My congrats too for Frazier and Sosa.  Great seasons by both and well-deserved AA honours.

Thanks for the additional stats, RogK.  Yes, IWU not a strong FT shooting team this year . . . only Sosa, Eck and Shanks really.  Several others needing some significant % improvements in FT shooting now in the off-season.  It will be interesting to see who steps up and becomes the 5th starter next year . . .  would love to see Raven Hughes back, Shank's "little sister" join in too.  I suppose Eck, Bowen and Lowis all have a shot at much more playing time, all with their own advantages and drawbacks. IWU surely needs more paint presence, rebounding and size down low.  Brovelli is very good, but we could use more. . .  No word yet, of course, on the newbies, and incoming freshmen who may play a part in the rotation next season. 

Stay well, all, and washy washy on those mitts. 

All best,

'70

Another soft-hitting statistical analysis, this time FT att per minute, minimum 10 att. I used the stats on ncaa.org.
A .1 att/min is the cutoff; I looked first at FT att, multiplied by 10 to check the minutes.
                                                 FT att / Minutes
.172 AUG Justice Edell                  58/338

The two players way ahead in this category, Nordling and Stavropoulos, did not play many minutes, but they could be interesting in coming seasons.

Mia has two strong recruits so far this year. Launi Chanthaboury, St. Charles North. A short, 3 shooter not afraid to attack the basket. Natalie Anderson, Eureka (a local player), nice height and strong scorer. Launi reminds me a lot of Kelsey Walsberg from a couple of years ago. Short at 5'6" but a monster shooter. Kelsey was a star in high school and started at D3 Monmouth where she had at least one 30-pint game. But when she transferred to IWU, she never started. Well, I think she started her senior year in the playoffs, because that was the year flu and injury hit the Titans at the worst possible time. She might've been a star at Monmouth, but rarely got off the bench at IWU. The situation with Launi might be different. Last year's recruits were good, not great. Both Launi and Natalie might find themselves starting as Sophomores.

Ultimate, thanks for the info on the new TITANS.  Sounds promising.  I'm sure Mia has more coming in . . .

Hope all are safe and well, taking all precautions.

Well Rog   if the world gets normal by November i might get to see you. Rose posted schedule playing at North Park and also at IWU.  Im a happy dad my daughter has decided she does want to be a engineer and not transfer.  Funny comment by her. I asked her what would her and the other 6 freshman would do if they got another year of legibility and that this past year was on the job training  and how good they would be in a 5th year.  Her reply dad we will all be working making six figures not playing ball. I said a dad can only hope you all want masters.

Hope you and your family are safe

That will be a good early test for RHIT and North Park.
Hopefully conditions will allow spectators to be present. If not, we'll rely on Gregory Sager's broadcast.

The only verbal commit for NPU of whom I'm aware at the moment is 5'3 guard Katelyn Sparlin from Plainfield North.

Rose-Hulman signed a 6 foot 3/4 player from texas today that had several D1 Offers. I was told she is even more athletic then Nosa Ighan which would be saying something. Rose already had a dominant rebounding team and a very good defensive team despite their youth. The problem was scoring and turnovers. This player will help with the scoring but they still need to sign some point guards so th ewings dont have to keep bringing up the ball and can concentrate on being shooters.

I know you mean well, Jester, but we use the words "verbally committed" in DIII. No one signs anything other than a non-committal document DIII has created for high school students to enjoy the experience. However, there are so many factors that can lead to recruit not playing for a school, it is insane. Deposit, show up on campus, get fully set-up with classes, show up to a team meeting, show up to practices, get a uniform, be at a game, and get into a game ... anywhere along the way they could change their mind and they can decide not to play (or even get cut).

So we usually leave the "signed" to DI (and even DII) where there are actual legal documents signed per scholarships and where one commits ... and just say "verbally committed" in our world. :)

lol ok im not legal representation.  Rose is fortunate to have another player decide having a engineering degree form their university was more attractive then attending a school that is in Division 1

Your correct. Rose will lose players because the academics and the time demand are very stringent. This past year one recruit didnt make it to the end of first quarter. 3 older player decided they needed to spend more time for their studies then play.  The whole recruiting class from the year before either transferred  or decided they didnt want to play anymore.  That is a recipe in how you get 7 freshman and 1 senior on a roster.

They do appear to have everyone coming back which will bode well for rose. The one thing going for them from last year is they all went through the learning and beatings together and were figuring out how to play at end of year.  If they can sign a point guard to go with this recruit they should be winning far more then they lose but only time will tell. Hopefully their will be a season. My wife is worried their wont be. I told her if there is no football and the country still on lock down we have alot more to worry about.
