In bigger news from the Augie/Wheaton game: Grey kept the jacket on for 15+ minutes.

The German media has a video feed that focuses solely on Joachim Lw during the World Cup matches.

I really think we need one for Grey.

The entire game.

Neb Wesleyan  80  Coe 72

They're just toying with teams now making them think they have a shot at The BeltTM only to laugh maniacally at the end ...."nope"


NWU host Luther on Saturday, they are the Norse and don't appear to have a mascot so here's a pic of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer


Luther came within 52 of beating NWU in Lincoln last year.  So yeah.

Alma's primary lineup can be viewed as 4 guards, 1 big.  Hope put Ray on Stevens, either Granger or Towns on Gamble/Rake which left one of them to guard Harvey.  I don't think Hope liked that match-up and Dennis was kicking tail and taking names all night so Preston sat on the bench.

Against Alma's zone having both on the floor and neither being capable 3-point shooters is kind of tying your own hands behind your back (remember my kingdom for a 6-5 or taller 3-point threat).  So Hope used Hackert and D. Beckman more  and basically gave them the green light.   Now, their minutes might have diminished if they missed some of those shots and Hope may have just tried something, it worked, and they stuck with it.

The risk of course was on the defensive end, but Hope held their own particularly in rebounding where Alma struggles anyway and for the most part were trading 3 points for 2 most of the night.  On a night Alma's hitting 3's this might not of have looked like such a great idea.  The biggest "surprise" to me was the job Beckman and Lewis did on their defensive assignments against two very good perimeter players in Woodruff and Kleiver.   Had it not been for the great effort of Amari Hudson this could have been ugly, conversely had it not been for the great efforts of D. Beckman and Hackert this could have been ugly.  Basketball!!!


Saturday's zone from Olivet is the same 2-3 yet so very very different due to personnel differences, a small lineup might not workout as well for them.  You can call this Hope's zone examination week.  Part I and Part II

Watch for Olivet to pull an old zone Hope used to use a lot back when Ryan Klein played and was the point man in a 3-2 or 1-2-2 look.  Olivet's using Trevor Manuel there and usually plays hyper aggressive for a few possessions, they'll also press the heck out of you sometimes.

Not only do they have four losses, but the losses cancel out the wins in the sense that the loss to Frostburg is the one that sticks in my craw. I don't mind the losses to the ODAC teams, but there isn't a win against those squads either - Guilford is the only significant win.

I'd argue the wins over Salisbury and CNU are overrated. Those teams probably shouldn't have been ranked - and I blame myself for giving Salisbury a small amount of love one week. When you have four losses, something has to stand out. Nothing about UMW's resume stands out that isn't canceled out with something else.

Hmm...Massey had Salisbury at #24 until they lost to York last night and currently has CNU at #18...D3hoops' current Top 25 has Salisbury at #24 and CNU at #18.  Now, as I've said, I think Salisbury's been playing over their heads and it's starting to show, but CNU's pretty solid...obviously, Salisbury will drop out of the Top 25, as they should, but based on their body of work prior to last night, they belonged...CNU still belongs.

He still has four seasons of football eligibility remaining. The distinction here (and I didn't realize that he'd spent three semesters at Dayton; I thought that he entered college this past fall) is that his calendar is not favorable for getting in those four seasons. In D3 you get ten semesters as a full-time student within which to use up your four seasons of eligibility in any given sport. Anthony will now have six semesters of eligibility remaining when he checks into preseason camp this coming summer. That's not conducive to playing four seasons of football; he'd have to either forego school altogether or reduce his status to part-time for a couple of spring semesters over the next four school years. That can be tricky in terms of coursework, and it would extend his undergraduate education to six years, which a lot of people aren't willing to do. Plus, it would screw up his ability to play basketball.

Tigers are down and I believe they will struggle to win another game this year. Getting beat (8 losses in a row) and getting beat badly most every time out.
No idea whats going on but whatever that may be, it is painful to watch.

None-the-less I will enjoy watching the ODAC battles.

Give'm hell
tfa2, I went to the Ferrum game last night to see FC's venue, to honor former GC great Sanborn and, frankly, because the Quakers are a fun team to watch.   I'm looking forward to seeing the Tigers when they visit Guilford on Feb. 2.  One of the first things I do when I return from a game is check all the ODAC scores it's definitely interesting to see how things are shaking out in a very competitive ODAC race.

That sounds like even more fun!

I got to watch a heavy portion of the Toms game last night for the first time this year. Abundant depth for sure. It seems scoring opportunities come almost equally between that 1st and 2nd wave. Defensively, however that 2nd wave has match-up challenges. Part of that might have been some of the really nice sets Bethel was running.

Bethel's announcers were a doozy. The screeching and hooting can do a number on a tablets speakers.

Monday should be festive at UST. It will be interesting to see how the Freshman PG handles the emotional rivalry for the first time.
