Having already downed Wash U twice, for the first time in program history, Chicago now looks to make it official tonight. A Final Four berth in Bloomington, Ill., is at stake.
Despite some recent injuries that have struck the Bears, there’s no doubt they’ll be as competitive as ever on the neutral court. And the Maroons themselves have a rested lineup that will look to exploit several advantages.
It’s a can’t-miss matchup tonight at 6 p.m. CT on Go Maroons LIVE!
Live audio (by phone or computer) available shortly before 4 p.m. CT today. Chicago marches on to take on Greensboro! NEXT.
No matter how much yesterday’s NCAA tournament opener marked a new start and an all-new test for the Maroons, it was the same old Chicago women’s basketball team dominating with size, athleticism, defense and shooting.
Official recap is at the official athletics site. Meghan Herrick scored 19 of her 25 points in the first half and was the dominant two-way force she often is, including keeping Hanover to a one-gun offense. Morgan Herrick and Taylor Simpson added reliable work in the post.
Yesterday’s game was one of runs, though Chicago’s came first and their answers were always larger than Hanover’s. And both Calvin and Chicago were able to run out to big leads and rest their starters in the second half yesterday.
Join us once again on Go Maroons LIVE, starting at 5:45 p.m. CT. Links for computer and mobile devices at Go Maroons LIVE. (Unfortunately, we learned that the audio is well behind the host’s video-only feed.)
o Maroons LIVE has you covered for tonight’s NCAA tournament first-round game. We’ve recently learned that Calvin is providing a video-only broadcast, so while we won’t be in sync with that feed, we will be able to provide exclusive audio.
You can listen by computer or smartphone. Listen links and other details are available by visiting the Go Maroons LIVE page.
The University of Chicago women’s basketball team’s incredible run has led to this: A UAA championship and an NCAA tournament berth. Starting Friday at 4 p.m. Central time, you won’t want to miss a moment.
Go Maroons LIVE will be providing audio for the team’s road tournament games, specifically targeted for Chicago listeners.
The host institution, Calvin, is providing a video stream for first and second round games. While we’re not sure how well the Chicago audio will sync up with Calvin’s video feed, our player does allow for listening by certain phones (iPhone, Blackberry, Android, etc.) and also on slower connections. We’ll also make archived audio available to Chicago Maroons fans.
Our hope is to reach every last Chicago Maroons follower! Go Maroons LIVE
Unfortunately, schedules preclude us from being able to make the trip to Iowa on Friday to announce the game between Chicago and Wartburg. We’ll be following along with the rest of you at http://client.stretchinternet.com/client/loras.portal#.
Should the Maroons advance to Saturday, we’ll be there, and we’ll be fired up. While we won’t blame you if you want to use the Loras video broadcast, we hope you’ll pair us up on audio (and that the lag times sync well enough to make it work).
Hope to hear from you via e-mail all weekend long—email@example.com. We’ll pick things back up on Saturday!

As previously announced, we’ve made the trip to St. Louis to broadcast one of our favorite rivalries of the year. For the women, it’s an opportunity for a tune-up after clinching the UAA. The men have the chance to play spoiler against one of the conference’s top title contenders and to send off a very technical senior class with a win.
Thanks to the Wash U athletic department, we are scheduled to broadcast on the Bears’ live video stream! We’re thrilled to wrap up the regular season on their high-quality broadcast. In case anyone needs to listen to audio only because of technical limitations, we hope to make that available as well.
It’s been a while since we last saw the Maroons, so we’re taking the 240-mile trip north to see the last non-conference tune-up of the season. Stevens Point is nationally ranked and seems to have hit its form once again after a transitional year last season. Chicago features a wide variety of new faces and has been able to turn talent into results of late.
