Well, Greg, Olivia Lett did have a pretty special year with IWU that time.  Something surely worth "gushing" over.  However, I don't remember saying all that much about Olivia either . . . but maybe you can dig up all the archives and show us how we were loyal Titan fans, singing the praises of one of the top players in the history of the program.  That would be news.  LOL.

Season over, great seasons by WC and IWU.  Wish both could have gone further in the tournament -- IWU running into a good Trine team two years in a row.  Wartburg must be awfully good to take out, take apart Trine so easily in the next round.

It should be a great Final Four, esp. if the two undefeated teams reach the Championship game.

I'm done for this go 'round.  It's off to softball, baseball and other summer travel and interests.  I'll check in from time-to-time to see the recruiting news.

Zaijian!

Admittedly my exposure to Lett was limited but she was one of the best collegiate women players that I've ever seen.  She had serious game. It was fun to watch even when it beat you.  Good luck to her in her new endeavor.

Sorry if this sounds gushing Greg.   ;)

Come on, guys. You two went on about her endlessly, even after she stopped playing. And, no, I'm not going to spend the morning delving into the archives over this in order to mine quotes; I've got better things to do.

It makes no difference to me, BW, as you weren't in constant Lett-lauding mode in this room in the past. Probably had something to do with you being this, rather than this. ;)

Thanks, Pat. You've allowed me to find the post that I would've used had I cared to spend all morning looking for it:

Actually, neither Mark or I has talked about Olivia Lett beyond what naturally fit into the discussion.

Not true, Chuck. I went back and counted. ;) Nine mentions of her in this room over the past six weeks prior to the current discussion, seven of them by the two of you -- and most of those seven mentions quite definitely shoehorned her into the post.

Tell you what: You guys stop talking about IWU's assistant coaches, I won't mention NPU's Lauren Rosengarden, Shanice Sadler, or Erin Cepa, and we'll call it even. :D

Google found it for me in like two minutes. :)

Two minutes more than I was willing to put into it. ;)

The combined W-L record of the four remaining NCAA tourney teams is an extraordinarily superb 120-3.
Yet, three of those teams will combine for a 1 win, 3 loss weekend.
And consider that seven of the nine CCIW teams finished their season with a loss. Only Millikin and Augustana ended things on a winning note.
Think about that for 8 seconds.

OK, so I exceeded the 1 year limitation of the national title and POY, but was well within the hiring time-limit.  Did any of the NPU assistants have national title rings or make national POY?

I still congratulate Olivia Lett on her appointment as Millikin HC, unless that seems to much like gushing to you. :P

Undefeated Amherst vs. Bowdoin, from their same league, for the national championship.  Was surprised how easily Bowdoin took apart undefeated Wartburg. 

May the best team win . . . Amherst won by 4 in a previous match up earlier in the year, on their home floor.

It was a GREAT game for 27 minutes, then Amherst put it into another gear - Bowdoin didn't score a single point for the next 11 minutes!  Amherst has now won two consecutive undefeated national titles.

Amherst's coach has to be getting some good D1 offers; nothing more for him to prove in D3.
