The Hiram College men’s basketball team has been named the Division III Team of the Week by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), after back to back victories against nationally-ranked Ohio Wesleyan, 88-79, and Kenyon, 99-77.
Teams up for NABC Team of the Week honors were nominated by their respective conferences, before being voted on by the NABC leadership. Only one team is selected per week from each of five levels of collegiate basketball (Division I, II, III, NAIA, and Junior College). This week, Hiram joins The University of Oklahoma (DI), The University of Wisconsin-Parkside (DII), Wayland Baptist University (NAIA) and Kirkwood Community College (NJCAA).
The Terriers 2-0 conference record last week brings them to 10-5 overall and 6-2 in conference play. Hiram is currently tied with No. 24 Ohio Wesleyan for second place in the North Coast Athletic Conference standings.
Last week, Hiram scored the final 10 points of the game against Ohio Wesleyan to collect the nine-point win, while the 99 points against the Lords was the most points scored against a conference opponent since scoring 120 against Denison in 2007. The Terriers were paced by Senior Kelvin Jones who posted his eighth and ninth double-doubles of the year while shooting over 70 percent from the field. He recorded 21 points and 14 rebounds against Ohio Wesleyan, before registering 19 points and 10 boards against Kenyon.  For his efforts, Jones was named the NCAC Player of the Week.
Currently, the Terriers have won eight of their previous nine outings. Hiram leads the conference in blocked shots per game, averaging 5.1 and currently ranks second in steals per contest (7.5). Their 79.1 points per night currently ranks third in the league, while they also sit third in scoring margin.
Hiram will be back in action on Wednesday, January 17, as they travel to Granville, Ohio to take on the Big Red of Denison University. The game is scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. start.

Kristina Corona, previously a head coach at University of Dallas and Austin College and an assistant at Florida Southern, has been named DePauw head women’s soccer coach.

“We are excited to welcome Kristina to DePauw and to our athletics staff,” said Stevie Baker-Watson, DePauw Associate Vice President for Campus Wellness and Theodore Katula Director of Athletics.

“The candidate pool was very talented and Kristina showed that she was very passionate about soccer and is thrilled to be working with students that strive for excellence both in the classroom and on the field. Kristina’s experience as a head coach at both Dallas and Austin give her great experience to take on the role at DePauw.”

Corona, a 2009 Tulsa University graduate, served as head coach at Dallas for three seasons with a 30-26-4 record. Prior to her arrival, the Crusaders had won a combined seven games in the previous three seasons. Conrona’s teams finished 7-11-1, 11-7-2 and 12-8-1. The second winningest coach in program history, Corona was named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Coach of the Year in 2012.

MLB announces Cleveland Indians will drop ‘Chief Wahoo’ logo from uniforms starting in 2019

 

Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr. announced today that the Cleveland Indians will remove the “Chief Wahoo” logo from their uniforms, effective with the 2019 season. The announcement comes following thoughtful and productive discussions between Major League Baseball and the Indians.

“Major League Baseball is committed to building a culture of diversity and inclusion throughout the game,” said Commissioner Manfred. “Over the past year, we encouraged dialogue with the Indians organization about the Club’s use of the Chief Wahoo logo. During our constructive conversations, Paul Dolan made clear that there are fans who have a longstanding attachment to the logo and its place in the history of the team. Nonetheless, the club ultimately agreed with my position that the logo is no longer appropriate for on-field use in Major League Baseball, and I appreciate Mr. Dolan’s acknowledgement that removing it from the on-field uniform by the start of the 2019 season is the right course.”

“We have consistently maintained that we are cognizant and sensitive to both sides of the discussion,” said Cleveland Indians owner Paul Dolan. “While we recognize many of our fans have a longstanding attachment to Chief Wahoo, I’m ultimately in agreement with Commissioner Manfred’s desire to remove the logo from our uniforms in 2019.”
