Congratulations to Brittany Carper, an assistant coach at Carthage the last two seasons; she is now head coach at Aurora University :

This article notes what a superb NAIA D2 player she was, not too long ago. One season she averaged 21.5, 5.8 rebs, 7.2 assists and 4 steals. Her team won national titles twice.

Holness looks pretty good, nice shot, pretty quick.  A good addition, a very worthy understudy for Baltes? 

Titans need some size, some rebounding to help out Seibring, Reaber and others in the post.  Need some pounders, some enforcers a la Karen Solari!  Sure would love to see Shelby Jackson return.  Just say'in. 

Good luck to all graduating Titans!  Graduation in less than a month now.  Amazing how early -- May 5th in front of the new State Farm Hall (new classroom building), north side of the IWU Quad.

Mark, May 5th sounds about typical now that they are a standard calendar (I kind of liked the 4-1-4 system they had when we were there).  I'm assuming a primary reason they dropped the January term was because summer jobs were mostly all taken by the time Titans finished the term - when did that happen, do you know?

It had been changed for some time when I arrived in 2002, Ypsi.  I've been at an institution that has the short term in January.  Doing it in May has several advantages, and getting a jump on the summer job market is one of them.  Another one is that the better weather is advantageous, both for classes on campus (tennis, golf, environmental activities) and for travel courses.  May 5 is actually a slightly later date than usual, but that's just because of the way the days fell in the calendar.  We had a holiday break that was longer for a day or two for the same reason, and that pushed back the graduation date.
You'll never walk alone.

HT, the January term also had an advantage for me. ;)  My senior honors thesis was a 'nationwide' survey of college students (done face-to-face); since most schools are September to December, then January to April, my January tour worked a lot better than May!

Since my blessed parents were willing to send me to Europe that January, when I chose the survey instead they rented me an RV.  When it totally froze up after 3 days, I came back and used motels the rest of the month.  Fortunately, back then, Motel 6 really DID charge $6 a night!  My 'nationwide' survey never went west of Texas, but did hit most of the south, midwest, and east.

Statistics and research methodology eventually became my specialty, and I was rather embarassed about how biased and shoddy my thesis was, but it WAS a learning experience.  And, after all, that IS the point of it! ;)

Perhaps this was posted earlier.  The IWU program named Katy Seibring as the MVP for the season.  A break-out year for Ms. Seibring, first-team All-CCIW as well.  Coach Smith has recruited well.  She awarded 10 players letters, with 8 of 10 returning.  Of course, will be tough to replace seniors Melissa Gardner and Michelle Bilek, two wonderful TITANS.  But, three starters and many important role players returning.  Starters back are:  Seibring, McMahon and Baltes.  Reabers and Scurlock key role players returning.  Titans need some toughness, some bangers to hit the glass.  I'm sure "run and jump" will continue . . . perimeter shooting still important.  The future is bright, but CC will be the favorite, I would think. 

Looking forward to the new season . . . in time.

Michelle Bilek named "Director of Basketeball Operations" for Div. I Columbia U in New York City.  Hired by Coach Glance, formerly of ISU, now the new head coach at Columbia.  Touring the Ivy League for basketball games is a pretty good gig.  Congrats to Michelle -- who has aspirations of being a coach herself.  Story on the iwu.edu sports page now.

I'm always amused when a D3 school apes the NAIA practice of the signing ritual. It has no function within D3, of course -- no athletic scholarships, therefore no reason to sign a letter of intent with your parents and your new coach hovering over your shoulders -- but I understand why it's a necessary PR device in parts of the country where the NAIA has a strong presence and the need to create the illusion of a "signing" is thus apparent for D3 recruits. But the NAIA doesn't really have that great a foothold in central Illinois any more, which makes this "signing" mildly strange.
