Northwest Conference----One of the great basketball leagues in the country on any level is the Northwest Conference, which has nine teams that are located in the state of Oregon and Washington.
As of late, the Whitworth Pirates have dominated the league, in a fashion that has not been seen since the days of the Ted Wilson coached Linfield Wildcats in the late 60s and 70s.
This 2014-15 season, Whitworth will be looking for its 6th consecutive regular season championship and 9th straight NWC tournament championship. Now coaching the Eastern Washington Eagles, Jim Hayford got this all started and his replacement, Matt Logie has not missed a beat as he starts his 5th year at the helm of the Pirates.
But wait, sometimes all great things come to an end. This is my pre-season power rankings for the NWC, of course which will updated throughout the year as we bring back the now world famous NWC/Cascade Collegiate Conference power rankings. For today, here is my, without playing a regular season game power rankings for the NWC.
1. Lewis and Clark
5. Puget Sound
6. George Fox
8. Pacific Lutheran
Enjoy and per usual there will be the Crawford adjustments during the season. Tomorrow, I give you my Cascade Collegiate Conference pre-season power rankings.
Scores----I got off to a fast start with my NBA score predictions, but lately that has slowed and I stand at the season, 7-5. So here we go with Thursday night, which is a light schedule.
Sacramento 106 @ Memphis 107
Brooklyn 110 @ Golden State 129
Chicago 88 @ Toronto 90
