    Not much has been said on here about it, most of the talk was about the men playing the early game and the women the late for the first part of the year, but how about the Thursday night games experiment. First week of the season is Thursday/Saturday, and then the last week once again is Thursday/Saturday. Interested to see how that works out.
    By GAAWWWDDD that's the NCC's music!!!!

      Friendly reminder that basketball season officially opened yesterday. Maybe the NSIC will be as ridiculous on the basketball side as it has been on the football side this year.

        Nsic typically one of better d2 basketball conferences in country, expect much the same this season. Can anyone in country ultimately compete with Northwest Missouri…we will soon find out.

              Absolutely they can. The national championship game was in Wachs Arena last year. Washburn and NSU were way better opponents than anything seen at the Elite 8.

                Oh please, on the day of their ring presentations at night, I'm sure that they will spend the afternoon getting sized for their 2021-2022 championship rings. As well they should. Just because 2 other teams in the region may be better than most of the rest of the country doesn't mean squat. NW is playing chess, while the rest of us are playing checkers. And some of us, my club included. are playing tiddly-winks.

                  I'd probably feel that way too if Hawkins was back. I think without him in the fold they are still the favorite but not a "no doubt, size up their 21-22 championship rings" favorite.

                      I think your guard play overcomes a lot of things. You will miss Hawkins (I have heard he has been one of Creighton’s best players in the preseason) but Hudgins, Bernard and Jackson will cover up other deficiencies. Hawkins defensively might be the toughest thing to overcome. His steals and rebounding was tremendous. However, Alexander is the “X” factor. If he plays like he did late I don’t think you will miss a beat.

                          This is also "a thing" at Wayne this year, it appears. Looks like they are doing the first several conference weekends this way, but then switching to the traditional schedule in mid-January. Was this a league-wide decision? I'm, um...unenthused, especially for the early Friday starts. Saturday games are basically afternoon affairs either way.

                            Agree. I'm not saying they won't have another great year. The question was "can anyone compete with NW?". The answer is- Absolutely and last year proved it. Yes, I realize the other posters are being sarcastic. I believe the biggest challenges for the winner of this region will come from this region. The quality of teams at the Elite 8 was nowhere near the quality in our own region. Recent history bears that out- 5 out of the last 7 champions have come from this region and one of those years the region didn't win it we had the runner-up that lost in the championship. I don't expect it to change this year but we will see.

                              I agree. Don’t get me wrong. I think the Bods can compete and they made some steps last year. We will see this year but until someone else wins the conf then maybe we can look at someone else. The Hawkins loss is huge but the Bearcats have always had someone else step up after a big loss. Witthus for Ndow and Hawkins for Witthus. Hudgins for Pitts and on and on. I think the Bods might have been the 2nd best team in the country last year. Could anyone else have gone into maryville and won twice last year? I don’t think so including Northern State. So I agree the National Championship runs thru the Central Region and ultimately thru the MIAA in 2021-22.

                                Youre in nsic territory now…NW Missouri has easily earned our nsic respect. Washburn was very good last year, but Washburn was not as good as Northern State last year. As an aside, Not so sure NSU doesn’t beat NW Missouri 7 out of 10 last year…even though NW Missouri pulled it out when it mattered most. No riding NW Missouri coattails for Washburn or any other MIAA schools…The National Championship runs through NW Missouri alone in 2021-2022, but good effort nonetheless…
