Hartwick beats Nazareth in the Empire 8 final in a game they controlled throughout. One bid league for the E8 this year.

Hartwick has a difficult first round matchup playing at SUNY Purchase. Purchase has all upperclassmen in their starting lineup and has great size all across the board highlighted by a 7'0 behemoth manning the middle. Hartwick will need a huge performance from Jared Suderley to keep pace.

Can't comment much on Purchase.  Saw them once this year....in November the second day of the season @ Eastern.  Their 7 foot guy Joel Neri only started playing basketball like 2 or 3 years ago.  Andre Nixon is the guard to keep an eye on.  Outside of Mount St. Mary & Purchase, the Skyline was pretty dreadful, so even though they have a really good record, they've only really beaten Eastern Connecticut & Brockport in the quality wins department.  Lost a close game @ Albertus, and beat Mitchell by 14 are their only other 2 games they've played against tournament teams, and have 3 wins by an average of 13.3 points against 21-6 Mount St. Mary.

I saw Purchase a few times last year so I'm familiar with both Nixon and Neri. One thing I did not notice until this morning was that these two teams faced each other last year to start the season. Purchase won that game that had Neri seemingly to be a difference maker. Hartwick will need to figure out a way to combat Purchase's size.

Another Great season of Division 3 hoops! As a young kid i feel very happy that i am around these coaches and players who dedicate winter after winter to there teams! I love how Division 3 is a small community like atmosphere especially in the East Region. Was hoping Nazareth would be in the NCAAS and was Heartbroken that these seniors never won an Empire 8 championship or clinched a berth in the NCAA Tournament. Great years are coming with Coach Broderick at the helm.

Enjoyed chatting with everyone on the boards again this year!

In the news that slipped by me recently.

Greg Dunne from Brockport State was recently named as the winner of the  2014 Glenn Robinson Award which is presented annually to the National Coach of the Year. There were 12 finalists nominated from Division III schools and Greg was chosen as the winner and presented the award on April 4th during the Division I Final Four competition in Dallas Texas.

Nice to see a coach from the East Region grab that honor. Congratulations Coach Dunne  on a great season.
