Grove City had to go to OT to beat the team that doesn't exist.  I can back up Hopefan's assertions.  We did some investigating over the break, including correspondence with the man who's currently caretaker for Ohio Midwestern's records - the school hasn't existed, legally or otherwise since 2016.  They played at least one game last season and these two this year, but if there's some other school using the name, there's no record of it anywhere.

It's an interesting case - more a curiosity than anything else.  I can't figure out what someone would have to gain by pretending to be a college to play basketball?

If the "institution" doesn't exist can the games really count in the W/L records of their D3 opponents?

Apparently the UN-School dressed only six players, and two fouled out.  They still had a last second shot to win.  That would have been quite a story. 
Realistically, I don't believe this will count in Grove City's record.

Maybe they're in it for the financial rewards - hotel rooms and a pizza meal. ::)

Maybe they had contracts to fulfill and they got the gang back together.

Those games are vapor in Massey as well.,
