I did discover today that Marcus Dempsey never enrolled at JCU.  I'm working to track down his plans, but that transfer, at least for this year, isn't going to be one the league has to worry about.

That's interesting.  I believe he'd have to sit out this year anyway.  OAC rules require transfers within the conference to sit out a year.  Or at least they used to.  Maybe things changed with COVID.

Would it be different if he got his bachelor's from Musky and was a grad transfer?

He would have been able to play right away as a grad transfer.  I do know that.

If the VWC we've seen in just a couple games so far it's really second best in the ODAC, it's going to be a RMC runaway.

Random non-season debate for you all:

On that JJ Redick podcast where Duncan confronted Malcolm Gladwell, Gladwell asked how many points Redick would've scored if he'd played at Williams.  Robinson immediately said "40 plus," and Redick helpfully pointed out he scored 27 ppg as a senior at Duke.

His senior season was 2005-06, which was a mediocre year for Williams with no real stars or much scoring. There were a lot of shots available, although defenses could reliably triple team Reddick without a ton of punishment.

What's the verdict?  How many points could JJ Redick have scored on the 2005-06 Williams squad?

How many D3 schools are even having a season??

It should end up over 50%, the real question is if it'll get to 60% in time for March.

Johns Hopkins
St. Joseph (CT)
Christopher Newport
St. Thomas

With my luck only about 3 of these 16 teams would've made the tournament anyways but RIP to the 2021 tournament :(

It's not 100% gone yet, just 98%.

This transfer came to our attention this week.  Interesting, if nothing else.  Trinity begins their season tomorrow with SCAC play opening.

Gordon would have to confirm, but we went to an Amherst game last season together and I believe Shipley was the player about whom he said, "she's going to be the next Amherst star."  She was definitely impressive and will almost certainly make a difference at Trinity.  I wonder how long it takes to unlearn the Amherst system (although hopefully not the defense)?

I just signed up to be a Patreon supporter for D3Sports.Com.  I'd strongly encourage others to do the same (see article on the Homepage).  Let's support the site to keep the conversations going!

Took me a long time to get around to doing this, but definitely glad I did after 15+ years of frequenting the sites and posting on the boards. I saw a report from Pat Coleman elsewhere about how the campaign is going. Perhaps he'd repeat it here.

Pat and I just recorded an "Inside the Nation" chat about some of the information that didn't make it into the Around the Nation column this week.  That will be available to Patrons on a regular basis going forward.  The fact that we have an Around the Nation column at all this year is a direct result of the support of patrons and donors through this program.  We're definitely grateful!

Duncan was also on the JJ Reddick podcast yesterday, where he got to confront Malcolm Gladwell directly for the digs he took at Williams and d3 basketball back in the Spring.  Gladwell didn't come entirely around, but he did retract some of the more ridiculous statements.

They also announced Duncan would be getting his own podcast to focus on people who overcome large odds to achieve success.

I was just looking to see when OAC hoops was starting (a week from Friday...1/22) and noticed the format of the schedule.  Home and away on back to back days.  Obviously I'm sure this is for COVID reasons, but man that's going to make it very interesting.  You drop one you shouldn't and the pressure is on big time having to bounce back the next day and get the win.  No time to regroup and address what you did wrong in practices.  It'll definitely be different.

A number of conferences are scheduling this way because it means you only have to test once.

The Transylvania schedule on D-3 Hoops shows the game against Morehead State as postponed, but that game was played on December 15th and even in defeat the Pioneers played the D-1 opponent well. The Pioneers are 3-3 as they head into conference play this coming week.

Thanks. We had it correctly postponed on the 7th, but missed the reschedule.

The testing guidance from the NCAA is very dense.  The USA South is doing home and homes against the same opponent every week, just to minimize required testing and associated costs.

Dave, Pat, and Gordon when did you all make the decision to add SNC to schools that will not play winter sports? To me, the Dec. 3rd release was to vague and could've been in reference back to conference play and not their decision when it said, " St. Norbert College sports affected are..." and the autonomy mentioned. Clarity came on Monday's hockey release when "St. Norbert College will not participate in intercollegiate athletics while conditions remain uncertain. The status of our Spring 2021 sports will be evaluated on an ongoing basis." Curious how you all took everything and if you got clarity "behind the scenes" earlier in December. Thanks.

Dave's got some pretty solid, well-placed sources on that one.

Edgewood men's and women's basketball teams traveled to St. Paul, Minnesota and played Northwestern on the 12th of December for their first games of the season. Men's team won 71-63 , but the women's team fell in OT 79-75.

These games originally showed as postponed, but they did get played.

I periodically audit the NCAA stats to make sure we haven't missed any games.  It's basically impossible to know for sure who's playing when this year.  I caught the women's game, but the NCAA hasn't updated men's stats since 11/29, so we're a bit in the dark on that one.  Thanks for the help.
