Well here I am at Anderson university.  Maybe tonight will be the night.   We have a girl go 5 for 5 they decide to shoot 60 percent from free throw.  The refs give us the benefit on calls.  All the girls remember you know what I was really good in high school.  I do know how to pass and dribble. I do remember what itís like to score a basket. 

Most importantly to remember when they were the puncher and not the punching bag.  I think people have been right all the teams have taken their pound of flesh.  They knew they were beatable so they have gotten everyoneís best and sustained game.  Now the bloodletting is almost over it will be interesting how the 2nd go around gos

20-16. Losing at half.  Nosa is killing it inside but her free throw shooting is such a disvantage not making them pay for fouling her.  Difference in game 4 3s to 0 for rose.  Kid is playing excellent defense has hit the floor hard twice already playing with a hip flexor proud of her sucking it up.  She needs to shoot the dam ball

Still some big holes to plug, particularly on the perimeter (which could get exposed Saturday-Transy is GOOD on the perimeter) - but looked more like the team I think everyone was expecting - best basketball they've played since the first half of the WashU game. They seemed to really tank after the Nashville trip - what was in the water down there?
 If they can get Igiehon to play that hard on a consistent basis, she'll be an All-American before she's done. My God she is athletic. That steal she had towards the end of the game where she just took the ball away from #24 Moore as she was leaving the ground for a lay-up was just sublime. Her stat line says it all: 18 points (should have been 28-30 between blown lay-ups and missed FT's), 21 rebounds, and 7 blocks.
Burnham reminds me of a working man's Chiarra Franklin, and #21 Barlow, their 6'1 post, will only get better as well. Jester, your kid has had her troubles scoring this year, but she really sees the floor, defends, and once she gains some confidence and gets healthy, will be a really good all-around player.
I've said all along, the future is bright if they all come back and they recruit as well as they always have.

They are a re pounding monster team already.  I told my kid even though she scored 4 she affected the game on both ends of the floor.   Held her defensive assignments she was guarding one of their top scorers to 0 points.   The play she made when Nosa was shooting the free throw and kahlan was the only person coach had in the lane.  She fought off 3 defenders and was able to tip it Nosa for her to make a layup. Then she immediately got 2 turnovers.   We talked a About finishing better itís another game where she could have easily been in double figures and she only shot a few times   

Key to game 14 turnovers only.  The senior guard woody came through with a huge 3 the only one of the game and was clutch on free throws down the line.   They still reside in brick city but itís getting better with the shooting

It seems to be a down year for most in the HCAC this season.

Transylvania looks like they are going to run the table. Hanover will probably beat everyone except Transy and the other 8 seem to be an 'any given night' group. Before last night I would of guessed that Franklin, Bluffton and Manchester were good candidates to earn playoff spots, but Franklin losing at home gives me doubt about them being a sure thing. With 11 conference games yet to be played, it would not surprise me to see anyone of the 8 teams fill out the playoff spots 3-6.

There are six weeks left in the regular season, but the grind of conference schedules can make it feel like the end is a long ways off.

As teams try and focus on each game in front of them, the ramifications of each outcome grow larger and larger. Conference tournament seeding (or even participating), at-large hopes, and to a larger degree opportunities to be home in March with the hopes of a national championship as the goal.

Thursday on Hoopsville, we chat with a few programs that are on top of their conference races (or were), but the standing could change in just one game. We chat about how teams deal with being everyone's target or how to survive the grind.

Plus, relationships with a program's alumni can go a long way to how successful the program becomes and even the institution on a larger scale. In this week's WBCA Center Court, MIT coach Sonia Raman discusses what prompted her to get alums more involved and how it has resulted in a significant increase in contributions as well.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch Thursday's show LIVE starting at 7:00 pm ET in the following ways:
- Main page: www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville

- Team1 Sports: www.team1sports.com/Hoopsville/
- Team1 Sports app (Android TV, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, Roku) - you will either find it under the "live" section or search for the Hoopsville channel

Thursday's show primarily covers the East, Great Lakes, Mid-Atlantic, and West Regions while also featuring a women's coach in the WBCA Center Court segment. All men's coaches appear in the NABC Coach's Corner. And all guests are featured on the BlueFrame Technology Hoopsville Hotline.

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 hoopsville@d3hoops.com or use any of the social media options.

Trany
Defiance
Rose
Bluffton
franklin

May I suggest that if anyone want's to shorten Transylvania ... this is NOT how it's done. Transy works.

I realize it might be a typo, but I also realize that some would take exception to it as well.

Congrats to Rose on getting that first win. Looks like turnovers were better and more action inside. Huge night for Igiehon.

Franklin just couldn't hit anything the final 5 minutes. They went 1 for 12 to finish the game, 0 for 4 from three. MSJ won it at the line, they were 23 of 29 while Franklin was just 6 of 14.

so i got a negative for spelling trany for short seems reasonable shortening. If you get upset by that you are really  going out of your way to be offended. If we are going to take umbrage at Trany when its obvious there is no disrespect and why does one have to automatically go there and more importantly that a transgender person is going to get triggered by seeing a shortening of a school's name is some how mean spirited or offensive is actually in my opinion very condescending to that person.  So there will be no apologies but at the same time if Transy makes the world a little brighter I can do that as well.
