Alright, one last fantasy league for this season, this a new one and hopefully you guys enjoy it. This is the D3 Hoops National Championship Showdown. I got this idea from DraftKings, so you will have a salary cap of $50,000 (you do not have to use all of it) that you have to stay under when constructing your lineup. Each player and their season long Fantasy Points Per Game as well as their salary is listed below. Your roster will comprise of 5 players, no lineup or team restrictions, and 1 team captain for a total of 6 total players in tonights championship game. The player you select for team captain will have their points multiplied by 1.5 (if they score 20 FP, it would score 30 FP as captain), but the catch is their salary will also be multiplied by 1.5. The other 5 players will score normal points and salary will be as listed below. I will do all of the scoring, and please everyone make a roster, it will make watching tonights game even a little more exciting than it already is!

Multi-Regional Topics / D3 Hoops Bucket List
« on: February 02, 2019, 10:59:58 am »
So I was listening to the Hoopsville marathon show this morning in podcast form, and Dave interviewed both Calvin AD and Hope MBB HC in light of the 200th rivalry game between the two MIAA schools today. Dave mentioned that he and Pat are making their way to Holland this weekend to take in the game. This had me thinking that I would love to see a Hope-Calvin game in person. And then sparked a thought... a Bucket List for D3 hoops. Some of the best things in and around D3 hoops that everyone who loves this game should take their time to watch in person.


D3 Men's Hoops Bucket List:
  • Hope - Calvin Rivalry game
  • Little 3 NESCAC game - Williams vs. Amherst is my personal thought
  • D3hoops.com Las Vegas Classic
  • Tommie - Johnnie Rivalry game
  • Whitman - Whitworth Rivalry game
  • Wooster-Wittenberg Rivalry game (would like to watch this one at Wooster)
  • Augustana CCIW game at Carver center...  only qualifies for a witnessing a flying jacket
  • NCAA tourney first or second weekend of games
  • NCAA D3 Final Four Weekend - Final Four games, All Star Game, Championship
  • Witnessing The BeltTM in all of its glory, non-NCAA Tourney game


Any thoughts on my list? Everyone will have a different list, but I would love to hear what others would put in their list!

So I am assuming that everyone will fill out their bracket at http://d3challenge.com/!

With that said, I think it would be fun to have everyone post their Final Four teams onto this tread and we can see if we have any elite D3 minds that get all 4. If we want to make a game out of it, we could rank them 4-1 based on your confidence level, like the MIAA predictions do. The tie breaker would be picking the national champion, and whatever team advanced further would get the edge.

Just let me know what you guys think, pretty easy concept so hopefully we can get a lot of participation!

Multi-Regional Topics / All-American Predictions
« on: February 25, 2017, 01:18:40 pm »
Okay so I don't quite know how this will be perceived... but with the NCAA right around the corner ( ;D ;D!!!), I think it would be fun to discuss possible All Americans for this season!! I know there are a lot of great players around the country and one cannot possibly keep track of all of them so this is just my very provisional list. Please feel free to add/subtract, agree/disagree, discuss about some of the best of the best in D3 hoops!

Also, from my experience with this (as much of you probably know), being named MVP of their conference really matters in terms of these exposure for these All-American awards.

Multi-Regional Topics / Coolest Gym in each Conference
« on: March 16, 2016, 12:11:02 am »
My teammates and I always talked about what school had the coolest gym in the MIAC, and it was always fun talking about which gyms people liked playing in and which gyms people hated. I think it would be determine (in our own humble opinions   ;D) the coolest gym in each conference! Although I am limited to the Upper midwest, I will give my opinions where I can.

MIAC - Has to be Hutton Arena of Hamline University. Not only does it have the looks and the history (http://www.ncaa.com/news/basketball-men/article/2016-02-09/first-intercollegiate-basketball-game-was-played-feb-9-1895)) but it is also very player friendly. I could see some arguing Concordia M'head (but I may be biased  ;))

UMAC - This conference might have the worst gyms in d3, but Northwestern's is actually very neat. Not too big but still has the collegiate feel rather than the high school feel. Probably helps that they also have the best attendance in the conference too.

I would love to hear if you guys like this idea and your opinions on the matter!
