I'd say IWU and Augustana are extremely close this season.

G - Brady Rose vs Chrishawn Orange  - advantage Rose
G - Colin Bonnett vs Dylan Sortillo - push
F - Andy Stempel vs Pierson Wofford - push
F - Jaylen Beasley vs Jacob Johnston - advantage Johnston
F - Trevor Seibring vs A.J. Dollmeyer - advantage Seibring

F - Alec Bausch vs Brett Benning - push
G - Nick Coleman vs Nolan Ebel - push
F - Tyler Burdine vs Donavan Ferguson - push
Others - push

At this point I don't see much separation at all between the teams picked 2nd (IWU) and 3rd (Augie) in the CCIW race.

I need to see North Park more to know if the Vikings are better than these two or not.

I also believe Brett Benning may fly under the radar early on, but could be a major factor as the season unfolds for Augie.  He's a long 6'6 lefty 2 guard/wing, who you may remember two years ago was one of the top scorers in the state of Illinois from small Dakota high school near Rockford. He went on to play his freshman season at div 2 Southern Indiana befor wanting to come back closer to home.

He is definitely a big part of that talent I'm referring to.  Division 2 scholarship kid (1st Team all-stater in H.S.) who comes off the bench - 6-6 wing that can really shoot it.  Add that to Wofford, Orange, Johnston, Sortillo, Ferguson, etc and you have an incredibly talented cast.

I would certainly like to see Q's vision of a his year's Augie team come to fruition, but the simple truth is freshmen and sophomore dominated teams do not succeed in the CCIW.

Not often, but it happens:

* 2003-04 IWU (12-2, 1st) - Dauksas (So.), Amelianovich (So.), Freeman (Fr.), etc

* 1999-00 Carthage (11-3, 1st) - Wiertel (So.), McDaniel (Fr.), Garnes (Fr.), etc


And this Augustana team has nice senior presence with Jacob Johnston emerging as a leader.

Webster was in the game against Drury, Washington University and now IWU. Down by two points with 10 left to play...

And definitely not a fluke.  Webster is a good team.

IWU coach Ron Rose talked about the Gorloks on WJBC's pregame yesterday (about 21:20 on the video player - https://portal.stretchinternet.com/iwu/portal.htm?eventId=318782&streamType=video).  After watching Webster, I'd echo everything he said there about how challenging their matchup zone is, their athleticism and quickness, how tough a matchup Hunter Ward is, etc.

I don't know what the rest of the SLIAC looks like this year, but I have to believe Webster will be right in the middle of the championship picture.  They've now lost to NCAA D2 Drury by 7, #20 Wash U. by 1, and Illinois Wesleyan by 13 in a game that was just a 2-point margin with 9:58 to play.  The Gorloks definitely create challenges for opponents on both ends of the floor.

(Postgame interviews with Andy Stempel and Ron Rose start at about 2:00:00 - many comments about Webster there as well.)

Hi Bob,

Well, if they can keep this group together, it will give me more reason to head across town to watch games.  Just because I don't post  doesn't mean I'm not on regularly to catch up on the great commentary you, Greg and AndOne provide!

By the way, I am confident that 2001-02 Kenosha Mark was more talented on the boards than 2016-17 Kenosha Mark.

http://athletics.carthage.edu/boxscore.aspx?id=4854&path=mbball

I attended the game tonight and have a few thoughts.   Olivet is a pretty bad team so the lopsided score should be put into that perspective.  Carthage's size and quickness completely overmatched Olivet and this one was over early.  Olivet tried to press three quarter court just to switch things up and see if they could create some turnovers.  Kevin Kozil, the point guard, did a solid job all night registering eleven assists and no turnovers, despite the constant pressure. 

Nice balanced scoring with Drew Joiner coming off the bench to lead the team.  There are definitely some nice young pieces between the freshmen and the sophomore transfer, Jordan Thomas.   Perry used his size advantage to score around the hoop and Banks and Baltimore showed some inside presence as well.   Thomas and Joiner lit it up with their three point shooting. 

Like I said, this all has to be tempered until they play someone that will match up and guard them like they will see during the conference season.  Nonetheless, after a couple of really poor/small recruiting classes, Carthage has brought in some talent that can blend with some nice upper class experience (Kruse, Stevenson and Kozil).

A K-Mark sighting! 

Mark, I hope Bosko and Co. can figure things out just so we can keep you around.

Last year's Augie team made the Elite Eight, and the 2015 version played in the national championship game, and this year's team is more talented?  ???
They may be more athletic, but I think the jury will remain out for awhile on the question of bring more talented.

Yes, I believe Augustana's 2016-17 team is more talented than the Elite 8 team last year.  That doesn't mean they'll do as well (I don't think Augie will win the CCIW this year), but just matching pure talent last year vs this year, I think this team is more talented.

Regarding Augustana, I watched a lot of their game vs Alma tonight.  In my opinion the Vikings are absolutely not overrated.  I will go as far as to say this - Augie is more talented this year than last year.  Now, that talent is young and/or experienced, so it is not all meshed together yet, and not always pretty.  But I believe this might be the most talented Grey Giovanine Augie team I have seen.

Loras 104
Elmhurst 102


Loras made a 3 to go up 1 with about 3 seconds left. 

Elmhurst freshman PG Jake Rhode had 29 points and 4 assists.  Caleb Mowry with 22 points, 11 rebounds.

Chris Martin gets his first win as a head coach.  Great game.

Buzzer beater final from the south side:

North Park 88
Chicago 87

Chicago had the ball, up 2, with 5 seconds left.  They had to call timeout twice because they couldn't get it in.  On the third try they threw it long, NPU stole the ball and rushed it the other way, and Colin Lake made a left wing, high-arching 3 at the buzzer.
