Is there a "host" hotel in Ft Wayne that might have special rates?

Wouldn't that be a participating school thing?

I've been looking for the hotel that offers special rates to d3boards.com Hall of Famers.

No luck yet.

I thought maybe the NCAA might have designated a nearby  hotel to be the main hotel and may have negotiated rates for people attending the Final Four.  I never went to Salem so I don't know how these things work.

I think someone should start a "GoFundMe" page for Sager.

The hotels designated by NCAA will be for teams and officials.  Those hotels will have NCAA rates but you usually have find out which ones from the teams. 
Most hotels in Salem had NCAA rates but ... you had to ask for them.  For example, we used to make reservations in Salem well in advance.  Once we knew the team would be in Fianl Four, you call the hotel and ask for the rate.  I would think that might be the case in Ft Wayne. No hotel wants to lose rooms to a competitor.

Was bored at work and didn't know if this data was readily available so I complied a list of all the games played in the Division III Tournament from 1975-2018 using the D3Hoops Playoff History Tab. I was wondering who had the most wins, losses, Best win %, and most wins by round. It is all in an excel that I can't post on here since 1) it's excel and 2) it's way too big.

A brief run down of what I found was following:

Top 5 Wins

Top 5 Win % (Min. of 25 tournament games played)

2. Amherst - 0.707
3. Augustana - 0.696
4. Illinois Wesleyan - 0.680
5. UW-Whitewater - 0.679

Top 5 Round of 64 Wins
T1. Illinois Wesleyan - 14
T1. Wooster - 14
3. Wash U - 12
T4. 4 Teams (Hope, John Carroll, UW-Whitewater, and Williams) - 11

Top 5 Round of 32 Wins
1.  Illinois Wesleyan - 18
2. Franklin & Marshall - 17
3. Wittenberg - 16

T2. UW-Stevens Point - 4
T2. UW-Whitewater - 4
T5. 6 Teams (Amherst, Calvin, Potsdam St., Scranton, St. Thomas, and Wash U) - 2

Long list, if any one is interested in the complete file, let me know and I can email it to you.

Don't feel too badly about it. I did the exact same thing that you did -- I, too, kept a running tally of D3 tourney stats for years before one day, while wandering through the ncaa.org site looking for something else, I stumbled across the D3 tourney results link.

It is now or never.

The last week of the Division III basketball regular season is here. Conferences will decide who will earn automatic bids to the NCAA Tournaments and teams try and position themselves for at-large bids, hosting opportunities, and bracketing considerations.

For teams who have been faltering, this is the last chance to right the ship. For programs which have underachieved, this is the last opportunity to live up to expectations. And of course for those with Cinderella dreams, this is the chance to try on the glass slipper.

Sunday's Hoopsville will cover it all in a special, extended, episode which for the first time (outside of Marathon programming) will feature a guest from each of the eight regions. We will also discuss which teams may be on the bubble, who has most likely secured at-large bid, and which teams need to win the AQs. Plus, we talk about how regions as we know it now could very well change in the future.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Sunday's show will hit the air at 6:00 p.m. ET. It can be watched live right here: http://bit.ly/2EeG5ZE (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 below.

Guests Schedule (order subject to change):
- Katherine Bixby, Johns Hopkins women's coach
- Jonathan Crosthwaite, Occidental men's senior
- Marc Brown, NJCU men's coach
- Justin LeBlanc, Millsaps women's coach
- Jamie Seward, SUNY New Paltz women's coach
- Marcos Echevarria, No. 17 Nichols men's senior
- Herman Carmichael, La Roches men's coach
- Klay Knueppel, Wisconsin Luthern women's coach
- Brad Bankston, ODAC Commissioner
