Mrs. Y and I WILL be in Salem for the first time - can't wait! In 2011, decided not to go because both IWU men and women were in FF, so stayed home to watch them both. In previous FF appearances, was still a working stiff.
on a totally unrelated topic (don't know if its been mentioned here)
The CCIW has a connection to the D1 tournament
former Elmhurst baseball coach and assistant basketball coach Ron Wellman is the chair of the D1 basketball committee.
Wheaton could bring in multiple high-value big men for next season, if everything breaks Mike Schauer's way in the recruiting wars.
Congratulations to the Titans, Whitewater, Amherst, and Williams for reaching the Final Four! I will be rooting for the Titans first and foremost, but it should be a memorable weekend of hoops watching in Salem.
Was hoping that Wash-U would get there...but there is always next season, eh?
We will do our best to make it a competitive game.
Congrats to both the Whitewater men and women for each making the Final Four.
The men have been playing great for four games, but have a mountain to climb against IWU. Check out the always active CCIW page for insight on Illinois Wesleyan. They are a very tall team with great shooters and a deep bench, from what I've read. But, Whitewater is pretty good too!
Good luck, make the WIAC proud.
I would recommend a box and 1 defense against UWW. Sure you give up more 3 point attempts but it allows you cut off the baseline and trap when the guards penetrate. Run as much clock you can too so their speed doesn't wear you out. Beloit hung with them and actually led for a while then the speed took over and they ran out of gas and the game got out of hand.
Thanks, Q, for all the data. Surely looks like WW is a quality team. Should be a great game. Is it just my impression, or are they rather small for a top 10 D3 squad? Only one starter over 6'3". Must be speed and outside shooting, tough D? Seems the Titans might be slightly favored in this game.?
