What school has the best chance to knock off Husson this year come playoff time? NEC looks good but they had a rough weekend in Maine last week. Colby Sawyer has the talent but didn't fare well in their first match-up with the Eagles. Is UMF the quiet sleeper? Looking forward to their game against Husson on the 14th.

I had a sneaky suspicion about this game. Where does NEC play the playoff games now that they most likely will host? That gym can't facilitate 4 teams and their fans.

Last I knew... the team that earned it. And last I checked, not all four teams or fan bases tend to be in the gym at the same time. ;)

OK wise guy I know they earned it and they are the top seed but have you ever been in that gym? Four rows of bleachers on one side. Two feet on the baseline and two locker rooms in the entire building. And seeing how there is 25 min between the first and second game, you need more than 2 locker rooms and yes fans from 4 schools will be in the gym at once.

Maybe they just put an hour between games?  It's not too hard to work around that.  Lots of small New England schools have similar facility issues.  They'll work it out.

They will work it out.. and they won't punish a team. It isn't like these are money makers. The only restrictions on gyms comes at the NCAA tournament level.

The NCAA men's basketball regional advisory committees released their third set of rankings, and as expected, the Atlantic Region was among those getting shuffled. Here's the full list: http://www.d3hoops.com/notables/2018/02/men-regional-rankings-third

​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
