Congrats to Rochester on advancing to the sweet 16.

Chicago and Wash U were eliminated in the second round of the NCAA DIII Women's Basketball tournament yesterday, but congrats to the Maroons and the Bears on excellent seasons.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch the show LIVE starting at 7pm ET right here:http://bit.ly/2FBCA0N.

If you didn't hear... Hall-Gregory has resigned from NYU. Her spouse was hired by Albany. Was told the resignation was known over the weekend, I just didn't feel we were in a position to announce it accordingly. NYU announced Monday morning.

I feel bad that the UAA Women's Basketball teams get next to no love here, but I'll say, the Washington University women played brilliantly in the wins over No. 17 Chicago and ORV Emory.

Congratulations to WashU head coach Randi Henderson on reaching 200 wins for her career!  #200 came at NYU last night, as the Bears posted a 76-61 victory. 

This team is becoming very dangerous.  I thought the Bears would be UAA contenders and NCAA Tourney applicants, but injuries and illnesses late in the non-conference portion of the season threatened to derail their hopes.  Henderson has done a fantastic job IMOH of getting the ship patched up and sailing nicely, after the 66-36 loss to then #3 St. Thomas.  Instead of a psychological free-fall, Randi has been able to boost the team into a tie for first place in the UAA standings.

Long outlet passes in transition has produced some easy baskets and opponent fatigue in the Bears' 5-game winning streak; an inside-out approach to the offense has benefited both Madeline Homoly (27p/13r last night, 22.2 ppg in the last 5 games) and Rachael Sondag (9-20 from 3-point range in the last 4 games, 45%) has seemingly not had as much pressure to carry the team in scoring, and it has benefited her 3pt%.  Improved bench scoring and depth in the last 5 games has also been a boon to the Bears' recent success...with a 30-4 bench advantage vs. NYU last night, and a 170-54 edge over the last 5 games.

WashU has to keep this roll going with a win at Brandeis tomorrow to ensure at least a tie atop the UAA standings with Case...since Case comes to WashU next Sunday after Carnegie Mellon's visit next Friday.

WashU was taken to the last second or so before it could get a much-needed road win Friday night.

With the Bears leading 60-58, Kristina Schmelter blocked a game-tying shot from Makayla Filiere with 5 seconds left, and Madeline Homoly got the ball and was fouled.  Homoly made one out of two free throws for a 61-58 lead, then the Bears had a foul to give and gave it with one second left.  Carnegie Mellon couldn't get a shot to the basket and WashU took the win in Pittsburgh.

Caroline Ballard has been exceptional in the past six games, averaging 11.5 ppg.  Last night, she enjoyed posting a career-high 20 points on 5-5 shooting from beyond the arc.  She also shared the rebounding lead with Homoly by grabbing 7 boards.  Homoly had 13 points, and Schmelter had 8 points and 5 rebounds off the bench.

Tough result to take for Carnegie Mellon, who played a 2-3 zone with fantastic lateral movement.  WashU found it much tougher to score last night than the previous Friday in St. Louis.  Tartans made it especially difficult to lob entry passes to Homoly, and the Bears shot a lot of errant 3s over the zone (5-19, 26%).  The Bears were able to get to the free throw line 18 times, making 14.  Carnegie Mellon was only 5 for 9 from the charity stripe, as the Bears weren't very charitable after all.

Points off turnovers were heavily in WashU's favor:  13-4.  Bears get credit for shutting off opportunities to score points off of their 12 turnovers...a paltry ratio of 0.33 points from each turnover.  WashU got a much better exchange rate, 13 points from 13 Tartan turnovers.

Wash-U maintains a 2-game lead in the UAA:  Bears 8-0, Chicago 6-2, Emory 5-3, Case 4-4.  WashU has a dangerous game Sunday at Case, where there are veteran scorers aplenty on the Spartans' side.  It can't afford to be sleepy in Cleveland...

What a weekend!

It was one of those sets of days we have seen often in Division III where at every turn there was something to watch, a result to ponder, and upset to breakdown. The hardwoods across the country had games worth watching all with just three weeks left in the regular season.

It started with Dave and Pat's trip to Holland, Michigan to witness the 200th meeting of Calvin and Hope. The game at DeVos Fieldhouse lived up to expectations. From the crowd to the battle on the court, every moment was a thrill ride.

And the Super Weekend didn't stop there. A number of teams in both Top 25s took losses that not only will shake up the polls, but also shakes up conferences races and adds plenty of intrigue for the first Regional Rankings to be released this week. Oh, and a 200-point explosion from a high-powered offense!

On this special, Monday, edition of Hoopsville, Dave and guests have plenty to try and breakdown. Dave will share his reactions from "The Rivalry" and you will hear one of the crazier stories on how a mom names a son. Plus, hear about the Greenville-Fontbonne game which saw 346 points put on the board. And coaches from Hamilton men and East Texas Baptist women along with one of the top players for WashU women give us insight on how their teams are doing.

Ryan Scott also joins Dave as they give their initial reactions to the latest Top 25 polls and more.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Monday's show can be see LIVE here: http://bit.ly/2UGhZw2 (and simulcast on Facebook Live and Periscope).

If you have questions about Division III basketball, feel free to send them and we will answer them on a the show. Email them to dave.mchugh@d3sports.com or use any of the social media options to the right.

Guests Schedule (order subject to change):
- George Barber, Greenville men's head coach
- Adam Stockwell, No. 8 Hamilton
- Becca Clark-Callender, WashU. women's senior guard
- "What Is In a Name?," Dina Hackert, Hope '91
- Rusty Rainbolt, No. 15 East Texas Baptist women's coach
- Ryan Scott, D3hoops.com senior writer (Top 25 Double-Take)

Before they begin their final road games of the season Friday night, the WashU Bears were able to get a convincing 81-62 road win at Case-Western Reserve last Sunday.  As a result, the Bears extended their winning streak to 10 games, and they moved up to #21 in the WBCA Top 25 poll.  And, most importantly, WashU maintained its two-game lead in the UAA standings over Chicago.

The Bears' offense has certainly been impressive in the 10-game winning streak, averaging over 80 ppg.  But, what is becoming just as impressive is their team defense.  They held hosts Carnegie Mellon and Case to 58 and 62 points respectively last weekend; and in the winning streak, the highest opponent FG% in a game was Case's 42% in an 82-79 WashU victory.  Last Sunday at Case, the Bears held the Spartans to 34% overall shooting and 29% 3-point shooting...against a team that at one point was averaging 74 points/game to lead the UAA. 

What was also impressive was the Bears' ability to limit offensive output from Hillary Hellmann (9 points on 4-15 shooting) and Kendall McConico (4 points on 2-7 shooting).  Kara Hageman had an impressive performance (22p/13r/3bk), but the Bears had an edge in points off turnovers (12-5) and overall rebounding (51-38).  The rebounding edge has also translated into fast-break points with the Bears enjoying an 11-2 advantage.

So...WashU embarks on the marathon-distance road swing to Emory and then to Rochester.  The Eagles will dig in their heels, since they are on the verge of UAA title elimination with a 6-3 conference record.  Rochester has struggled this season, but it will be keen on getting its chance to damage WashU's title hopes Sunday morning.  One step at a time is the rule of the evening Friday, the way the 10-game winning streak has been built.
