I've decided to leave behind the Northwest Conference to make my fortunes in D2, but I still have a soft spot for Whitworth
and would like to see them picked up.
They return three starters from a team that went on a miracle Sweet Sixteen run as a 16-seed (eventually dropping in overtime to 5-seeded Mary Washington), including their best player in Dean Mullen
, who is on pace to finish in the top three all-time in scoring.
The conference was third in Naismith D3 RPI last year and has some fantastic coaches. Last year saw six teams make the NT, four make the Sweet Sixteen, and three make the Elite Eight, so there will be plenty of bonus cash to fill the five open scholarships.
And I do have some information about the caps of some current players, so if you pick them up and want those, let me know.
