2016-17 BIG East Preview

Big East Preview…

Big East always has a quality column of representations in the NCAA tournament, and this year will NOT be any different.

VAC365-TPOS

Building Men & Women via Athletics
Villanova is the reigning national champ. Xavier could actually be better this season than it was last. Georgetown is set for a huge rebound year, and Creighton’s got two of the six or seven most valuable players in the league. At the bottom, even DePaul and St. John’s are set up to be stronger than a year ago. Even teams like Providence and Marquette, which lost first-round draft picks and won’t be as strong, still set up to be threats to crack the top half of the conference.

In fact just because in our prediction we have DePaul and St. John low, they will be very tough to play on the hardwood for many top-tier teams.

2016-17 BIG Ten Preview

BIG TEN Basketball Preview…

We are predicting that the Big Ten will experience a “changing of the guard” in 2016-17.

VAC365-TPOS

The crispness of the fall air, the time change (fall back), and the squeak of basketball sneakers in gymnasiums across the country can only mean ONE thing – basketball is back! And the official start for the march to March Madness has started.

bigten-bball

Here’s our look at the Big Ten:

As of right now, Wisconsin seems to have the greatest advantage. The Badgers return every key player from a team that regrouped under new coach Greg Gard to go 12–6 in Big Ten play. Meanwhile, teams like Michigan State, Indiana and Purdue will look for role players and secondary scorers to take the next step.

1. Wisconsin

Five starters return, including Nigel Hayes and Bronson Koenig — key players with Final Four experience.

 

2. MichiganState

Tom Izzo has rarely relied on freshmen, but he will do so this season with Miles Bridges and Joshua Langford heading his best recruiting class.

3. indianabb-logo

If Pitt transfer Josh Newkirk delivers at point guard and OG Anunoby takes the next step, the Hoosiers could win the Big Ten title again.

4. purduebb-logo

Getting Vince Edwards and Caleb Swanigan to return was critical, but Matt Painter’s team won’t contend unless it finds a high-caliber point guard.

5. Michigan

Keeping Derrick Walton healthy for the entire season is critical for the Wolverines, who have a nice first five but little experienced depth.

6. marylandbb-logo

Melo Trimble is back for his third tour at Maryland. He will have to play like the league’s best point guard as the Terps try to replace four starters.

7. OhioState

Transfers wiped out most of Thad Matta’s sophomore class, so depth and the maturity of point guard JaQuan Lyle are the primary issues.

8. pennstate-bb

With the addition of Pat Chambers’ best freshman class, the Nittany Lions will be able to win with talent as well as grit.

9. Iowa
The loss of four starters plus memories of the Hawkeyes’ struggles down the stretch last season make Iowa the Big Ten’s biggest mystery.

10. northwesternbb

Chris Collins has upgraded the talent every year, and he has the point guard (Bryant McIntosh) to compete.

11. illinois-bball

Losing 19 games and facing a string of off-the-court issues have Illini fans wondering if John Groce can regain momentum.

12. minnesotabb
Richard Pitino has failed to make the NCAA Tournament for three seasons and needs to impress a new athletic director.

13. nebraska2

Losing Andrew White in late June was major setback that coach Tim Miles did not expect.

14. rutgersbb

2016 IHSA 2nd Round Playoffs

2nd Round of the State playoffs…

Vikings shocked by Glenbard West

Top ranked Homewood-Flossmoor Vikings were totally shocked in the loss against Glenbard West 28-21.

In short, it was the turnovers…. Vikings (10-1) trailed 7-0 before producing an eight-play, 80-yard drive that resulted in a 6-yard touchdown run by quarterback Bryant Wright on the first play of the second quarter. Brendan Hurley added the first of three point-after kicks to force a 7-7 tie. Wright completed 17 of 22 passes for 187 yards and also rushed for 69 yards on 18 carries.

The Vikings were in position to take the lead at the end of the second quarter, driving to the Glenbard West 12 but Jack Campanella stepped in front of a pass by Wright with 1:12 left before halftime. It was Bryant’s first interception. This turnover took some air out of the Vikings’ balloon. Then the Hilltoppers scored on the opening kickoff of the second half as Dionte Moorehead raced 82 yards for the TD. It gave the Hilltoppers a 14-7 lead just 14 seconds into the second half.

“There were two big plays that really changed the game,” H-F coach Craig Buzea said. “The turnover before the half and the kickoff to start the second half. We didn’t plan on kicking the ball in the middle of the field.”

Try as they might, the Vikings never recovered from this. Wright scored from short-yardage with 10:35 left in the fourth quarter pulled the Vikings within 21-14.

Glenbard West, however, extended its lead on its ensuing possession. Ryan Diver scooted in from 6 yards to make it 28-14. A 5-foot-10, 175-pound junior running back, Diver finished with 33 carries for 171 yards.

Wright hooked up with Dylan Duplessis on a 28-yard TD pass with 19.6 left in the game that trimmed the deficit to 28-21 and gave Vikings fans hope. The Hilltoppers, though, recovered H-F’s onside kick.

It was the first time all season the Vikings were held below 27 points.

After the game, H-F wide receiver and Northern Illinois recruit, Tyrice Richie, just shook his head in disbelief.

“We didn’t turn the ball over hardly at all this season,” said Richie, a Northern Illinois recruit. “I don’t know how to explain it.”

The defending 7A state champion Hilltoppers (9-2) advance to play the Edwardsville-Oswego winner in the 8A quarterfinals.

LW Central loses…

The Knights usually plays a solid ground game and ball-control offense, but the Knights received a taste of their own medicine Friday night in the second round of the Class 7A playoffs against quarterback Asher O’Hara and Rolling Meadows. O’Hara kept the chains moving and ran for two touchdowns as Rolling Meadows wore down Lincoln-Way Central for a 23-13 victory in New Lenox.

Rolling Meadows (11-0) moves on to next weekend’s state quarterfinals and will face the winner of Saturday’s game between Normal (9-1) and Benet (8-2).

For the Knights (7-4), a few splashy plays gave them a 13-9 lead going into halftime, but their ground game never quite got into gear.

“Our calling card all year has been able to run the ball,” Central coach Jeremy Cordell said. “We had some moments, but (Rolling Meadows) did a nice job adjusting and made some plays, and the bottom line is you’ve got to finish to the whistle if you’re going to run the ball.”

The Knights led 6-3 after Zack Stoklosa hit Matt Pollack on a halfback pass for a 53-yard TD. Rolling Meadows responded with a 3-yard TD run from O’Hara, but the Knights retook the lead before halftime thanks to a 1-yard TD from quarterback Hunter Campbell.
