Wow. MNU started off the game down 0-11 but came back and laid a beat-down on Mayville State, outscoring them 47-29 in the second period. Final score: 78-60.
That big banner will look real nice hanging in the Cook Center. Congrats to tournament MVP Adam Hepker. He’s probably going to need to sit in the ice tub for a while.
I exchanged emails yesterday with David Boyce, the Kansas City Star reporter that’s been following the Pioneers. Here’s something cool he said:
Rocky keeps getting better as a coach. He’s put together an amazing NAIA team this year, one that I think is the best in Kansas City. In a tournament at neutral site, I think MidAmerica would come out on top against UMKC, Rockhurst, Park, Avila and William Jewell.
I especially like that part about Jewell.
