From a 6 point half time deficit to a 14 pt win, Wheaton shot almost 48% from downtown in the 2nd half and cruised to a victory in Rock Island. They held the Viking to 33% shooting in the 2nd half and 41% for the game.  They went 1-2 this year against Augustana, but picked the right game to win.

Biggest upset of the night: Wheaton 93, Augustana 79 at the Carver P.E. Center.

For all the endless talk about sectional hosts that's raged on for a full week, the hosts have gone 1-3 tonight with only UW-Oshkosh surviving into the elite 8.

They're dancing in the streets of Oshkosh tonight.

The presumed top four seeds are all out before the Elite 8. NWU, Whitman, Amherst and Augustana.

Has there ever been an elite 8 featuring only one host team?  There are gonna be a lot of empty arenas tomorrow.  Nichols based on their fan support today will be practically the home team vs. Swarthmore.  Heck of a showing for a road team, kudos to them.

Speaking of arenas, is that Augustana arena typical for CCIW?  Looked almost like a low-level D1 arena ...

It was a 3-point game with 3:33 left. They hardly cruised.

LeFrak isn't all that big to begin with.  I imagine Nichols will have it filled up.  Swat will travel pretty well, too, I imagine, especially with tomorrow being Saturday.  It's only 5 hours from Philly.

The combination of Wheaton's tough D and Augie's poor shooting made it seem like more than a 3 point game. Since taking the lead with 12 minutes left in the game, Wheaton didn't trail the rest of the way.

Sectional hosts are not as successful as one might expect:

On the mens side for 2018, Augustana is in bold, but Oshkosh went to the final 4, not Augustana.

I'm most likely going to Fort Wayne. I'd like to see Oshkosh, Wheaton, Nichols and Williams.

Swarthmore 69
Nichols 65

Congrats to the Garnet on qualifying for the program's first-ever Final Four.

And congrats to Nichols on a fantastic season that finished just short of Fort Wayne.
