The College Sporting News Feature on Soren Nelson.
- MIAC Profiles of Excellence - Soren Nelson
While their Division I counterparts often choose a college on the basis of which school will be the best steppingstone to a professional career, Division III student-athletes rely on other factors in making one the most important decisions of their lives to that point. For most, a combination of academics, availability of a particular major and location factor into their decision. Family tradition also often plays a large role in the process, as many Division III student-athletes follow their siblings, parents, grandparents and other relatives to the “family school,” For Soren Nelson, this family tradition played a big part in his decision to attend Concordia College.

“There’s a bit of a family tradition about attending Concordia,” said Soren. “My mom and my older sisters went here.” He added with a smile, “But my dad and older brother both went across town to Moorhead State.”(More)

Eckhoff Named to D3hoops.com West Region Second Team!
- Complete List of D3hoops.com All-Region Awards
Keith Eckhoff (Sr., Alexandria, Minn./Jefferson HS) has been named to the D3hoops.com All-West Region Second Team. It is the first time in his career that he has earned All-Region honors. The award comes two weeks after Eckhoff was named to the MIAC All-Conference First Team for the first time in his career. 

He becomes the first Concordia men's player player to earn NCAA All-Region honors in the history of the program. Concordia had several players earn NAIA All-District honors before the school switched to the NCAA governing body in the middle 1980's. 

Eckhoff finished the season as the team's leading scorer. His 21.2 points per game average was almost 10 points higher than his previous best season high total. He finished third in the MIAC in scoring with a 20.1 points per game average in the team's 20 league games. He was second in free throw percentage (84.1%), fourth in 3-point field goal percentage (47.0%) and tied for fifth in assists (3.90 apg).(More

Keith Eckhoff Named MIAC Player of the Week.
Concordia junior guard Keith Eckhoff (Alexandria, Minn./Jefferson HS) was named the MIAC Player of the Week for his three-game performance against Macalester, Carleton and North Dakota State University last week.

Eckhoff averaged 27.0 points per game in the Cobbers three games last week. His biggest contribution to Concordia's two league wins was against Carleton where he scored 36 points and hit the game-winning shot at the buzzer in overtime. 

For the week, Concordia went 2-1 with their only loss coming to NCAA Division I opponent North Dakota State University. Eckhoff led the Cobbers to a pair of league wins which places the team right back in the MIAC playoff hunt.

Eckhoff had game-high point totals in all three of the Cobbers' games during the week. On Monday, in Concordia's 77-68 win, Eckhoff scored 26 points and was 12-of-13 from the free throw line. In Wednesday's overtime thriller against the Knights, Eckhoff scored 36 points - including 15 of the team's 17 points in overtime. For the game he was 11-of-17 from the field, 5-of-6 from 3-point range and 9-of-10 from the free throw line. On Saturday against NDSU, Eckhoff scored 19 points. 

His three-game performance helped Eckhoff to the top of the MIAC scoring race. He also leads the league in 3-point field goal percentage and is second in free throw percentage.
