Yeshiva beats Brooklyn 94-48. I suppose that's not surprising. But I found it interesting that 3 starters still played 34 minutes each. In fact, according to the PbP, Turell and Leader were still in there at the 3:39 mark up 42. Ouch. Seems unnecessary.

For two programs this week, the number 25 is probably considered lucky. For many, it represents the bottom of a Top 25 ranking, but for those in the 25th slot ... it means they are ranked.

St. John Fisher hasn't been ranked since "Desperate Housewives," "Boston Legal," "The Shield," and "Fear Factor" where some of the most popular shows on television. The top movie was "Coach Carter." However, Coach Melissa Kuberka has gotten her Cardinals squad back into the rankings after a terrific start to the 2021-22 season. We talk to her about the team's success and how the rest of the season could shape up.

For DeSales, there were signs they were going to be good during the COVID season. Not all teams are able to duplicate that short-season success, but the Bulldogs are off to an undefeated start. Coach Scott Coval discusses just how good the team is and why we haven't seen the unit at it's very best. Plus, one can still break a backboard in today's game? DeSales found out it is possible.

Plus, Yeshiva is getting plenty of attention now that they have been ranked #1 in the D3hoops.com Top 25 poll the last few weeks. But do you really know the Macabees and their program? We talk to Gary Belsky who wrote an expose on the program for ESPN. It's a must read and a must listen to segment.

And UW-Eau Claire Athletics have big plans for future Blugolds and DIII championships. Introducing the $70 million Sonnetag Center. AD Dan Schumacher discusses the significant way UWEC could shift championships and even regional recruiting by 2024.

We are now into the holiday break period for Division III. Some programs are playing occasional games or in tournaments/classic, others are taking extended breaks as they prepare for the conference grind starting in January. So time to take the temperature of the season so far.

On Sunday's Hoopsville, Dave McHugh chatted with a couple of teams garnering headlines around DIII. He also got the perspective of the season so far from those who follow it the closest.

And we take the time to celebrate the life of Mike Freilich, an assistant coach who died unexpectedly on Friday and has left many saddened throughout Division III.

The upcoming matchup between #1 Yeshiva and #4 Illinois Weslayan could prove to be the D3 regular season matchup of the year.

GO MACS!!!

That is certainly a candidate. Although IWU's (61-71) loss last night to Washington U (9-1 UAA) takes some of the glitter off the upcoming matchup in the City.

If you put any weight in Doctor Massey his #1 UW-Oshkosh (9-1) and #3 UW-Platteville (11-0), who meet twice on 1/19 and 2/2 may also be in the mix for the D3 matchup of the year.

In the first half of last night's game, Illinois Wesleyan put on a clinic.  Absolute lock-down defense by the Titans, and everything went right for the Titans on the offensive side of the ball.  Yeshiva took a pummeling, and if people saw Yeshiva last night for the first time in the first half and thought that Yeshiva in the first half looked more like Mount St. Vincent or any other Skyline team that would have been expected to lose big to the Titans in a match, I would not have blamed you.

Yeshiva made adjustments and won the second half by 6 points, and if the Macs had played more Top 25 competition before last night, maybe the game would have had a better result than it did. 

Ryan Scott had the more accurate result of the game watching it live, and I did watch some other Yeshiva games this season to know that Coach Steinmetz could have done a better job in preparing the Macs for the physical style of Illinois Wesleyan than he did over the past week or so.  As former NYU women's basketball coach and current NYU associate athletic director Janice Quinn would say (and did say in 2001 after the NYU women's basketball team got pummelled by Wash U at the Francis Field House in St. Louis);  "It is a good lesson for us."

The scheduled game this Sunday vs Williams has been postponed or cancelled due to COVID-19 protocols, so the Macs are now on their January break, and it is Skyline Conference play the rest of the way when the Macs return from break.

Even though I wish that the game would been closer, I did enjoy watching the pre-game festivities watching the MacsLive live feed, switching between Youtube and the JLTV simulcast (which was exactly the same thing)-- JLTV just turned on an automatic switch at 7:30 PM Eastern that switched the broadcast from the regularly scheduled "Bubbes Knows Best" to the MacsLive feed-- just like a machine switch would work on your local community access TV station.  From my bedroom, I sang the national anthem and Hatikvah with the crowd and said a private Shecheyanu before the ball got tipped (a prayer thanking G-d for allowing me to reach this occasion.)

The countdown is on! Ten more days until the regular season comes to a close and we find out who will be playing for the Walnut and Bronze!



Thursday on Hoopsville, there is plenty to keep track of throughout Division III.

Hoopsville starts immediately following the NCAA Division III National Committee's announcement of the Top 16 "seeds" in both men's and women's rankings aired. We chatted with both national committee chairs, Michael Schauer of Wheaton (Ill.) and Megan Wilson of Luther, about the release, how they came to the decisions, and what they hope to inspire with the announcements. Plus more.

Then we talk to coaches around the country about their programs and how they are positioning themselves for conference tournaments.

Guests include:
  • National Committee Chairs
    • Michael Schauer, No. 11 Wheaton (Ill.) coach
    • Megan Wilson, Luther Associate Athletics Director
  • Brendan Twomey, Farmingdale State men's coach
  • Greg Mitchell, Hope men's coach
  • Nick DiPillo, No. 17 Scranton women's coach
  • Michelle Ferenz, No. 6 Whitman women's coach
We had scheduled to talk to Christine VanHook from PSU-Behrend women's basketball, but there was a last minute scheduling conflict. We hope to catch up with Coach VanHook in the next week.

So is this the end of Yeshiva? Are they reloading? Rebuilding?
