juniata/

The North Central Cardinals literally face a tall order this afternoon in Pennsylvania.
Their starting lineup has been comprised of players 5-9, 6-0, 6-4, 6-6, and 6-6. Dickinson will likely start with 6-2, 6-4, 6-7. 6-8, and 6-10.
NCC had to travel half way across the country yesterday to reach Juniata College in the metropolis of Huntingdon, PA., which has a population of about 7,100, and is basically in the middle of nowhere. Dickinson is about a 90 minute drive SE.
Jack Burchett and Charlie Rosenberg need to stay out of foul trouble, and on the floor.

Tip-Off is at 4:00 Central Time. Yesterday it indicated no video with Live Stats only. Today shows video, but with no audio available.

We here in CCIWland can certainly excuse balderdashery on occasion. I have balderdashed a time or two myself. However, the statute of limitations for forgiveness in these regions usually is limited to one year from date of occurrence. Accordingly, your fine is still payable within 30 days.  ;)

D.O.C.----

As Pat & Greg have indicated, this subject was previously discussed here a couple years ago in a fairly detailed manner. Unfortunately, I guess that makes your information old  news. It was reported at the time that Grey Giovanine lost $533,000 in the scam.
And yes, Giovanine, the most thought provoking and posted about coach in the CCIW by a wide margin, certainly IS still the head man at Augustana.  ::)

They're a 5-2 team with the 2 losses by 20 and 19 points, both coming at home. Last week, UWSP, with a 5-2 record, which has now gone to 6-2, was ranked 21st. Accordingly, it wouldn't seem surprising to see them drop not just below 15, but below 20.

Wonder why Miller didn't take Young off of Hill until the final few minutes of overtime.  Not taking anything away from Hill, he was special last night and made huge plays , but UWW didn't make it tough for him to catch the ball and there was no trapping on ball screens.  Hill hit a long 3 to tie the game I believe at 92, and Patten, guarding the screener, was attached to his man.  Can't figure that out.

Havej---

I believe the answer to your question is speed. Young is the quickest Warhawk, and Miller thought he would have the best chance to stay with Hill when he ran around the screens and/or use his combination of quickness and strength to fight through the screens and stay with Hill.
Miller likely felt the other defensive possibility of putting a bigger/taller defender on him to present more of an obstacle to shoot over, had a less likely probability of success as Hill would be quicker than a bigger defender, and could both get to his desired spot more easily and/or create his shot off the dribble more easily against a taller/bigger but slower defender.
But with Hill being "in the zone" last night, it didn't appear any form of defensive strategy would have been effective.
