The Midwest League is preparing to start its new season this week. The Quad Cities River Bandits arrived last Saturday and will play their first game Thursday night at home against Wisconsin.

After finishing runner-up in the Division III postseason tournament, a player and the coach from the Augustana College men's basketball team have been honored. The website, D3hoops.com, has named guard Chrishawn Orange to its All-America fourth team, and chosen Grey Giovanine as national co-coach of the year.

With help from another team, the Quad City Mallards have made the playoffs.
