Tuned in to watch Zach Baines and Oxy against the #1 team in D3 yesterday.  Occidental did a beautiful job of handling the full court pressure defense for all but two minutes of the game.  That is when they lost their lead.
Still, it was very close to being the biggest upset of the young season.
Baines looks so much more mature now.  He always had great skills and remarkable patience.  Now he looks like a complete player who can take a team on his back.
Zach would be a top level talent in any D3 conference.  He is missed by Middlebury and the NESCAC and we still follow him.

The holidays brought us many presents in Division III basketball. From upsets to impressive performances, many teams made an impression. As a result, there is plenty to recap as Hoopsville returns to the air after the holiday break.

Join Dave as he talks to guests around the country and recaps an incredible few weeks - or tries to recap. From an assistant coach who made a life saving decision, a women's coach who has been fighting cancer without missing time with his team, to coaches around the country who have teams that have many wondering ... just how good are they?

With the midseason return of Hoopsville comes with it some of the more structured aspects of the show. For starters, Thursday nights are dedicated primarily to the East, Mid-Atlantic, Great Lakes, and West Regions for guests. Tonight also sees the season debut of the "WBCA Center Court" which is a segment that allows viewers to learn more about coaches and what they are involved in outside of basketball.

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

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):
- Justin Smith, Dubuque women's assistant coach
- Brian Newhall, Occidental men's coach
- Guy Rancourt, No. 6 Lycoming men's coach
- Matt Dempsey, Merchant Marine women's coach (WBCA Center Court)
- Jeff Hans, No. 8 Thomas More women's coach
- Joe Burke, Skidmore men's coach

I wonder if Cal Lu regrets their coaching decision.  They flat out stink after getting destroyed by 36 by a team that was 4-9 coming into the game.  I wonder what Dains would have done with this team?

Oxy is off to a 2-0 start in the conference, 9-2 overall. In SCIAC play the Tigers beat CLU on December 6, and beat Whittier 84-72 on the road this past Monday. 5 players in double figures: Zach Baines scored 26, Jonny Crosthwaite had 17, Jeevin Sandhu scored 16 off the bench, Austin DeWitz had 13, and Caleb Yellin-Flaherty scored 11. Always satisfying to get a win at Whittier.

Tonight Oxy is at La Verne. The Leopards are (ouch) 0-11, 0-3 SCIAC. For comparison's sake, ULV lost at home to Whittier by 26.

A real shame Geoff did not get the job.

It usually takes more than half a season to figure out if a coach was the right or wrong decision. Let's see where things go further than two months into the season. This isn't professional sports. It isn't even high-end DI.

Oxy 64 Pomona 60

Took in the Saturday afternoon game between Oxy and Pomona. Pretty well attended considering class doesn't start until next week.

Low-scoring first half. The Sagehens got off to a quick 15-6 lead, as Oxy appeared to be unable to defend against Pomona's slip screens, and the Tigers also had some trouble containing Pomona's string bean 6'9" forward Alex Preston. The Tigers made a run of their own and the half ended 26-24. In the second half the game was tied at 31, 44, and 60. Jonny Crostwaithe's layup gave Oxy the lead 62-60 with 13 seconds left, and after a FT miss by Micah Elan, Zach Baines sealed it for Oxy with 2 FTs.

Oxy shot 47% from the floor, but the Tigers did not help themselves by only making 10 of 19 FTs. Pomona was only 5-for-20 on 3-pointers, and shot 38% for the game. Oxy outrebounded Pomona 43-29.

For Oxy, Baines had 15, Crosthwaite scored 10 and Austin DeWitz had 14. For Pomona, Elan scored 18, Preston 13 and Corbin Koch had 10.

Next for Oxy are three road games at Redlands, Chapman and CLU.

In other games on Saturday:

Claremont 70 Chapman 63
Cal Lutheran 93 Redlands 84
Caltech 96 La Verne 86

Whittier was idle. The curse of a 9-team league.

Records:

Oxy 12-2, 5-0
CMS 6-7, 4-1
CU 12-4, 5-2
PP 5-10, 3-3
WC 5-10, 3-3
UR 5-10, 3-4
CLU 4-9, 2-4
CIT 4-11, 2-4
ULV 0-14, 0-6

I see Redlands is still really bad at basketball. I never would have thought the losing stink of Gary Smith would carry over to Jim Ducey. SMH

Well after observing the Cal Lu coach vs Caltech and watching various games online... it is very apparent.... this coach is no Geoff Dains.  He had to be a “friend” hire if ever there was... had he even been a college head coach prior.... ashame nepotism played a part of getting rid of a qualitycoach such as Geoff.... but.... the proof is in the losses.... you cannot hide from those....

I just finished my ballot for this week.  I've got Occidental in about 34th position, but lots of room to move up if other teams falter.

Pretty good game between Cal Lu and Oxy last night.  Oxy gets the 2 point win after a Cal Lu shot clanks off the rim at the buzzer.  Oxy built an 11 point lead at one point and Cal Lu led by 3 at another but the end was pretty entertaining.
