Every football coach will tell you they are excited about a new class of incoming players, it’s up to everyone else to determine how legitimate that excitement is. Glenn Caruso was downright giddy when talking about his 2013 recruiting class that will arrive on the St. Thomas campus this fall.
There was nobody more frustrated by last week’s foot-plus of snow in southern Minnesota than the state’s spring prep athletes.
He was the heart and soul of the St. Thomas defense in a run to the NCAA Championship game last season. Now Ayo Idowu is at least getting a chance, even if temporary, to take his game to the next level.
Two weeks have passed since the college basketball season, and St. Thomas coach John Tauer is still kicking himself at how the year ended despite one of the most successful seasons in history of the program.
It’s the worst fear of any high school athlete who competes in a spring sport in Minnesota: the sight of rain or snow.
“Hey kid, you’re going to the show…” That’s the sentence every aspiring baseball player wants to hear.
It’s one of the most unique times there’s ever been for boys high school basketball in Minnesota. The state has had plenty of Division I recruits before, and more emerge every year.
This week was spring break at the University of St. Thomas, and men’s basketball coach John Tauer said half-jokingly he’s miserable. It’s got nothing to do with school, but rather that he’s not preparing to play for a national championship.
When the clock hit zero in the Class 4A title game Saturday night, the emotion that spilled out onto the court said it all.
The St. Thomas men’s basketball team left Wednesday morning for the Elite Eight in Salem, Va., after narrowly beating Calvin College 63-62 in the NCAA Division III Sweet 16 last Saturday night.
It feels like March Madness just got started, but it’s wrapping up on the high school level this week with the State Boys Basketball Tournament.
Saturday night promises to be both exciting and bittersweet for the St. Thomas men’s basketball team. The Tommies (28-1), ranked No. 1 in Division III, host No. 12-ranked Calvin College (Michigan) in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament.
Unless you’re one of the few teams to end a season with a state championship, there’s nothing like the feeling of winning a section title and earning that coveted trip to state.
It looks to be an exciting week at the Target Center as the top girls basketball players and teams converge on downtown Minneapolis for the annual state tournament.
The road to a championship is never an easy one, and the St. Thomas basketball team isn’t expecting an easy match-up when it faces Wheaton College Saturday night.
