Snowball Shootout Season 3
Championship Match- Minnesota vs. Upstate
at RPI (59-56)
at St. Olaf (81-70)
St. Thomas at Skidmore
Chicago at Carleton
St. Scholastica at Hamilton
at Augsburg (59-49)
Macalester at Case Western
HWS at St. Mary's
at NYU (69-59)
Upstate was nearly dethroned for the first time in Shootout history...but they ended up squeaking by Minnesota in the championship match. Upstate wins 5-4.
However, in the battle of the presumptive favorites for the Wooden D3 Championship, Hamline defeated RPI. So, in some ways, Minnesota can still be considered a winner here.
Consolation Match- Midwest vs. Michigan
at MBBC (81-76)
Calvin at St. Norbert
Lake Forest at Hope
at Carroll (64-50)
at Finlandia (100-92)
Adrian at Lawrence (never scheduled)
Depauw at Rockford (never scheduled)
at Grinnell (54-52)
Illinois at Alma (never scheduled)
Due to scheduling errors, only 6 games were played in the consolation match. After six games, we have a 3-3 tie.
An idea was thrown out to use total points as a tiebreaker, and that seems fair to me. So we'll go with that.
So, next year will be a repeat of our last season's Shootout:
- Upstate vs. Michigan in the Championship Match
- Minnesota vs. Midwest in the Consolation Match.
Thanks again to all for participating!
