Was this the first year this event was in DG or immediate area?

I believe so...No Schaumburg this year.

I also agree with armour248's point about the viability of these events.
There's a tremendous amount of time and effort by NIU & coaches but if the attendance isn't there.....

Early June is a busy with graduations...weddings...beginning of summer for folks to take time to attend.

One other thing. Monty hinted that he wants to play more uptempo this year.
He was talking about the Women's team averaging 85 a game and it would take the Men 2 games to get to 85.
I hope it is true but I will believe it when I see it.

The men scored 72pts a game and the women scored 85pts per game. Here is a surprising stat: The men's fg% was 438 and the women's was 429. The women scored more by basically making more 3's and one more free-throw a game than men. Monty always says he wants to be more up tempo. I believe he has the roster to do it but we shall see.
