Augie averaged 1200 at home this year. That is getting it done.

The Vikes will be hosting Wheaton on Friday.

D3 championship this year will be at one of the homes of the Mastodons, War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne.

Great program. They lost to a decent Illinois State team by 8 in an exhibition game. 3 regular season losses, first to Loras in Dubuque by one and twice to North Central, who just lost to Loras in the Tourney.
Think Purple...lets think Gold as in Championships!!!
