Hanover men prepare for this weekend's conference tournament
By: Hanover College Athletics, 2/23/17

The No. 16 Hanover College men’s basketball team will host the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Tournament this weekend, as they search for the season sweep in conference titles and the league’s automatic bid into the NCAA National Tournament.

Hanover won the HCAC regular season crown by posting a 16-2 record in conference play. The Panthers are 21-3 overall this season and 8-2 at home, but both home losses came to possible HCAC Tournament opponents in Rose-Hulman and Mount St. Joseph.

With its 21-3 overall record, the Blue and Red have posted one of the top five seasons, in terms of least amount of losses, since the end of World War II. Under former head coach Mike Beitzel, the Panthers posted back-to-back seasons in the early 2000’s with just two losses, while legendary HC coach John Collier had a team in the 1940’s and another in the 1960’s post four-loss seasons.

The Panthers are hosting the HCAC Tournament for the first time since the 2004-05 season, which was also the last time HC won the conference regular season title. The 04-05 campaign capped a four-year run of hosting the HCAC Tournament, the last three of which Hanover won the championship. Hanover has won seven consecutive HCAC Tournament games at home when hosting the final four and championship.

Junior Wes McKinney (Batesville, Ind.) has been the most consistent player for HC this season, as he leads the team in scoring, 18.2, and rebounding per game, 8.5. McKinney was also named the HCAC’s final Player of the Week this past Monday, after he recorded his conference-leading 9th and 10th double-double of the season, averaging 17.0 points and 11.0 rebounds per game last week.

Senior Corey Muchmore (Cincinnati, Ohio) will have at least one more chance of playing in Collier Arena, and possibly more if the Panthers advance past the semifinal round on Saturday. Muchmore is having his best statistical season, averaging 13.5 points and 6.4 rebounds per contest.

The senior is also a big reason why the Panthers are the top field goal shooting team in the country. Muchmore is shooting close to 64 percent from the floor, ranking in the top 15 in the NCAA. Hanover has three players among the top 200 nationally in field goal percentage, including Muchmore, McKinney, and sophomore Cam Fails (Mason, Ohio). As a team, HC is shooting 51.9 percent from the field, which leads all of NCAA Division III and is among the top eight in all three NCAA divisions combined.

The HCAC Tournament will open with a pair of first round games, beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 24. Hanover and the No. 2 seed, MSJ, will begin their tournament runs in the semifinal round on Saturday, with the championship set for 2 p.m. on Sunday. All tournament games will be played inside Collier Arena.

Reds' Dilson Herrera hampered by shoulder inflammation
By: Associated Press, 2/24/17

Dilson Herrera has inflammation in his right shoulder and will not throw for a couple days, taking the Colombian infielder out of the World Baseball Classic and hurting his chances for making the Cincinnati Reds.
Herrera, who turns 23 next Friday, also experienced shoulder soreness for parts of last season, including during spring training. He said it started bothering him again about a week ago.
The Reds acquired Herrera when they traded Jay Bruce to the New York Mets last summer.
Reds manager Bryan Price said Herrera probably won't throw again until Monday or Tuesday.
Herrera spent last season in the minors, hitting .274 with 15 homers and 64 RBIs in 110 games with Triple-A Las Vegas and Louisville. He is a .215 hitter in 49 career major league games, all with the Mets.

Zags still top team in country, Louisville stays in top ten
By: Rob Connett, 2/20/17

The lone undefeated team in Division I remains the top team in the country. Gonzaga (28-0) remains No. 1 in this week's new Associated Press Top 25 poll.
In fact, the top three teams remain the same, with Villanova staying at No. 2 and Kansas remaining No. 3.
Arizona and UCLA, who play each other this weekend, round out the top five. Oregon, Louisville, North Carolina, Baylor and Duke complete this week's top ten.
Kentucky moves up two spots to 11th, Purdue moves up to 14th, Cincinnati 15th, Notre Dame 21st and Butler 22nd.
