The final week of the 2017-18 season is upon us. In a week's time, the topic will be who has punched their tickets to the NCAA tournaments and who is hoping to get selected. This week... we don't know many of the answers and some questions have yet to be considered.

url=http://www.d3hoopsville.com]Hoopsville[/url] returns to the air LIVE this Sunday night with a jam-packed, and super-sized, edition. Dave welcomes guests from around the country and looks at a lot of the conference tournaments which are getting underway. Can some of the top teams take advantage of home-court advantage? Who may surprise? Who do some NOT want to see lose if they hope to make the tournament themselves?

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/2EyN7G9

If you have questions, be sure to email them to hoopsville@d3hoops.com or interact with the show via the social media avenues located to the right.

Guests include (in order of appearance):
- Tom Glynn, Nichols men's coach
- Anne Crutchfield, Emory & Henry women's coach
- Kevin Broderick, Nazareth men's coach
- Zach Otto-Fisher, UW-Superior interim women's coach
- Jon Prevo, No. 24 Rose-Hulman women's coach

The NCAA released the third set of women's basketball regional rankings with few changes from last week's version. This is the final set that we'll see before the Tournament bracket is released on Monday. Full list here: http://d3hoops.com/notables/2018/02/women-regional-rankings-third

^^^Thanks for sharing that. I'm very surprised R-MC beat Marymount, who is clearly not a top 25 team. R-MC only has ten players on the roster, from what I could see on the computer screen it looked like only nine were in uniform last night and only eight played. Several good underclassmen from last season are not playjng this season. If they hadn't been able to get a big enough lead they would have lost in the 4th quarter as they were clearly tired and making the kinds of mistakes teams make when running out of gas. Kelly Williams is a good player -- played all 40 minutes last night and managed to stay out of foul trouble. If she has to go to the bench for more than a few minutes there's no way R-MC can compete with most teams. I doubt they will continue to win like that the next 24 games. They'll win some more, for sure, but how many???

Well, I was sure wrong about that. Congrats to R-MC on the ODAC championship. Great coaching job by Coach LaHaye. The Jackets were playing so much better at the end of the season than at the beginning.

 Saw Megan play 2 games in the 2005 Final 4 - very impressive! Also, my son went to VA Tech when Beamer got them to their 1st postseason bowl - Poulon Weed Eater in Shreveport; a big ascent in prestige ever since.

Most of you know that successful EMU WBB Coach Kevin Griffin left EMU and coaching to go into the ministry. His replacement has been named for the Lady Royals.  https://www.emuroyals.com/sports/wbkb/2017-18/releases/20180814k9fmu6  Jenny Logan, former BC player and current Hollins coach.  She will get a team that returns a lot of good players.

This can easily be discussed in the ODAC board. We don't need to start another thread. (I am sure Pat will move it when it has the chance; just wanted to point out we can keep things inside their own conference threads :).)

R-MC and Kelly Williams getting some pre-season notice on a national level and the Jackets picked to win the ODAC. A much larger roster this season with seven freshman plus the return of Michal Ross who played in 16-17, but not 17-18. That should take some of the pressure off Williams and give opponents more to defend against. Could result in fewer points, rebounds, and minutes for Williams this season. She might appreciate the rest.

Saw Emory and Henry dominate a very young Maryville team.  Wasps looked good and poised and aggressive...

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, 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 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.

If you have questions about Division III basketball, feel free to send them and we will answer them on a the show. Email them to hoopsville@d3hoops.com or use any of the social media options to the right.

Guests Schedule (order subject to change):
- Karin Harvey, No. 24 Montclair St. head coach & Chair, National Women's Basketball Committee
- Rich Bensman, Ohio Northern men's coach
- Anne Crutchfield, No. 23 Emory & Henry women's coach

Congrats to Randolph Macon Coach Carroll LaHaye for breaking the ODAC all time wins record (men's or women's). Macon defeats Bridgewater 94-87, primarily due to a 24-12 lead after the 1st Quarter. Bridgewater closed the gap to 3 several time but Kelly Williams hit a 3 pointer and a long 2 to extend the gap to 6 and 5 points in such situations. I thought once the 6 foot 3 Williams picked up her 3 rd foul with 5:11 left in the 2nd quarter that things were looking up for the Eagles but it was not to be. Bridgewater has not caught up to Macon yet but we are almost there. Looking forward to the rematch on January 22 in Ashland.
