    Logie has his Whitworth team headed to the D3 tournament (8th straight, 3rd consecutive under Logie) via an automatic bid after winning their league. They are currently 22-5 and #12 in the country. Logie also just won his second Northwest Conference Coach of the Year award in his 3 seasons at Whitworth. Their first game in the D3 tournament is Friday.

    While it doesn’t look like Logie coming back to Lehigh any time soon, could he be a potential candidate to replace Ken Bone at Washington State? That team has gotten worse and worse since Bone took over. I think he is in Year 5 of a 7 year deal. Once Tony Bennett’s players left, WSU has not been the same. Bennett has done a great job at Virginia, after a slow start (struggled with losing transfers), and has Cavs at top of ACC (regular season champ), 25 wins, and up to #5 in country. Bone’s WSU squad has gone from NIT to CBI to now 9-19 overall and 2-14 in the Pac12. Bone’s win total over last four years has gone 22, 19, 13 and now 9. Not a good trend. He came from a smaller program in Portland St., not D3 by any means, but a smaller lesser known place. Maybe Logie could jump up to a job like that at some point. Or, should Logie jump up to an assistant at a major program, then try to make the step to a D1 head coach.

    Former Lehigh player/coach Matt Logie once again has his D3 Whitworth team making some noise. After start 1-2 they ripped off 16 straight wins and are currently 20-3 (13-1 in league) and ranked #19 in the country.

    Can’t think it is too easy getting publicity for your D3 program, when across town, Gonzaga is playing. Talk about second fiddle.

    Logie’s guys crashed out in the second round. He did however become the first D3 coach in history to acheive 100 wins within his first four seasons. Logie also won his 3rd Coach of the Year award in four seasons in charge. Obviously, he benefited from taking over a successful program (his predecessor was just named Big Sky COY after leaving Whitworth for Eastern Washington), but still nothing to sneeze at. I really like the idea of Lehigh (and it’s coaches) developing enough tradition and success to have a real coaching tree. It would be nice if/when Reed leaves there are a number of qualified coaches with Lehigh connections interested in the job.
