The NCAA men's basketball regional advisory committees released their third set of rankings, and as expected, the Atlantic Region was among those getting shuffled. Here's the full list: http://www.d3hoops.com/notables/2018/02/men-regional-rankings-third

So happy for LeTU to make the tourney!

High winning percentage and they were stung by the low SOS, especially after scheduling a lot SCAC teams in the non-conference.

LeTU beat Hanover 85-77 in first round action at Emory.

They play the winner of Emory/Berry!

Nice win for the program and the ASC.

Sully right there with St. Olaf early 2nd half.

St Olaf has led by 3-7 points most of the 2nd half.

The Oles pulled away in the last 3-5 minutes.  (I could not see the time clock on the video feed.)

That was a frustrating game to watch. SRSU was playing excellent defense most of the game, but just seemed futile on defense.  When they got desperate at the end and winning wasn't really in the cards, they started being aggressive on the offensive end and doing the kinds of things that, had they done them earlier, would've won the game.

Thanks for the commentary, Ryan.  I am always interested in which styles of play that we see in the ASC match-up with those in the other parts of the country. When we have seen deep runs by ASC teams, I believe that it has been due to favorable mis-matches in styles of play.  In any case, UW-P will be formidable  for the Oles.

I am guarded about my predicted outcome in the LeTU-Emory game.  We will see.

Great game by LeTourneau at Emory,  losing 83-82 in the Round of 32.

​Dear D3 Faithful ;D,
     I have read many of your posts throughout the years and even met some of you in person, but for those who I havenít met, let me introduce myself: my name is Michael Rejniak and I have spent over 14 years coaching Division 3 basketball and love what our division has done and continues to do for  the sport of basketball. One of the greatest things about Division 3 basketball is the brotherhood that we all have with one another (coaches and players alike). My wish is to showcase the talents of D3 on a national stage in The Basketball Tournament (TBT).  You may have heard me speak about this on the Hoopsville Marathon with Dave McHugh of D3hoops.com (at the 6:11 mark). The TBT is a national tournament that is televised in July/August on ESPN after the NBA season is over. My goal is to put forth an all-star D3 team (current players are ineligible) and have them compete in this tournament to take on Former D1 / semi-pro's to prove that D3 deserves the same respect as other NCAA divisions. The team is mostly complete with former student-athletes from all over the country competing. Once the roster is complete we will be sure to release it through d3hoops. Former Babson College National Champion Matthew Droney '17 will also be assisting me on this journey.

How YOU can help our former elite D3 basketball players

While the end prize of this tournament is a monetary prize, being a D3-lifer, the goal is not the money (we all know that's not why we get into coaching), the goal is to bring an end to the stigma of Division 3 basketball, an awareness of how talented our student-athletes are and that we can compete (and win) against the best. We do need to raise funds for an entry fee, travel, meal and housing expenses for the athletes. In order to do this, we are conducting a crowd-funding campaign through GoFundMe to help make this a reality. These athletes need your support! Just think -- if every Division 3 school donated just $10, we will have raised over $4,000!!!! The link to the GoFundMe Page is below and please SPREAD THE WORD and email me with any questions/concerns at WeAreD3TBT@gmail.com. Thank you in advance for your support and Dave and I look forward to this "D3 Dream Team" taking the court this summer.-Mike Rejniak
