^^^ That's really interesting. Thanks for sharing. +1

Back to basketball -- 2019-20 Webster schedule is posted:

Non-conference games: home vs Illinois College, MO Bap, Manchester, and Hanover; neutral vs Piedmont (at Maryville (TN); away vs Maryville (TN) and Wash U.

^^^ Not basketball, but worth mentioning for SLIAC fans that SLIAC runners swept the podium in the 200 meter dash at the D3 track and field championships: 1-Prin, 2-Webster, 3-Greenville (Davis). Per this article, the first place finisher was DQ'd, moving the SLIC runners from 2,3,4 to 1,2,3:

Also, Webster is going to the baseball world series:

Nevermind on the question and about the possibility of Lindenwood Belleville moving to Division III.

BELLEVILLE Citing "ongoing financial and enrollment challenges," Lindenwood University will shut down most undergraduate programs on its Belleville campus after the 2019-2020 year, the school announced today. [...]

Nearly 80 percent of undergraduates at the Belleville campus are student-athletes with discounted tuition. Most of the teams will compete in the next year, except swimming, diving and men's ice hockey, which were disbanded.

Athletic scholarships will remain in place for students transferring to St. Charles, even if they don't participate in sports, according to Lindenwood spokesman Christopher Duggan.

Another article on the subject:

^^^ I believe you are correct about Cody McKinney. From being friends on Facebook with Denny for many years he posted frequently about his nephew's athletic achievements. I think Cody's father (Denny's brother) is boys basketball coach at Sullivan HS. Cody should do well at Fontbonne.

Fontbonne beats MSOE 3-1, plays UC Santa Cruz tomorrow.

I'm trying to get a read on next year. Is it still RMC and everyone else? They seemed to dominate (record-wise) and return their two top players, but do lose 3 starters, if I'm correct. Lynchburg, Guilford, Wash & Lee and Roanoke all lose their top 2, so VWC look likely to improve and make a run at RMC or a Pool C?

It wasn't R-MC and everyone else in the season just ended. R-MC did not have a top two players. ODAC POY Buzz Anthony is back, but the rest of the team will overall be less experienced. I think Guilford, which barely lost to national champs UW-Oshkosh in the elite eight, is the team to beat next season.

^^^ Eureka has football, too.

The main Lindenwood campus in St. Charles, MO was NAIA until a few years ago and is now NCAA D2, so maybe LUB is following suit. But with all those sports it seems like the SLIAC might not be the best fit if they wind up in D3.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to make it to Salem Fort Wayne this year. Something unexpected came up that prevented me from coming. Very disappointing since I booked my room in October, but it is what it is.

How have the crowds been? I know the place seats 13,000 or so, but I believe they were closing off the top section? I think I heard a number around 5,000 for the "lower bowl"? Is that correct?

Wheaton is just 3 1/2 hours away. Did they bring a big crowd Friday night? What about Oshkosh? They are a manageable 5 1/2 or so away? I think they would bring a lot based on the excitement.

The Oshkosh boxscore says about 2,000? Is that accurate?

They closed off the ends, but the sides were open all the way up. There were 14 seating sections on each side with about 150 seats in each, so about 4,200 seats there plus some extras higher up, thus 5,000 is about right. The 2,000 attendance figure also seems accurate. Wheaton, Swarthmore, and UW-O each had decent support, CNU a little less, especially tonight. Lots of Wheaton fans stuck around for tonight's game. Too bad you couldn't make it.

Here's another food option: Asian fusion, really good, not too expensive. It's just West of I-69 at exit 316 (which is a few miles north of the coliseum exit) in a complex with several other restaurants.

^^^ I saw some of Guilford late in the season and NCAA tourney. Marcus Curry is a terrific player. Congrats on a great season.

Going to Ft. Wayne to see how many points Aston Francis scores on Friday.

Per the game, RMC lead basically from 2-2 onward. They seemed to do really well shooting and absorbing the Swarthmore attach, but the Garnet defense in the second half stifled RMC. That allowed Swat to come back and make a game of it.

Not that it matters at this point, but to set the record straight. Late in the game the announcers were commenting that R-MC lead the whole way after the initial 2-2 tie. I watched the whole game and thought that wasn't quite right, but I wasn't simultaneously following live stats where I could have checked play-by-play. So I checked the box score just now. After that 2-2 tie Swarthmore went up 5-2 and 7-4 (at the 17:43 mark) before R-MC hit back-to-back threes and led until Swarthmore tied it at 47 at 13:10 in the second half. From there it was back and forth until the end.

First, congrats to Guilford on the win over St. Thomas. I was able to see most of the second half after watching the Jackets lose that heartbreaker. Luke Neeley and Darryl Williams each made about four three-pointers for R-MC in the first half. Jackets led 31-15 with 8 minutes left in the first half, then only scored 26 points the rest of the game. Swarthmore started defending the 3-pointer more and were tough defensively down low with a bunch of clean blocks. Officials are reluctant to call fouls on those last second shots. Not a lot of fouls called at all during the game, so no surprise they let that one go.

Great season for the Jackets. Congratulations! If GC can win tomorrow the wife and I might make the 325 mile drive to Fort Wayne next weekend.
