Granted it was a shortened season, but going undefeated on the way to the ARC Championship should warrant a photo and story on D3Hoops.

My apologies. I just found both. My bad. ::)
Reality is for those who lack imagination 😀

In what is "likely" the final basketball poll of the season.  Dubuque finishes 7th in the nation.  The Spartans highest end of season ranking.

It's a great accomplishment even in this Covid bizzaro year.  I thought top 5 was warranted--undefeated is undefeated-- IWU and Marietta lost to teams who finished 3-11 and 2-6 respectively, but so it goes.

Here is a link to a tweet I found interesting.

I'm old enough to remember when a 6'8 kid was slow, plodding, and camped out under the basket to grab rebounds and take passes from the pg to shoot 5 ft bank shots.  Zimmerman is running the floor and draining 3's like he's a shooting guard.  Fun to watch how the game has changed during my lifetime.

It will be interesting to see how the Spartans look by November, as of now here is the probable scenario:

Probable Losses

Patrick Mayfield 6'5 G 1st team all-conference 17.1ppg, 18/34 52.9 3 pt. %  It looks like Mayfield may be headed for a Division I roster as a walk-on. Big loss for UD if this pans out.

Avery Butler 6' 8" C 5.3 ppg 4.9 rpg  5th year senior was solid contributor and shot blocker.

Justin Smith 6' 4" F 3.5 ppg 2.5 rpg

Recruits

Cale Amos 6' 0" G
Alex Coppes 5' 10" G 19.8 ppg 50/40/80 as a senior
Jacob Bonnema 6' 5" F
Jamari Ward 6' 1" G
Ethan Ryan 6' 2" G


Probable Returners

Sam Kilburg 5' 9" SO. G 2nd team all-conference 12.6 ppg 45 assists 40.4 3 pt. % Super crafty point guard, heady passer and showed ability to decision make at a high level and score in the paint at his size in multiple ways. Purists delight.

Peter Ragan 6' 4" 5th year senior F, ARC player of the year, 17.8 ppg 6.1 rpg  41.5 3 pt. %  Showed huge offensive improvement at late stage of career, energy guy, warrior every team loves to have.

Levi Scheuermann 6' 3" JR. F honorable mention all-conference, 9.6 ppg 4.5 rpg 50% 3 pt.%  Strong bodied 5 man who has the ability to stretch defenses with timely shooting.

Brock Simon 6' 5" JR. F ARC defensive player of the year, 5.8 ppg 4.2 rpg   Bouncy athletic, can guard multiple positions, showed skill improvement this year.

Keegan Zimmerman 6' 8" JR. F honorable mention all-conference 6 ppg 3.9 rpg 47.4 3 pt.%  Long stretch 4, can shoot three and run the floor, added strength and weight this year, can play 3 through 5.

Trent Fitzpatrick 5' 10' SR. G 4.6 ppg 44 3 pt.% Valuable back up point guard, another three point shooting weapon you can't leave open.

Hunter Snyder 6' 2" JR. G 3.9 ppg 55.6 3 pt.%  Backup guard, yet another three threat.

Carter Stevens 5' 10" JR. G 2.8 ppg   Saw limited action due to injury, but was 14 mpg guy his freshman year as backup point guard.

Josh Hammer 6'2 F JR. G 1.6 ppg Strong body, good defender and energy guy off the bench.

They took Mayfield off the 20-21 roster page, so I'd suspect he's gone.

Mayfield officially committed to D1 University of Akron.

Word is UD will travel down rt. 61 to open @Augustana.  Spartans vs. Vikings, let's go!
