Isn’t Rose graduating? This is his 4th year of school, and he is listed as a senior on the IWU roster.

He is going to play next year.  IWU just took a different approach to listing his year on the roster than NCC did with Connor Raridon.

A quote from that Pantagraph article...

The Elmhurst coach said Wesleyan junior Brady Rose (20.7 points) is “playing at an All-American level. I think Brady is the best player in the league right now. He’s playing like it.”

Bosko made the following comment after the IWU/CC game: "Brady Rose is one of the best players in the country.  He's a lights out shooter and his first step quickness is hard to stop."

I've been really impressed with Brady Rose this season.  He has turned into a really special player...and is a great leader on the floor.  I'm excited to watch him develop the rest of this season and next.

The toughest thing about voting in the Top 25 is comparing a team w/ a weak schedule (and a great record) to a team w/ a strong schedule (and more losses).

Use Illinois Wesleyan as an example.  IWU is 10-3 vs this schedule - http://www.d3hoops.com/teams/Illinois_Wesleyan/men/2017-18/index.

What would Whitman's record be vs that schedule?  Middlebury's? UWW's? Lycoming's? Swarthmore's? Juniata's?

Through 4 CCIW games (against 4 good teams), IWU is leading the league in:

* Scoring defense: 68.0
* FG % defense: .423
* 3-point FG % defense: .278

Hopefully that continues tonight - Elmhurst is averaging 83.0 per game and has some very talented offensive players.

IWU 72
#2-Augustana 53

http://www.iwusports.com/boxscore.aspx?id=5210&path=mbball

* Brady Rose: 26 pts, 5 reb, 2 assists
* Colin Bonnett: 14 pts, 3 reb
* Danny Baker: 8 pts, 7 reb
* Tyler Burdine: 4 pts, 6 reb, 2 assists

* Micah Martin: 19 pts, 5 reb
* Chrishawn Orange: 14 pts, 3 reb
* Brett Benning: 11 pts, 6 reb

Rebounds: IWU 44; Augustana 36
FG: IWU 45%; Augustana 37%

Really impressive performance by the Titans on both ends of the floor.  IWU did a great job attacking the basket in the 1st half - Rose and Bonnett were outstanding.  The Titans out-rebounded Augie 26-16 in the 1st.

In the 2nd Augie made a little run, but the Titans went on a big 7-0 run (Gregoire 2, Knobloch 5) to build the margin back up to a comfortable amount.

Micah Martin is a beast...and is just a sophomore.

Certainly a must-win game for IWU at home.  Nice job by the Titans in holding serve.

It's interesting that Augustana clocks in with only one "Top Four" player (Orange), yet still has the best record so far.

Well, it's not a ranking of players.  It is just a list of players, sorted by points scored per game. 

If we were to somehow rank players based on overall value (offense, defense, leadership, other intangibles, etc), I'm sure Augustana would have several "Top Four" players.

Might just be something with the gameplans, but Coleman getting less and less minutes each of the last three contests, seemingly falling out of the rotation in favor of Gregoire who provides more length (6-4 compared to a very generous 6-2 for Coleman) and similar shooting. Knobloch also pretty much out of the rotation against Birmingham with just three minutes and another 0-fer afternoon.

Great bounce-back game for Wolfe who had struggled in his last few as well, netting a career-high 10 pts.

Knobloch suddenly started the last couple of games before today in place of Coleman, and appears to have done a more abrupt flameout than his predecessor. Yesterday he started and, in 18 minutes of PT, went O fer 5 (all threes) with O assists and 3 TOs. Today, he didn’t start and only played 3 minutes, missing both of the 2 shots he took. He has a history of being a good long distance shooter but lately, not so much. He also appears to be slow afoot, thus likely a liability on the defensive end.
Perhaps the problem is that he is a one dimensional, three point shooter, and when his shots from downtown aren’t falling Ron Rose has several more versatile options available?

Zach Knobloch was one of many Titans who had the flu today.  I don't think he played at all today - I believe that is a mistake in the boxscore.  In the WJBC pregame they said he was out with the flu, then Ron Rose talked about it after the game as well.

I wasn't able to watch much of the IWU/Emory game yesterday - the Titans should never have to play while I am working.  From the boxscore, sounded ugly.

Hopefully IWU can bounce back today.
