This is the Dragon's first ever time they've reached No. 1 in basketball. They haven't reached a No. 1 ranking in any sport since the football team reached the top of the polls in the early 80s.

Also, fun note, Minnesota North College-Rainy River (formerly Rainy River Community College), which I attended to get my AA, is 12-1 and ranked No. 5 at the NJCAA level. Combined with the Timberwolves at the top of the Western Conference and the Gophers picking up wins, it's turning out to be a pretty good season of hoops.

and what they have 1 senior on the team? they have built themselves a heck of a program up there

nice to see Jacob Jennison from Sauk Centre (went to Colorado State for 2 years) find himself a role over there as well

MIAC Men's race looks like 2 teams on the top (Johnnies & Gusties) with the rest of the conference fighting for the other 4 playoff berths, except the Saints.

Go MAVS! Caught their game against Northern state the other day, they stream them for free (links available through their website). The broadcasters calling this D2 game were legit 100x quality compared to a BTN+ broadcast lmao

Mankato plays Moorhead for the only time this season on Saturday, January 27th in Mankato at 5:30pm. (back end of Women's - Men's double-header)

according to the Mankato website, Adult tickets are $10 each. still appear to be general admission tickets available. that could be a hoot. looks like there will be a video feed as well.

After last night, everyone in the Men's MIAC is at or past the half-way mark. The Johnnies look to be running away with the Regular Season crown and #1 seed. After that there is also a chasm between the Top 6/Playoff bid teams and the bottom 5.

MIAC Men's Standings
St. John's 11-0
Hamline 8-3
Carleton 7-4
Gustavus 7-4
St. Olaf 7-4
Concordia 6-4
Bethel 4-7
Augsburg 4-7
Macalester 3-8
St. Mary's 2-9
St. Scholastica 1-10

The Hammys (5 straight) and Oles (4 straight) on are solid heaters. The Gusties after starting out 6-0 have now dropped 4 of last 5.

The Macs are not helping out the Gophers NET.

Bad year for the St.s

saw a tweet that a Women's/Men's double-header between Augsburg and Gustavus had to be postponed because of a leaking roof at Gus Young Court at Gustavus. more from Mankato TV station -

ST. PETER, Minn. (KEYC) -The Gustavus women’s basketball team was up 24-5 against Augsburg, but the game was called off after 12 minutes of play.

The roof at Gus Young Court was leaking causing water puddles on both sides of the court.

Gustavus did have people wiping the court each transition, but an Augsburg player injured herself from slipping in one of those puddles.

The referees got together with the coaches of both teams and decided it was best to postpone both women’s and men’s games for safety reasons.

The date and time for the rescheduling has not been announced yet.

I made it to my first St Olaf game of the year as they took on Augsburg this past Saturday afternoon. While in playoff position now, I do not like their odds going forward as their best player, Connor Martin, had a cast on his left leg. He had just been named MIAC Player of the Week, prior to the injury.

Anyway, the Auggies controlled most of the game but the Oles with under 8 minutes in the 2nd half gained the lead. They were up 3 with 10 seconds remaining, and opted to not foul. Auggies hit a 3 to Tie with 4 seconds left. Oles did get a good look but the game went to OT.

Oles jumped ahead by 6 early in the extra stanza, but then the Auggies dominated to win by 9. Pretty a much a must win for their playoff aspirations. Very entertaining game. Oles have now dropped 3 in a row.

MIAC Men's Standings as of 1/28/24:

St. John's 13-1
Hamline 10-4
Gustavus 8-4
Carleton 8-5
Concordia 7-6
St. Olaf 7-7
Bethel 6-8
Augsburg 5-8
Macalester 5-9
St. Mary's 4-10
St. Scholastica 1-12

There was also a 15 team indoor track meet going on at the Skogland & Tostrud Center. Parking was at a premium.

in the much-anticipated men's basketball game between MSU-Mankato and MSU-Moorhead, Mankato won it 81-78 on Saturday. going into the game Moorhead was ranked #3 in D2 with Mankato at #5. Mankato is now 19-1 overall, 13-1 in the NSIC; Moorhead is 17-3, 11-3 in conference.

game was tied 33-all at half. then it got funky. Mankato went on a 24-8 run, leading 57-41 with 11:12 left. then Moorhead went on a 24-7 run and Moorhead was up 65-64 with 3:52 left.

Moorhead was up 74-72 with 1:19 left. Mankato hit a "3" to go up 75-74. after that, each team missed shots on their next possession. Moorhead missed a shot with 0:15 left and had to foul. in the last 13 seconds of the game, Mankato went 6 of 8 from the FT line. Moorhead went 4-4 on FT then missed a 3pt attempt to tie with 0:01 on the clock.

Mankato was led by 23 from Justin Eagins and 21 from Malik Willingham. Mavs made 23 of 32 FT. Moorhead was paced by 28 from Ja'Kair Sanchez and 19 from Jacob Beeninga. Dragons were 10-10 on FT.

it was reportedly the 3rd-largest crowd ever for an event at the Taylor Center with over 4,100 fans.

That must have been fun! Went to school in Mankato from 74-77, but unfortunately, have not had the opportunity to see them in the Taylor Center. Mostly because of my aversion to be in Minnesota during winter ever again. :)

Tonight, Carleton accomplished a feat for the first time for either school since 2020 in the Northfield-Goat Series against St Olaf:

They won on their home floor against their rival. The road teams had won the previous 5 contests (courtesy of the program notes).

MIAC leading scorer, Luke Harris paved the way for the Knights with 24 pts in a 84-75 victory.

Kobe Kirk had 44 in a losing effort for the Oles.


Good crowd, especially the Carleton student section all decked out in blue Knights bucket hats, Gilligan style.

There alao was a nice halftime ceremony to honor Carleton's D3 Women's National Cross Country squad.

I made it to the Carleton at Bethel game yesterday which the Knights needed badly in their effort to get the #2 seed while Bethel is trying to secure a playoff bid.

Carleton dominated the 1st half and took a 42-28 lead into the locker room. The Royals chipped away and a took the lead with just under 4 minutes to go. Carleton rallied back and survived a buzzer beating shot to win 81-78.

I have now been to all but 3 Men's MIAC Gyms, but those are really going to take some effort on my part, St Mary's, Concordia & St Scholastica.

How about those rankings?

The Gusties took it to the Auggies last night to create a 3-way tie for 2nd on the Men's side with Carleton, Hamline & Gustavus. Pipers play the Pipers in their season finale.

Tough to figure Augsburg out, they went 2-0 in Northfield and I saw both games. Feels like they have better talent than their conference record indicates.

Pretty young though.

(Transylvania would be #1 if they had the right nickname. Instead of the Pioneers, they should be the Transylvania Vampires)

With how down the Men's MIAC overall is, I think it should make for an interesting Playoff in that even Regular Season Champ St John's will have to win to get to the dance.

Pretty much zero chance of an At Large, given they also lost 3 Non-Conference games.

Here are the MIAC Men's Basketball standings ahead of the Season Finale:

St. John's 18-2 (Regular Season Champion & #1 Seed Clinched)
Carleton 13-6
Hamline 13-6
Gustavus 13-6
Concordia 11-8
Bethel 9-10
-----
St. Olaf 8-11
St. Mary's 7-12
Augsburg 6-13
Macalester 5-14
St. Scholastica 2-17

Schedule 2/17/2024 all Games 3 PM:

Hamline @ Gustavus
St. Scholastica @ Concordia
Bethel @ St Olaf
Augsburg @ Macalester
St. Mary's @ Carleton

By virtue of Carleton sweeping Hamline and splitting with Gustavus, they would clinch the #2 Seed and a Bye by beating St Mary's, by my calculation.

If Carleton loses, then the winner of the Hamline-Gustavus jumps into the #2 spot. Carleton would still get the #3 seed if Gustavus wins, but I am not sure of the 3/4 tiebreaker in the event that Hamline wins.

Concordia is locked into the # 5 seed.

For the 6th and final MIAC Playoff berth Bethel at St Olaf is winner take all, given that it would be a season sweep for the Oles. St Olaf has dropped 3 straight and 7 of the last 8.

Looks like this is Concordia's first trip to the MIAC tourney since 2016 as well.

In other non-division I news, a Minnesota team is in the national NJCAA rankings. Minnesota North College-Rainy River (Formerly Rainy River Community College) is 22-1 and ranked No. 4 in the NJCAA DIII. I went to Rainy River for my AA so it's been great to see them surge in bball.
