Glad to see you are well, Dagarman. You had been abroad, no? Are you still overseas?

Just to add a little more context here, I've bolded the teams that are NOT in 1st place in their Pool A conference right now...

Mideast:              Marietta, Heidelberg, John Carroll, Case Western (likely Pool B though), Baldwin-Wallace
Midwest:              Stevens Point, St. Thomas, Concordia Ill, UW-Whitewater
New England:       Southern Maine, Amherst, ECSU, Tufts
Mid-Atlantic:          Rowan, Moravian, Rutgers-Camden, Ramapo, Gettysburg
New York:            Cortland State, St. John Fisher (Pool B possibility)
South :                Emory (could be Pool B), Shenandoah, Birmingham Southern (Pool B candidate), York PA
West:                   Linfield (likely won't need it), Trinity TX
Central:               Webster, Buena Vista

On a second pass down the list, the fringe might be something like...
Millsaps, UW-Oshkosh, Hendrix, Alvernia, Allegheny, Oswego State, Wheaton, Berry, Endicott, Adrian, Rhodes, Kean (surprised not higher, but SOS not good this year), Salisbury, Frostburg State, Ohio Northern (only because they have pretty much all the OAC heavies coming up), Ithaca.

How many MAC coaches are left from the Boykins era?

None. 

Toledo is one of the top teams in the MAC now, so they might be in a position to take a pass on a potential contributor depending on needs.  There are a lot of other teams that could use a point guard though.  The league is full of good athletic 6'3" players, but they never have the bigs and the point guard play is usually skittish.  I think most coaches in the league would give the kid a good look no matter what the height if they thought he could play at that level.

How many teams from the ASC go to the conference tournament? I heard 8 but wasn't sure. It's a tight bunched up mess in the standings right now for sure.

Trinity wins in 12, 4-2. Don't know details but an ejection and a bench clearing. Sounds like fun. Too darn bad that Centenary is in the dark ages without a video feed.

The non-D3 losses are irrelevant to the tournament, but should count for polling (especially since they are not world-beaters in their divisions).  I have no real problem with Linfield being #1; I DO have a problem with them being unanimously #1.  That should be reserved for a team absolutely running away with the division - such is clearly not the case.
I guess we can wait and give them all the votes after they get another Bronze and Walnut trophies in Appleton after the last game.  They lost today to GFU so problem solved. I don't think they get all the votes now for #1

Colin Lake 5-7  G  Ottawa Lake-Whiteford (Michigan, near Toledo)  will attend North Park

Apologies for not knowing if he has sent his deposit in yet.  This will have to do, http://monroecountybasketball.com/2014/04/17/lake-to-play-at-north-park-university/

Lake was named Class C player of the year by bankhoops.com.

Lake scored 47 against one of the best teams in Michigan this past year, Detroit Consortium.  He has range, lets say.

I held off on posting this, for precisely the reason you mentioned. (His deposit may actually be in by now, but I haven't heard about it yet.) NPU beat out Albion, Adrian, and Millikin for Lake. Aside from all the honors and statistical accomplishments he earned, Lake also had a workout with a MAC school, Toledo. Tod Kowalczyk and his staff loved Lake's game, but just couldn't see their way to offering a player that small a scholie to a MAC school.

Small or not, this is a kid who appears to have some nice CCIW potential.

MAC coaches didn't learn anything from Earl Boykins if they are afraid to recruit a player just because of a height deficiency!

How many MAC coaches are left from the Boykins era?

Probably none, but surely they check out the history of the MAC just a bit. ;D  Maybe Earl didn't put down a big enough beat down on Toledo! ::)

And Earl was significantly shorter than Colin Lake (unless they are faking his height like they faked Earl's).  (He came in listed as 5'8", went to the NBA as 5'5" - from colleagues who taught him, 5'3" was closer to the truth.)
