YIKES!!  I seem to have killed CCIW Chat - six days and nothing but crickets. :(

  3. NCC     57.5
  4. Wheaton 55
  5. IWU      45
  6. Elmhurst 39
  7. Millikin   23
  8. NPU     20.5

WOMEN:
  1. IWU     67.5
  2. Wheaton 57
  3. Carthage 54.5
  4. NCC      52
  5. Augie    45.5
  6. Millikin   25
  7. Elmhurst 23.5
  8. NPU      20

COMBINED:
  1. Carthage  114.5
  2. IWU          112.5
  3. Wheaton   112
  4. NCC          109.5
  5. Augie        107.5
  6. Elmhurst    62.5
  7. Millikin        48
  8. NPU            40.5

Interesting how tight the top five were in the overall athletic department totals, then a drastic drop.

My methodology was what I believe is pretty standard in these sorts of rankings: in sports with all eight schools, 1st place got 8, second 7, etc.  In sports with fewer than all schools, first got the number of participating schools.  In sports with affiliate members, they were simply ignored with the points allocated as though only the full CCIW member schools participated.  Tied positions received the average of the tied places (e.g., Wheaton and IWU tied for first in women's basketball, so each got 7.5 points).

Article on IWU's 7-member recruiting class...

I actually heard from Todd.  His tweet had nothing to do with basketball. 

My apologies...I shouldn't have even speculated about that.

Todd Creal ‏@ToddCreal 
We are very excited to be adding @Spenc8_qb a 6'4 forward from Lincoln Land CC & played High School ball at Paris, IL. A versatile athlete!

Todd Creal ‏@ToddCreal 
We also welcome 6'5 forward Jordan Clark from Pana High School. Jordan took a year off after he graduated and possesses a big strong body.



Todd Creal ‏@ToddCreal 
We also would like to welcome 6'4 left handed forward Brendan Ritchason from Benton, IL to the #MacFam. He is versatile and skilled.

Tyler Burdine ‏@Tyler2625  3h3 hours ago
Proud to be continuing my academic and basketball career at Illinois Wesleyan!📚🏀 #IWU #GoTitans


* Tyler Burdine, 6-9 C (Lincoln Land CC/Williamsville H.S.)

http://lincolnlandloggers.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=798&path=mbball


Tyler Burdine isn't much of a scorer, but he is a legit 6-9 and moves well.  He should provide some nice post depth for the Titans the next two seasons.

NOT to disparage Tyler's decision, but Very disappointing to this SLIAC fan... he would have been MUCH more than just post depth at MacMurray...  We'll have to keep fighting the never ending battle....

Didn't realize MacMurray was on him.  Maybe this tweet, from the same day Burdine announced he's going to IWU, is related.

The rich get richer, and the poor well we pull ourselves up, persevere, and keep succeeding.

It is quite rare for IWU hoops to accept at CC transfer, right?

Extremely rare.  I can't think of a JUCO transfer for IWU since my guy Mike Thomas (aka Titan Hammer) way back in 1989-90 from Lincoln College.  Maybe I'm forgetting some guys, not sure.
