tough audience


While on the announcer(s) -- during the women's game (which I did watch most of) about midway through the third period, with Webster up 20+, the announcers completely gave up on the game and started talking about the NFL playoffs and other stuff for pretty much the remainder of the game. Practically no mentions of the score or time remaining or what was happening in the game. I guess they figured only Eureka fans were watching and that they, too, had lost interest. Also, the camera never moved and there was no view of the scoreboard/clock. I doubt anyone watching cared about the stuff they were talking about late in the game. A pretty rude way to treat your audience.

That's just bad...

And as we napped... or followed a different game.... 3 of our 6 winless teams won yesterday!!!

LaVerne wins at Chapman 68-60 in what had to be a stunning upset..
Penn State-Berks wins at home vs Gallaudet 88-81

and in an incredible world record any level from toddler to seniors, offensive output, copied directly from the D3hoops scoreboard:
Bard    676    Rochester Tech    80    Final    *   

ok,ok  a quick check of the box score shows RIT won 80-67.... and Bard remains winless

1st amusing response to this wins + karma!!!!

And a final note.. hats off to Illinois College for helping out MacMurray at seemingly last second... ice build-up and rain led to a leaky roof at Mac and somehow arrangements were made to transfer women's and men's games over to the other end of Jacksonville to Illinois College... Not sure how much earlier it was seen that there was a problem (I see a facebook note came out from MacMurray only at approximately noon on game day), but the coordination  to pull it off had to be significant.   Great to see cross-town rivals working together....says so much about both schools....

Huge Saturday in the SLIAC.... what are the repercussions...

Greenville at Blackburn.. Both desperate for a win in this game... one of those that could make the difference at the end of the season when determining tourney slots  ooops at Greenville.. Greenville with the win, Blackburn now a bit under the gun

Webster at Eureka...  A Webster win solidifies their hold on 1st place.... a Eureka loss continues an alarming downward trend.... on the other hand, a Eureka win is huge for keeping them comfortably within Tourney range, a Webster loss brings them back to the pack   Major win for Eureka, very good game, helps Eureka more than hurts Webster

Fontbonne at Iowa Wesleyan... a Fontbonne win solidifies a surprising rise to Tourney contention... an Iowa Wesleyan win puts them in tourney conversation, but still with a long way to go   IWU easy, mystifying performance by Fontbonne

Prin at Mac.... both playing for pride.... I hate to see either lose this game, but it's gonna happen.    A leaky roof at Mac sends game To neighboring Illinois College;  Prin win :) :), Mac loss  :(

Spalding at Westmin.... a must win for Westmin if they continue to aspire for a tourney slot, a Spalding upset would put Spalding back in contention... Easy win for Westminster, Spalding falls out of things

Hopefan SLIAC Player of the Week goes to Jaiquan Edwards of Spalding... and as he is a Freshman, he also gets the Freshman POW!!

Edwards started the week by leading Spalding to the stunning upset win over Eureka...20 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, and 3 blocks... then when the rest of his team decided to take the day off and get embarrassed at Westmin, Edwards went back to work, 22 points and 11 rebounds....  Any non believers out there, just review every boxscore from Spalding's conference games... the kid PLAYS every night..

I had been under the impression that Prin's AJ Byrd was a Freshman (maybe listed that way originally?).. but see now he is a sophomore transfer.... He gets transfer of the week .... he had 31 points, 8 boards and 6 assists in Prin's loss against Greenville, then helped Prin to their first D3 and SLIAC win of the year
with 19 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists vs MacMurray.
