Dubuque wins 64-58 in OT @ league leading Loras.

Last week Dubuque lost in OT @ league leading Coe.

Dubuque is close to being a very good team. 

To bad Coe couldn't have helped you by winning that close game at B.V..  A Coe win would have all but clinched a tournament berth for U.D.

Dubuque has Wartburg, B.V., and Cornell left.  U.D. has beaten Wartburg by 6 and BV by 10. Lost to Cornell early in the season.  Wartburg and Cornell are home games B.V. is away.  I always thought B.V. was one of the toughest venues to play in.

UD women beat Wartburg 58-53 in Dubuque tonight.

Over the last 3 games...

UD lost in OT @ league leading Coe...won in OT @ league leading Loras...won @ home over league leading Wartburg. 

That is a fantastic 3 game stretch for the Lady Spartans and should make the IIAC tourney an interesting one.

Coe (10-4) sits back kicks its feet up (unlikely) and ponders a big game at Wartburg on Wed.

Central (1-12) travels to Luther (2-11) with last place on the line. 

Simpson (10-3) is at Cornell (6-7), Simpson had a three point win against Cornell in Indianola earlier in the year.  Basketball is a game of matchups.  Can Cornell find that magic and pull an upset?

Loras (9-5) is at Wartburg (9-4).  Wartburg needs  a win to tie Coe for second.  Loras needs a win to join Wartburg in a tie for third.  Wartburg win sets up an already big game against Coe.

Dubuque plays at B.V..  Dubuque won earlier in the season 64 to 54. Win here clinches playoff spot for U.D.  Key to game B.V. is third in 3pt F.G. pct.  Dubuque is second in 3pt FG pct. defense.  The games (one) I've watch B.V. win three pointers were the difference.

good luck to all.

Dubuque wins @ BVU.  Not sure of the score because the camera never moved and the PA announcer was a little fuzzy.

The BVU camera operator either...

A - Forgot to show up for work study

B - Wasn't able to figure out how to move the darn thing

C - Getting randy with his/her girl/boy friend up in the camera nest and couldn't be bothered with it

If you think B.V. is annoying check out Wartburg.  You have to get the Video on the computer then go back and get the Audio.  Unfortunately the two are not in sync.  One is about ten seconds or more behind the other. 

Congrats to U.D. in getting a ticket to the dance (league tournament).

Assuming Simpson doesn't lose again, Wednesday's game at Wartburg will decide who gets the second bye in the IIAC Tournament and who will host the other in the semifinals.  Should be a good one.

BVU and Wartburg are known for having supposedly good broadcasting majors.  You would think they could do better than BVU having no audio and a camera that never moves and Wartburg having seperate audio and video feeds that aren't in sync. 

This should be a good conference tourney.  I don't see a team out there that is head and shoulders above the other teams like we have seen in past seasons.

They sound great just not in sync with the video.

Loras @ Simpson
Luther @ Coe
Wartburg @ Central

In the category of if, ifs and buts were candy and nuts.  If Loras beats Simpson. Simpson and  Coe tie for the league championship and Coe gets the number one seed in the tournament.  Loras won at home earlier in the season but plays at Indianola in the season finale.  A win for Loras would tie them with U.D. for fourth and possibly tie with U. D. and Wartburg (if Wartburg losses) for third (I'm not working out the tiebreaker on that one).

As Doolittledog said the B.V. at Cornell game will be big.

Bottom of the league Luther and Central have a chance for one last hurrah against Coe and Wartburg respectfully.  Wartburg has the honor of playing Central on Senior Night while Luther travels to C.R. to play Coe on Senior Night.

I remember Lisa Bluder on the radio one night talking about the uncertainty of Senior Night and how the players would react.  I have seen several games where the underdog will rise up and play superhuman ball and smite the opponent and the only explanation is Senior Night.

Good luck to all.

GAMES TONIGHT
#6 CORNELL @ #3 UNIVERSITY OF DUBUQUE

U.D. and Cornell split during the regular season both winning fairly close games at home.
Cornell 54  Dubuque 47 early in the season.
U.D. 59  Cornell 53
Sorry Doolittledog I have to pick U.D. to win this one (anyone that knows how poor my picking percentage is knows why I apologized).

#5 LORAS @ #4 WARTBURG.

Wartburg won both games 79 to 59 on Jan. 14, but on Feb. 11 at Wartburg the score was 55 to 52.  Loras seems to be coming on strong and Wartburg seems to fade a bit at the end of the season.

Wartburg remembers the pain last year of being the first IIAC #3 seed to ever loose to #6 seed (U.D.) defends the home turf and wins. 

Good Luck to all.

Lets hear your predictions.

After thought I think both of these games are going to be really fun to watch.  U.D. vs. Cornell more so than Wartburg/Loras because the sound at U.D. will be syncronized to the video.
