As cited above,

Centenary LA joins the SCAC in 2012-13.

Actually this makes sense from a "macro" point of view.  Stablizing the southwest with 2 solid conferences will help with playoff appearances and hosting first round games.

Even with McMurry and Centenary leaving, the ASC has 14 teams and the SCAC will have 6.  In fact, the movement of 2 more teams from the ASC to the SCAC makes sense.  I don't know who is acceptable to the SCAC in this part of the country from the ranks of D-III.

Bard leaves Skyline for LL in 2011-2012

Rochester Institute of Technology has left the Empire 8 league and has also joined the Liberty League. The LL now has 9 members and the Empire 8 is back to 8 members. I hope Bard did some major recruiting in basketball. It may be several years before they can get a conference win.

Good place to also discuss ELIGIBILITY questions...

Spalding, who will likely be favored in the SLIAC race, is in their final year of Ineligibility...  they will not be in the conference tourney..

What about Geneva.... are they eligible this year in the PrAC?
The only thing not to be liked in Florida is no D3 hoops!!!

I have Geneva as a full member this year, so they should be eligible for the PrAC AQ.

Here's who I have as being in the provisional pipeline:

Year 4 (full member in '12-13)
Penn State-Abington
Spalding
SUNY-Cobleskill

Year 3 (full member in '13-14)
Berry
Covenant

Year 2 (full member in '14-15)
Centenary (La.)

Year 1 (full member in '15-16)
(none)

Exploratory Year
Houghton
Georgetown (Ky)
Kentucky Wesleyan
Sarah Lawrence
Southern Virginia
SUNY-Canton
Valley Forge Christian

Games against provisional teams in years three and four of the process can count as regional games

The championship handbook is the place to start:
http://www.ncaa.org/wps/portal/ncaahome?WCM_GLOBAL_CONTEXT=/ncaa/NCAA/Sports+and+Championship/General+Information/championship+handbooks

They probably won't have this years' update posted until December or January.

I'm assuming then, since they're officially a SCIAC member now, that they won't be pool B eligible (even though they're not Pool A eligible with their conference). Is this correct?

So in order for Chapman to make the tournament, they'll have to earn a Pool C bid?
