Division III men's basketball doesn't get as much media attention as say... professional goat roping but hey, that's alright, we get up to minute news stories on the condition of Josh Heytvelt's ankle. That's important stuff.
Now if you're able to pull your head out of your Gonzaga induced you-know-what, there's a pretty darn basketball team playing down the road in the Whitworth Pirates.
Currently 13-3, the Pirates don't have a single play under 6-0, which is more than you can say for the Eastern Washington Eagles (sorry Benny), and are averaging over 80 points per game.
Their latest outing? Well they crushed Whitman 101-70. Hoooot dog.
So if you can't get tickets to the Zags game (which you cant) and you don't want to watch another team leave the NCAA Tournament prematurely (you know this will happen) then head up to Whitworth's campus on Feb. 6 when they take on Willamette. Full Schedule.
More to come next week!
