Top 10 Showdown + Anderson’s Owen Handy

Can you believe we're down to the last week of the season? Still plenty to sort out in the Great Lakes as conference races are coming down to the wire. #3 Marietta put one hand on the OAC championship after knocking off #3 John Carroll who picked up their second straight loss. With one conference beginning to sort itself out the MIAA, HCAC, and NCAC races continue to be deadlocked with two games to go. Will any of those 6 teams blink as favorites this week? Joining me on the Coach's Corner this week out of the Heartland Conference is Anderson head coach Owen Handy (47:00). We went in depth into the talented young team he has and their journey through a wacky Heartland race this year. Coach Handy and I also discussed his journey from Hope crazed Holland, MI to Wheaton College and how the people along the way led him to the head coaching job at Anderson. With only two weeks left before selection Monday, I broke down regional rankings, teams to consider for Pool C status, updated RPI numbers (courtesy of Matt Snyder) and what they all mean for contending teams in the Great Lakes. All that and more in another 100 minutes of Great Lakes talk!
