Grace College... early findings

Just started doing some research on Grace College. Here's what I've got so far:

They're tall. Two 6-foot-11 guys, five guys 6-6 or better, 15 guys 6-0 or better. I know the 'official roster' can only have 15 guys on it, though, so hopefully some of those 15 stay home.

They've got some solid players. Duke Johnson (6-11, C) averages 15.7 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.4 steals per game. Bruce Grimm, Jr. averages 13.9 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.1 steals per game. Then they've got David Henry (10.0 p, 1.7 a) and Greg Miller (9.8 p, 6.0 r). BUT... according to a blog I found on Grace's athletic page, Grimm is questionable for Tuesday's game. So that might help.

They've got some quality wins. Grace beat No. 13 University of Saint Francis twice by a combined six points (including a one-point win) and lost to them in the conference semifinals. They've also beaten Indiana East and lost to Indiana Southeast, No. 12 Davenport and No. 9 Indiana Wesleyan twice. All five are in the national tournament field.

Time to do more digging.
