2 Great wins this weekend! Looking forward to driving to Rock Island for the game on Friday!

That is a long drive to the Quad Cities.  I wonder how many fans will be able to make the trip -- too long to drive, too expense/inconvenient (due to the connection) to fly may be the attitude of many JCU fans.  Are you in Chicagoland already or are you making the long drive '70?

I'm in the Chicago Suburbs, so only a 2 hour drive for us!I go back to the CLE once every fall for a football game, and have been lucky with 3 football playoff games within a couple hours of Chicago since 2014, but haven't had the chance to see Basketball! Couldn't miss this opportunity!

I'm not sure how many JCU fans from Cleveland will make the trip, but the Chicago Alums do travel well for these games. If the Wheaton, Whitewater and Oshkosh games from football provide any indication, then we may have a decent showing! But being a Friday may make it a little more difficult.

It appears that the Blue Streaks decided to forego their plan trip to Moline and opted for a bus ride on the Great Lakes Express.

Wise decision in my opinion as I estimated that the round trip from JCU to Illinois hotel via plan would be, at best and assuming no delays, would be 7 hours.  You can get there by bus in nit much more time.  So, NCAA, don't say JCU never saved you money.

I feel like they should spot us a few points to show their gratitude!  ;D

Dickinson did this a few years ago out of the greater Harrisburg, Penn. region. Felt it was better to bus than split the team with flights. Happens more often than people realize.

​Dear D3 Faithful ;D,
     I have read many of your posts throughout the years and even met some of you in person, but for those who I havenít met, let me introduce myself: my name is Michael Rejniak and I have spent over 14 years coaching Division 3 basketball and love what our division has done and continues to do for  the sport of basketball. One of the greatest things about Division 3 basketball is the brotherhood that we all have with one another (coaches and players alike). My wish is to showcase the talents of D3 on a national stage in The Basketball Tournament (TBT).  You may have heard me speak about this on the Hoopsville Marathon with Dave McHugh of D3hoops.com (at the 6:11 mark). The TBT is a national tournament that is televised in July/August on ESPN after the NBA season is over. My goal is to put forth an all-star D3 team (current players are ineligible) and have them compete in this tournament to take on Former D1 / semi-pro's to prove that D3 deserves the same respect as other NCAA divisions. The team is mostly complete with former student-athletes from all over the country competing. Once the roster is complete we will be sure to release it through d3hoops. Former Babson College National Champion Matthew Droney '17 will also be assisting me on this journey.

How YOU can help our former elite D3 basketball players

While the end prize of this tournament is a monetary prize, being a D3-lifer, the goal is not the money (we all know that's not why we get into coaching), the goal is to bring an end to the stigma of Division 3 basketball, an awareness of how talented our student-athletes are and that we can compete (and win) against the best. We do need to raise funds for an entry fee, travel, meal and housing expenses for the athletes. In order to do this, we are conducting a crowd-funding campaign through GoFundMe to help make this a reality. These athletes need your support! Just think -- if every Division 3 school donated just $10, we will have raised over $4,000!!!! The link to the GoFundMe Page is below and please SPREAD THE WORD and email me with any questions/concerns at WeAreD3TBT@gmail.com. Thank you in advance for your support and Dave and I look forward to this "D3 Dream Team" taking the court this summer.-Mike Rejniak

Well, as usual, JCU does not have their basketball schedule posted and the rest of the league (with the exception of BW (although d3hoops seems to have the entire schedule cobbled together)).  Please see below for the schedules of each of the OAC teams with JCU a link to just the partial (read:  OAC league games) schedule as posted and gathered by d3hoops.com:

When does JCU usually post the full schedule?

JCU could very easily be a little behind these days. Not that I would expect their SID to let work slip for any reason and I am NOT saying he has let anything slip (I don't know when they normally have the full schedule posted), but he has bigger priorities right now.

Approximately 75% of all D3 schools have their schedules posted now... those that don't are BEHIND those that do....And of the 100 + some odd that haven't posted, close to half of them are from the NorthEast and East small schools that are likely grossly undermanned....  The NAC, NEAC, NECC, MASCAC, LEC and GNAC are all in the 50% of schools not posted range.  The NESCAC and SCIAC are way behind too.....  The Great Lakes and Central Regions are already close to complete, and this is the usual trend.... priorities are different.....
