My initial thoughts is that Anderson is probably to low and Hanover is to high. Time of course will tell but Anderson was a pretty darn good basketball team last year that couldn't put it together every night on a consistent basis. They return all 5 starters. Surprised to see the fall off on Defiance. I think they drop off but I am not sure they slip THAT far. Probably a middle of the pack team. Should be another fun year in the HCAC.

Cooper Theobald was fouled a couple times in Transy's 2OT win at Defiance... he went 29 of 32 from the line which as far as I can tell are both season highs in D3 this year. ???

The 32 is an all-time D3 record that's stood since 1999.  I'm pretty sure 29 is the season high, but the NCAA stats page is a little buggy right now, so I can't confirm.

In every season there are surprises. Teams who rise to the top at some point making everyone take a second look at what is going on. For most, it is a matter of making sure they are still around come the midway part of the season. Are they still for real?

On Thursday's night's Hoopsville, Dave chats with teams who clearly aren't just start-to-the-season flash-in-the-pans. Some conference races are not shaping up how many expected when the season began and for these squads they are perfectly fine with that.

Don't forget tonight's coverage looks primarily at the East, Mid-Atlantic, Great Lakes, and West Regions, but will also include taking a look at this week's NCAA Convention and other news around Division III basketball.

Hoopsville hits the air live at 7:00 PM ET. You can watch the show on the following link or on Facebook Live: http://www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2016-17/jan19. If you are unable to watch the show live, you can catch up On Demand or listen (or download) the podcasts (available when the show concludes).

Don't forget to contribute to the new "Hoopsville Mailbag" segment. Email questions you may have to hoopsville@d3hoops.com. Dave will answer them on air tonight or on a future show.

Guests scheduled to appear (in order of appearance):
- Mike Miller, Messiah women's head coach
- Chris Downs, St. Lawrence men's head coach
- Jon Miller, Hanover men's head coach
- Chris Novak, Bethel men's head coach

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

For the first time in the d3h era, the HCAC is still alive past the 2nd round. Hanover probably should be hosting the pod but Wartburg is 65 miles too far to drive so instead they'll have to take on the home team Hope to keep the season going.

Great year for the HCAC and I'd also like to point my first post at the top of this page was dead wrong. Hanover had a ton of question marks before the year started (Coach Miller admitted the same) but they've come together and put together a special year. All the best to the Panthers this weekend as they look to continue on in the tournament at Hope.

Any video of McKinney's buzzer beater?

http://www.courier-journal.com/story/sports/college/basketball/2017/03/10/hanover-advances-d-iii-tourney-mckinneys-buzzer-beater/99040124/

Kind of amusing how McKinney's teammates react. He hits the game winner and none of them run over to McKinney in the corner.  ???  ;D  :P

Yeah! They all ran away from him! No one said anything to him until one of his teammates punched him playfully in the hand shake line. I think they were shocked themselves.

Looking through some stats... found some good ones.
The HCAC was #1 in FG% (46.79%, MIAC next at 46.67%) and FT% (72.47, WIAC next at 72.09%) while they were #4 in 3pt% (36.41% and everyone ahead is nearby with WIAC 37.52, MIAA 37.02, OAC 36.65)
