Predictions are below the schedule.
I will be traveling today on a family matter and suspect I’ll miss most of these matches. Use the links for updates!
Should have gone with my gut. DePauw with the upset.
Games are over for the night. I got to watch none of it. The day I move from my house is the day they carry me out on a slab.

All of the teams going to heaven are playing today as this is the only regional starting early to avoid playing on Sunday. Please put in a good word for me…I’ll need it.
Give me Wittenberg over Carthage. I like Carthage a lot but they draw one of the tougher first round opponents you can get.
DePauw is going to be overlooked here and that could prove to be a problem for Hope. This will either be a Hope sweep or a 5-set nail bitter. If DePauw had been playing better going into the tournament I would take them here but Hope should have the crowd behind them and they get the win.
Ohio Northern has a rough stretch in this arena earlier in the year but otherwise has been very good. I like Whitewater a lot but I think Ohio Northern’s offense carries the day here. Mild upset.
I think Greenville has this. I really do. I’ve seen about 10 of their matches and the pressure isn’t going to bother them…yeah, Calvin in a sweep.
