The combination of hardware and soft drinks fueled Stoltenberg, O'Neil, Alex Forseth, and Will Wermager's nonstop push to find meaningful trends within a massive collection of data on Fastenal sales last weekend. Sleeping bags were stashed in the corner, but the four Winona State University (WSU) students never unrolled them. They did not sleep a wink during WSU's 24-hour number crunching frenzy, the Midwest Undergraduate Data Analysis Competition (MUDAC). While other WSU students were enjoying a typical Saturday night, working weekend jobs or catching up on homework, Stoltenberg, O'Neil, Forseth, and Wermager were staying up all night to test their college learning and burnish their professional... Nearly 100 students from universities across Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin came to Winona last weekend to work through the night combing through massive data sets from Fastenal as part of the WSU Mathematics and Statistics Department competition. Teams raced against the clock and competed amongst each other to find the most valuable insights hidden within seemingly endless spreadsheets. "This is the fourth annual MUDAC," WSU Professor Chris Malone bellowed to an auditorium full of competitors Saturday morning. After the hollering died down and a few formalities were taken care of, Malone asked the students' faculty advisors to leave the room.
In spite of a lopsided 71-35 loss to Pope John Saturday night at Pine Belt Arena in the NJSIAA Non-Public A championship game, that's what the Colts did this year. RELATED: Colts can't overcome Pope John in Non-Public A Final. They advanced to the Shore Conference Tournament championship game for the second straight season and won a sectional title for the first time since 2009. "I think Shore Conference finals — that's where we belong, and then this game (the state... Two years ago, CBA had a very un-CBA-like season. "To make it back to the Shore Conference finals back-to-back years, win the sectional championship and make it here is great,'' CBA senior forward Jack Laffey said. However, Saturday night showed CBA (24-6) still has a ways to go to win its first state championship since 1995, when Billet was the standout senior guard for legendary former head coach Ed Wicelinski. "They were a lot bigger and a lot tougher than I assumed,'' Laffey, who was held to seven points on 3-for-10 shooting after he had 38 points in CBA's 83-77 win over St. Augustine in the Non-Public South A championship game, said.

HARTFORD - The University of Cincinnati Bearcats understood they would live to play another day, but that didn't matter in the immediate aftermath of their dramatic loss to Connecticut on Friday night. "It's a heartbreaker to lose like that because we definitely wanted to win the championship," said junior forward Shaq Thomas. The Bearcats had come here fully intending to win the school's first conference tournament championship since 2004, so after Connecticut's Ryan Boatright's 3-pointer with. 2 of a second left gave the Huskies a 57-54 victory, eliminating them from the American Athletic Conference in the quarterfinals, they sat stunned in their XL Center locker room. But it didn't take long for the Bearcats to begin to look ahead to next week's' NCAA Tournament. "It's going to sit for awhile and then it's going to light a fire behind us to go into next week to be really ready no matter who we play. 3 seed UC (22-10) saw a five-game winning streak come to an end and will await its expected NCAA Tournament berth on Sunday. 6 seed Connecticut, the defending national champion, improved to 19-13 and will play No. 2 seed Tulsa (22-9) at 5 p. m. Saturday in the semifinals. The Bearcats, who trailed by five with 1:25 left, tied the score on a follow shot by Thomas with 13. 5 seconds left.
