CLEVELAND, OH — Three North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) men’s basketball players eclipsed the 1,000-point plateau in league action on Wednesday evening. Denison senior Larry Farmer (Gurnee, IL/Warren Twp.) reached the milestone in the Big Red’s 70-56 victory over Oberlin, and is now the 19th player in DU history to reach the mark. Wittenberg senior Clayton Black (Lancaster, OH/Lancaster) and DePauw senior Sean Haseley (Zionsville, IN/Zionsville) also reached the milestone on the same court last evening. Black led Wittenberg to the 66-62 victory over DePauw with 19 points to become the 32nd player in Wittenberg history to surpass 1,000 points, while Haseley led DePauw with 14 points, becoming the 24th player in DPU history to reach 1,000 points.

Most of us who cover the Ohio State Buckeyes on a regular basis, were sitting in the press box during Saturday’s 27-22 win over the Toledo Rockets wandering several things aloud, on Twitter and Facebook.

What if Luke Fickell loses this game and why isn’t he playing Braxton Miller when it was obvious Joe Bauserman was struggling badly at times.

If Toledo had won that game, it would’ve been the first time in 90 years that an in-state opponent would’ve beaten the Buckeyes. Believe it or not, Oberlin won in 1921.

A loss like this would not look good when Coach Fickell and Gene Smith get together at the end of the season to decide whether he keeps the job or not.

Toledo is a good football team, but they are not Wisconsin, Miami of Florida, Nebraska or Michigan.

The first-year head coach also could not be happy with his special teams inconsistent play. Toledo blocking a punt to set up its first TD and Drew Basil missing two field goals, one that counted and one that was nullified due to a penalty.

In his postgame press conference with the media, Fickell talked about Carlos Hyde, the blocked punt, Chris Fields’ 69-yard punt return for a TD, Philly Brown, Rod Smith’s fumbling and the state of the team after two games.


North Coast Athletic Conference coaches select Wittenberg as Preseason Favorite in Football

Wittenberg University has been selected as the preseason favorite in balloting by NCAC football coaches for the 27th annual preseason football poll.

The Tigers, who ran the table with a perfect 10-0 regular season record and earned two NCAA Tournament wins last season, collected eight of nine first-place votes from the coaches to total 79 points. Last season’s Number 2 team, Wabash, was close behind with a total of 71 points. The Little Giants collected one first place vote and last won a North Coast title in 2008. Allegheny, which went 5-2 in conference play in 2009, had 63 points to finish third in the poll, while Wooster (50) and Ohio Wesleyan (41) earned fourth and fifth place respectively. Denison with 32, Kenyon (30), Oberlin garnering 19 and Hiram picking up 14 points rounded out the bottom four slots in the poll.

Wittenberg Tigers (WU)

Wittenberg is entering its 15th season under head coach Joe Fincham. Fincham has been very successful at the helm with a record of 126-30 with the Tigers including a mark of 85-14 in North Coast Athletic Conference games. The Tigers, who were eliminated from the 2009 NCAA Playoffs by eventual National Champion Wisconsin-Whitewater, are led by returning NCAC and NCAA Division III Defensive Player of the year Eddie Vallery (South Solon, Oh/Madison Plains H.S.). A senior defensive end, Vallery led the nation in sacks (16.5) as a junior.

The 2010 season opens on Saturday, September 4. NCAC play begins Saturday, September 11.
