Oxy is off to a good start.  They got their first conference win at La Verne on Dec. 5, beating the Leopards 77-73. Oxy had a comfortable 43-31 halftime lead, but ULV fought back and tied the game at 62 with 7 minutes left. The Tigers were 8-for-8 FTs in the last 4 minutes, and escaped with a road win.

Oxy (7-0, 1-0 SCIAC) plays next at home against Whittier (2-6, 0-1) this Sunday at 4:00 p.m.

Good for La Verne.  They are expected to be last in the SCIAC.
Camping under the stars is a great chance to view the night sky. And to feed mosquitoes.

Oxy definitley looks good.  Played solid..Laverne made some young mistakes, which cost them a chance to win. Laverne is young and simply needs to gain experience...and there is only one way to do that.  Reed has some talent there that will take time to develop.  Oxy played much better the 2nd half.  Once #24 got some rythym going, he was solid around the bucket!  ULV frustrated him for most of the first half...... But as with all talented players, he made adjustments and found a way to get inside and get the foul line. Definitely a fun player to watch.  Has some real body control once he gets inside....if he starts getting the 3's to fall...look out...

We've entered the part of the season when teams are either off the court for an extended period of time or they are still practicing and playing occasional games leading up to a break around Christmas. It is an odd time of the season. You look away one night and forget there is a big game happening. You try and focus in another night only to realize there isn't much to watch (if anything).

Some schools are still wrapping up finals as well!

These few weeks can also be challenging to teams. Staying fresh even though there could be up to a month between games. Staying focused, even though academics are a much higher priority that what's happening on the court. And staying healthy despite travel to different parts of the country or back home to be with family.

Thursday night on Hoopsville, Dave tries to work his way through the distractions to talk to a few teams all of which still have games this December and seem to be off to pretty good starts. We'll even hear from a student-athlete's perspective. How are finals, the holidays, and travel affecting these programs?

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Thursday's episode will air live starting at 7:00 pm ET right here: http://bit.ly/2rA87rl (and via Facebook Live simulcast).

Thanks GS. I hope Rich Reed and ULV can get it going this season.

No shocker: Claremont and Pomona -- Scali and Kat -- are the teams to beat. Lots of depth.

FYI to SCIAC fans: Great opportunity to see high quality D-III teams in the Cal Lutheran Holiday Classic on Dec. 28-29. Joining CLU will be Whitman (ranked No. 4 in D3hoops Top 25), UW-Stevens Point (ranked No. 12), and Illinois Wesleyan (previously ranked No. 15). On Dec. 28, CLU plays UWSP and Whitman plays IWU. The next night CLU plays Whitman and UWSP plays IWU. Well worth a drive to Thousand Oaks.

It usually takes more than half a season to figure out if a coach was the right or wrong decision. Let's see where things go further than two months into the season. This isn't professional sports. It isn't even high-end DI.
Well, I think we have our answer. 9-15 record last year (worst in 25 years) with 7 returners, 5 with starting experience. And now a 2-5 record to start this season. The next two games dont look to promising either.

Should have kept Geoff Dains and Bob Massell after RR retired.

Massell recruited me, and they both coached me during my 4 years there @ CLU. Had a chance to stop by and watch them against Lewis and Clark and it was very disappointing. Really seems the direction of Kingsmen basketball is not a positive one.

Have to agree with Oxy Bob....they should have never let Dains and Rider get away...seems like it was a "Friend" hire there...but only an opinon...definitely gotten away from thier winning ways and develpment for sure though...have to agree...a once competitive program too...
