Let's see if the predictions were correct - Witt should be welcomed to the Top 25 after their win last night vs Marietta!

Nate Axelrod really - Is he a seventh year senior?  Seems like he's been there forever.

Wooster takes down #9 OWU 73-70

Didn't see that coming.  Woo led wire to wire as well.  The Scots have now won 7 in a row with the last 2 coming over 12-1 Emory & Henry who are tied for the ODAC lead and now OWU.  Wooster's last loss was at home to Wabash which dropped them to 1-2 in the NCAC.  They're now 4-2 and right back in the mix for the NCAC with the big road win at the Branch yesterday!

One of the keys for Woo's turnaround this season is the continued improved health of Alex Baptiste who has been put back in the starting lineup right at the end of 2017 portion of the schedule.  In Woo's last 2 games, Baptiste has been dominating on the boards with 20 rebounds vs. E&H and 11 more yesterday including 9 offensive rebounds!

Wooster's win sets up a showdown with undefeated Witt this Saturday at Timken!

It is always an exciting and surprising point in the season. The midway point. We are already halfway through another thrilling Division III basketball season. The best part, we have plenty more basketball to come. The hard part, we are also closer to the season coming to a close.

On Thursday night's Hoopsville, Dave will try and pull out his crystal ball and read the tea leaves on who can sustain their momentum, who may fall off, and which teams could make a run to the end. While we won't have all the answers, some of Dave's guests will be able to give us their insight on their own squad's chances.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch the show LIVE starting at 7pm here: http://bit.ly/2D3pOrw.

A reminder the Thursday edition of Hoopsville primarily covers the East, Mid-Atlantic, Great Lakes, and West regions, but we will answer any questions about all of Division III throughout the show. You can also send your questions to the show and have them featured on the Hoopsville Mailbag segment. Email them to hoopsville@d3hoops.com.

Guests include (in order of appearance):
- Matt Croci, No. 10 Wittenberg men's coach
- Jim Scheible, No. 7 Rochester women's coach
- Lori Kerans, Millikin women's coach (WBCA Center Court)
- Danny Young-Uhrich, No. 17 Juniata women's
- Pat McKenzie, No. 15 St. John's men's coach

You can also tune into the podcast(s) after the show has aired:

Jesus, Jon Hevlund, could you possibly be more biased in your broadcasting?  Absolutely embarrassing to the program, the college, and the industry.

I was thinking that too while watching online, but thought well every team is biased. I was particularly annoyed by every single call that went against Wooster being a "terrible" call. The officiating was actually pretty great in this game.

The young Wittenberg guards are going to be a handful for the NCAC to deal with for the foreseeable future. Excellent balance on this team as you can't key in one on guy and they play the hot hand well. If Witt can stay out of the upset kingdom until the gauntlet final 3 games of @Hiram, @Ohio Wesleyan, vs Wooster then I think they have a Pool C bid locked up.

Looking forward to attending some home NCAC tourney games for the first time in a while in Springfield later this year!
