WOW!! Great ball game, and near comeback by Nichols.  Swarthmore 69-65 over Nichols.  Inside the paint was not for the faint of heart.  Some serious banging and hooping going on between the Swat bigs and Nichols bigs.  Good stuff!

The usual concern at a sectional final is with cutting down the net. At Kolf Arena in Oshkosh, they're concerned with putting the net back on the rim. Somehow, several strands of one of the nets came unhooked, delaying the game.

Christopher Newport punches its ticket to its second Final Four in four years with a 79-70 win over Williams.

Thanks!! I can’t believe it!! Final Four!!!  I am so happy for the team, the seniors, and especially for Marcus Carter. As a sophomore he was named All-American. Then the injuries. And this year the injuries continued and yet he not once even considered giving up! Wow!  Congrats to the team and coaches!

Finished with 62 points including a couple big 3s at the end. How's he going to top that in Fort Wayne?
Francis 19 of 37 from the field, rest of Wheaton was 7 of 19.

Wheaton 91
Marietta 87

Congrats to Wheaton on its first-ever D3 Final Four appearance.

Congrats as well to a really good Marietta team on a fantastic season.

Lastly, congrats to Aston Francis, who broke the D3 tourney single-game scoring record of 59 set by Guilford's Ben Strong in 2007. It took Strong a full game and three overtimes to get that 59. Francis finished with 62 in regulation ... none bigger than the huge trey from the corner he hit in the last few seconds to propel Wheaton from defeat to victory.

Greg mentioned on the CCIW board that it is a NCAA tourney single game scoring record, I would have to imagine the 12 made 3s would also be a single game record?

Such a fun player to watch. Excited we get to see him at least one more time.

It tied the record, originally set by Augustana's Kirk Anderson in a 1993 Elite Eight game against UW-Platteville.
