If he'd gotten just one more game, Sortino would've topped 2000 points for his career.  1991 is still pretty darn good.
Im sure we will be seeing him in Salem, no??

Well faunch, we will just have to agree to disagree here. I think that UST is good for our conference and they usually bring out the best in most teams competing against them. In a Hoopsville earlier this year Coach Novak (Bethel Coach) actually says this as well.

I agree that UST let Augie slip out of their reach this past weekend. Shaeffer needed to have the ball in his hands more down the stretch, but Augie did a good job forcing it out of his hands. However, no one expected this UST team to make as far of a run as they did last year.

Also, if you are calling SJU "David" in your analogy I think you have to rethink that, SJU has a very solid athletics program and is second in the super special MIAC championship list.

WOW.  That stream of posts was not only thoughtful, but entertaining.  Thanks for all involved! As it relates to THIS YEAR, I've been a critic as to the legitimacy of Amherst as a tournament team based on their non conference schedule and riding on the shoulders of an OT win at home vs Babson and quite frankly their previous reputation.  Nothing against the NESCAC, but Amherst, IMHO didn't earn their way into the tournament and it played out that way.

I watched the end of that Babson vs. Amherst game and that was probably the best game of the regular season/year. With that being said they were definitely backing into the tourney and not playing their best ball in Feb/March. I know it has never been part of the criteria but I wonder how much subconscious plays into the committees mind when picking Pool C teams, like this year it seemed that last of the Pool C teams were from the power conferences (St. Thomas MIAC, Auggie CCIW, Amherst NESCAC, Oshkosh WIAC). I know some of those teams were sitting pretty good selection Monday, but these teams were all still sweating out a bid.

As it refers to THIS YEAR, the Northeast has to have 2 of the 3 teams with the best chance to win it all in Babson and Middlebury (Whitman would be my third). Midwest seemed to be down in general this year with no top tier elite teams and numerous good teams that never separated themselves, with maybe the exception of River Falls.

I enjoy banter and all, but it is better when we are talking results of games, this weekend can't come soon enough!

HSU is in the sweet 16, but there sure don't seem to be many HSU fans on this board.  It looks like the real challenge comes next, against the #1 ranked D3 team in the country, Whitworth.  What does HSU have to do to beat these guys?

Whitman, but close enough.

The damn Whits... I screw them up at least once a week. LOL

Doesn't help we have normally talked about Whitworth all the time and Whitman has stormed into the conversation in the past 15 months.

I always confuse them too, should just be Worth and Man I don't think I would screw them up as easily!

I haven't watched a ton of HSU play (mainly just D3 hoops invitational for a bit and this weekend), but I think they will have a decisive size advantage and will really help on the boards. Whitman likes high possession games, which I also get the feel from this HSU team. Could be one of the more interesting games of the Sweet Sixteen!

If anyone can find video of the last minute of the Augustana / U$T video I would love to see it.  How the f-ck does a team blow an 8 point lead w/ under 40 seconds to play?

Easy on the schadenfreude Faunch.  Some Bethel fans might remind you of last Saturday.  Or SJU's loss to Oshkosh last fall, etc. ::) ;)

I'm not concerned...any day the Tom$ lose is a good day.

Over here on the hoops board we all support the MIAC as they compete in the NCAA tourney to prove how strong of a D3 conference we are.

When you actually qualify and go to these games, faunch, its all about the MIAC.  You realize how little respect the MIAC gets vs the NESCAC, WIAC, and others getting 3, 4 or 5 teams in.  I remember last year when we
won the National Championship (you do remember we were National Champions last year, don't you?...or....as they say....."scoreboard!")  I remember thinking SJU should be here as well given the quality of teams at the NCAA and how good I remember the MIAC competition being last year.  Apparently the feeling isn't mutual and I suppose that has something to do with being the perennial bridesmaid;)  However, I guess its better to have been there and lost than not to have been there at all


(modified by GS for formatting)

Last year the MIAC was extremely competitive. I mean Bethel was the 5 seed last year and they are basically the same team that won the MIAC playoff this year and tied for regular season champs (granted an off-season of improving). The committee goes strictly by the data, so not getting more at-larges has to do with the MIAC teams SOS/WP and "key wins against regionally ranked teams." So although I agree with you that a lot of the MIAC teams could be very competitive in the NCAA tourney, especially last year with BU, Concordia, St. John's, St. Olaf (who won one game I believe) and UST (who uhhh won the whole thing), when it comes to it we don't have the criteria to get the at-large bids.

Now if you want to argue that is due to the fact that the top teams are all very close (for example Concordia split with BU, SJU and STO last year and swept by UST which is already 5 loses and assuming you don' win the MIAC tourney that is 6 loses and doesn't give you much wiggle room), we play 20 conference game which drags the SOS to .500 and limits the damage a perennially strong conference can do in the non-conference schedule, I will for sure agree with you. Especially compared to the 11 team NESCAC that plays only one round of conference games, which helps them maintain their gaudy SOS. This makes you wonder if the guys scheduling could every go the way of the girls and play a few teams only once during conference season?

Sorry for the long post here, but is it just me or did the MIAC seem less talented this year? Or was last year just one of the deepest MIACs in recent memory? A lot of talent graduated last year on a lot of those top teams (Cord, SJU, STO, UST). This year looking through the post-season awards and other remaining good players, their is much more returning as a whole.

On a separate, but related, topic...

I have been slightly disheartened by the conduct in recent years of the Hope and Calvin student sections. I am aware that I am a Hope fan, as as such am biased and so have not seen as much from the Hope students.

In recent years I have witnessed the Calvin students seemingly trying to emulate Big Ten and other D1 student sections. It has mostly coming the form of being borderline out-of-control. I recall a game at Calvin (last year I think) where the Calvin students rushed the court not just before the game was over, but while the game was actually in progress and not stopped for a timeout of because the clock seemed to strike zero. In that same game the Calvin students were being so overly rambunctious that they kept pushing the scoreboard that sits on the floor at half-court onto the court during the game because they were not just excited but jumping about wildly and pushing each other. I was also dismayed when the Calvin students taunted a Hope player with an apparent injury (turned out to be cramps).

I was also very disappointed in the Hope students a couple years ago when they flashed (wearing speedo's and not much else) a Calvin player while attempting to shoot a pair of free throws. And I was disgusted to learn that the Hope students at a game at Calvin taunted the parent (father if I recall correctly) of a Calvin player. I believe the player was injured  and the father was walking in front of the Hope Students. Absolutely despicable.

Just last week I was very disappointed to hear the Hope students yelling en mass "YOU SUCK!" at Calvin players. And I was very upset at Calvin students for chanting almost ten minutes after the game "There is no Hope!". Neither actions are supportive of their respective teams but are instead negative and taunting. I was raised with the ideals of sportsmanship and fair-play and always want this rivalry to be intense and spirited, but have no mean streaks or taunting or hard feelings once the final buzzer sounds. I truly hope(no pun intended) that Calvin fans support Hope outside of the rivalry as much as I support Calvin when they play, especially in the post season. After all, a M.I.A.A. win by any school is a win for all of us.

I understand this seems more critical of Calvin than of Hope, but please understand that I am a Hope fan and as such have probably subconsciously tuned out a fair bit of what the Hope students have done. I also sit behind the Hope students and facing the Calvin students at Van Noord Arena and on the same side as the Hope students and facing the Calvin students while at the DeVos.

As a completely unbiased person here I would like to comment.

"There is no Hope" - Great chant/saying given the school's name, I would not take offense to this.
Going after parents - quite uncalled for, I do not condone.
Flashing during FT - That is pretty funny and if the outfit is legal/not classified under indecent exposure, I definitely allow.
"You suck!" - Not clever and not nice, but it could be worse I suppose.
Making fun of injuries - Do not condone, very bad.

To me it seems like the students probably had a drink or two before the big Hope-Calvin rivalry and were excited for their team/school.

The bolded statement I very much believe in though. I think everyone should put their in-conference rival aside when it comes to national championships. A win for a team in the conference displays to the entire d3 Nation how strong your conference is!

Was it "flagrant" or "intentional"?

There was no audio for the stream and I always confuse the terms so I can't tell you, but didn't they do away with the verbiage "intentional" and made all fouls "flagrant 1" or "flagrant 2"? But from watching, the Bethel player was not close to the hoop (just inside half court) and had a clear path (if it was NBA that would have been the call) when the UWRF player fouled him. BU got two FT with no one on the lane and was awarded the ball back and took it out side line out of bounds and proceeded to not score.

They do still have the All-Star game... has been a big hit since it was introduced. Remember 2 members from each region selected plus two additional from the D3hoops.com Fan Vote.

Unfortunately Francis will not be eligible for two years as he is only a Sophomore. Sabin on the other hand, will be there if he chooses so, as Dave hinted yesterday he will be there one way or another (with Ripon or NABC All-Star Game). I wonder who the second will be out of the Central... Juwan Henry possibly? Probably also depends which WIAC school and if WashU are still playing.

Would enjoy hearing from anyone who was actually in attendance at either Toms or Royals games. So much is lost watching on a computer screen.  Viewing the end of the regulation time in River Falls, it was difficult to see a foul on the put back at the buzzer. 

Thought BU coach was very classy in his post game comments....but he and coach Tauer must have had pretty restless nights of sleep after losing games they each appeared to have in hand near the end.  Bethel played so well, yet their failure to take full advantage of the flagrant 1 intentional foul situation clearly gave UWRF new life.

As for Tommies, up 8 with :41 to go......I taking all bets on them holding on to that lead.  Hard to imagine; that's the kind of stuff UST has been on the delivery end of a few times!  :o

D3HOOPS POST-GAME PRESS CONFERENCE WITH BU

D3HOOPS ARTICLE

Wild turn of events for the Royals... tough way to close a great 4 years for the 2 seniors. Congrats on an amazing career for them though!

Same goes for UST seniors. I thought MN had 3 wins in the bag when I was watching them.. Darn!

And GBU, I was after the 2008 year so I am pretty sure I do not know your friend unfortunately.

One very heads-up play by Erickson deserves mention: he lost the ball and the Bethel player was on his way to a lay-up. Erickson chased him down, grabbed his jersey, and was called for a flagrant foul. The Bethel player missed both free throws and on the ensuing inbounds by Bethel, the Royals failed to score. That play alone saved defeat.

Interesting to call getting a flagrant foul heads-up. Yes it worked out for them since Hall ended up not making the FTs and they did not get a shot off next possession. But if he would have just fouled Hall on the layup, he could have missed both FT still and UWRF collects the D-board and the Falcons have the last possession to try and win it. I guess what I am trying to say is that it came down to giving the Royals the next possession after the foul because it was deemed "flagrant" which in my eyes is no where near a "heads-up play."
