We'll all get to see what BW is made of this weekend because they head to Wisconsin to take on last year's conference champs and this year's favorite, River Falls. Big weekend for both teams right off the bat.

What are we all thinking this year?

Per usual, the OAC is deep again this year and the top 5-7 will probably lay some lumps on each other.

I think BW is going to be a title threat this year but I am surprised JCU wasn't voted 2nd. Until someone unseats the Marietta-JCU party, my assumption is those two are the pair to beat in the OAC.

Also curious who gave the 1st place vote to Capital. That's the 2nd year in a row that has happened.

I'm thinking Marietta. As for John Carroll, I'm not sure how losing Moran is going to affect them this year. I still have to think the conference will be as balanced as always.

Putnam, on a side note, are you going to go see the Pios play the Tommies Saturday? That's got to be one of the major non-conference games in all DIII this year!

I actually put that game together.  ;D

Yes, I'll be making the trip down this weekend. Going to be a great weekend of basketball.

The Division III basketball season has begun and tonight Hoopsville will hit the air for its 15th season!

In tonight's season premiere, Dave McHugh chats with the two preseason No. 1 teams, both national committee chairs, and gets an update on a new tournament featuring several Top 25 teams. Dave will also try and get everyone up to speed on the new season and take a look at what has already happened in early season games.

One thing fans may notice is no video for this season's debut. This is not a change in the production of the show, just a temporary decision. There has been a lot going on leading up to the premiere and not everything got up to speed in time. We hope to have actual video broadcasts return in short order. We appreciate everyone's patience.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch the show LIVE staring at 7:00 p.m. ET here: http://www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2017-18/nov16 --- or via the Facebook Live simulcast. If you missed any part of the show, you can watch it On Demand or listen to the podcast.

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):
- Bobbi Morgan, Haverford women's coach and DIII National Basketball Committee Chair
- Tim Pitzpatrick, U.S. Coast Guard Academy Athletics Director and DIII National Basketball Committee Chair
- Eric Bridgeland, No. 1 Whitman men's coach
- Carla Berube, No. 1 Tufts women's coach
- Ryan Whitnabe, Great Lakes podcaster and Great Lakes Invitational creator

I don't get over here very often, so it may be old news, but what happened to Marietta's Keith Richardson, seems like a huge loss.

I'm in Marietta this weekend, so I'll double check, but I think he may have graduated.  He missed a season due to injury at some point, so he had another year of eligibility, but he might be done with school.

Official statement from Coach Vanderwal this afternoon: "We expect to see Keith Richardson back in a Marietta uniform in the future."

Marietta had a bit of a hangover from their big weekend and got off to a sluggish start against frostburg. Effort in the first half was a little lacking and they struggled in the opening stanza.

They came out of the locker room and turned up the heat on the second frame. Eventually pulling away.

Frostburg did a good job of slowing down Anthony Wallace. But this Marietta team is deep. Newcomers DeVaughn Winguard and Avery Williams had strong games. And Dillion young who had two quiet games to start the season, put up 20 points tonite.

The Polar Bears have started well.  They have had 3 solid games, 4 if you include their exhibition with Toledo.  Nate Burger has played about as good as you can.  Congrats to him for being named OAC player of the week.  Along with Ryan Bruns, they are a terrific inside/outside combo.  Joey Diorio has also played well.  If they can get a couple of more players to step up, and develop a bench, they could be a good team.

They open at home tonight against Alma who is always a solid team

Go Bears!

Not sure I can handle two sets of Polar Bears this year - the top post on the NESCAC board is all about Bowdoin.

This comment is a pretty good candidate for Pat Coleman to mull over how things have changed in 20 years.

Sadly, the one individual who seems to have his head in the sand... does frequent here as well. LOL
