    Winner gets absolutely nothing.


    On Jan. 24, 2022, IUP was swept in Johnstown.

    When was the last time the IUP men and women were swept in basketball?
    Wow, good one. I couldn’t begin to name the date, but I’ll take a stab at the team that did it and say it was Cal. It seems to me they’ve been the one with the solid enough men’s and women’s programs to pull it off. I’ll guess it was the season before the women made the Final Four?

    As soon as they get healthy ... down goes another.

    Polce left and will be out at least a week.

    Dillard's minutes will spike and Radford will be elevated.

    I hope Kyle recovers quickly. He's a big piece of the puzzle.

    Batt and Magestro didn't waive goodbye today like last game. Maybe their arms hurt.

    Demo looked like Demo again. Awesome to see.

    It's incredible that this squad only has one senior on it. That's remarkable. I'm not sure that's been said enough. This has been, within reason, a weird season. You've had a lot of injuries. You had the one major injury. You've had a revolving door of starting lineups. You had Tommy's "Operation Shutdown." It makes you wonder what this team looks like if they did not lose Shawndale or have the other injuries.
    The biggest change post-Shawndale was the ability of the SRP (Shawndale Replacement Project) to score.

    The first, I'd say, 7-8 games after the injury they mostly looked like deer in the headlights with the ball in their hand. Often times, Joe was playing 4 on 5 at that end.

    In late January, that started to change. Dillard started to go off. Polce started draining treys. It took KJ longer but he's playing much better.

    And, the item that elevated the whole season, was Tomiwa's emergence. He gives them a post defender that they haven't had in years. Big. Fast. Strong. Attitude.

    Don't forget Radford missed 11 games along with Demo. They made it through the gauntlet -- and the West was a gauntlet -- with a very short bench for a month stretch. Consider the West has 4 of the Top 6 in the latest regional ranking.

    The body size condoms comment reminded me of The Naked Gun movie that included a scene with those, LOL. As for masks at KCAC, I already saw a decline in mask wearing at the Clarion game. You can bet with this announcement you’ll see a bigger drop today. At this point I really don’t care what other people do. I’ll wear mine until they (IUP) say we don’t have to. To be honest, I forget it’s even on after a couple minutes. I just want to watch a good basketball game and not have the place shut down again.

    It was nice to see Tommy D. playing well the other night. If they can get 10-12 productive minutes out of him that’s a huge lift. We’ve been hard on him here but I was happy for the kid. For some reason I feel like he’s going to hit a big shot or make a critical play to help IUP advance in the post-season. He’ll be IUP’s only senior recognized today and who would have thought when he first arrived on campus that he’d be finishing his career as a backup? This has evolved into a very deep team, which is a positive side effect of Shawndale’s injury. As odd as it sounds, IUP will be better next year because of it, while still having an outstanding chance of making the Elite 8 this year. It hasn’t always been pretty, but this is a very good, and deep, basketball team.

    I didn't want to bring it up, but, yes, the Clarion game had a dramatic decline in masks.

    I'd guess the first game (Seton Hill) was 85-90% compliance. Clarion, at best, was 60%.

    Today, my guess, will back to 20% max. With yesterday's announcement it could be worse.
    Not good!

    Only thing to add here is Demo must play better defense! They gave up way to many easy buckets when he was out there against Clarion! I’d explain his issues here but the list is to long! I’m sure Joe is all over it but it’s hard to teach when you don’t practice! Just watch the difference between Tomiwa/Ethan vs Demo. It’s a glaring difference.

    Mercyhurst lifted its mask requirement.
