COLLEGE BASEBALL: NAIA CONFERENCE TOURNAMENTS ARE UNDERWAY!

ius_logoThe Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference threw out the first pitch yesterday in postseason play for the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics). The ever- dangerous INDIANA UNIVERSITY- SOUTHEAST GRENADIERS came in as the 3 seeds and opened up the proverbial can of whupass on the 6th seeded ALICE LLOYD COLLEGE EAGLES. The college sports gods always smile when a team with an overused name like Eagles, Tigers, Bulldogs or Wildcats gets routed and the Grenadiers were happy to oblige!

IUS led 4-1 after the 1st Inning and 7-1 after the 2nd. The Grenadiers then went on to put up 4, 1 and 3 runs respectively in the 7th, 8th and 9th Innings on their way to an impressive FIFTEEN to ONE humilation of the Eagles. Mason Lingafelter got the win as IUS moves on to the next round.   Continue reading

COLLEGE BASKETBALL CONFERENCE TOURNAMENTS CONTINUE

February Frenzy continues as the NAIA’s Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference joined in the fun last night by tipping off their conference tournament.

ius_logoThe top-seeded INDIANA UNIVERSITY SOUTHEAST GRENADIERS got more than they bargained for from their First Round opponents the 8th seeded POINT PARK UNIVERSITY PIONEERS. The game’s Halftime tie of 42-42 off a 3-point buzzer beater from the Pioneers was just one of 12 ties and 19 lead changes throughout the game. Both teams stayed within 4 points of each other for virtually all of the 2nd Half until clutch Free-Throws from the Grenadiers at last gave them a 99-94 victory. For IUS Cameron Mitchell led the scoring with 22 points followed closely by Aishon White with 21 and Jake Simpson with 20. In defeat Gabe McNeal notched 30 points for the Pioneers.   

Berea MountaineersThe BEREA COLLEGE MOUNTAINEERS came into the conference tournament as the 5 seeds but managed the upset of the tourney so far by toppling the 2nd seeded ASBURY UNIVERSITY EAGLES. Ironically the Eagles had defeated the Mountaineers in both of their regular season games but it will be Berea moving on to the semifinals. Asbury scored the first points of the game but trailed 35-31 by the break and played from behind the entire 2nd Half. The Mountaineers weathered several comeback attempts by the Eagles and prevailed by a final score of Continue reading
