Central does get another win today over Luther 94-90. So maybe they exceeded expectations for those who only have them 4 conference wins in the projections. It is just disappointing to have them play well in a number of pre-Christmas games and then do so poorly after Christmas. Seems to happen every year under Douma. They have the potential to be a top half team, yet every year they struggle to make the tourney. Once they do though they give it a good run. This year they will need a lot of help to get there. I hope all these guys really give it their all in the off season. I am ready for them to live up to their potential.

Not that anyone needs more reason to think that #1 NWU is having a great year, but they currently lead the nation with an amazing 54.5 FG% and are second in the nation with a 1.85 Ast:TO ratio. An incredibly efficient and well oiled offense the Prairie Wolves are running this season.

Off the subject but nevertheless interesting.  I watched a documentary on our local public television station about George Washington Carver.  It seems he spent a year at Simpson College in the1890s and went on to earn a Bachelor's degree and Master's degree at Iowa State.  If you don't know who he is, you need to enrich your knowledge.
Reality is for those who lack imagination 😀

So. Many. Peanuts.

Biggest game of the night is going to be Central at Simpson.  Looking at things a little closer, UD will have the tie breaker of Central via head-to-head…tonight is a must win for the Dutch.
