I've been MIA the past few weeks but now return to talk about the Chapman women's team who I try to see play ever chance I get, live stream or in person.  To me I think this team is the lukewarm favorite to win to finish first and host the SCIAC playoffs.  I say lukewarm because their size will be an issue for them.  An athletic post player gives them some trouble.  As hard as Gao plays, she tends to get in foul trouble albeit she's doing better than last season not committing silly fouls.  Takaoka and Gao should be under strong consideration for POY because they've been on every team's game plan. Takaoka has carried the offensive load for the majority of the season.  She hit a big three pointer with 22 seconds left in the game against Oxy last Saturday to put them ahead for the first time since early in the game.
Villanueva and Higashigawa have been playing better and better with each game.  Higashigawa who's used mainly to guard the opponent's best scorer, has now been contributing offensively hitting some clutch shots in the second half of the La Verne and Oxy games.  Villanueva has really settled down at the point.  She's personally responsible for the team's wins against Messiah, Claremont and La Verne.  Johnson played an outstanding game vs. Oxy and her two free throws sealed the win.  Moy and Ebrahimian and freshman Krysl are contributing positive minutes.  If they had Sato, who's injured, Chapman would be pretty tough to beat.
At this point of the season, the contenders are: Chapman, Cal Lu, Redlands, La Verne and CMC.  I give Chapman a slight nod to win the league and host the playoffs with Cal Lu 2nd, Redlands 3rd and CMC 4th.  I think Oxy is going to be a spoiler.  Thursday, Chapman goes to Cal Lu and one might think if Chapman wins, they'll have a stranglehold on first, I don't think so because somebody will knock them off.   This is going to be a GREAT GAME.

Cal Lu got revenge on Chapman with a ten point victory.  Cruz and Salottolo score 21 and 25 respectively.  Cal Lu took control of the game when they held Chapman scoreless for about eight minutes in the first half and turned a nine point deficit into a ten point lead.  Chapman tried to mount rallies but either Cruz or Salottolo hit a basket to increase the lead back into double digits.
Villanueva (Chapman) was incredible with 27 points on 12-19 shooting.

Saw last night's game, CMC vs Chapman.  I was ready to anoint Chapman as the team to beat in SCIAC after a MAGNIFICENT 1st half.  I don't know if you could play any better.  Supan, Chapman's back up point guard, has been playing much better; looks like she figured it out.  She makes quicker and BETTER decisions handling the ball and works harder on defense.  Prior to this, she held the ball to long and defense seemed to be an afterthought.  Hallstein, Chapman's tallest player has played well lately.  She's tough minded and aggressive and passes very well.  Where has she been hiding??
The second half was much different.  CMC's press was slowly affecting Chapman and when they got it to six points with under 4 minutes to play, this became anybody's game.  The confidence and swagger that Chapman played with in the 1st half was gone.  Very impressed with CMC's Scamman.  She would not let her team lose without a fight.  Barnes and Brackman rose up in the second half t help CMC's comeback.  What puzzles me is why do you call off your press when your down by three?  The other thing I couldn't figure out was why foul when Chapman had the ball and the shot clock was at 12?  A defensive stop would have gotten CMC the ball back with about 10 seconds left in the game.  Takaoka and Villanueva were amazing down the stretch.  I can't anoint Chapman as the team to beat, but if they win against Redlands Saturday, they're in the driver's seat.

Strong 2nd half leads Chapman to 59-41 victory over ULV and win #1 seed in SCIAC tourney, and will host CLU who takes 4th place tie-breaker with ULV. Chapman finished 2-0 against CMS and 1-1 against CLU.

CMS took down CLU 62-52 to capture #2 seed and will host Redlands, who finished third.

Other action saw Oxy down PP 71-58, and Whittier over CIT.

SCIAC Playoffs begin tonight:
Redlands @ CMS:
I see this one as an all out war.  For me, Redlands has the edge in rebounding (almost 100 more than their opponents) and defensively creating just over nine steals a game.  CMS has the unflappable Scamman, who will keep CMS close and find a way to win the game.  I think Redlands has a little more depth and will end up winning in OT by three points.
Cal Lutheran @ Chapman:
Chapman was terrible in the first half at La Verne, but OMG they dominated La Verne in the second half to pull away.  They cannot have a mediocre game tonight because Cal Lutheran is a tough match up problem for them.  I think this game for Chapman will be tougher than the championship game (if Chapman wins).  If they play like they did in the 2nd half of the La Verne game, Chapman wins by 14-18 points.  If Chapman does stay focused the entire game, the game is close and Cal Lutheran may squeeze out the win.  Close game, I'll take Chapman by five.

CMC @ Chapman:
Chapman is 2-0 vs. CMS this season.  Third time the charm, but for which team.  For CMS to win, they’ll need to not allow Chapman to control the boards.  Gao, Johnson, Ebrahimian, Moy, Hallstein and Villanueva average over 3+ boards a game.  Who else will rise to the occasion to help Scamman, Barnes and Brackman.  Perhaps it could be Ray?  Chapman CANNOT ALLOW Scamann to get to the paint as she easily does.  She’s the reason why the Chapman games against CMS are close.  Scamman is unflappable and sometimes unstoppable as she proved against Redlands the other night.  If someone else doesn’t step up for CMS, Chapman will win by 12-16 points.   I still like Chapman to win if the game is close.  Takaoka and Villanueva are clutch players.   
I don’t like to individualize the great team sport of basketball, but the winner of tonight’s contest could determine the SCIAC POY: either Chapman’s Takaoka or CMS’s  Scammann.  I think Takaoka should get it because her team lost two starters just as the season started and she’s put the team on her back in several games this year when her teammates play was sometimes inconsistent.  Scammann has kept her team in games, but Takaoka has been very consistent.

Congratulations to CMS for winning the automatic bid to the NCAA playoffs.  Tough game vs. DePauw, but Chapman has a tough one also vs Whitman.  Hey but we got two teams in and I see the conference to be stronger top to bottom next year.
I just want to say how well the Athena's played Saturday night.  The coaching staff did a nice job implementing their game plan to NOT ALLOW Takaoka to get the ball and smother her when she got it.  It was mostly Barnes did a fantastic job shadowing her.  I mentioned in my previous post who else would step up for CMS and it was a trio of players, Dobbert, Dungca and especially Ray.  Ray controlled the game and made big play after big play when needed.  CMS also shot very well and seemed much more in sync. 
For Chapman, it was a lesson learned on how to handle adversity.  The greatest coach in the world can't teach it because it's an individual as well as a team thing.  When Takaoka was having a difficult time getting open someone else had to step up other than Villanueva and Gao.  Higashigawa did, but the bench didn't produce as they had in the past and there were some costly turnovers form the starters as well as the bench players.  As the lead grew, Chapman mistakes rose.
I believe the Al-SCIAC teams will be announced shortly.  I said previously that Takaoka should be selected as POY.  I also think Coach of the Year should go to Jue.  She did a masterful job guiding this team through the multitude of injuries (two starters out for the season) but it helped develop a deeper bench and lack of experience in some positions.

We are back to our normal Sunday and Thursday Hoopsville shows tonight! Now that we are getting back into our routine, we get back into the habit of featuring the East, Mid-Atlantic, Great Lakes, and West Regions on Thursday night shows (Northeast, Atlantic, Central, and South Regions on Sunday nights). Tonight, Dave McHugh talks with coaches who are succeeding so far this season thanks to a bit of a youth movement. How those squads are either exceeding early expectations or reloading pretty nicely. Dave also gets an assist from Pat Coleman to help cover the much anticipated men's basketball game between No. 1 Augustana at No. 5 Elmhurst which needed overtime to be decided. And Dave talks about the latest Hoopsville partner - the WBCA. With the WBCA coming onboard with the NABC there needed to be some branding changes. You will hear the change almost immediately.

Watch Hoopsville tonight at 7pm ET: www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2015-16/jan7 - a show that had to be pre-recorded tonight due to other commitments.

Guests and/or topics include (in order):
- Pat Coleman, coverage of No. 1 Augie vs. No. 5 Blue Jays
- Ron Rohn, No. 10 Muhlenberg women's coach
- Lindsay Goldblatt, Cal Lutheran women's coach
- Fajri Ansari, Buffalo State men's coach
- Chris Kibler, Hiram men's coach

The opening day of the 2015-16 basketball season started with a bang. The NCAA announcing major violations by Thomas More which resulted in vacating the entire 2014-15 season including the national championship - the first time in the history of Division III basketball, men or women. Tonight on Hoopsville, continuing coverage of the fallout of that decision including an exclusive one-on-one interview with Coach Jeff Hans of Thomas More.

Plus we take a look at the start of the season and talk with Claremont-Mudd-Scripps women's basketball who is no longer flying under the radar. We also talk to the Trine women who want to take control of the MIAA. Plus we hear from two men's coaches starting anew at Case Western Reserve and SUNY-Canton.

Hoopsville airs live starting at 7:00 PM ET. You can watch the show here: http://www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2016-17/nov17

Guests include:

The saying in the NFL is: "on any given Sunday." The idea being that anyone can win a game no matter the match up because, well, things happen. The same could be true in Division III basketball. On any given night, someone will pull off an upset. And in some weeks we see multiple upsets.

What to make of it all? Tune into Sunday's edition of Hoopsville as Dave tries to make sense of most of it with guests from around the country who can provide their insight.

Also on tap for tonight, can Amherst women run the table? What to make of William Peace men's basketball. And why one coach is highly regarded in the Chinese-American culture.

Tune in starting at 7:00 PM ET here: http://www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2016-17/jan15 - or via Facebook Live. If you can't watch the show live, you can catch up On Demand once it is off the air or download the podcast via SoundCloud or iTunes.

Guests scheduled (in order of appearance):
- G.P. Gromacki, No. 2 Amherst women's head coach
- Claude Shields, William Peace men's coach
- Carol Jue, Chapman women's coach - WBCA Center Court
- Mark Beinborn, Augustana women's coach
- Ira Thor, New Jersey City SID - Atlantic Regional Reporter

And don't forget about the Hoopsville Mailbag segment! Email questions you may have to the show at hoopsville@d3hoops.com and we will answer them tonight or on a future show.

Last night I went to the CMS game vs U Texas at Dallas in the first round of the playoffs.  CMS had a very nice victory.
CMS has an exciting team and played swarming defense.
I was especially taken by the 4' 9" point guard  from CMS.

Try to watch this live on your computer tonight,

CMS will be playing Trinity.
Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.
