Have to like the school first, in case of injury. do i want to study here if i can't play b-ball? is the question.
study the roster, see who is leaving at your child's position, and watch a few games. watch the coach closely to see how they react during games.D-3 coach's are just as whacked as D-1, and some of the egos were amazing, in nescac and outside.
see what kind of system they play.
they will tell you how much your kid will play and all that, don't believe all the bs.
AAU coaches are usually the best link to the college level, or that is what i found. Good AAU programs will have college coaches watch tournaments they are in or even go to practices.

good luck

When your "opinion" is as ridiculous as the one I quoted, then it deserves to be called out.

Midwest basketball is not some inferior, less-evolved life form. You are not some higher life form. That's arrogance of the highest order.

By the way, the NCAA hired us, Senatorfrost, same as they did last year. And the year before. They know how to find good neutral Division III basketball announcers.

Thank You Pat!

I second that Pat! The arrogance and elitist attitude of some of the nescac fans, coaches etc. is ridiculous.

Laser,
 I've seen them over ten times in my 4 years ot watching, and IMO, they take after the coach, chronic complainer to officials. Most of them do complain, some way more than others. they follow her lead.

I've never seen a bunch of fans corner the refs after the game. Babson lost by 15... not some close game. SO, way to keep it classy Babson. I tried to be friendly with some of their fans the night before, and even rooted for them... Unfortunately they pretty much yelled at me. Anyhow, congrats Amherst, repeat final 4... not an easy task.
Bab shot 48% +lost, 23 turnovers, had 10 more free throws, granted they had 18 less shots. but got outrebounded offensively by 7 + Amh had more fouls called against them. I know , i was not there. Looks like they didn't take care of the ball + got outplayed by Amh guards.
Those parents are brutal, i saw it enough thru the years, but only since they became a better team. their 2 bigs fouled out twice all year, go figure.

Gromacki has a great system, is what you're saying, and it has worked elsewhere.

Title9, that was my quote.

Colby should be happy, but i don't think she will stay long if those "complaints" about her trying to run it like a D-1 program are true. D-1 has the money for scholarships, like Stanford, and I think they are much different than the Ivy League because of that. That makes a huge difference. The school owns you for 12 months. Many D-3 kids want some time off, and have transferred from D-1 + D-2 programs to these schools so they can have a life and play as well. And a lot of kids paying full freight at the D-3 level can't be working out all off season, because they have to work.
And its all about the talent the coach brings in, makes coaches good coaches if they can do that. Anyone doubt that Amherst has  the best talent in the NESCAC? That is a credit to the school as well

On another crazy note....while in attendance at the Colby-Babson game tonight I was told by some purported Colby insider ( i.e. a parent of a Colby College employee) that there is a movement adrift seeking to make a change at the Head Coach level of the womens' team.  This sounds preposterous to me.   Anything to it?

That's more than preposterous.  It's insane.  I don't know the answer to your question but I know there was some bellyaching (whining) about her running the Colby program too much like a D1 program a while back.  Bet nobody complains about that level of commitment with Gromacki.  Colby should appreciate what it has (a highly credentialed, knowledgeable, skillful coach who treats the D3 women's game with RESPECT) before they loose it.

She's broken the Colby WBB record this year and her team is by far, the most improved this season with a huge upside for next year.  She understands the game (which is sadly unusual in D3 WBB) and is probably the only NESCAC coach who can give Gromacki a run for the money when it comes to game coaching.  NESCAC is full of .500 team coaches who keep their jobs for decades and yet there's a "movement" to get rid of a D1 championship winner who is commited to developing a program?  Grow up, Colby. 
   
If they loose or give up Gear-McBride, they didn't deserve her in the first place. 




she's probably not long for that place anyway, just a stepping stone on the way to a D-1 program. I know when she arrived she got rid of most if not all of the players she inherited.
The problem with Running it like a D-1 program is, it's not D-1, kids got to go to class and actually study for a while.

Deis,
    you were right again my man. Keene State would be tough, and they won it all. They did play a good schedule, with some quality wins. All N.H. final was nice

Plymouth State? C'mon selection committee, you can do better. And Emerson?
Passed on a few superior teams, especially in the NEWMAC.

Looks like the WPI Invitational. Wonder if they'll break a sweat.
Start etching WPI on the trophy.
Will be 3 ECAC'S in a row for NEWMAC.

Sorry, Keene State just cancelled your plans.  :)   The Owls didn't even play that well, according to Coach Boucher, and they still ended WPI's season.    Keene State won, 56-49, in the first ECAC semifinal.

It will be Little East or TCCC-- with Little East more favored.   Plymouth State vs Regis in the other semifinal coming up.


Deis, check the date of that post, its 2009, last years ECAC'S

Andy Y. + Emmanuel prevail over Babson

I sure can pick em.  Babson shot 67% in the 1st half, 61% for the game, while Emm. shoots 27% for the game, with 8 less turnovers than Bab and 22 more shots, 0-14 from beyond the arc. OUCH!!
They must not of liked Colby's gym
Anyone there? Deis? did Davis get hurt?

As an admitted anti-NESCAC low-life, I continue to be astounded by the unconscionable favoritism bestowed upon the tweedy topsiders from Brunswick, Williamstown, etc. by the fawning and cooing members of the selection committee.  Year after year.  Nothing ever changes.  Holy Blueblood!!!!....get your collective heads out of your
%$#ses! 

Wow, good one Rems. I needed a good laugh.
