Title: Hoopsville: Division III Basketball's Talk Show
Post by: Dave 'd-mac' McHugh on January 07, 2011, 05:48:48 pm
We have started a new thread for a new season of Hoopsville. I have honestly lost count on what season this is... 9th or 10th... but we are back all the same.

Sunday, January 9th will be the season debut for the '10-'11 season and we already have a full line-up. We will be talking to coaches from Whitworth, Plattsburgh St., Virginia Wesleyan, and Amherst (women), along with regional reports from the Midwest, West, and East. Pat Coleman and I will also discuss the season so far and our trip to the D3hoops.com Classic in Las Vegas!

So tune in on Sunday from 7 - 9 PM EST. And don't forget to tune in the rest of the season on Thursday and Sunday nights from 7-9 PM EST.

You can also head to our official website at www.d3hoopsville.com for more information, watch and interact with the show live, or catch the archives of previous shows. You can also check out the Hoopsville Fan Page on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Hoopsville/142862242427823) or on Twitter (@d3hoopsville).

And we will see you SUNDAY!

Is anyone going to be at the Wabash/Wooster game?

None of us personally. My hope is to watch online. Too big to completely miss.

I'm wondering if this is the latest ever for TWO games the same day between unbeaten teams (Woo/Wabash and Amherst/Williams - THREE if you count the Amherst/Williams women's game).  Anyone know?

And it was even four with NYU-Brandeis. No real records on that but it seems unusual, especially to have three on the men's side. Women's unbeatens tend to last a little longer.

-----------
The 5-15-5 theory has some merit...but as others have said - it depends on who you are playing on the bad nights.  Strength of schedule can throw that theory out the window. 

I feel it makes more sense to look at the teams actual schedule and break it down into 3 categories. 

1) Games that should be wins
2) Games that may be loses 
3) Games that could go either way

The #'s in each category will vary based on the strength of your team and the strength of your schedule.

A good, well coached team should:
-Lose no more than one game from column #1,
-Win 50 % from column #2
-Win 75% from column #3.
 
If this happens you have had a successful season

Dave,
  I heard u say that u were going to have a committee member on Hoopsville tomorrow; I think a lot of us would like u to have him take us through the process of the regional ranking that he just completed. What's their order in the primary criteria? won-loss, then sos, head-2-head, common opponents? And if he's from the Mid-Atlantic, what are the teams ranked 10-12?

A couple of points after listening to this afternoon's broadcast...

You mentioned that Stevens Point and and St. Norbert are playing each other in both the men's and women's tournaments in the first round...

Well, last year, Stevens Point and St. Norbert met in the second round... in both the men's and women's tournaments.


The question was also raised if the SNC/UWSP men's game would be a defensive battle... Well, they're Point is #6 and Norbs is #8 in scoring defense and Norbs is #12 and Point #31 in field goal % defense...

But UWSP is #1 in the country in (offensive) field goal %. St. Norbert is 105th.  UWSP is 14th in turnover margin... Norbs is 91st. 

I think both defenses are going to make it tougher to score than usual... but UWSP's offense is on a different starting level.  Last year, Stevens Point won 63-48... the offense wasn't up to "par" for SP (74 per game last year) but the depth really helped Point... 5 guys scored 7 or more last year.

The pace will be diminished and so because of this, you likely won't see a 20 point game, but I also think Stevens Point will score in the upper 60's or low 70's.  FWIW, SP has failed to reach 71 points 3 times this season... in their 3 losses.

The Wisdom of Hoopsville...

Pat Coleman, Feb 28, 2011, Match-up Monday special broadcast, beginning at the 7:00 mark...


"...it is always seemingly easier to build the bracket, starting from west to east, just because of the way, you know, the geography breaks down.  There are always so many teams up in the Northeast.  And when I got to the end, I had like ... 12 teams umm... to kinda spread across the bottom of three brackets, and none of them, frankly, were any good at all."

"You wanna play that Thrusday game."

(Please help me with the origins, date and speaker for this pearl.  I cited the quote on the Pool C board back in 2009.  UTD actually beat Trinity TX on their way to the Elite 8.  UTD lost Guilford in OT.)

TEAMS WITH 1st ROUND BYES
Puget Sound-(C)
Texas-Dallas-(A)
Ithaca-(C)
Middlebury-(A)
As you can plainly see, awarding byes on the basis of geography rather than merit is just a bunch of caca.

Pat's comment about how he fills a bracket is priceless.  I think that is how and why his brackets make so much sense.

Maybe his wisdom, as read by the intelligentsia of the sport, will be reflected in future brackets!

That's me, from the 2005 Selection Sunday night broadcast, responding to a comment from a Buena Vista fan complaining that they did not get a first-round bye. In the 48-team bracket I think getting your feet wet is very helpful, and especially for a program that had accomplished what BVU had to that point.

In the 48-team bracket I think getting your feet wet is very helpful, and especially for a program that had accomplished what BVU had to that point.

I can attest to that, too... we got spanked at home by Gustavus Adolphus after a first round bye and a really good regular season in 02-03.  We didn't have as good a regular season in 03-04... so we hosted Benedictine in that Thursday game before traveling back to Gustavus on Saturday.  I think that in 02-03, the experience really got Gustavus ready to come to SP... and it propelled them to the Final.

For us, the Thursday game in 03-04 really helped us get our feet wet... and it gave us the confidence to go into Gustavus and grind out a tough victory.  And for us (not sure about Gustavus...) the game against Gustavus was really a marquis win.  It showed us that we could compete with the best.  And I think that it allowed us to take the best that Lawrence and Williams had to throw at us and respond.

The next year, in 04-05, we had the experience... we really didn't need the Thursday game and I actually think we benefitted from it.  We got to rest while Lawrence had to travel to St. Peter to play at GAC... and then turn around and plat at Stevens Point two nights later.


For this reason (though it's this reason only...) I like the pods.  Instead of a team having to travel on Thursday and beat the home team and then turn around and travel again on Saturday to take on another home team, that team has the luxury of only 1) having to travel once 2) getting an extra day to prepare for the first opponent and 3) getting a few extra hours rest after playing the early game for the contest on Saturday night.


But I don't like how half of the teams get a home game taken away from them.  If they played well enough to earn that first round home game, then they should get the extra advantage... they shouldn't be penalized...  Truly, the pod host has a distinct advantage in both of their games and the next-best team in the pod (the other would-be host) has a neutral game and then is the visitor.

2000  WashUStL (UAA) -- Central
1999  WashUStL (UAA) -- Central
1998  WashUStL (UAA) -- Central

(I really could not stop at the last 10 seasons with the WashUStL run.)

The SCAC has had 2 unique champions.

Hoopsville tonight...

I thought that the committee did a good job.  They agonized over the last 4-5 teams and who was getting into the tourney.  We cannot ask anymore than that.

 ;)
The committee has problems with the Sunday Tournaments.

I have a suggestion...Give the 15-team ASC 2 bids.  That way, we can have 2 four-team tourneys, conduct the tourneys on Friday and Saturday and be done a day earlier.   ;D

I bring this question from the ODAC board where the lamentations of the RMC fans are plainly read.

I ask the opinions of the Hoopsville BrainTrust.

How much home court advantage is there against a team:

that buses less than 3 hours?

that buses more than 3 hours?

that is flown to the site?

I did not hear any opinions on the show(forgive me if I missed it) and had no responses on the ODAC board.

How about 3 points for less than 3 hours, 4 points for more than 3 hours and 7 points for a plane flight?

I'd be interested in your rationale for 7 vs. 4 for a 2 hour plane flight vs. a 9 hour bus ride?

I'm just not sure this is an advantage that can be simply quantified.  Home court has so many factors that will vary from court to court (and team to team).  There are the physical factors (lighting, shooting background, 'deadspots' on the floor 'feel' of the rims), the physical/psychological factors (staying in your normal routine, not getting 'stiff' on the bus), and the psychological factors (the adrenaline rush of the home crowd, the confidence because it is home).  I'm guessing that these (and other factors not mentioned) vary so widely that trying to put specific numbers on the difference is an exercise in futility.

And there are always those teams that take great pride in being 'road warriors'! :D
Title: Re: Hoopsville: Division III Basketball's Talk Show
Post by: Ralph Turner on March 07, 2011, 09:59:03 am
Any trip under three hours is probably close enough to have some fan following.

The 200-499 mile range is another issue.  The eight-hour bus ride is a problem, but you may still have some fan support, and a few students can pack themselves into a vehicle to make the trip.

Coach DeWeese stated last night on Hoopsville that UMHB will leave Belton, TX at 3am on Wednesday morning to catch the 6 am flight out of Austin, TX.  I suspect that the flight will land in Moline IL.  (Is that a charter?)  Then the bus ride to the campus, 2 nights in the hotel before the game.  That is considerable disruption.

The factor that one has not covered is variations in officiating styles around the country.  There is a huge difference in the style of play that is tolerated in Texas versus the styles that I have witnessed in the CCIW, when ASC teams have gone there.

Though, we shouldn't forget Coach DeWeese's great point he thinks his team will be in the game against Augustana for maybe five minutes - he was being humerous... which lead to more humor throughout the interview. For example, he won't be going to the game... wants his asst. coach to text him during the game! :)

Honestly, i'm not sure the flight has anything to do with it.  In reality, a 2 hour plane ride is less tightening for an athlete than a 7 hour bus ride.  You talked about it the other day in referencing what really makes up "home court advantage," which for those who didnt see it had to do with the ability of a home crowd to influence referees.

I had a coach tell me once that for a team that's not accustomed to it, getting on a plane is 20 points. Now, I don't agree with that assessment, but it's out there.

I am not sure I want to start assigning general point values for different types of games because there are way too many factors.

I totally agree.  And with such vastly different styles of play, how can it really be quantified?  Are you going to be playing a William Patterson and struggle to score 60, or are you going to be playing an up-tempo team like Eastern Mennonite and have a game that's probably in the 80's?

There are simply more possessions to be had going against a team like EMU than Willy Pat... so the chance of there being a blow out is greater.

If you look at teams like Augustana or St. Thomas, they play most of their games possession by possession... and each possession matters, so lots of their games are closer.  Amherst plays more possessions per game and they run teams off the floor with relative frequency.

I came to the 7 point swing from observing the ASC as its teams (usually McMurry and UT-Dallas) flew to games in other parts of the country and then observed teams that came to Texas, at both UMHB and Concordia-Texas and the Trinity/Southwestern teams.  Occasionally we would have snowbirds come to HPU and Schreiner.  As I looked at the indexes and the yearly outcomes on home-and-home series, it seemed that a 14 point swing mght occur in the margin from one year to the next, or in the "comparative scores" game.

If there were more possessions in an up-tempo game, then that swing might be +/- 8-9 points.

In 2009-10 McMurry lost by 16-18 at Wheaton.  It was quite clear that those refs and fans were shocked and appalled for what passes for basketball in a football state like Texas.  McMurry beat UT-Dallas last season, 2009-10.  (McMurry, UTD, UMHB and a few others are a big mish-mash of comparable quality in the ASC.) UT-Dallas beat Wheaton in the second round of the playoffs on the last possession in Dallas.  That is where I got the 7 point swing.

Specifically, if Augie beats UMHB by 17, then I'll bet that Augie would only edge UMHB by 3 in a game played in Belton, TX, and beat them by 10 on a neutral floor, e.g., UW-SP.

Roughly what I expected.  UMHB last tied the score at 22 with 6:36 left in the first half.  Augie  began to pull away to a 37-30 halftime lead.  

Augie went ahead by 58-30 with 10:40 left and 61-42 with 6:42 left.  Final Augie 70-57.

I propose that the 7 point home court advantage to the team hosting an opponent who has flown* applies in the Wooster-Whitworth  game as well.

This game is Wooster 69,  Whitworth 64 with 0:41 secs and Wooster's ball.  It becomes a frantic "3FGA and foul 'em" contest for Whitworth from there out.  Look how the 7-point Home Court Advantage changes the nature of the game from the play-by-play in the entire game.

Ralph - we will be providing some small pre-taped shows between now and January as we have found that listernship is just not there for the live version of the show until we get to January. I (we) are also very busy with the cross-over season and that takes a toll on the time I prepare for the show.

However, I hope to maybe have a small show ready next week or shortly after Thanksgiving with other mini-shows to follow. Stay tuned for more info.

And don't forget to follow us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/hoopsville (http://www.facebook.com/hoopsville)) and on Twitter (@d3hoopsville).

No... and hasn't been for years! CBS Sports Network (previously CBS College Sports Network... previously College Sports TV) did air the championship games a few years ago, but now Turner has the rights and they and the NCAA broadcast the semifinals and championship games only online.

Oh that stinks. A huge shame too. People need to realize that Division 3 basketball is not much farther behind Division 1 basketball, the only difference is speed, only sometimes. But forsure height. In fact, it seems like division three teams probably shoot better than the big boys. I sure wish they would broadcast the games on tv.

Don't forget we have plenty of programming coming up in the coming days.

Our normal Thursday edition will air from 8-10 PM EST with a look at how conference tournaments are going and any upsets that have already taken place. We will also look at what teams may be "locks" to make the tournaments and those "bubble" teams that need a lot to go in their favor.

Sunday is our traditional "Selection Sunday" show where we will spend three hours looking at who is in, the surprises, and those sitting on the bubble hoping the national committees will pick them. We will talk to regional reporters with their take on the decision process and hear from coaches whose teams may be a surprise dancer or those waiting to see if their bubble pops. It all starts at 7:00 PM EST>

Then on Monday, we will have a special "Match-Up Monday" broadcast starting at about 7:30 PM EST. We will hopefully talk to both national committee chairs about the teams selected and the brackets they have created... answering your questions. We will also talk to coaches and their teams who still have a chance at a national championship.

To follow all the action and find out who will be on our shows, don't forget to follow us on Twitter at @d3hoopsville (www.twitter.com/d3hoopsville (http://www.twitter.com/d3hoopsville)) or using the hashtag #hoopsville.

I listened to Hoopsville for a while this evening, but it was impossible to continue.  I could barely hear the interview of Dave and Mia because the commercial was on endless loop and I couldn't find any way to get it to shut the f*** up!  I had the Hoopsville picture and sound, but the sound of the commercial nearly drowned it out!

I hate to 'bite the hand that feeds you' but what was I doing wrong?

Yipsi - I have no idea what you did wrong... though we might have had some audio up on our end... what did the ad sound like... what you would get on Ustream or what we normally run.

Thanks for your quick response!  I gave it another try during your interview with Ron Rose.  I found a 'pause' button on the ad (pretty sure it was not there the first time) - that worked.  Muting the volume on the ad worked for about 10 seconds, then it would start over again (at full volume).  As far as I could ever find, there was no way to simply turn off the ad, and it ran over and over and over again.  It was NOT the ad that was directly preceding your show coming up, so it might have been some weird spillover from Ustream.

As far as I could tell from the portions I actually caught, good interviews.  I may try the archives tomorrow to try to see what I missed!

(On my screen, the ad that kept playing was over on the right, while Hoopsville was on the left, so not sure whether they were even related or was a d3hoops.com problem?)

For those interested, there is a special Hoopsville Podcast surrounding the decision to move the 2013 men's championship game to Atlanta as part of the D1 Final Four to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of basketball in the NCAA.

The podcast is an extensive interview with Dan Dutcher, Vice President for Division III, who answered many questions many of you probably would have and talked about how the decision was made and some of the details for fans, coaches, players, and schools who may be involved.

You can find the interview here: http://www.d3hoops.com/notables/2012/05/dutcher-interview-2013-title-game (http://www.d3hoops.com/notables/2012/05/dutcher-interview-2013-title-game)

Title: Re: Hoopsville: Division III Basketball's Talk Show
Post by: Dave 'd-mac' McHugh on July 27, 2012, 11:32:50 am
I did see it... will see if I can get that in there... remember that in '13-'14 the new "all games count" as long as you play 70% in your region comes into affect, so I don't think a lot of other changes would take place. Also, I have indications that the work to realign regions across all sports in Division III will be complete for '13-'14 and that could also have some impacts. I will be honest that I am not sure how much Mike will know about the 200 mile rule... but I can try and ask (that being said, something like conferences along side one another in different regions counting as region games sounds like a stretch in getting approved).

Hey... guess what?! Hoopsville will tip off the basketball season on the first night of the basketball season! Join us Thursday night from 7 - 9 PM EST at www.d3hoopsville.com (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) as we talked to the two preseason #1 teams... Brett Adams about the upcoming Hoopsville National Invitational Classic (http://www.d3hoops.com/notables/2012/09/hoopsville-classic-introduction) (you will be coming to the games or watching from home, right?)... Lehman about the fact their season will not start or go according to plan due to the devastation and recovery from Hurricane Sandy... and Pat Coleman about the questions we all have for this season!

And as we get ready to tip things off, there is a wonderful story written by D3sports.com's Brian Falzarano to follow up on Goucher's Damon Brooks (http://www.d3hoops.com/notables/2012/05/goucher-player-paralyzed). You will remember he became a quadriplegic thanks to a freak accident one April morning in his dormitory. Brian tells a great story about Brian's recovery so far, his incredible spirit, and why despite it all... Damon is looking forward to watching basketball in person this weekend.

Please give the story a read... it is worth it and will probably give us all some perspective as the season begins:

Hoopsville tonight, 7 - 9 PM EST at www.d3hoopsville.com (http://www.d3hoopsville.com).

We chat with Rhode Island College MBB coach Bob Walsh ahead of his team's big game against #1 MIT. We also chat with the new #1 women's team in the country, DePauw. What about the defending champs? We talk to coach Pat Miller of UW-Whitewater right off their big win over Illinois Wesleyan. We also talk to the School of the Week, Christopher Newport who have started the season strong. And we chat with NJAC Commissioner Terry Small about the ramifications with the fact the NCAA has decided no school or event will be hosted in the state of New Jersey due to their gambling laws - that will have major impact on the NCAA basketball tournaments.

And finally, a rant. We take a look at the 138 points scored by Jack Taylor of Grinnell. What was the point?

The Concordia-Texas system is similar to the McMurry system from the 1998-2001 era!  It is a defense oriented system!

This is the strongest CTX team yet!  Once he gets the system rolling, he will get some great players!  It is lots of fun to watch!

Coach Bonewitz at CTX and Coach Russell Van Landingham, who was Ron Holmes' Assistant during the 1998-2001 era, are first cousins.  Coach Van Landingham is at NAIA Our Lady of the Lake in San Antonio.  That style of play is a "family thing". Coach Bonewitz and Coach Van Landingham even have the same hair style.

My question is the same question I have every time. Exactly how much leeway do the the RAC get when interpreting the numbers of the primary criteria?

We've heard two different stories in the past. A few years ago it was "well the coaches in the RAC are there because they know the region and they're having basketball conversations and looking inside the numbers". Last year, it seemed, it was more "well we're tied to the criteria" (and we all know which team I'll cite as the example).

If it's #1, that's fine, but why didn't it work last year? If it's #2, that's fine, but why are college basketball coaches deemed best suited to interpret statistical data?

Other questions:

Can we please kill off Once Ranked Always Ranked?
Can we please release the data for the final rankings?
Can we please properly calculate SOS?

I have a feeling I can at least give you a heads up on some of these answers, but I will present some of them to the committee chair as well:

If it's #1, that's fine, but why didn't it work last year? If it's #2, that's fine, but why are college basketball coaches deemed best suited to interpret statistical data?

First, when it was a vote on the phone they tended to let the RACs vote, however the national committee did have the rights to go back to the RACs and say we don't agree and here are the reasons. We have talked about this often.

Second, two seasons ago the NCAA went to a "private" voting method. There would be a discussion on the phone, but then each RAC member would get off the phone and vote. The idea was that those whose arguments were being drowned out could still vote how they believed and not get steamed rolled into an opinion because more vocal members deemed it so. The problem this caused was RACs were very inconsistent across the country and even the RAC chairs (members of the national committee) wouldn't know how to "argue" their RACs vote when the results would surprise even them. The add to this misery, the national committee was not allowed to tweak RAC rankings or even advise why they had a problem until the very last ranking of the season - which we don't see.

Last year, some of that changed and I think you so that in the "use the criteria" mentality. You have administrators that may not know the region as well as the coaches (RACs and the national committee can not be made up of all coaches, it has to be a 50/50 split - though there are creative ways around that) and with an online ballot system now in place, the national committee wanted to make sure all of its RACs and its members were on the same page. This resulted in a more "criteria only" based rankings. It also avoids "old boys networks" and the like.

Take it for what it is... but I highly suspect the criteria only system is also what the NCAA mandates so that there are clear reasons for rankings and selections. Getting into "grey area" is what only causes more problems, especially when the NCAA preaches, though doesn't necessarily abide by, transparency.

Other questions:

Can we please kill off Once Ranked Always Ranked?

There is an effort, I think, to tweek (not twerk) this. I don't remember the details... but if it isn't happening then I am imaging it or in conversations on how to change the system that was a strong part of the conversation. For some reasons "twice ranked, always ranked" is in my head... but again, could be just from conversations and implementation. I do know that the football guide does not say "once ranked, always ranked" which adds to my reasoning. Again... this will certainly be a question I tackle.

Other questions:

Can we please release the data for the final rankings?

The men's basketball committee has been at the forefront of this for years. They want the data and the final rankings released - no questions about it. This is also why I got my hands on the final regional rankings last year. They want the transparency. They don't like the hidden nature of keeping those rankings quiet. However, there have been other committees... and from what I believe a minority... that have been against this. My gut tells me the old guard on the women's side has been part of this - but that is completely a gut feeling. However, things appear to be changing on the women's side (more on that in the future) and maybe this will change as well (I don't know who the minority are... I never get that answer when asked). But again, the men's basketball committee is told by the NCAA they can't release it and since the NCAA actually releases the information... they can't do much about it except leak the info.

Other questions:

Can we please properly calculate SOS?

This is certainly a topic of conversation for me. I know the men's basketball committee was not happy with how this transpired and it was a major topic for them after the season concluded... however, I have not gotten to the bottom of what if anything has changed. However, you can bet that will be one of the questions I will be asking for many people involved :).

Quickly back to your point about your rooting interests... I do want to point out that I have talked to that team's head coach many times and he has never complained about the process... both on the air and off. He has repeatedly pointed out that he understands the scenario and realizes the challenge of their situation. I will also say that I have noticed a marked change with many schools not only with the two in Michigan, but elsewhere, that the message is clear... schedule better to the best of your abilities... and I think that is starting to really take shape this year. That is a topic of a "rant" (though, I won't be complaining) on a Hoopsville episode in the near future.

Thanks, KnightSlappy, for the questions. I will ask them accordingly tomorrow (Friday) ahead of next Thursday's show. If anyone has any other questions for the men's committee chair (I tape an interview on Friday) or the women's committee chair... PLEASE email, tweet, Facebook, add to this thread, etc. so we can ask them.

THanks.

Dave,
  With the new item this year that all games count if at least 70% are D3, (1)does that mean that the regional rankings will be according to the all games criteria instead of the in-region criteria, and (2) which D3 teams will not be achieving the 70% criteria?

I read earlier on the MIAA men's board that a new rule is being adopted next year for all of D3.  They are changing the in-region mileage rule from 200 miles to 500 miles.  Is this correct?

I have heard nothing about this and honestly it wouldn't make any sense. The geographic regions and the administrative regions provide a lot of opportunities for regional games for a vast majority of D3 teams. 500 miles doesn't sound like something the presidents would be in favor of considering their stand on a number of other issues. 500 miles is only used in the tournaments to determine bus or airplane.

Anything that helps the island teams or those backed into a corner like the Michigan schools is fine with me. I prefer "adjacent states" but for 97% of Division III, this is a paperwork move only with no change to how we operate.

Just a head's up... the sit-down interview with the committee chair yesterday (Friday) ended up being postponed. Car trouble kept him from getting to the shoot. We will either find another time early this coming week... or do it live on Thursday night's season debut of Hoopsville!

So... keep the questions coming for the men's and women's basketball committee chairs.

As I understand it, the 200 mile rule won't change. Rather, teams will be exempted five games up to 500 miles.

So it will still be a 200 mile rule but becomes a 500 mile rule for up to five games if necessary.

Then my follow-up, as always, is why not go to a hard formula that combines WP, SOS, RvRRO, etc. into a single-number for selection purposes.

Either you can read into the numbers or you can't. Either the regions are supposed to combine/weigh the criteria differently or they aren't.

Dave,
  I see that TCNJ is hosting a women's NCAA soccer regional this weekend. Does this mean that the NCAA ban on NJ schools hosting NCAA competition at home has ended?
Title: Re: Hoopsville: Division III Basketball's Talk Show
Post by: Dave 'd-mac' McHugh on November 12, 2013, 11:43:36 pm
ronk - it ended last March when a federal court ruled against New Jersey and for the NCAA, NBA, NFL, NHL, etc. It happened I think the Friday of the first weekend of the NCAA tournament or the Monday following. I know there was an effort on the women's side of things (since they where the only ones left with a New Jersey school still in the tournaments) to have them host... but it didn't matter as the criteria didn't allow for them to host (geography was the criteria in play). Now, if New Jersey were to appeal the decision... I have been told the NCAA will not bring the ban back UNLESS a court rules in favor of New Jersey... and if that were to happen the case is headed to the Supreme Court.

Knightslappy... I am not going to go around and around because you never seem to like any answer even if they were to give you a hard and fast number. I appreciate your passion for this, but to some extent I feel you can't see the progress that has taken shape over the years and how the system is far better than it was even a decade ago.

I can say this, the criteria is used in all sports in the NCAA (except ones like Cross Country, Track and Field, etc. that have specific measurements to attain), but not all sports are equal in how the criteria can be implemented. Heck, even in a sport the criteria is going to be different per a team's schedule outside of their conference. For example, a football team that only has one out of conference game versus a team that may have three or so are going to have very different hard and fast number you are looking for probably benefiting the team with less conference games. Same in basketball, a team from a smaller conference or conference schedule will probably benefit more because they can schedule more games out of the conference to sway a hard and fast number.

Do you really want to implement a a BCS type system? They are getting rid of that because it is a joke.

The idea of the criteria is it gives the committees plenty of data and points of reference when making decisions, especially head-to-head ones. The committee can decide how to read into an SOS difference of .005 or decide if that is a wash. The committee can take other data like head-to-head and results versus regionally ranked opponents and understand the meaning of that data. Yes, they are following the criteria, but they are using their heads to make the best decisions. They aren't looking at a computer generated number that has been based on an algorithm that doesn't understand a certain team has less conference games swaying their number than another team.

I prefer the committee being able to make decisions... and this soccer season I saw my latest example of why that isn't a bad thing. I know a school that was frustrated that the national committee overruled the RAC and moved said team behind another team. I took a look at the data that was last available from the previous week and the team in question trailed in regional record and had an advantage in SOS of less than .005 I believe. Their RvRRO was also similiar, but the team in question had a lot more losses. These two teams did meet in the conference tournament and said team beat the second team... giving the two teams an head-to-head of 1-1. But, it wasn't going to change the SOS numbers that much and the regional records still were to the advantage of the second team. The team in question who was disappointed they weren't in the tournament because they got put behind the other team wanted the fact they beat the team in the tournament to mean more than any of the other data... even though the criteria stated otherwise. Sure... was it a tough break? Yes. But as I said to them and I say it every year... the game at the beginning of a season means the same as a game at the end of the season. If the criteria isn't there... they maybe unjustly get into the tournament.

We know the criteria and I think the men's committee over the last few years - maybe even five - has done an outstanding job with it and as a result picking the national tournament. We have less and less problems with who is getting in and who is hosting (last year aside as it was craziness with how the tournament was structured on short notice). Yes, the committees are told to use the criteria to make their decisions... but they are allowed to look at the criteria and make a decision. The idea that they should vote "knowing their region" is an ode to the "old boys network" that caused so many more problems than we have time to discuss.

And per all of that... there are once again tweaks that have been made to the criteria to try and give these committees even more information to work with. Again, I plan to ask many of the questions you have asked... but to your point of a single algorithm that will solve all... I again point out that the BCS hasn't solved a thing and what is good in one sport will not be good in the rest.
Title: Re: Hoopsville: Division III Basketball's Talk Show
Post by: KnightSlappy on November 13, 2013, 09:21:16 am
The problem with the BCS for so many years was:

(1) That it only selected two teams to play for the championship - not relevant here.
(2) That the human poll(s) carry so much weight and are affected by preseason ranking/perception all year.
(3) That the computer models/formulae were, for the most part, proprietary and therefore not transparent.

to some extent I feel you can't see the progress that has taken shape over the years and how the system is far better than it was even a decade ago.

The system is purported to be far better, but it wasn't executed better last season. I thought it WAS better, but then the SOS got mucked up so badly, and we really haven't seen any year-to-year, region-to-region consistency with the voting styles -- probably because the committees / chairs have to change so frequently.

Same in basketball, a team from a smaller conference or conference schedule will probably benefit more because they can schedule more games out of the conference to sway a hard and fast number.

Their SOS would be more variable, yes, but it's not true that it would be an obvious benefit. It could just as easily swing their number down further. But either way, this is quite clearly something a computer model could handle, and handle better/more consistently than humans. Because without a clear system in place, humans could not possibly apply these sorts of adjustments evenly across the board.

The idea of the criteria is it gives the committees plenty of data and points of reference when making decisions, especially head-to-head ones. The committee can decide how to read into an SOS difference of .005 or decide if that is a wash. The committee can take other data like head-to-head and results versus regionally ranked opponents and understand the meaning of that data. Yes, they are following the criteria, but they are using their heads to make the best decisions. They aren't looking at a computer generated number that has been based on an algorithm that doesn't understand a certain team has less conference games swaying their number than another team.

Why couldn't a computer model understand that bolded part? All of this is stuff a computer could quite easily handle. Whatever is deemed important, whatever variables need to be accounted for, build them into the model.

I prefer the committee being able to make decisions... and this soccer season I saw my latest example of why that isn't a bad thing. I know a school that was frustrated that the national committee overruled the RAC and moved said team behind another team...

Sure... was it a tough break? Yes. But as I said to them and I say it every year... the game at the beginning of a season means the same as a game at the end of the season. If the criteria isn't there... they maybe unjustly get into the tournament.

Why would a computer system not have the criteria?

I haven't necessarily had a problem with the criteria -- besides RvRRO (double counting and arbitrary endpoints) and "once ranked always ranked" (which isn't actually a criterion, just a method) -- my problem is that once the criteria has been established, humans CANNOT possibly apply them fairly and evenly (even accounting for these things like number of conference games and travel restrictions and every other variable that a computer could also account for) across the board without a hard-and-fast way of doing it.  Humans WILL, intentionally or not, introduce their biases into the vote.

To your soccer example, a one-number system would have clearly shown that the national committee was correct in overruling the RAC. There needn't have been a controversy here!

--------

I wouldn't even, as a starting point, go so far as saying that a one-number system needs to be a be-all-end-all, end-of-story selection process either. If two teams are extremely close, then have some of those discussions, review the schedules, and maybe look at how to break the tie. At the very least, a one-number system would free up the committee members' time to discuss and debate the merits of various bubble teams instead of on-the-spot trying to determine and weigh things like schedule restraints.

I think Pat's objection is the best one: that we can't trust the NCAA to do a good job in coming up with the system. But that would be bad on the NCAA because all they would need to do is ask for help. I'm sure there are plenty of smart(er than me) people who would be willing to discuss the theory and design and present systems to aid the NCAA for free.

Dave -- loved the interviews thanks!

On the SOS issue: it's not so much that the SOS is wiped out altogether, it's more that it's scaling the relative importance of home and away games in a wonky and unintended way. There is currently a multiplier effect, it's just really, really bad.

Opponent A: (Home) 15-5 (.75 mult) = 15x0.75, 5x.75 = an 'effective' 11.3-3.8 record.
Opponent B: (Home) 5-15 (.75 mult) = 5x.75, 15x.75 = an 'effective' 3.8-11.3 record.

In this case the multiplier would be wiped out because they're all 0.75. This schedule would read as having a .500 OWP (effectively 15-15). (This would also be the same if they were all road games and had the 1.25 multiplier, a .500 schedule).

But what if, in the example above, the second game was on the road?

Opponent A: (Home) 15-5 (.75 mult) = 15x0.75, 5x.75 = an 'effective' 11.3-3.8 record.
Opponent B: (Away) 5-15 (1.25 mult) = 5x1.25, 15x1.25 = an 'effective' 6.3-18.8 record.

In this case, the OWP would be effectively 17.5-22.5 for a .438 OWP. All we did was change a home game to a road game and the schedule got 'easier'.

(Using the same two-team example, an all road schedule would read as an OWP of .500, but moving the game vs. the 5-15 team to a home game would make the OWP read as .563).

I write this not to correct you, but because it seems the NCAA / committee members don't even know what the issue is besides that some people are questioning it.

What they need to do to fix it is go back to making each game's OWP a percentage (.750 and .250 in this case), then used the HAM against those percentages, and then average the resulting percentages.

Yes, Dave, very good interview. Definitely the best answer to date regarding the interpretation of "results versus regionally ranked."

Also got a very good feel for the struggle between the committee and the office in Indy.

 Dave, you had an interesting interview with Dickinson Coach Seretti tonight; he was more informed about the Mid-Atlantic than I was expecting of a head coach and then we found out the reason-he's the Mid-Atlantic RAC member. So, I recommend your future shows have a couple of RAC members under the guise of being interested in their teams but also asking questions about regional rankings, tourney team selections, hosting, etc. ;)

HOOPSVILLE TO HOST 12 HOUR MARATHON OF HOOPS
www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2013-14/hoopsville-marathon (http://www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2013-14/hoopsville-marathon)

HUNT VALLEY, Md. – Similar to the day-long hoops marathon that starts the Division I basketball season, fans of Division III basketball will be able to digest 12 hours of wall-to-wall Division III basketball on Thursday, Jan. 30 as host Dave McHugh runs a super-sized edition of Hoopsville.

Hoopsville, the premier show for everything related to Division III basketball, will go from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. ET on Thursday to celebrate Division III basketball. It will be the perfect way to gear up for the last month of the regular season and start to look ahead to conference races and the NCAA tournament. Viewers can catch the show by visiting www.d3hoopsville.com (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) and can interact with McHugh on Twitter (@d3hoopsville (http://www.twitter.com/d3hoopsville)) or by visiting the show’s Facebook page (facebook.com/hoopsville (http://www.facebook.com/Hoopsville)). You can also email McHugh at dave.mchugh@d3sports.com.

“We will have guests on from around the country and schools we may not normally talk with,” said host McHugh. “We will also hear from those who care passionately about Division III basketball and those who may have moved up in their careers, but have strong roots in Division III.”

This super-sized show is being held in conjunction with a fundraising effort to help the show, which has been a staple at the Championship Weekend in Salem. Now in its 11th season, the show is looking to raise around $10,000 to help with gear and equipment that needs to be replaced. In addition, the show is looking to try to upgrade the experience for the fans, including better cameras, a better streaming partner and a studio overhaul to allow better productions.

“Hoopsville is the best source for what is going on in Division III basketball,” said James Wagner, Ursinus College Director of Athletic Communications. “Dave has done a great job promoting our program, as well as various programs throughout Division III. It’s wonderful to have someone as dedicated to our sport and professional as Dave.”

Those wishing to contribute can do so by visiting the fundraising page at www.indiegogo.com/projects/hoopsville-fundraising-project (http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/hoopsville-fundraising-project). There are several levels, starting at ten dollars all the way up to $250. While there are several levels, any and all donations will be accepted.

“This show has become more than just something I enjoy doing,” McHugh added. “We know people look forward to hearing from coaches, players, administrators and others around the country and talking Division III basketball. We want to continue doing the show and making an impact on the sport.”

BTW, D-Mac, I heard you say that you might use some of the funds to travel to other regions to do Hoopsville coverage next season. If you happen to return to your hometown and you're there on a North Park game night, stop by the crackerbox and I'll kick my usual partner off the air and let you do color.

Dave,
  Here's an idea for tonight's show,
     In the Landmark men's side, if MMA loses Saturday, there's a possibility of as much as a 4-way(including Goucher) tie for 4th seed; only the Juniata-Drew loser would necessarily be eliminated. It may come down to a(many) coin flip(s); the Landmark commissioner(Goucher) would have to conduct the coin flip or recuse himself(since Goucher could be involved-then we would need tiebreakers among the eliminated to decide who conducts the coin flip). What does the commish say about this; Hoopsville's entire show Sunday could be a videostream of the coin flips ;D.
     I guess I have too much time on my hands, but I love the possibilities.
Title: Re: Hoopsville: Division III Basketball's Talk Show
Post by: Dave 'd-mac' McHugh on February 20, 2014, 12:01:28 pm
Well the assertion that the conference commissioner is a Goucher person is hopefully tongue-and-cheek. He may be located on the Goucher campus (actually, he is across the street from the campus - not on the actual campus) and many if not all conference offices in Division III are located on a college campus.

As for the ... not bad... just not tonight's! :) By the way, we posted the tie-breaking procedure in the Landmark page... I doubt it will get down to a coin flip since they have thought out their tie-breakers and have more steps than any other conference I have ever read.

 Ok, I had heard earlier in the year that he had some connection with Goucher; if it's only a physical neighborhood connection, no problem.

Um... he used to work in the NESCAC front office... there is no connection to Goucher. Maybe people should do their research first.

Dave,
  When u talk with the NCAA tourney heads soon, please ask them to affirm that there's a procedure in place to notify the opposite gender that a potential host for both genders is(not) being selected to host for the priority side(1st weekend-men notifying women; 2nd weekend vice/versa), so that we don't have that problem repeated from a past tourney where the non-priority side doesn't know that a hosting capability is still possible.
Title: Re: Hoopsville: Division III Basketball's Talk Show
Post by: Dave 'd-mac' McHugh on February 23, 2014, 05:53:45 pm
Well... there are procedures in place and the one time it took place where a men's team was screwed out of hosting was actually a miscommunication... not a lack of actually knowing. There had been discussions leading up to and on the day of selections and bracketing about that conflict and the men were informed the women would have Randolph-Macon host. The women then changed their minds, but in a moment of whatever did not go back to tell the men they had changed their mind. The men found out when we told them of the screw-up.

So, it isn't that these groups don't know about the priorities and don't know of the potential, it was one time in recent memory and it was based on a change of opinion on a host that wasn't then relayed like it was supposed to be (especially since that information had been relayed back and forth leading up to that point).

thanks, I didn't remember it happening that way, so it looks like it won't be a concern this year.

Post by: Dave 'd-mac' McHugh on February 23, 2014, 07:58:36 pm
Yep... trust me... there were plenty of conversations about that screw up... but it wasn't because the women didn't know the "rule."

Probably impossible to get a committee member on record, but I think it would be interesting to have one rank each fiction team in the following three regions number 1-4 (ties OK), given WP / SOS (assuming all other criteria are equal).

Region 1
0.8000   /   0.5000
0.7500   /   0.5167
0.7000   /   0.5333
0.6500   /   0.5500

Region 2
0.8000   /   0.5000
0.7500   /   0.5250
0.7000   /   0.5500
0.6500   /   0.5750

Region 3
0.8000   /   0.5000
0.7500   /   0.5500
0.7000   /   0.6000
0.6500   /   0.6500

Maybe I'll set up a Google form and ask board members their opinion on something like this. It's interesting to me to see how people view WP and SOS together.

I realize not as many people seem to check this thread as the work probably says I should do here, but since the 13th season of Hoopsville debuts tonight... I figured I would post.

"The off-season is over. The basketball season has arrived, but it can't start without Hoopsville hitting the air! Tune in tonight as Dave talks to the two preseason number one teams, touches base with a major coaching change, checks in with the men's basketball National Committee chair, and previews the Northeast Region.

I just submitted it to iTunes (again - I swear I did this last year and it went no where) and it seemed to go through with no problems. I will keep an eye out to see when it posts. In the meantime, I am reading up more on the RSS and such to see if I can add links to the Hoopsville home page for SoundCloud and iTunes podcast information.

Thank you for at least pointing me in the right direction, a direction I thought I had gone in last year and ran into a brick wall instead. I will update you when I get more information!

Hello? Is this thing on? Anyone here... reading this? Don't make me disconnect the podcast RSS and iTunes connections to get you guys to speak up again! LOL

Nearly three weeks into the college basketball season and there is plenty to talk about. Conference action is also starting for many programs while others are still getting up to speed in their out-of-conference schedules. On the women's side, not a lot of upsets; on the men's side, no one seems safe to an unforeseen loss. Tonight on Hoopsville, Dave talks to several teams who are still working off last season's success and battling expectations this season and others who may quietly change the conversation in their regions.

Title: Re: Hoopsville: Division III Basketball's Talk Show
Post by: Dave 'd-mac' McHugh on January 07, 2016, 02:56:09 pm
We are back to our normal Sunday and Thursday Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) shows tonight! Now that we are getting back into our routine, we get back into the habit of featuring the East, Mid-Atlantic, Great Lakes, and West Regions on Thursday night shows (Northeast, Atlantic, Central, and South Regions on Sunday nights). Tonight, Dave McHugh talks with coaches who are succeeding so far this season thanks to a bit of a youth movement. How those squads are either exceeding early expectations or reloading pretty nicely. Dave also gets an assist from Pat Coleman to help cover the much anticipated men's basketball game between No. 1 Augustana at No. 5 Elmhurst which needed overtime to be decided. And Dave talks about the latest Hoopsville partner - the WBCA. With the WBCA coming onboard with the NABC there needed to be some branding changes. You will hear the change almost immediately.

Watch Hoopsville tonight at 7pm ET: www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2015-16/jan7 (http://www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2015-16/jan3) - a show that had to be pre-recorded tonight due to other commitments.

Guests and/or topics include (in order):
- Pat Coleman, coverage of No. 1 Augie vs. No. 5 Blue Jays
- Ron Rohn, No. 10 Muhlenberg women's coach
- Lindsay Goldblatt, Cal Lutheran women's coach
- Fajri Ansari, Buffalo State men's coach

It isn't easy to coach at any level. It is a joy to coach Division III says many a coach. Some enjoy it on their way up the ladder, others on their way closer to retirement, and others as their passion.

Tonight on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) we talk to many coaches in different aspects of their careers with varying teams who are succeeding on the court and off of it because of what coaching has taught them including facing the challenges no one should face especially off the court.

Hoopsville hits the air tonight at 7:00 pm ET with a jam packed show. Talking to programs who are leading their conferences or in the hunt facing the challenge that not everyone expect them to be competitive.

They are taking care of their team after a horrific circumstance of a player's murder or looking out of their own battling cancer.

Due to the fact the Blizzard that hit my region dumped three-feet of snow in our area... snow I have been shoveling in some capacity still today (cleared our deck - took two hours)... we are postponing the annual Hoopsville Marathon Show until NEXT week. It was originally scheduled to air this Thursday starting at 10am ET, but instead we will air a normal 7pm ET show this week and gear up for our Marathon show next week.

This will allow us more time to promote the show along with booking guests which had taken a major backseat to shoveling, caring for the house and family, and other items like rescheduled work due to the storm.

I hope you understand and I hope everyone will joins us for some, if not all, of the show next week.

Don't forget to follow us on Facebook (http://www.facebook/com/hoopsville), Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/d3hoopsville) (including #Hoopsville), and on our website (http://www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville) for more information.

Thank you.

Great show yesterday. I was off yesterday so I got to hear a lot of the show. The interview with Sydney Moss was great on the D3 experience and its difference to D1, the story of John Baron's family situation is just heart wrenching and the Happy hour was truly entertaining. Thanks again.  :)

Regional rankings are finally out and with them comes plenty of upheaval around the country. What do the rankings really mean? What teams should everyone be watching this week? Who is jockeying to lock up their conference's regular season title?

On Thursday night's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave McHugh hopes to get a lot of these questions answered. McHugh will talk to coaches from around the country who have their teams poised to capture conference crowns or at while also positioning themselves the best they can in the regional rankings.

Hoopsville is on the air NOW, but you can also watch it On Demand or listen to the podcasts (when the show is done) here: www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2015-16/feb11

It might be a holiday for those romantically inclined, but it is also getting down to the end of the Division III basketball season. Just two weeks remain between now and the end of the regular season and nothing has been determined.

On Sunday night's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave McHugh will talk to some teams who have emerged from no where to be in a position to surprise when their conference tournaments begin.

There isn't that much time left in the regular season as teams continue to fight to get into conference tournaments and position themselves for hopefully NCAA tournament bids.

Plus, get a preview of the NESCAC men's and women's tournaments along with talking to ranked teams on both the men's and women's side.

The entire regular season has basically come down to this week: Championship Week.

Almost all conferences will determine their automatic bids to the NCAA tournament via their own tournaments. Those that haven't started already, will begin soon. And in a matter of a week, 87 teams on the men's and women's sides will know they are headed to the NCAA tournament.

Sunday night on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave McHugh talks to some of the teams who hope home court will be their ticket to the NCAA post-season play. Each of the teams featured tonight won their regular season conference titles and need to win their conference tournaments to get into the NCAA tournament.

The opening day of the 2015-16 basketball season started with a bang.

Tonight on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), continuing coverage of the fallout of that decision including an exclusive one-on-one interview with Coach Jeff Hans of Thomas More.

Surprise! Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) is already On the Road this season, but in rather familiar territory: the Roanoke Valley.

Dave was already in Salem, Virginia for the Division III soccer championships, so why to check out the newest gymnasium in D3?!

Hoopsville will air shortly after the Virginia Wesleyan-Roanoke men's game. At halftime of the game, the court will be dedicated to former Roanoke coach Charlie Moir, the father of former Roanoke Coach Page Moir.

Today's special show will feature interviews with Roanoke coach Clay Nunley, Carey Harveycutter, and others.

Dave will also take a look at the first week's Top 25 and ahead to Week 2's poll.

The season has started fast and for some teams they still haven't lost. Not unexpected for some, maybe completely unexpected for others.

And there is a big battle between #1 and #2 in Division III men's basketball on tap!

On Thursday's edition of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave is back in studio and talking to some of the teams who find themselves without a loss, but probably still with plenty of questions that remain unanswered. Many of the teams are nationally ranked, but one of the teams tonight finds itself undefeated and receiving narry a point in any of the Division III polls.

Also on Thursday's edition, Dave will talk LIVE with either #1 Amherst or #2 Babson. The two men's programs face off in a rare #1 v #2 regular season battle. We chat with the winning coach after the game.

You can watch Hoopsville below staring at 7:00 pm ET. We are also experimenting with simulcasting the show on Facebook Live! More info here: http://www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2016-17/dec8

Guests included (in order):
- Bob Amsberry, No. 8 Wartburg women's coach
- Amy Reed, Rochester Tech women's coach
- Landry Kosmalski, No. 22 Swarthmore men's coach
- Jon VanderWal, No. 3 Marietta men's coach
- Either Dave Hixon (No. 1 Amherst) or Stephen Brennan (No. 2 Banson) men's coach

This is most likley the last Thursday edition of Hoopsville before the holiday break (due to D3football.com coverage of Gagliardi Trophy and Stagg Bowl next week and proximity of Christmas the following week). The Thursday edition of the show will return January 5, 2017 - but stay tuned if we change our minds in two weeks.

I didn't get a chance to post this prior to Hoopsville hitting the air Sunday night. I apologize. Was trying to finish up some holiday items around the house and spend some time with the family.

The advantage, Hoopsville is available On Demand and via podcast:

This might be one of the toughest parts of the Division III season. Balancing finals, time off, and starting to get into a groove with the basketball season which then is disrupted by a break. Some teams are caught looking ahead, some are worn out or distracted, others are simply cruising along.

On Sunday night's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave will talk to several teams who are not only off to good starts, but also discovering some of the bumps in the road a third of the way into the season.

You can watch the Hoopsville archive or listen to the podcast here: www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2016-17/dec11

It is also the First Semester Finale of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) which will be off the air for the holidays returning on Thursday, January 5, 2017.

The Division III basketball season is back from the holiday "break" - though not much of a break for many of the teams - and with the start of the 2017 part of the schedule comes plenty to talk about. Upsets in the men's Top 25 and the shocking news at out UW-Stevens Point.

Thursday night on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave McHugh tries to get everything wrapped up in the discarded Christmas wrapping left behind. Bob Semling suspended, Geneseo women deal with another tragedy, Top 25 teams sputtering as conference season heats up, and teams trying to make an impact from under the radar.\

As the season continues to march along, we continue to see more and more twists. There aren't many more answers despite being about halfway through the season.

Sunday night on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave continues the coverage of the UWSP investigation and punishments. Athletics Director Brad Duckworth will join the show to discuss everything that lead up to the decision to suspend Bob Semling the rest of the season and why they handed the program over to Kent Dernbach.

Also tonight, the WBCA Center Court segment makes its season debut. The first guest this season will be Emory women's coach Christy Thomascutty.

Post by: Dave 'd-mac' McHugh on January 13, 2017, 12:27:30 am
Usually I make sure to alert people of who is on Hoopsville prior to the show. Unfortunately, Thursday was a challenge production wise and I was a bit distracted. So, I hope you don't mind finding out after the fact considering you can watch the show On Demand or listen to the podcast(s).

As the season turns from the first to the second half, we are starting to see which teams are doing more than just getting off to good starts. Now conference races are starting to take shape and we get an idea of how the rest of the season may play out.

On Thursday's edition of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave chatted with several coaches whose teams are either leading their conferences or in the battle for first place. Are these teams going to still be near the top come late February? What do they have to do to maintain their level of success. Dave even hit the road to Washington, DC to chat with several of his guests.

Dave also talked to a coach who now has the second-most wins in Division III history. Wooster's Steve Moore won his 787th (700th at Wooster) Wednesday night. Moore joined Dave in the NABC Coach's Corner to discuss the incredible milestone and all the milestones along the way.

You can watch Hoopsville On Demand or listen to the podcast by downloading it from SoundCloud and iTunes by clicking here: http://www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2016-17/jan12

Guest appearances (in order):
- Steve Moore, Wooster men's coach - NABC Coach's Corner
- Kevin Kovacs, Gallaudet men's coach

The saying in the NFL is: "on any given Sunday." The idea being that anyone can win a game no matter the match up because, well, things happen. The same could be true in Division III basketball. On any given night, someone will pull off an upset. And in some weeks we see multiple upsets.

What to make of it all? Tune into Sunday's edition of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) as Dave tries to make sense of most of it with guests from around the country who can provide their insight.

Also on tap for tonight, can Amherst women run the table? What to make of William Peace men's basketball. And why one coach is highly regarded in the Chinese-American culture.

Tune in starting at 7:00 PM ET here: http://www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2016-17/jan15 - or via Facebook Live. If you can't watch the show live, you can catch up On Demand once it is off the air or download the podcast via SoundCloud or iTunes.

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 (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), 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.

On almost any night you can expect there is something to talk about in Division III basketball. From upsets to dominating results, when thousands of games are being played there never is a moment that goes by that shouldn't be discussed.

That's what we hope to do on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) every show.

Sunday night is no different. There are plenty of upsets to discuss along with figuring out just exactly who are the best teams in the country. Sometimes that discussion means talking to those who won, those who lost, and those who are helping determine conference races.

On Sunday's show, Dave talks to several teams who are in the conversation around the country. From a men's team who ended a 72-game conference winnings streak to another men's squad whose undefeated conference run ended. Also, a women's squad who is already having the best season in four years and another being led by a man who has overcome more than most do and trying to lead by examble by staying focused despite his battled with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.

Dave will also update a few items voted on this week at the NCAA Convention that will affect basketball starting next season.

You can watch Hoopsville live or watch it on Facebook Live (simulcast):  http://www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2016-17/jan22. If you missed the show live, you can watch the video On Demand in the same manner or listen to or download the podcast (available when the show concludes).

All of the sudden the month of January is coming to a close! It wasn't that long ago we were watching how teams would perform during holiday tournaments and after long breaks. Now, we are wondering how most teams will weather the second half of conference play.

Thursday night on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave tries to take the temperature of Division III basketball. Just how good are the teams nationally ranked and near the top of some conference? Are there teams lurking who are about to emerge and disrupt things?

Of course the focus on this show will primarily be the East, Mid-Atlantic, Great Lakes, and West Regions, but there is still plenty to talk about nationwide including the common theme: upsets and parity.

Guests will include a coach who won his 400th on Wednesday, three nationally ranked teams, and seven total losses.

Dave also discusses the recently launch Hoopsville Fundraising efforts and the upcoming annual marathon show. For more information on the fundraiser, click here: https://igg.me/at/hoopsville-fundraiser-2017

Believe it or not... there is just one more month remaining in Division III basketball's regular season. In other words, time is running out for teams looking to play in March. One month from today, most conference champions will be crowned and the conversation will be who may be in and will be out of the NCAA championship tournament.

So as the season head's for the home stretch, what programs will we be talking about in a month? Who may emerge from some tight conferences races to prove they are the best?

Sunday night on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave hopes to turn the spotlight on a few programs others may not be paying attention to as much. Tufts' men's program is seperating themselves from the rest of the NESCAC, Elmhurst women are making the CCIW race more interesting than expected, LeTourneau men have turned their program around and now lead their ASC division, and Montclair State women have a battle on their hands in the NJAC.

Also on Sunday night, we head to the WBCA Center Court and talk to one of the up and coming women's basketball coaches. Already honored for his success at a young age, what has Alex Richay done to turn the Oglethorpe program around?

Dave will also preview the upcoming annual Hoopsville Marathon and give an update to this season's fundraising efforts.

The focus of Division III basketball now turns towards the second Regional Rankings. At the same time, conference regular seasons are wrapping up and the pressure of conference tournaments is increasing.

Teams are still trying to jockey themselves for the chance to keep playing in March, but sometimes focusing on March causes teams to lose focus of the next game. Upsets and trip-ups seem to happen often once Regional Rankings start coming out.

On Sunday night's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave chats with teams who are hoping to remain on top of their conference standings and thus eventually punch their ticket automatically to the NCAA tournament. But what about the distractions? What about the pressures? Or has it become somewhat routine for some teams?

The Division III season has officially entered "Crunch Time." Regular season schedules are wrapping up, conference tournaments are about to begin, teams are jockeying for conference position or trying to win home-court advantage. And it is all happening the uncertainty of whether NCAA tournament berths are available for a lot of teams.

On Thursday night's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave McHugh not only takes another look at this week's Regional Rankings, but also tries to read the tea leaves. He also chats with four teams that all still have something to play for. Whether it is to better position themselves in the eyes of the NCAA committees or just to turn more heads in their conference tournament, these teams are still pushing to continue their seasons.

Ran out of time today to get this out before the show started, but taking care if it now while I have the opportunity (during the show).

The time is now. Teams who want or think they should be playing in March need to get the job done now. This week all conferences, except the UAA, will dive into conference tournaments to determine who will win an automatic bid to the NCAA Championship Tournament. For those who can't win the AQ, then they have to make sure to present the best resume possible to the national committees and that means taking care of business the best they can.

Who is in and who is out? We will figure that out over the course of next week and on next week's Hoopsville Special. In the meantime on tonight's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave McHugh talks to a few teams who are looking to position themselves to be in the conversation. We also preview many of the conference races and look at who may already be in trouble when it comes to playing basketball in March.

We are midway through what is always the craziest week of the entire season. Teams are already hitting the at-large bubble and that is already popping some other team's hopes of making the NCAA tournament. Upsets are everywhere and it promises to continue.

Tonight on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave not only recaps the crazy week, but looks ahead at what might happen this weekend. Plus, Dave and others will look at the last regular season Regional Rankings and try and start reading the tea leaves. Just who may be safe and who already is in trouble on plans to be playing in March.

Dave will also talk to a few teams making waves. The Union men's program is in their first conference finals in 11 years and helping turn the East Region on its head. Plus the winner of tonight's York (Pa.) at No. 20 Salisbury men's game will join us live to talk about the game. And a few reports from varying areas along with questions from fans.

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 (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), 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.

Title: Re: Hoopsville: Division III Basketball's Talk Show
Post by: Dave 'd-mac' McHugh on March 09, 2017, 06:43:02 pm
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 (http://www.d3hoopsville.com).

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 (http://www.facebook.com/Hoopsville) 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.

Guests scheduled (in order of appearance):
- Brian Morehouse, No. 18 Hope women's coach
- Trevor Woodruff, No. 17 Scranton women's coach
- Craig Carse, Hardin-Simmons men's coach
- Ruth Sinn, No. 2 St. Thomas women's coach
- Michelle Ferenz, No. 16 Whitman women's coach

We added a third podcast just now to the preseason series. We talked to some of the "young guns" in coaching who now have their first opportunities to run their own programs.

Here from Chris McHugh at W&L, Kevin Hopkins at Muhlenberg, and Tyler Sanborn at Ferrum.

Link is the same as above (http://www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2017-18/preseason-podcasts). It is the first in the line of podcasts.

You can also enjoy the other two, the last also featuring now former WashU women's coach Nancy Fahey and now new WashU women's coach Randi Henderson.

There is plenty to talk about and  Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) is the place to find out what many of it means... if anything.

On Sunday's show, Dave will not only take a look at some of the incredible streaks that were broken. With the help of several guests, Dave will also get a look at who looked best at the Great Lakes Invitational while also talking to a few teams looking for solid seasons ahead.

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 (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), 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.

I listened to part of the podcast this morning. Thank you Pat for the 20 years you've put in to making this sight as something I follow regularly during the off-season and several times a day during the season. Dave thanks for your work on Hoopsville. Certainly learned a lot more about D3Hoops in that interview. I'll be on this sight 10 years in March and your guys tireless work in promoting Division 3 athletics is really appreciated. Believe me I've gotten more addicted to college sports(d3) because of this sight. Thank you!!!!

It is the time of the season when managing practices and games around finals and soon-to-be holiday breaks can be difficult, especially as most conferences have begun in-conference games while there are still non-conference battles on tap.

On Thursday's edition of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave chats with a number of coaches who have had significant starts to the season, but are now managing their seasons. How are the highs and lows massaged and how to keep student-athletes focused not only on their studies (and finals), but also the game.

Results at this time of the year will be a factor come the end of the season.

Dave will also discuss, and update if able, the breaking news out of St. Norbert where the women's basketball team has been suspended ten games due to a number of players' actions.

First semester finals may have started, or about to start, but that hasn't stopped the action on the hardcourt from being formidable. Even the first winter storm of the season didn't stop the games on the East Coast.

On Sunday night's episode of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave tries not to scratch his hair (out) as he and guests try and decipher the action of the past few nights and week. While the women seem to have settled in this week, the men's side continues to produce results that make things more complicated. Are there any great teams in Division III?

It just may be too early, still, to really know.

The basketball season always experiences a lull a month after starting the season. It is one of just a few sports that experiences the ups and downs of scheduling. With finals complete and students headed home for the holidays, teams are left to either take a very long stretch of time off as well or find a way to stay active.

Sunday night on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave chats with a few coaches whose programs are at a cross-roads: finding a way to keep playing or take a break after squeezing in nearly half the season in the opening four weeks. Dave will also take a look at the Top 25 and wonder if things have settled down especially on the men's side.

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 (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) 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.

It is always an exciting and surprising point in the season. The midway point. We are already halfway through another thrilling Division III basketball season. The best part, we have plenty more basketball to come. The hard part, we are also closer to the season coming to a close.

On Thursday night's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave will try and pull out his crystal ball and read the tea leaves on who can sustain their momentum, who may fall off, and which teams could make a run to the end. While we won't have all the answers, some of Dave's guests will be able to give us their insight on their own squad's chances.

It is already the midway point of January. In a month's time, we will be looking at conference tournaments and discussing who has a chance to make the NCAA tournaments. However, there is still a lot of basketball to be played and many teams are starting to take the turn into the second half of conference play.

On Thursday's edition of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave will chat with a number of guests to get a landscape of where things are in Division III. The conversation will include checking in at the NCAA Convention where legislation will be voted on by DIII members and conferences on whether to start the season a week earlier.

Dave then talks to some of the hotter teams in the country. Two women's programs (ranked and unranked) who are leading their respective conferences and looking to build on recent success. Also two men's programs one of which is not in the spotlight as much as they traditionally are along with a program we haven't talked to in a number of years.

This week's WBCA Center Court will feature a women's coach who is doing what she can to spread the word about women's basketball including giving more of her time to make sure her colleagues are taken care of and heard.

By this point in most seasons, the usual names appear at the top of conferences races and conversations surround the usual suspects. Not the case this year. There are new names at the top, or in the mix, of conferences around the country.

That excitement is what is driving the 2017-18 season and makes any night in Division III must-watch.

On Sunday's episode of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave talks to some new face leading or in the mix in their respective conferences from four or the regions around the country. Can these teams keep their success through the end of the season or has the challenge just gotten that much more difficult as the second half of conference schedules begins.

There is also some Top 25 discussion to be had. Ryan Scott makes his weekly appearance in "Top 25 Double-take."

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch the show LIVE starting at 7:00 p.m. ET right here: http://bit.ly/2DnzrgG.

Title: Re: Hoopsville: Division III Basketball's Talk Show
Post by: Dave 'd-mac' McHugh on January 25, 2018, 04:28:24 pm
It doesn't matter what night you tune in to Division III basketball, something will surprise you. There are teams leading conferences that weren't expected to be in the conversation, there are programs who continue their record-setting starts to the season, and others who seem to be defying expectations - well, at least those outside of the locker room.

On Thursday's edition of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave chats with a few coaches who have programs currently excelling - even if they have hit some bumps in the road recently. One has his program off to the best start in a storied program's history, another is leading a conference that has it's traditional leaders off the pace a bit, a third who was never thought would be on top, and a fourth looking to try and change national minds.

There is also a coach who is doing her best to help those with communications challenges, working on diversity and inclusion, all while leading Gallaudet to bigger and better results. Stephanie Stevens is this week's WBCA Center Court guest and will talk about what drew her to the deaf and hard of hearing university and what else keeps her busy off the basketball court. Stevens was a recent honoree of the WBCA Thirty Under 30.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch the show LIVE starting at 7:00 p.m. ET here: http://bit.ly/2ndxRHj.

If you have questions for Dave or his guests, feel free to interact with the show (info to the right) or send them via email. Some may even be featured on the Hoopsville Mailbag segment. Email them to hoopsville@d3hoops.com.

Guests include (in order of appearance):
- Bob Amsberry, No. 2 Wartburg women's coach
- Amy Reed, RIT women's coach
- Stephanie Stevens, Gallaudet women's coach (WBCA Center Court)
- Darryl Keckler, Drew men's coach
- Kyle Lindsay, Adrian men's coach

There is a first time for everything. Right?

On Sunday's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave chats with a number of programs who have never been on the show. All of them are in conference races and yearning to position themselves well for conference tournaments. Not sure any of them were expected to be in this position.

It seems to be a theme that's pretty common of late.

At the same time, one coach has been so consistent that winning number 600 almost seemed like a forgone conclusion, but a player she has on the team now may be one of the best no one is talking about.

And what to make, again, with the men's Top 25? And who will be the last women's team(s) to stay undefeated this season? Ryan Scott joins Dave to chat in the Top 25 Double-take segment.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch the show LIVE starting at 7:00 p.m. ET here: http://bit.ly/2GoBKlL

If you have questions, be sure to interact with the show on social media (see below) or email us your questions (hoopsville@d3hoops.com).

Guests include (in order of appearance):
- Jeff Gard, UW-Platteville men's coach
- James Mooney, Mount Saint Vincent men's coach
- Carroll LaHaye, Randolph-Macon women's coach
- Lynn Hersay, Smith women's coach

Great marathon, Dave.

Unfortunately, it looks like YouTube lost most of the Hoopsville Happy Hour when the on-demand version got archived.  It seems that the archive on YouTube can only be for 12 hours maximum.  The marathon lasted 14 hours.  The YouTube on-demand archived version currently has everything up to the Happy Hour.

Update:  So, did anyone take any notes of what was said at Happy Hour?  Other than the name of d3's newest conference and surprises on the women's side?  (D-mac said Wartburg and Bowdoin on women based on what I got from the Facebook simulcast before that ended...)

I am working to get the Happy Hour up on YouTube... it appears YT took me seriously when I said we would go from 10am to 10pm and despite the fact we continued to broadcast... they cut the archive off at 10pm.

The problem/delay is that on my hard-drive recording... the audio kept skipping... brutally every few minutes or so... so I have had to go through the broadcast solving that so the lip-flap doesn't get too bad. It added up to about 15 or so seconds at the end being cut off! LOL

Will try and remember to let you know when it is done... working as fast as I can.

From what I have seen, it looks like all attempts to get the Hoopsville Happy Hour up have not worked.

Oh well, I guess I didn't miss too much.....😀

Looking forward to Hoopsville this afternoon.  Did Pfeiffer (NC) bite off more than they can chew when they joined the ECAC a few months ago?  It is at least 400 miles from Pfeiffer to any potential ECAC tournament opponent.

Trying again today... had some personal stuff at home to tackle as well... and we know who takes priority there.

And Not sure about the Pfeiffer/ECAC thing. There are a number of schools in the ECAC as far away as the Mississippi River - maybe not in DIII, but I am sure Pfeiffer just wants to get in the mix and get as much as experience as possible.

Also, with the new "dues" set-up the ECAC has, schools don't have to pay yearly dues anymore. They can play them by sport. Not surprised at all Pfeiffer is looking into the ECAC, but it is going to cost them a lot of money to travel.

The big game is over, so now it's time to focus only on basketball. Division III basketball to be exact.

Join Dave and a number of guests on this special Monday edition of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com). There is plenty to talk about including another crazy weekend of results that will have Top 25 voters scratching their heads and maybe pulling hair off their head as well. Plus, the first regional rankings come out later this week. While predictions are hard, there at least will be some reminding of how this all works.

And maybe even a preview of what this evening's Top 25s look like.

The first regional rankings are out which in itself brings on a lot of conversation, but the jockeying and positioning contines in conferences around the country for teams trying to keep their seasons going into March.

On Thursday's edition of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave talks to a number of high-ranking squads about the pressure to stay atop their respective conference races while also positioning themselves well in the regional rankings.

Dave also welcomes a coach who has played in DIII, coached in both DII and DIII, and coached both men and women. He talks about the road, possibly, less traveled in the "WBCA Center Court" segment.

How did... but they... so... wow... okay.

Another crazy week(end) of Division III basketball leaves us more questions to answer, heads to scratch, and what-ifs to contemplate.

Sunday night's episode of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) promises to ... hmm, maybe we shouldn't promise too much if this season is a lesson in anything. Nothing is guaranteed.

Tune in LIVE starting at 7pm ET as Dave is joined by a few guests from around the country, but more importantly takes the time to look at some of the more interesting conference races and upcoming tournaments. There is plenty to dissect just two weeks away from the close of the regular season.

As the regular season draws ever closer to the end, the intensity of conference races increases. There are very few teams in both the men's and women's side of Division III basketball that seem comfortable at the top. With conference tournaments starting, being at the top is important, but it also comes with a big target.

This Thursday's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) is a special podcast edition - not live.

On the show, Dave talks to several coaches who teams seem like they have wrapped up their conferences races and one who may not be able to take the top spot, but is in great position to win it all their first time in the league.

We also talk to a coach who has more time than it seems anyone else. How she is using that time to help her school's SAAC in many ways and how that help is allowing the student-athletes at Southern Maine to give back to the school, the community, and many more.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can listen to this week's podcast here: http://bit.ly/2EtvKH0

A reminder, Hoopsville will return to live shows on Sunday, February 18, starting at 7:00 p.m. ET.

Guests include (in order of appearance):
- Pete Moran, No. 18 John Carroll men's coach

It is down to the final week of the regular season. It is now or never. Win the conference tournament, earn the automatic qualifier, and a team will be playing in March. Don't win it and either hold out hope for an at-large selection or the season is over.

The season continues or ends on the bounce of a ball from here on out.

So who may be in jeopardy and who is sitting pretty? On Thursday's edition of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), we start to read the tea leaves while also chatting with teams who are hoping to punch their ticket for the Road to Salem or Rochester themselves. Plus, we get a preview of what could be a fascinating weekend of NESCAC tournament action at Amherst.

The regular season is over. Conference titles have been crowned and most teams are either getting ready for the NCAA tournament or packing up their locker rooms.

However, there are quite a few programs who are now sitting and waiting ... waiting to hear whether they have been selected to compete for a national title as well.

Who may be in and who may be left out of the NCAA selections? On Sunday's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) Special, Dave McHugh is joined by those who know Division III inside and out to try and figure out who will make up the two 64-team brackets.

The Hoospville Special: Selection Sunday gave us plenty of time to not only make our mock selections, but also talk to programs who have either earned NCAA berths or are waiting to find out if they will make it.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch it the show LIVE here: http://bit.ly/2GI6LA6

We forgot to post this yesterday... or more realistically, didn't have time...

(http://cdnak1.psbin.com/img/mw=710/cr=n/d=4rx4o/st0zrjaanjidvo5o.jpg)

The NCAA Division III tournaments are set. We know which 128 teams will be playing for the national championship. But there were some surprises, maybe some controversy, and certainly a lot of questions.

On a special edition of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave McHugh was joined by Ryan Scott as they answered questions, tried to understand some of the decisions made, and pointed to some of the more interesting games to watch.

Dave also had a chance to talk more in depth about one of the big stories in the men's bracket, Yeshiva. Men's coach Elliot Steinmetz discussed the team's first ever conference title, NCAA tournament berth, and some of the scheduling changes that will take place to accommodate the school's religious background.

Dave will also talked to the men's committee chairs, Tim Fitzpatrick (Coast Guard Athletics Director), later in the show.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch Monday's show here: http://bit.ly/2GFVq3M

The Division III men's and women's national tournaments are set, teams are where they need to be, and practices underway. Now, it's just a matter of tipping off the games.

But before we tip them off, we need some final thoughts.

Tune in Thursday night to Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) where Dave will talk to a number of guests about their programs and their chances in the NCAA tournament. You can't starting heading down the Road to Rochester or the Road to Salem without getting an idea of who may be joining you, either. Dave will give some insight on how some of the pods just may shake out as well.

Also, earlier in the day, Dave talked with Women's Basketball Nationall Committee chair Bobbi Morgan (also head coach at Haverford) and asked her a lot about the selection process and bracketing for this year's tournament. You can hear that special podcast here: http://bit.ly/2GUbfE0

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Thursday's edition hits the air at 7:00 p.m. ET. You can tune in live here: http://bit.ly/2HSi9ed.

With so much parity, especially in men's basketball, unexpected outcomes where to be ... expected. However, that doesn't prepare anyone for the number of upsets, who was upset, and how.

Sunday night on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave tries to breakdown the opening weekend not only looking back at some of the crazier finishes, but also talking to programs who escaped the wrath. Programs who are dancing on to the second weekend and hoping to punch their ticket to a championship weekend.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCANABC Studio. You can watch Sunday episode LIVE starting at 7:00 p.m. ET here: http://bit.ly/2FbY54R.

Ha, thanks Smitty. We love what people have contributed or we have collected over the years. We have a few things to add, actually. Also have to re do it to show off more.

The Road to Rochester and Salem are nearly complete. Only thing left is to actually hit the road and get the teams, media, fans, and others to their respective championships.

It was a thrilling and, maybe, shocking Sectionals Weekend in Division III. For the women, quite a few exciting games, but four of the top five teams in the country advanced to the Championship Weekend.

Not so much on the men's side. Only one ranked team is headed to Salem. Two weren't even receiving votes in the last Top 25 poll. And two have never been to the final four. Only one host got out of their own gym by cutting down their own nets. It was crazy.

On Sunday night's episode of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave and guests try and break down what happened this weekend and what we might be able to expect in Rochester and Salem. Who came up big, who had the bounces go their way, and more. Guests from four of the eight teams will also discuss their roads and initial thoughts on knowing they are two wins away from a national championship.

Hey fans! It has taken about a month longer than I thought it would, but we plan on starting up an off-season, monthly, Hoopsville podcast later this week. We have a few guests lined up and a couple of topics to discuss. So, stay tuned.

After this week, we hope to get a podcast out each month (around mid-month) between now and November. Should give us a great chance to talk about coaching changes, previews of what to expect next season, and more.

Just an FYI - these shows will be audio-only during the off-season. If you have not signed up to get our podcast via SoundCloud, Apple Podcast, or Google Play, click the links below:

If you have ideas or think there are things we should take some time out of our summer to look at, let us know. I cannot make any promises we will cover everything, but we welcome ideas for sure.

Also, we have a new idea on how fans of the show can help give back to keep our efforts going ... more on that to come.

The 2018-19 season is officially underway and so is Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com). While normally Dave McHugh would be coming to you live from the WBCA/NABC Studio, with the tip-off of the season also comes with it basketball games for Dave.

Thursday's show is a pre-taped preview of the upcoming season. Can either of the preseason number one teams stay on top the entire season? How many teams have a legitamate chance of playing for a national title? Who could possibly be sleepers or surprise? What games should fans be watching early on to get a sense of the season ahead?

The answers to those questions are completely different if you are talking men's or women's basketball. So, on Thursday's show Dave brings in colleagues to give the answers. Gordon Mann and Ryan Scott lend their opinions and insight on the season ahead.

Also, one of the more surprising coaching developments in the last year was the fact Hall of Fame, and former UConn, coach Jim Calhoun was throwing his hat in the DIII ring. We chat with him about why he decided to lead the St. Joseph's (Conn.) program and what to expect out of it's first season.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Thursday's edition will be available at 7:00 p.m. ET via a player above and another to the right.

The season is kind of, sort of, possibly underway in Division III. With the earlier start being decided less than ten months prior, not every program was able to take advantage of the new date. There are still teams who haven't tipped off their seasons while others have already played two or three games this season.

That doesn't mean we can't find topics to talk about on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com)!

Sunday, Dave is back live in studio with plenty of DIII conversation. Plus coaches talk about (high) expectations and being in charge of a program for the first time. Can St. Thomas women take the next step as a program? How will MIT's season be engineered? And from All-American to head coach, what it's like to take over a program for the first time.

Plus, the winningest men's coach in Division III history will not start the season on the bench. More on what has lead Glenn Robinson to take a medical leave of absence.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Sunday's show will hit the air at 7:00 p.m. ET and be watched here: http://bit.ly/2PPm16G.

The season is a week old. There have been some interest results and certainly some early upsets, but the bulk of games really gets going in earnest now.

On Thursday's episode of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave chats with a couple of programs who are getting some national attention, but not everyone may know who they are. One features an All-America selection. The other have plenty of options to give any defense fits.

But not all the news is positive, Dave also breaks down the Fitchburg State incident (https://www.d3hoops.com/notables/2018/11/fitchburg-state-kewan-platt-decks-opponent-ejected-suspended) in their game against Nichols.

Thursday's show also features Karin Harvey, Montclair State women's coach and chair of the National Women's Basketball Committee. Harvey is entering her third year on the national committee, but first as chair. The conversation will encompass what, if any, changes fans and others should expect from the Regional Ranking and national tournament process.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Thursday's edition will air starting at 7:00 pm.m ET here: http://bit.ly/2qNG3Ag.

'Tis the season of ... upsets? There have been plenty. 13 of the D3hoops.com Men's Preseason Top 25 have lost and even the women have seen some shockers (Eastern Connecticut over Amherst!). So, I guess there are many teams thankful this time of year?

Sunday on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave recaps a wacky few weeks of basketball and previews what could be very topsy-turvy first in-season Top 25s. Dave also welcomes one of the teams which pulled off one of the larger upsets in the last week, Loras, who defeated No. 3 Augustana.

Division III also hears from the new men's basketball committee chair for the first time this season. Gallaudet Associate Athletic Director for Communications Sam Atkinson joins Dave in studio live to talk about the new-look national committee, how the work has evolved not only over the years but also the last few months, and take questions from viewers.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Sunday's show hits the air at 7:00 p.m. ET. You can watch the show here: http://bit.ly/2RdmAom

The carnage continues!

Ok, maybe some hyperbole there, but it doesn't take away from the fact nine men's Top 25 teams lost (account for 12 losses). Even the women are taking more losses this time of year than maybe we are used to from that Top 25 group. Five more took losses this past week, granted some were to other Top 25 opponents.

What could the second Top 25 poll of the season look like when it's released Monday evening? What other teams are surprising or maybe flying under the radar?

Join Dave McHugh as he's returned from his soccer soiree to recap another incredible week of Division III basketball. Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) will air at a special time on Monday - starting at 11:00 am Eastern.

McHugh will be joined by a few teams stealing the spotlight early in the season. Plus, Ryan Scott helps Dave get back up to speed and tries to read the tea leaves ahead of the latest Top 25.

Dave will also talk to the latest coach to join the 600-win club. DePauw women's coach Kris Huffman talks about the accomplishment and this season's seemingly low-octane squad.

Oh ... and we get the sights and sounds of a game between UW-River Falls and St. Thomas from US Bank Stadium, home of the Minnesota Vikings, in Minneapolis.

The Division III basketball season is nearly a month along. We have reached the first quarter pole of the season to evaluate where everyone is and where teams are headed. There have been plenty of surprises, upsets, teams stubbing their toes, and more. There are also some who are doing well despite maybe not being fully saddled when they left the gate.

On Thursday's edition of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave takes a look at three programs which had very late coaching decisions and how those decisions have affected the programs. Two teams, Salisbury men and Trine women, saw their coaches suspended and then fired in the month leading up to their first games. Another, Brandeis men, saw their coach make national headlines, be fired, an interim hired, but then that decision reversed and a new coach hired just two weeks before practices began.

All three, are off to terrific starts accounting for a total of two losses on the season so far.

What is it like to adjust to a last minute coaching change? What is it like to take over a program, or enter an athletic department and school, in such perceived turmoil? How hard is it to put the blinders on and focus at the task at hand? We follow up Ryan Scott's terrific story last week with a chat with two players and a coach on the experience of dealing with change.

Plus, after years of waiting it finally happened! Division III women's basketball is getting it's own All-Star Game! Williams' coach Pat Manning discusses the long journey to the announcement, how they found a sponsor, and why the game will be the center piece of changing the women's Championship Weekend altogether.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch Thursday's show live starting at 7:00 p.m. ET here: http://bit.ly/2E4YCb4.

There is plenty to distract this time of the season. Finals, holidays, even weather. Staying focused on each practice and game is just a bit more challenging in December.

Sunday on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), we chat about those distractions with teams that are helping shake up not only their conferences, but also the national landscape. However, how do they stay focused? Especially when expectations start to increase each game. Also, how do they take advantage of opponents possibly losing focus?

We've entered the part of the season when teams are either off the court for an extended period of time or they are still practicing and playing occasional games leading up to a break around Christmas. It is an odd time of the season. You look away one night and forget there is a big game happening. You try and focus in another night only to realize there isn't much to watch (if anything).

Some schools are still wrapping up finals as well!

These few weeks can also be challenging to teams. Staying fresh even though there could be up to a month between games. Staying focused, even though academics are a much higher priority that what's happening on the court. And staying healthy despite travel to different parts of the country or back home to be with family.

Thursday night on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave tries to work his way through the distractions to talk to a few teams all of which still have games this December and seem to be off to pretty good starts. We'll even hear from a student-athlete's perspective. How are finals, the holidays, and travel affecting these programs?

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Thursday's episode will air live starting at 7:00 pm ET right here: http://bit.ly/2rA87rl (and via Facebook Live simulcast).

The first semester is coming to a close. With it comes an opportunity to look back and evaluate what we've seen throughout Division III basketball so far. Did we get any early Christmas gifts? Or did some teams get some coal?

This is also the time of the year one starts to look around to see if any teams are flying a little under the radar. Off to good starts that maybe haven't been noticed or a big win or two here and there have people scratching their heads.

Sunday on Hoopsville, we not only shined a light on some programs off the radar, but also start pondered the opening, nearly, six weeks of the season. Be sure to tune in as we take the new "Buy or Sell" up a few notches.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Sunday's episode is available to watch, in two parts, On Demand in the video player(s) above. You can also listen to the show, in it's entirety, via the audio-only podcast. You can find it here: http://bit.ly/2rFVWsQ

Finals are done. Teams are getting a break, short or long. Everyone is taking a moment to slow down, enjoy time with family (hopefully), and take a breather.

That's what happens when the first semester comes to a close. Before long, the pressure will increase and games will be in full throat. This break will seem like a distant memory.

In an ode to those leaving work, campus early for the holidays - maybe hitting the road in the afternoon instead of evening, Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) wraps up the finale to the first semester with an early show on Thursday. Dave talks with a couple of programs who have captured his attention. He also chats with a conference commissioner who not only has had a direct impact on the evolution of Division IIII basketball, but is also hanging up his commissioner's hat at the end of the academic year.

And who wants to "buy or sell" women's programs? Gordon Mann joins Dave with his take on the first six weeks of the season. There isn't anyone better to break down DIIII women's hoops, than Gordon.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can tune into Thursday's special edition starting at 2:00 p.m. ET LIVE in the video player above.

The holidays are over and for many Division III basketball teams, the conference schedules are already in full swing. It doesn't take much time before a casual break ramps up into high-pressure games.

Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) is also back from it's holiday "break" on Sunday evening. Dave tries to get caught up after a couple of weeks of action and wild results. Who impressed during the holidays? Who (re)started conference play with a bang? What does the final two months of the regular season have in store? What will the new year's first Top 25 ballots look like?

The grind of conference play is in full gear. Nothing beats a team up or reveals how good one is like the grind of conference play.

Thursday night on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) we take a look at the grind and how teams are surviving, surprising, and even impressing as the holidays and the break quickly become a distant memory in the rear view mirror.

The first of the season's "WBCA Center Court" segments also debuts with the dedication of one coach off the court and with her family. UW-Platteville women's coach Megan Wilson talks about her daughter's battle with cancer and the decision to step away from coaching to help her daughter fight.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch Thursday's show, LIVE, starting at 7:00 p.m. ET here: http://bit.ly/2D0Qd7t

The risk with basketball (and other sports) season? Weather. One or two storms can throw a monkey wrench into a well thought out schedule and travel plans.

The same can be said about trying to play with within a conference. Programs know each other so well that games can suddenly become rockier than anyone thought looking at the matchup on paper.

On Sunday's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave will take a look at the "stormy weather" that both Mother Nature and conference schedules seem to have brought us. From postponements and travel challenges to head-scratching results and season-turning outcomes.

Tonight's highlights include a Williams men's team off to the best start in program history, a DeSales women's program that is blowing the doors off of games, and a Greenville men's squad that seems to have mastered the "System" pretty darn fast.

We will also debut the "NABC Coach's Corner" with a former DIII coach, turned administrator. Schreiner Athletics Director Bill Raleigh talks about his former days coaching and why being an athletic director is what drives him now. He also talks about his work on the NCAA Basketball Rules Committee and his continued work with the NABC in support of Division III.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Sunday's episode hits the air at 7:00 p.m. ET and can be watched here: http://bit.ly/2VRm3Lh (or via Facebook Live & Periscope simulcasts).

Hope you didn't decide to take a night off or two from games? You would have missed some important results. While Wednesdays and Saturdays tend to be the big "nights" of any week in Division III, games on any night could have major ramifications.

The algebra this time of year is both simple and complicated. Conference schedules, for the most part, have moved into the second half and teams seeing teams a second time sometimes have an advantage. Rivals, of course, have an advantage. There are also distractions as some teams have been sitting on mostly empty campuses for several weeks and may be bored. Or second semester classes are beginning and changes to schedules can be an abrupt adjustment. There are also long road trips that can take a team's focus. Plus, the weather. Yeah, Mother Nature loves changing things around.

All of it can lead to upsets or strange outcomes. From blowouts to close battles. On any night, you are bound to see something you will be chatting about the next day.

Thursday's show includes guests from a couple of the hottest teams in men's basketball: Capital and Swarthmore. We also hear from an island squad and find out if the Whitman women's upset of George Fox should have been a surprise. And Springfield's Naomi Graves chats about how the U.S. Marine Corps has helped her coach and preach diversity.

Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch Thursday's show starting LIVE at 7:00 p.m. ET. in the video player above.

Milestones, upsets, underdogs, under the radar, and giving back ... that's what's on tap for Sunday's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com).

While in the conference grind, there are always results people don't expect. Whether an upset or a team flying under the radar finally pops up on everyone's radar, there are games and teams worth paying attention to outside the usual suspects. But even the top teams in the country have a story to tell.

On Sunday's episode, we will learn what it's like to be on the top team in the country, how a team can still fly under the radar with big results in on a difficult conference, how another team has emerged that no one was expecting on top of another competitive conference, how one of the top conferences in the county ticks and how the races there may turn out, and the importance of giving back to the community especially in honor of one of the country's greatest leaders.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Sunday's show will air live starting at 7:00 p.m. ET here: http://bit.ly/2HoPIZf (and simulcast on Facebook Live and Periscope).

Oh ... and the show is definitely going to see some "overtime" tonight.

Suddenly the end of January is upon us! Where has the season gone? We are past the halfway point, conference action is now in it's second go-around (for most), and the matter of regional rankings and conference tournaments is becoming more real.

Teams who have had unbelievable starts, but have not faltered, are now in the spotlight. The question is no longer "can they keep this up?" But rather, the question has become, "how did they get this good?" Tonight, we ask versions of that last question.

Thursday on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), We will hear from St. Thomas who hasn't been the MIAC dominator the last few years, but is back on top in a far more competitive conference. Oswego men have already knocked the SUNYAC boss, Plattsburgh off the pedestal. And Southern Virginia women have startled the entire conference. We find out how a first-year coach with no Division III experience has shocked everyone.

Plus, we chat with Oberlin's women's coach who has not only preached diversity, but created an environment for his program and the conference that reiterates open and safe environments. It has also thrust the team high into the NCAC race.

Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Thursday's edition will air live starting at 7:00 p.m. ET here: http://bit.ly/2FXlhXN (or via Facebook Live and Periscope simulcasts).

Well, things certainly escalated quickly! Upsets a plenty. Conference races tightening. At the same time, some more clarity? Maybe not.

There will be plenty to talk about on Sunday's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com).

Join us as Dave and his guests work to figure out what has happened in just the last few days, plus get a sense of what's to come. We will talk to teams who are near the top of their conferences races in the Northeast, Atlantic, South, and Central regions. Plus, we hear from a coach who continues to give back to the NABC and trying to improve how Division III is perceived within the coaching ranks.

Oh, and how will the Top 25s shake out on Monday?

What a weekend!

It was one of those sets of days we have seen often in Division III where at every turn there was something to watch, a result to ponder, and upset to breakdown. The hardwoods across the country had games worth watching all with just three weeks left in the regular season.

It started with Dave and Pat's trip to Holland, Michigan to witness the 200th meeting of Calvin and Hope. The game at DeVos Fieldhouse lived up to expectations. From the crowd to the battle on the court, every moment was a thrill ride.

And the Super Weekend didn't stop there. A number of teams in both Top 25s took losses that not only will shake up the polls, but also shakes up conferences races and adds plenty of intrigue for the first Regional Rankings to be released this week. Oh, and a 200-point explosion from a high-powered offense!

On this special, Monday, edition of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave and guests have plenty to try and breakdown. Dave will share his reactions from "The Rivalry" and you will hear one of the crazier stories on how a mom names a son. Plus, hear about the Greenville-Fontbonne game which saw 346 points put on the board. And coaches from Hamilton men and East Texas Baptist women along with one of the top players for WashU women give us insight on how their teams are doing.

Ryan Scott also joins Dave as they give their initial reactions to the latest Top 25 polls and more.

Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Monday's show can be see LIVE here: http://bit.ly/2UGhZw2 (and simulcast on Facebook Live and Periscope).

Thursday night's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) will be an extended version of the show to cover both the conclusion of the UW Stevens Point men's basketball investigation and our normal programming this time of the season.

The show will begin with continuing coverage of the UW Stevens Point case that finally wrapped up after more than three-and-a-half years. Athletics Director Brad Duckworth will join us for an exclusive, in-depth, interview about the case, the findings, the punishments, and what it all means for UWSP and the basketball program.

We will then shift into what would be a normal Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) episode talking to teams that are making headlines in the final month of the season. Not only are teams surging, but with Regional Rankings now out the focus on who may be in or may be out of the NCAA Tournament starts to come into focus.

In the WBCA Center Court segment, Dave will also talk with a women's assistant coach who is turning heads not only in the program, but also in the conference and around the country.

Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) is presented by D3hoops.com (https://www.d3hoops.com) and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch Thursday's extended show starting at 7:00 p.m. ET here: http://bit.ly/2SyWv6X (or video Facebook Live and Periscope simulcasts).

The 2018-19 season has entered it's final weeks. For some teams, their final games are this week. For others, they are fighting to hopefully still be playing next week and maybe beyond. While others hope their season stretches into March, as long as they take care of business this week and next.

The season can really all boil down to a couple of games. While November is just as important, February games seem to have a different feel to them. Regional Rankings coming out gives everyone a new sense of where they stand if they have postseason plans. Conference tournaments getting ready to start also gives gives teams more incentive to lock up seedings or berths.

As a result: A lot of craziness and games to watch on any given night.

On Sunday's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave and guests try and take the temperature of these final few weeks. Who has turned heads, who seems to be stumbling down the stretch, and who should we be talking about while we've been distracted by the usual suspects.

Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Sunday's show starts at 7:00 p.m. ET right here: http://bit.ly/2GkK7C6 (or video Facebook Live and Periscope simulcasts).

It is now or never.

The last week of the Division III basketball regular season is here. Conferences will decide who will earn automatic bids to the NCAA Tournaments and teams try and position themselves for at-large bids, hosting opportunities, and bracketing considerations.

For teams who have been faltering, this is the last chance to right the ship. For programs which have underachieved, this is the last opportunity to live up to expectations. And of course for those with Cinderella dreams, this is the chance to try on the glass slipper.

Sunday's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) will cover it all in a special, extended, episode which for the first time (outside of Marathon programming) will feature a guest from each of the eight regions. We will also discuss which teams may be on the bubble, who has most likely secured at-large bid, and which teams need to win the AQs. Plus, we talk about how regions as we know it now could very well change in the future.

Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Sunday's show will hit the air at 6:00 p.m. ET. It can be watched live right here: http://bit.ly/2EeG5ZE (and simulcast on Facebook Live and Periscope).

There are just days left in the regular season and conference tournaments are in full throat. And those vying to get into the NCAA Tournament are already sitting on the proverbial "bubble."

There are two ways to keep dancing in March, either win the conference automatic qualifier (i.e. tournament in most cases) or hope one's resume is good enough to be selected. However, with upsets in conference tournaments come some nervous times for those needing the at-large avenue.

Some teams are already on the bubble, but are they in trouble?

On Thursday's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave brings in guests who either have already lost or may need to win. We also enjoy the thrill of victory. And hear from a coach in charge of off-season workouts and practices at her institution. What goes into such a job as most teams start to make the transition to next season.

Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Thursday's show can be seen LIVE starting at 7:00 p.m. ET right here: http://bit.ly/2NhkfYn (or via Facebook Live and Periscope simulcasts).

This is it! The regular season is over. The conference titles have been handed out and 86 teams know they will be playing next week in the NCAA Division III men's and women's Championship Tournaments!

However, 42 slots need to be filled. Which programs have best positioned themselves to selected to play for a national title?

It is the biggest show of the year. Bubble teams watch anxiously. Rivals watch wondering if their rivals will make the event. Others watch because ... this is one of the best nights of the entire season.

Tune in a special episode of Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com) where we will make our mock selections of who will be in and who will be left out of the DIII national tournaments. Our teams of experts will make the picks using the same criteria the national committees consider.

Plus, hear, one last time before the brackets are announced, from the national committee chairs who discuss how this year's rankings and process have worked out. And hear from some teams who have already punched their tickets to the tournaments - many for the first time in program history!

We are down to 32. A great weekend of basketball has cut the NCAA tournament teams in half. There were some surprises, surprising outcomes, and fun environments around DIII. Even the end of the title defense of Nebraska Wesleyan.

On Sunday's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), we try and recap it all while also hearing from several of the coaches who found themselves in the thick of it.

The second weekend of the DIII Men's and Women's Championship Tournaments is set to start. Can the upset minded teams continue to prevail? Can the "favorites" maintain their poise? What home team will enjoy their own cooking? And who will still be playing in Fort Wayne and Salem?

On Thursday's Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave is joined by a number of guests to get a look not only at the action ahead this weekend, but the action coming at the final fours. Which teams seemed ready to be playing one more weekend?

The final fours are set! Eight of the best men's and women's teams remain to battle it out for two national titles. On the women's side, many of those expected to make it to Salem. On the men's side, none of the top four powers will be in Fort Wayne.

Sunday on Hoopsville (http://www.d3hoopsville.com), Dave takes a look at both a record breaking performance on the men's side and chats with the four teams dancing on the women's side. (Due to the extensive coverage in Fort Wayne at the men's championship weekend, Sunday's show will have more women's coverage than men's.) How one man put up 62-points in a game and has already shattered the single-tournament scoring record. And how the four hosts on the women's side survived their weekends to advance.

Usually we try and relax in the offseason. We have always had ideas of doing an off-season podcast, but we usually end up being distracted by other things. This off-season we decided to go for it.

We did get some "down time" in between the end of the season through the end of May, but we are ready to get back into chatting about DIII - basketball especially.

And there is plenty to talk about starting with the "MIAC Decision" or #TomToss.

Dave McHugh is joined by Pat Coleman to discuss why (no, really, why?!) some of the MIAC presidents decided to "involuntarily" remove St. Thomas from the conference it helped found 99-years ago. We talk about the history, the flaws in the supposed arguments (though, no president has gone on record), and what options UST has moving forward. Dave also gives his thoughts on the topic.

Also hear from two coaches who made some unexpected job decisions this off-season. Dave chats with Sam Hargraves who left Alma for fellow-MIAA member Olivet despite his alma mater, Calvin, having a job opening. And Gordon Mann chats with Michael Coppolino who shifted coasts to take over the vaunted George Fox program - something that was even unusual for GFU.

Plus, a brief look at some of the other coaching decisions as the calendar turns towards summer.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops .com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. The May Edition is an audio-only podcast. You can listen to it here: http://bit.ly/2WPSdKM
