According to the conference tracker page, Benedictine is not eligible for the NACC tournament. Are they also not eligible for the NCAAs? Is this their punishment for leaving and then begging to come back after things didn't go as planned?
They are eligible.

It's been awhile.....

Final Regular Season NACC Standings

1. Benedictine 20-5 (16-4)
2. Wisconsin Lutheran 19-6 (16-4)
3. Concordia Wisconsin 16-9 (15-5)
4. Lakeland 13-12 (11-9)
5. MSOE 13-12 (10-10)
6. Illinois Tech 12-13 (10-10)
7. Rockford 11-14 (9-11)
8. Aurora 10-15 (9-11)
9. Dominican 11-14 (7-13)
10. Concordia Chicago 8-17 (7-13)
11. Edgewood 8-17 (7-13)
12. Marian 4-21 (3-17)

WLC and Benedictine split the conference title. For my alma mater this is their first conference title in 18 years! However the Eagles get the top seed off a coin flip.

I didn't realize those two teams have exactly the same losses - they split with each other, and each lost at Concordia Wisconsin, at MSOE and at Concordia Chicago. That's actually a big coin toss with both teams having gone 10-0 at home in conference play - in fact, Benedictine hasn't lost at home all season.

And CUW and Benedictine get into the field. Four NACC (2 Men, 2 Women) teams in the tournament this year.

D3 Benedictine has landed Anthony Lynch, a transfer from D2 Lewis. The 6-3 G averaged 20 pts, 5 reb, 3 assists as a SR at Larkin HS in 2017-18; was 2nd Team IBCA 3A/4A all-state.

Sounds like a big add for BU.

His high-school career isn't relevant anymore, Bob. What is relevant is that he's played a grand total of 65 minutes spread over two full seasons at Lewis. He has scored 10 points and grabbed four rebounds to date here at the halfway point of his college career.

He could turn out to be a strong player for Benedictine, given that all of that time at the end of the bench over the past two years was spent at the end of the bench on a scholarship-level team. Then again, plenty of guys with that sort of nondescript background at the D2 level transfer to a D3 school and do nothing there, either. Either way, what he did as a 17-year-old playing against other 17-year-olds says nothing about the kind of player he is at this moment as a rising college junior, or what kind of player he'll be in five months when he dons the BU uni for the first time on a game day.

I see it differently.

The number of players that looked like studs coming out of high school and didn't turn into much of a college stand out is pretty numerous. There are also a high number of players who weren't much in high school and turned into studs in college - Duncan Robinson comes to mind. Robinson didn't blossom until a PG year in high school (which would have been a freshman year for anyone who didn't take an extra year in high school; pretty popular in New England prep schools). He exploded as a freshman ... and we know the rest or the story.

Let's see what happens on the floor. Could go either way.

And I'll say that about pretty much every recruit out of high school. There are some we think will be great we never talk about and others we never saw coming nor their greatness.

Interesting, thanks for posting this! I'm not sure how I feel about the Muskies somehow having even less of a low post presence than they did last year (with Anderson having graduated), but maybe that is just the grumpy old traditionalist in me speaking and it will work when you put it on the floor. Guess we'll have to see.

First, we apologize for the "June Podcast" showing up in early July. Computer problems caused havoc this month. Sadly, it delayed our production plans for several weeks, but we are calling this our June edition all the same.

When the season came to a sudden close, it left a lot of unfinished business on our end. We didn't have national champions to talk to, but we also had a lot of news to cover. This podcast we take some time to do some catching-up with the season's number one men's team and the Jostens Trophy winners - with Gordon Mann and Ryan Scott picking up the interviewing responsibilities.

And we all know the coronavirus has changed everything this year, but how close to home has it hit you? We talk to one coach who experienced it himself first hand while also having his wife be diagnosed with COVID-19 days after giving birth to their first child.

Guests include:
- Matt Airy, Aurora men's coach
- Sydney Kopp, No. 11 DePauw's Jostens Trophy winner (interviewed by Gordon Mann)
- Kena Gilmour, Hamilton's Jostens Trophy winner (interviewed by Ryan Scott)
- Landry Kosmolski, No. 1 Swarthmore men's coach

Oh, did we mention the Hoopsville Notebook? It is a jam-packed notebook this edition. Plenty of notes regarding coaching hires and changes, athletic decisions per COVID-19, Regional Ranking updates, and much more.

Dave also takes the time to say goodbye to Chris Wenzler, Sports Information Director at John Carroll University, who lost his 26-month battle with cancer. This month's show is dedicated in his honor.

You can listen to the podcast here: https://bit.ly/38i86Nc

Hoopsville broadcasts from the WBCA/NABC Studio. All guests are featured on the BlueFrame Technology Hoopsville Hotline. The offseason plan is to do a podcast each month. The shows will be audio-only leading up to the start of the 2020-21 when we will restart the video shows.

If you have questions, ideas, or want to interact with the show, feel free to send them to hoopsville@d3sports.com or use any of the social media options available.

If you enjoy the show via the podcasts, choose your favorite avenue to listen and/or subscribe via the the following four avenues (click on the images when necessary):

We also have the podcast now on Tune-In and others coming. We will update them once we have better abilities to do so.
