It is nearly time to tip up the ball on the NCAA Division III Basketball Tournaments. Who will end up in Grand Rapids and Salem with a chance at a national title?

On Thursday's nights Hoopsville, Dave McHugh gives his preview of the two tournaments and who may be the surprises, who can pull off an upset, who are the favorites to make a run, and who just might walk away with the walnut and bronze.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs LIVE starting at 7:00 PM ET from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch the show here: http://www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2016-17/mar2 --- or via the simulcast on Facebook Live.

Hey everyone,
Don't know if anyone remembers me from years past but its Dan Thomas from (Australia). Was just writing to see how the league is going these days. Is there any chance of links to watch some of the conference games, especially between rivalries such as Behrend and Pitt. Must say I have had a nice read through these topics and good to know someone valued the efforts of us Student Athletes.

As for myself, I am currently playing professionally in Australia and before that was in Europe plying my trade, in Croatia, Denmark and Germany. Its been one heck of a ride from being a D3 Baller to then pushing myself to compete at a very high level in Europe. I hope all is well and look forward to many more chats about the current state of the AMCC.

Hopefully get a chance to get back and see some games one day, never know. Miss college ball tremendously at times.

Talk soon

Pat,
Basketball is going great right now. Level isn't the same as NBA, clearly not, but very high quality and we get some very good Americans out here. We are allowed two per team. Feel free to follow on instagram and can always keep up to date with stuff going on down my way in Perth.

We are just in to the fresh season now and have lost some crucial players to retirement after winning our third championship. We are currently sitting in 6th overall and looking to push for a top four finish by seasons end to ensure home playoff births.

Hope all is well in the AMCC.

DT,

​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
