Can You Lend Us An Assist?

It's been about 6 years of running CWOSSABasketball.com, and it's time for some changes -- in a positive way. With some additional time to dedicate to the site this year, there's a few things I'm looking at accomplishing and improving during the 2015-16 season. Of course, considering the expenses associated with the following, I'll need your help along the way:

#CWOSSARoadTrip: Stretching from Delhi through to Wiarton, my goal for this season is to visit EVERY CWOSSA school that fields a basketball team (keeping in mind there's 60 or so!) for at least one game during the 2015-16 (girls or boys) season. Along with reporting on the game that I see that day, I also hope to include additional features or information about a student, the school itself, or the surrounding area (not necessarily basketball related). Some of the funds raised will be used to offset the expenses associated with this massive project.

OFSAA Coverage: Helping to defray the cost of attending the OFSAA championships (boys and girls) in Windsor this coming year, and reporting on things from a CWOSSA-specific perspective.

Photos/Videos/Highlights: Hiring an individual (and/or company) to provide game highlight videos that will be posted on the website. My goal is to start with major games (championships, etc.) and have highlights of other games if funding allows.

Website Improvements: Although the blogger platform is functional, I would like to switch to a more professional look. Any funds left over after the first several items will be put towards this purpose.

Whether you can spare $2, $5, or $25, any donation is appreciated to help continue the promotion of CWOSSA Student Athletes. Please take a look at the Indiegogo Crowdfunding link for CWOSSABasketball.com here, and thanks in advance for your support!

Cvrkalj, Lehigh Get To Face Duke in NCAA Tournament "Second Round"

Playing Duke in the NCAA Tournament is becoming a regular occurrence for former CWOSSA players.

For the third time in 5 years, a CWOSSA alum will suit up on the opposite side of the Duke Blue Devils in the NCAA men's basketball tournament.

Stefan Cvrkalj and Lehigh were awarded the #15 seed, and will face #2 Duke in South Region action on Friday in Greensboro, NC.  This comes three years after Jaan Montgomery and his Binghamton Bearcats dropped an 86-62 decision in similar circumstances; the Bearcats were also a #15 seed and the game was played at Greensboro Coliseum.

Of course, it's also the 4-year anniversary (has it been that long?) of Jon House and the Belmont Bruins (a #15 seed in 2008) nearly pulling a stunning upset of Duke --- it took a Gerald Henderson coast-to-coast drive to allow Duke to pull out the 71-70 victory (House is #13 on Belmont):

Here are the stat lines for the former CWOSSA players in tournament games against Duke:

Montgomery (SR in 09) - 5 Min, 0-0 FG, 0-0 FT, 1 Reb, 0 Ast - 0 Pts.

House (FR in 08) - 12 Min, 1-2 FG, 2-2 FT, 3 Reb, 1 Ast - 4 Pts.
