Whitworth, the morning after

I am still in Janesville, Wisconsin, with the Whitworth basketball team, which lost last night in the third round of the NCAA Division III tournament. Here is my story on the game, which ended in dramatic and controversial fashion.

Even the next morning, I couldn't shake the feeling that Whitworth had this one taken away.

Whits are hungry for Marlin

I'm in Janesville, Wisconsin, to cover the Whitworth Pirates in the Division III Sweet 16 in nearby Whitewater. Here's a link to my preview of the Pirates' game against Virginia Wesleyan, and a previous story on the role of Whitworth's bench.

I arrived at 2 a.m., but got up this morning just in time to witness a possible NCAA record for most basketball players crammed into one Holiday Inn continental breakfast room.

Whitworth stays well rested, unbeaten

Whitworth's unbeaten and No. 2-ranked men's basketball team rolled over Linfield 70-43 at Whitworth Fieldhouse Friday night, using the balanced scoring of David Riley, Mike Taylor and Wade Gebber, and a strong defensive effort K.C. Wiser, the Northwest Conference's leading scorer, to keep its record unblemished.

Whitworth up big at halftime

Senior guard Michael Taylor scored 16 first-half points and Whitworth's suffocating man-to-man defensive pressure held Linfield to 23.1 percent shooting (6-for-26) as the No. 2-ranked Pirates rolled to a 35-16 halftime lead over their Northwest Conference rivals at Whitworth Fieldhouse on Friday night.

David Riley had 11 points for the Bucs, who built their big lead at intermission despite shooting an uncharateristically low 37.5 percent (6-for-16) from 3-point range.

Nobody on Linfield's roster had more than four points in the first half.
