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.
The University of St. Thomas men’s basketball team pulled off a gritty win Friday afternoon in the Elite Eight round of the NCAA Division III tournament, topping Williams 82-79 in Salem, Va.
The St. Thomas men’s basketball team got off to a fast start and held off a second half comeback in a 68-58 win over Wheaton College Saturday night in the second round of the NCAA Division III Playoffs.
It might be difficult to tell when a team which only has one loss on the season is peaking, but St. Thomas might be doing just that right now. The nation’s No. 1-ranked team in Division III dominated in its NCAA first round game against Aurora University (Illinois) in a 91-62 victory last Saturday night.
There is still plenty to be decided in the MIAC men’s basketball season, but St. Thomas knows one thing: They’re in the playoffs.
The St. Thomas men’s basketball team is playing just like it wants to in its MIAC schedule, and through 11 games, nobody has been able to stop them.
It’s been quite a winter over at the St. Thomas campus in St. Paul as two basketball teams are gearing up for the NCAA Tournament.
