Washington U - St. Louis (17-8 overall, 10-4 UAA)
* Gone: n/a
* Back: Jack Nolan, 6-1 Jr. G (16.1 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 2.4 apg); Justin Hardy, 6-5 So. F (14.6 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 3.0 apg); Matt Nester, 5-11 Sr. G (10.7 ppg, 2.8 rpg, 3.6 apg); Hank Hunter, 6-8 Sr. C (10.2 ppg, 7.3 rpg); DeVaughn Rucker, 6-5 Sr. F (8.5 ppg, 4.8 rpg); Jonathan Arenas (5.8 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 3.2 apg, UAA defensive player of the year candidate).

Added one player.

(Players noted below in "gone" and "back" averaged 8.0+ PPG last season.  Obviously each team has other important lost/returning players, but that's where I drew the line for this analysis.)

The last time Manchester beat Franklin, there was no such site as d3football. 21 in a row for the Grizzlies since the Spartans last won in 1997. Donavan Henderson breaks the Manchester career rushing record in the process. He entered the game #2 in D3 for rushing yards per game (149.6) and #3 for total rushing yards (748) this season and that average will go up a little.

I have another question what is the karma score and what affects it

Quote
Karma is an optional feature that shows the popularity of a certain member. The administrator can enable this from core features. When members are allowed, they can Applaud or Smite a member to raise or lower that member's karma.
When you have enough posts on the boards (can't remember what it is as I hit it a long time ago) you'll unlock the ability to applaud or smite people. It will be located right underneath the karma score. Ultimately it doesn't do anything special but it's a nice way to show appreciation for posts that were helpful/liked/etc or to show displeasure with someone who's being chaotic and disruptive. So right now I've been applauded 480 times and smited 49.

ok i have basketball fever it was hell not having my daughter play AAU this summer. She got offered to play in the MIAC summer season but she didnt want to play on teams that recruited her. Does HCAC have a summer league  I know Rose doesnt do one if there is due to internships.
I don't believe the HCAC has anything like that.

I know not all rosters are posted yet but how do you think the conference will look like.   
My guess is Transylvania is still the team to beat, but Rose and Hanover will be in the mix. They've been in the top 4 for the past few years. Hard to say until rosters are set.

How did the st. mary crosstown start. 
I don't know the origins, but I know St Mary-of-the-Woods was an all women school until just a few years ago. RHIT was all male until the 90s I think.
My guess is that the Hulman family connections are the reason. They're best known now for IndyCar and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway but originally Hulman & Company was founded in the mid 1800s in Terre Haute for groceries and best known for Clabber Girl baking powder. A few of the females in the Hulman family went to St Mary while the Hulman name was added to Rose Polytechnic in 1971 for their contributions there.
There's also Indiana State located between the two but they're a D1 program.

What is coach prevos reputation.  in all my dealings with him he has been terrific.   Rose was the last school she would visit and they did something real smart.  The head of the school told her "Kahlan its great that your a terrific basketball player and we look forward to having you play but your hear because of your mind and you wouldn't be here if we felt you would not flourish here.  That meant alot to her and got her to pass up full rides from D2 and Naia schools.  Coach Prevo also told her that her hard work had given her options and she should be proud of that. That to many kids dont have the options they may only have one offer or cant afford a school so they attend a university they may not want to or take a major thats not their first choice.  To be frank they didnt make her feel like a piece of meat.  Some will argue with me and have that the following sentiment kept her from being a D1 player they may be right i Have no ideal but when she says basketball is part of me but not who I am. Im proud of that.  There is no WNBA for my daughter she has already stated that she is going to treat these 4 years as her Wnba career and also to get the experiences team wise she wasnt able to have in high school.

ok enough rambling dont have anyone to talk to about their kids experience as she is the only one from her school to play college,
I can't say from personal experience (bowling was my sport of choice but wasn't offered at Franklin), but certainly the student part of student-athlete is far more emphasized than at a larger school.

I dont have any experience with the conference i dont know if its like MIAC which is strong or the UMAC which is weaker.
Definitely not MIAC level, a bit better than UMAC. Transy winning 2 playoff games last year I think were the first wins for the conference since 2014.
Most of the schools average a bit over 1000 students. Rose is the largest in the conference with around 2000 I believe.

So, um, I just noticed this in the Pre-Championship Manual:

Quote
Teams from the same conference may not play each other in the first-round of competition.

It appears that the all-SCIAC round one matchup is no longer an option.
That must have been added in recently because last year the Hardins had a round 1 rematch.

Everything is a bit odd this season. Not counting the two from the NESCAC, there's still 29 unbeaten teams in the country but only 4 of them in the north (Mount Union, Wheaton, Mount St Joseph, Olivet) and we're just now approaching the halfway mark. We had 8 last season at this point. Precisely 1/3 of the region (18 of 54) are sitting at 3-1 or 4-1.
