I see the semi-finals got postponed for tomorrow night due to the snow. AO (or any other UMAC lurkers), what are you expecting for the semis tomorrow and finals later in the week? Can your Eagles defend home court?

Maybe the snow won't stop and they'll just have to cancel the tournament and give us the AQ?   ;D We've won 13 in a row, but the final four teams are all talented and capable of winning tough games on the road.

Can't remember who you root for, AO, but if the tourney was canceled ... the regular season champ would get the AQ. That's usually the back-up plan for all conferences.

Northwestern.  The Roads look much better today.  Game On!

AO, do you have a scouting report for the eagles? Excited to watch them tomorrow and want a little pre-game knowledge for the game. Havenít been able to watch much UMAC this year, just vox score watching.

8 different players have led us in scoring this year.  They can all shoot the 3.  I'm sure we'll probably bring a lot of help if Walford posts up.  We're definitely more comfortable playing high tempo this year, taking the first good look.  One of the more surprising things from Saturday's UMAC championship against Scholastica was the foul trouble we had,  we only average 14 fouls a game.  Should be a fun one tonight!

AO,
Congrats to your Eagles tonight. From my interactions you have a classy program and earned the W. The Eagles played fast, loose, and confident, and seemed primed for the upset from the drop. My Johnnies played tight and just off their game all night. That's not an excuse by any means, and it's an absolute credit to the players and fans. Who was the home team tonight? Anyway, best of luck tomorrow against UWO, I will be cheering for you. From what I saw in the earlier game, UWO is just on a different level with their length and athleticism, but I certainly hope it's a good game. Congrats Eagles!
From,
A humbled Johnnie

Thanks for the kind words.   Sometimes the shots just drop, but I still spent most of the 2nd half terrified that Stokman was going to heat up.  Losing Walford to some questionable calls was also tough for the Johnnies.  I hope we don't have to see you in the playoffs next year, there's a ton of talent coming back.  I'm much happier just playing our annual scrimmage.

As for Oshkosh they looked really good in the 10 minutes I saw.  I can see why people are picking them over Nebraska Wesleyan.  We'll definitely be missing our UMAC tourney MVP Brady Peterson tomorrow.   He suffered a knee injury that required surgery against Scholastica but was still able to finish that game somehow.  If we beat the Titans they might have to immediately update the greatest upsets of all time.

That feature is first round upsets but that hypothetical win would definitely belong on a list somewhere!

Bethany Lutheran has build a nice little program there in Mankato. I haven't looked at any other rosters yet, but BLC returns Cire Mayfield and Trenton Krueger who were their leading scorer a year ago. HC Matt Fletcher has some strong ties in AAU and youth programs in Minnesota and seems to keep adding talent every year. They missed the tournament last year, but don't forget 2 seasons ago they knocked off St. John's in their house in the tournament.

Northwestern and North Central host NACC foes MSOE and Wisconsin Lutheran in a pair of games each. Northwestern plays MSOE tonight in a matchup of conference winners from last season and plays Wisconsin Lutheran on Saturday. North Central is vice versa.

Bethany Lutheran hosts what should be one of the better team in the ARC this season in Simpson. Should be an excellent game.

St. Scholastica hosts UW-EC in what is probably a very stiff challenge out of the gate.

Crown hosts Bethel tomorrow. Player of the year Tim Wendel returns for Crown, interested to see how much help he has this season. Tough game to start the season.

Wisconsin-Superior is hosting a tournament this weekend and plays Marian tonight, the other game is St. John's and Nebraska Wesleyan. Wisconsin-Superior will play one of those two on Saturday.

Minnesota-Morris visits Concordia-Moorhead tonight.

Northland is on the road for two, playing Macalester tonight and Bemidji State tomorrow.

Martin Luther doesn't open until next weekend.

Just a little 'dull' rundown of the UMAC weekend games. No conversation here like what is going on at the MIAC football board where those sophisticated renaissance gentlemen are having deep conversations about,
Beer
Fishing- Ice, Lake, River (also known as fly fishing)
Movie Trivia
Presidential assassins of the 19th & 20th century
Murderous dictators
Religious cult leaders
UST students daddy's cars
UST female students low moral standards
Soybean & corn harvest in Minnesota & central Iowa
Hair Bands of the 80's
Tailgating
Fruitcake
Homemade beer, wine, cider, moonshine
And many more that they just can't think of currently.
