Looks like Danzig is about 2 years late bringing in a point.

With no real post presence with Matt's graduation, I guess they'll be dishing to the wings for more Royals basketball...bombs away.

We'll see.
Not sure he's a fulltime, 30 minute per game kind of player.
Thinking back on post players that never really had a point setting them up:
*Brenden Boken
*John Vitkus
*Drew Schankweiler
*Matt Mancuso
Better late than never.

The off season has hit August and with it has come news of Division III Fall Championships being canceled for the same reason Winter Championships were derailed and Spring Championships pulled earlier this year: COVID 19 Pandemic.

The decision came on the heals of a vast majority of DIII institutions curtailing fall sports and many pushing winter sports starts on their campuses until January at the earliest.

What does this mean for the 2020-21 season of college basketball? Specifically what does it mean for Division III? Will there be a basketball season? Will it be a six-week-or-so-sprint? Or is there a way to adjust things?

On the Mid-Summer edition of the Hoopsville Podcast, we try and get some answers to those questions. We talk to one coach who actually has put together a proposal to start the season in January, with some changes to make it work including crowning a champion in April. And we talk to an administrator who also serves on the DIII Management Council to better under stand the decisions made to cancel championships and if shift a season like basketball is even possible.

Plus, we honor the best of the best in the last decade of Division III women's basketball. Gordon Mann joins us to discuss how the 2nd D3hoops.com Women's All-Decade came together (and hints of work on the men's list).

Guests include:
- Philip Ponder, Oglethorpe men's coach
- Jason Fein, Bates Athletics Director and DIII Management Council member
- Gordon Mann, D3hoops.com Senior Editor

And of course, there is always the Hoopsville Notebook. A few things we take note of that have made headlines since the beginning of July. We also tip our hat to a few of those who have always helped the show be it's best.

You can listen to the podcast here: https://bit.ly/3kGZ962

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.

Bridgton is an all boys, all PG boarding school in Maine.  I actually interviewed to be their admissions director 20 years ago. :)

It's a historically strong program, playing against a lot of the New England Prep Schools and holding its own.  They've had a few dozen alumni go DI, but I don't know what their track record has been recently.

A lot of reasons alums go D1 is because they use the PG year to get their grades and scores up to get into D1 schools. Pretty common tactic. Not always are the PG years for any other reason.

Scranton's roster is up.  No surprises:  all available returners are on it, as are the four announced newcomers.

Hopefully they'll be able to play this winter...

Thanks Tim,

Best case is January is that correct? Conference only? I assume no fans...
