IWU Sports Updates (from the SID's office) has sent an update stating that IWU will host.  It came at 10:08 CDT.

Are individual schools notified before the general public? It would be nice to see confirmation of these sites by the NCAA.

I predict that the WashU women will be playing St. Benedict at Stevens Point (and the men will be play Wheaton at Wheaton).

I was half right.  St. Benedict is more than 500 miles from IWU, so it must be the seeding overriding.

Well, the Bears will have the St. Benedict game to get reacquainted with Shirk Center, where they last played 11-18-06, but not in a game with IWU, because on 11-17 they had lost their first game of the Tip-Off Classic and the year to Depauw, which made a nice bookend for Depauw come the NCAA Championship.

At this point, we all know that Pat's bracket is destroyed (Oglethorpe over George Fox...bah). With only one of his final four teams, left, and neither of the finalists still in it, I think it is safe to say that he won't get this year's bragging rights.  So, how is everyone else doing?

I've got 4 of 8 left, and two Final Four teams out (Whitewater and Rochester).  But both of my finalists are still alive.

Go Bruins...dominate the Dutch.

I've got 6 of 8 still alive, and only Rochester eliminated from the FF.  I have IWU over Hope in the title game.

With the demise of IWU and Hope tonight, my bracket just went from contender to garbage. :(

Well, that Holland would be nice too. But to be honest, I don't really care where I'm going, just that it is the Final Four and the Bruins are in it!
