The Bears are in fact getting a new wood floor.  From pics on UC's website, some new scoreboards are being put into place as well.  I've been waiting to see if new bleachers were purchased as well.  I cant wait to the finished product.

I saw the pictures of the new Ursinus basketball floor.  It looks really nice.  I wish they had that floor when I played.

Folks -

Now that the students are returning to campus, D-III basketball pratices and the season can't be that far behind. It is just one and one-half months until practice starts and only two and one-half months until tip-off!

Does anyone have any news to report on recruiting, non-returning underclassmen, or injuries, etc? How will the Centennial Conference shake out this year? Who are the favorites? Any predictions?

Let's get this room buzzing again. Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend if Ernesto stays away. Welcome back! Regards to all.

Eric

Fellow Diplomat And Centennial Conference Fans -

Finally! At long last, Franklin And Marshall College has posted the schedule for the coming 2006-2007 Men's Basketball Season on its Athletics Department Web-page. The link to the schedule appears below:

http://godiplomats.cstv.com/sports/m-baskbl/sched/frma-m-baskbl-sched.html

Can the season be that far behind? I am ready for it to begin now!  Regards to all. Good luck!

Drat! I hate it when a team schedeule shows a tourney, but fails to list the participants. It's positively un-American .... :P

Aye, the hubris of F&M, assuming three CC tourney dates...

A couple of days ago, the Ursinus schedule was posted.

Please note that the CC tournament will be played again at Ursinus as the "Home" team. Can anyone spell dynasty  :D

Since practices started up this week, I was wondering what some people see happening around the conference this year.  UC returns three starters from last years championship squad but have a huge transition to go through at point guard with the graduation of McGarvey.  Talking to some players, they still believe they are the team to beat regardless of who is on the court (gotta love the confidence).  I can't blame them considering their past success under Coach Small.  I see them finishing second in the regular season this year.  My up and coming team is Swarthmore, great returning nucleus for the Garnet.  Washington will struggle this year because of youth and loss of 7 seniors.  Hopkins, UC, and Muhlenberg should be contenders.  Not really sure what F & M and G'burg have this year.  Can't count either team out though, great programs

Leo -

The Coaches' Poll usually is released during the first week or second week of November. You can always check the Conference website to see if it is out early:

http://www.centennial.org

I don't know about you. However, I can hardly wait for the new season to begin! Good luck this season.

Thanks Eric for the info.

Looking forward to see who the coaches list as the front runners/favorites.

I am sure that the coaches will take into consideration the Bear's 3 out 4 Conference Titles, and the added home court advantage with that new shiny floor.  :D  The significant number of seniors lost from the team last year should not have an effect (tongue in cheek   ;D)

The national pre-season poll for Division III is listed below. Note that Hopkins and Ursinus were the only two CC teams receiving votes. A prelude of who the top 2 teams will be this year?   8)

Unfortunately for the Centennial Conference, they're ranked 37th and 53rd.  Hopefully the Centennial Conference can end up with a better representation.
