Hi everyone. I'm a long-time reader of CCIW men's and women's basketball. I joined the boards just recently. I go to the games or watch online.
Welcome UTF!  Always good to have another Titan fan here!

Wheaton recruits...

I guess making the final four helped a little.  Some good resumes on that list, for sure.
Resume not only look good but that is a large recruiting class!  Enough for a JV team all by themselves!  I'm guessing a few will be on the varsity sooner than later.

My impression was the same.  Seems like a little more scoring heft and rebounding stats in this class vs recent classes.  But I make no assumptions on next level ability since you don't know all the details.  I have heard however that the Sinek kid can fill it up - a 53 pt game on his sheet.  (He's undersized at 6'1" but I thought the same of a certain 6'1" transfer 3 yrs ago that ended up working out ok.)

Final four sure didn't hurt.  Seems to me that benefit should really kick in the next couple recruiting classes.  Hoping anyway.

NCC has now scheduled it’s 9th and final non-con game vs. Rose-Hulman on 11/25. Rather unusual for the Cardinals to be playing two non-tournament games on consecutive days.

North Central will kick off it’s 2019-2020 schedule by hosting National Champion Wisconsin-Oshkosh on Tues., Nov 12th at 7 PM. NOTE, this game may be moved to Wed., 11/13.

The Cardinals non-conference schedule is now as follows;

Tues, 11/12 — Wisconsin-Oshkosh (May be moved to Wed, 11/13)
Fri, 11/15 — Greenville U
Mon, 11/25 — Rose-Hulman
Tues, 11/26 — Benedictine
Sat, 11/30 — Vs TBA Olivet @ Kalamazoo Tournament
Sun, 12/1 — Vs TBA Kalamazoo @ Kalamazoo Tournament
Wed, 12/11 — @ Aurora
Sat, 12/28 — Vs Sul Ross State @ Texas Shootout in Austin, TX
Sun, 12/29 — Vs Concordia (TX) @ Texas Shootout


The Cardinals opponents @ the Kalamazoo Classic/Tournament have now been determined, and are indicated above.

That slate had a pretty healthy OWP last year:

Wisconsin-Oshkosh 29-3 **
Greenville U 17-9
Rose-Hulman 17-9
Benedictine 13-12
Olivet 13-14
Kalamazoo 7-18
Aurora 17-12 **
Sul Ross State 10-15
Vs Concordia (TX) 13-14

Overall 2018-19 record: 136-106 / .562

** - tourney qualifier

Oshkosh may not provide as much of a SOS boost as last year's record would have, but the Bennies have typically been a little better than .500, so perhaps they will mitigate any regression from the defending champions.
