The Division III NCAA tournaments have already seen their fair share of twists and turns. Both defending champions eliminated on the opening night, several home teams beaten, off-the-radar squads tearing Top 10 teams apart, and much more.

It has been an exciting start. What's next?

Can the home teams parlay a perceived advantage into a Championship Weekend appearence? What Cinderalla team will hear the chimes of midnight? What program will continue to make history? How will the battle of Top 25 teams shake out? And will a storied career end this weekend or in Salem?

There is plenty to talk about ahead of the Sectional Weekend and Dave McHugh has a super-sized list of guests on Thursday night's Hoopsville.

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/2016-17/mar9 --- 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.

Despite the large list of guests, Dave will find time to answer questions as well. Make sure to email them to hoopsville@d3hoops.com or tweet them and Dave will answer them on air.

- Brian Morehouse, No. 18 Hope women's coach

We have a new resource that I wanted to share with our diehards before we publish it more broadly closer to the season.

http://d3hoops.com/top25/women/archive

This is an archive of every Top 25 women's basketball poll we've released over our 18 years of doing national rankings, rolled into one Excel spreadsheet, along with news and notes of interest.

If you try to download it and have problems, please let me know. I've tried a variety of computers/browsers and it seems to work. You will need Excel to download it.

This is an excellent resource, thanks for putting it together and the write up on it Gordon!

Are you ready for some basketball?

Ok... that's all I had for a "get the crowd excited" thing this morning...

Women's Preseason Top 25 is out. Tufts narrowly edges CNU and Amherst for the top spot: http://www.d3hoops.com/top25/women/2017-18/preseason

Other notes (from Gordon): Highest rankings ever for CNU (2), Wartburg (8), Trine (9) and Mass-Dartmouth (18). Wash U becomes the first school to be ranked in 250 Top 25 polls.

Men's poll will be out by the end of the week.

Good luck to all of the programs.

 Moravian should have an equivalent ranking as Scranton with at least 4 starters returning(haven't heard about newcomers, yet). Scranton should be lower after losing 3 starters including 2 stars as their newcomers and coaches adjust to a new offense/defense and roles.
  SUNY-Geneseo has a couple good newcomers and could be ranked higher; Ithaca, also, might be underrated.

A preseason poll is a forecast, not a ranking. A ranking should be based solely on performance in the 2017-18 season.
All teams are re-set to 0 wins and 0 losses and need to show us what they can do this season. The forecast (preseason poll) for this season should show win-loss records of 0-0 for every team.
We should think of every team as being positioned side-by-side at the starting gate. This is the only fair way to think about it.

SUNY Geneseo reported no starters returning. They may have been the only school in that boat on the women's side. Lots of schools report newcomers but they are almost impossible to measure unless you've seen them (which Ronk has) or they are transfers.  So there was almost no chance they were going to be ranked.

I agree on Moravian. They are on my ballot (low 20s) and Scranton is not. I ordered them Moravian, Scranton, Catholic for my ballot and only the Greyhounds made it.

Having just posted this on the men's side (in response to discussion about upcoming matchups between ranked teams), here is the corresponding report for the women, listing upcoming games through 11/26 (the last games before the first in-season poll), with teams-receiving-votes matchups in bold. Note - lots of "TBAs" for season tipoff tournaments.

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

There is always a large gathering of friends and family around a large table with plenty of food that helps ring in the new basketball season. Many call it Thanksgiving, we tend to call it the second weekend of the Division III season.

And one again the early weeks of the season have not disappointed... nor been lacking surprises.

Preseason Top 25 teams have lost as often as turkeys have been overcooked this holiday week. Teams who have had surprise starts have followed up with continued surprises or more head-scratching results. However, no matter the games and no matter the wins and losses, we are thankful to have the season here and be able to talk about it.

On Sunday's Hoopsville, Dave tries to gobble up the leftovers and figure out who was granted their wish after the snap of the wishbone. At the same time, we take the time to recognize a milestone at D3hoops.com: 20 years of being ... D3hoops.com - the home of Division III men's and women's basketball.

Dave also chats with a new dynamic duo in Baltimore. Hope Josh Loeffler and Catherine Bixby are settling into jobs that have seen the same coaches (Bill Nelson and Nancy Funk) in over thirty years.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch the show LIVE starting at 7:00 PM ET (or On Demand) here: http://www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2017-18/nov19. You can also listen to the podcast, located to the right, after the show is off the air.

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):
- Pat Coleman, Editor-in-Chief, D3sports.com
- Tim Sweeney, Hobart men's coach
- Josh Loeffler, Johns Hopkins men's coach
- Katherine Bixby, Johns Hopkins women's coach

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

How They Fared (So Far)

A lot less red in the report so far; already more clarity following the first in-season poll.
