After opening the season with two losses, the Green Knights have rattled off 14 in a row. In those wins is an OT win over Oshkosh and a win over a good Eau Claire team that just beat my Pointers. They can win the MWC all they want and no one will bat an eye. They need to win in the NCAA tournament...on a semi-regular basis before anyone notices.

What's the capacity at the new gym?  With all the carnage across the CCIW and WIAC, we could see some hosting opportunities come SNC's way, right?  The SOS is solid.

SNC is halfway through their conference season. I'm guessing their SoS will continue to drop even if they keep winning.

A bit, but not too much.  The MWC was .530 in the non-con, so they're starting from a pretty strong place.  If the rankings came out right now, they're probably third.  An Elmhurst loss or two might get them up to second.  That's hosting position for sure.

A) It's not really a "new" gym. Schuldes was remodeled, expanded, and renamed. But the gym space is largely the same.

B) It's not usually done, but there is space along the baselines for temporary bleachers. I believe those were used when SNC hosted the women's final four, and when it used to host high school playoffs. Converting that from standing room could add 100-300.

SNC has beaten Oshkosh and Eau Claire, both of which have beaten UWSP the first time around in the WIAC. I guess the Knights are more noticeable so far this season than the Pointers.

If you want to hang your hat on that, go ahead, but that's not saying much. Point wasn't supposed to be very good anyway, missing out on last year's tournament and being picked 4th in the WIAC preseason poll. You basically just repeated what I said about SNC beating Oshkosh and Eau Claire, both of whom beat Point.
