Pat, after reading all the charges and the findings, I thought Kean's women's bball team would get a multiple season post-season ban – or even a season or two without a program.  Next comes the former AD's lawsuit against the university...

What a disgrace for the Kean WBB program.  More to come.

Kean picks Washington and Lee's Mandy King to be their next head coach. Coach King turned around the performance of the W&L program and led them out of a dark period to be a very credible program. She is a great coach and W&L will miss her greatly.

Why exactly she chose to step into the Kean debacle is beyond me. There has been a recruiting drop off at W&L in the last few years, possibly indicative of a desire to leave or an inability to get the kids she wanted through admissions. If I was still at school and a student journalist, I'd be interested to hear why she was willing to try and pick up Kean's pieces.

All that being said, she is an excellent coach with a flawless ethical reputation and a very good repoir with her student-athletes. Kean, if it can overcome its stigma, should do very well with her in charge.

Good luck Coach King, and thanks for all the hard work over the last decade or so at W&L.

That's why Kean chose her. Any misstep by KU over the next few years and the NCAA will come down hard. A sterling reputation at an excellent private school and no skeletons in the closet comes first – and on-court performance second. As to why she would take this job is anyone's guess. There's at least two lawsuits stemming from this mess ... a possible loss of the University's Middle States Accreditation ... budget woes ... and 94% of faculty members at Kean University voted no confidence in the university's Board of Trustees this week saying they had lost faith in the board and the President. Yeah, fun place to be right now. Have a good time on the recruiting trail.

Congraulations to the Lady Red Hawks. 29-1 is not to shaby. I started to follow the girls on line this year. I never went to a game or posted because I would hex them. They are a young team and the program should be good for many years. Even shooting 38% and -0- fer from 3, we had the lead with 10 minutes left. Good luck to CNU, they will need it against DePauw. I think we will see DePauw and Hope in the finals. Thank you Lady Red Hawks for an enjoyable season.

Tough loss for MSU against Vassar last night....It seems the Red Hawks are at an extreme disadvantage this season without  S. Brown as the rebounding is now on the sole shoulders of Tobie; not a realistic expectation as Melissa already does so much for the team.  It would be interesting to know the real reason Brown left a great program and defected to FDU.

What is going on in the NJAC this year?  The NJCU women are not the bottom feeders, RU Camden is and both the NJCU men and women could make the conference tournament this year for the first time that I can recall.  It makes my head hurt thinking about it.

It would be interesting to know the real reason Brown left a great program and defected to FDU.

In hindsight, it would seem she left to win a national championship while getting a private school education.

I asked Shalette Brown why she left Montclair and she explained it was for academic reasons.  From our feature on her:

http://www.d3hoops.com/playoffs/women/2014/brown-final-piece-for-fdu-florham

As Brown explains, she enjoyed playing basketball at Montclair, but "for me it was about the academics and being a student athlete."  She wasn't able to get into the communications major right away at Montclair and didn't want to extend her college career another year.  So she looked at transferring to FDU-Florham.

As I understand it, she had a choice of staying at Montclair, trying to get in the communications major and extending her schooling by a year or transferring to FDU, entering its communications major and finishing her schooling in four years.

Good for her. In the end, she transferred for all the right reasons ... and I'd say it worked out pretty well for her!

Despite technical problems over the last few weeks, Sunday's edition of Hoopsville has not been derailed by Mother Nature's rath! Three-feet of snow and still we will get two-hours of the show all thanks to that wonderful home studio.

Tonight, Dave McHugh talks to programs who are storming the competition right now. Whether in the midst of long winning streaks or dominating their conference, these programs are making the turn at five weeks to go in pretty good shape.

You can tune into Hoopsville tonight starting at 7:00 PM ET right here: http://www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2015-16/jan24

Guest include (in order):
- Cherise Galasso, WPI women's coach
- Gabby Lisella, No. 22 Rowan women's coach
- Kris Huffman, DePauw women's coach (WBCA Center Court)
- Mike McGrath, No. 12 Chicago men's coach
- Bert West, East Texas Baptist men's coast It isn't easy to coach at any level. It is a joy to coach Division III says many a coach. Some enjoy it on their way up the ladder, others on their way closer to retirement, and others as their passion.
