I had a greta grandma named Pansy im sure ill never meet another.

on the basketball front Rose is getting reay to practice with masks on I cant even imagine.  I had a discussion with the commissioner of the confrence as of now schools can schedule their own non confrence games but of course its hard to find other schools though that may be changing.   With the big 10 changing and highs chool sports deciding to play in the fall and th avaiability of testing may  signal changes.   At Rose I think i last checked it was 6k in tests and 5 students positive. Rose is very aggressive testing every week.  So hopefully we have turned the corner.

Only 5 covid-positive students at RHIT tells us the students have really cooperated with the spread-prevention efforts of the university. That's a very honorable accomplishment.
Keep it up, I say. Don't abandon successful behavior.

I guess we're unlikely to see a resurgence of old-fashioned names like Eunice, Mildred and Chlorine.

You never know which grandpa & grandma names will enjoy a revival. A decade ago, who would've thought that anyone would ever again name their daughter Elsa? Now, thanks to Disney, Elsas are thick on the ground in America's preschools and kindergartens. Two generations ago, Emily was considered to be the ultimate old-lady name. But I'm sure that if you scanned the current rosters of various D3 women's athletics teams, you'd find plenty of Emilies. According to one source, the top eight girl-baby names in the U.S. in 2020 are Olivia, Emma, Ava, Sophia, Isabella, Charlotte, Amelia, and Mia. Those are all names that hadn't been in vogue since before World War II, but they all came back into style in the '90s and they've been big ever since.

Same goes with boys. There's nobody my age named Max, but the nursing homes and the elementary schools of our great land have more than their fair share of Maxes. (And if major-league baseball rosters are any indication, the name Max is now well into its second generation of revived popularity.) Just within my own small church there's an Elliott and an Everett, and a Noah and a Hayden, that are all below kindergarten age, and all come from different families. The church building hosts a daycare that includes preschoolers named Felix, Leo, and Thaddeus. Those are all names that I thought would never make a comeback, but there you go.

Will there be a 2020-21 NCAA Division III basketball season? If so what will it look like? What will the post-season look like?

It is on the mind of student-athletes, coaches, administrators, parents, and fans for several weeks, if not months, now. We are finally understanding what it may look like as a number of decisions or proposals are now making their way around Division III.

In this month's podcast, Dave McHugh not only downloads all the things being considered and the likely outcomes, but tries to give listeners an understanding of how much is still unknown despite some things becoming more clear.

McHugh also talks to Texas-Dallas women's basketball coach Polly Thomason for her take. Thomason has been in the Division III Women's Basketball National Committee for several years and is this season's chair of the committee. She also serves on the WBCA Board of Governors. Thomason not only provides her perspective on much of what is going on not only in Division III, but in women's basketball as well.

And of course, there is always the Hoopsville Notebook. Unfortunately, there is some sad news in the Notebook this month, but also news to celebrate especially when it comes to DIII alums making news in the NBA.

You can listen to the podcast here: https://bit.ly/3kMl0rZ

Hoopsville broadcasts from the WBCA/NABC Studio. All guests are featured on the BlueFrame Technology Hoopsville Hotline. The offseason plan is to do a podcast each month. The shows will be audio-only leading up to the start of the 2020-21 when we will restart the video shows.

The Lindsay Ippel career is celebrated here as one of the best in conference WBB history :
https://cciw.org/news/2020/10/13/womens-basketball-cciw-legacy-series-lindsay-ippel-millikin-university.aspx
To clarify some numbers : she made 121 FTs in 14 conference games in the '06-'07 season and scored 371 pts in 14 conference games in the '07-'08 season.
Her freshman season was quite a story. Millikin had a lot of good frontcourt players and Lindsay played 0 minutes in the team's first several games.
I believe it was a season-ending injury to multi-skilled point-forward Karin Olson which opened up further opportunity for Ippel.
Lindsay ended up scoring a game-high 25 pts in Millikin's D3 championship victory on 3/19/05. She scored in the 20s in 5 of their final 6 games that season.
I think we can also credit coach Lori Kerans for getting Ippel ready to step in and prosper when the chance came.

 I was at that game(Scranton played in the 3rd place game); didn't realize that Lindsay was only a freshman; that was a major contribution to a championship. What I did remember from the game was the flawless performance of PG Audrey Minott, so much so that she was the bar that I've used to evaluate PG prospects ever since.

Roger

Have you heard anything on WashU having a tournament in a bubble.  I have heard that they are and there is a chance Rose will be one of the participants if approved to play non confrence by admin.   Rose admin has to sign off on any schools they visit on their covid precautions that they meet their standards which may be tricky as Rose has set the bar for colleges.   They have had only 5 positive tests.  Everyone there gets tested weekley. The students could not step on the campus at the beginning without a negative covid test.

No, I haven't heard anything about that.
From what you've heard, might it be more than four teams? Maybe 8 or 16?

I was told by my daughters head coach and all the girls have another year of egilbility.  So I don’t know if he was just assuming.    When I asked her if she and the other girls would play a 5th year.  Her reply oh dad we can’t play we will be working making 6 figures.  My only hope is whoever’s hires her offers to pay for the masters   I think it’s great they are doing it.   I talked to the commissioner of her conference and just said I think it’s to easy for people to dismiss d3 players as they are students first.  But they have put time and sweat and love into their games and I would say maybe love the game more because of how hard the academics are at a lot of d3 schools.  Not a lot of communication majors.
