Yeah that's a good point --- a whole new set of challenges.
Plus, with the fact that the team will not be eligible for postseason for a while, I would think that recruiting may be difficult unless there is a lot of scholarship $$$ available right away.

Remember, there are limits to scholarship money. In DII, they can split up scholarships (DI basketball and football, splitting up a scholarship is not allowed - full-ride only) and that can mean a lot of creative things to get recruits in. So there is a max number of scholarships given in total (10 full-rides - making up that number, don't know it for sure) and they can be given out in any size up to full-ride needed as long as it totals the max.

Recruiting will be tough. Next year the programs will still be competing in DIII (with no scholarships available anyway). The first recruits coming on campus will be the following year which, as long as everything is on course and they have been officially welcomed to DII, will be the first of the four-year transition process ... and like in DIII, they won't be eligible for NCAA postseasons until they complete those four years ... ASSUMING nothing goes wrong and a year or two in the process is not repeated.

You got it in one, Dave:  exactly 10 scholarships to be divided up as the school sees fit.    http://www.ncaa.org/about/division-ii-partial-scholarship-model

Meia Daniels Netter has resigned from HPU.  I am sad to see her leave.

Here's an interview I did a couple weeks ago with Coach Hassell about her transition from Texas-Tyler to HSU. She also talks about Tyler's potential transition to D2.

Yes. The ladies are legit. I haven't made it to a game yet, but I have watched online a few times. Beating ETBU the way they did should really give them some confidence.

The carnage continues!

Ok, maybe some hyperbole there, but it doesn't take away from the fact nine men's Top 25 teams lost (account for 12 losses). Even the women are taking more losses this time of year than maybe we are used to from that Top 25 group. Five more took losses this past week, granted some were to other Top 25 opponents.

What could the second Top 25 poll of the season look like when it's released Monday evening? What other teams are surprising or maybe flying under the radar?

Join Dave McHugh as he's returned from his soccer soiree to recap another incredible week of Division III basketball. Hoopsville will air at a special time on Monday - starting at 11:00 am Eastern.

McHugh will be joined by a few teams stealing the spotlight early in the season. Plus, Ryan Scott helps Dave get back up to speed and tries to read the tea leaves ahead of the latest Top 25.

Dave will also talk to the latest coach to join the 600-win club. DePauw women's coach Kris Huffman talks about the accomplishment and this season's seemingly low-octane squad.

Oh ... and we get the sights and sounds of a game between UW-River Falls and St. Thomas from US Bank Stadium, home of the Minnesota Vikings, in Minneapolis.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch Monday's special episode live right here: http://bit.ly/2DXh0ma

Guests Schedule (order subject to change):
- Mark Morefield, No. 25 UMHB women's coach
- Kris Huffman, No. 21 DePauw women's coach
- Josh Merkel, No. 17 Randolph-Macon men's coach
