Isn't Wesley dropping its athletic teams in 2021 after they get merged with Delaware State?

We don't know yet.  They're negotiating all those issues during this academic year.  None of the details were decided before the merger; they just had to move forward for financial reasons.

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.

If you have questions, ideas, or want to interact with the show, feel free to send them to hoopsville@d3sports.com or use any of the social media options available.

Elms to the GNAC.

NECC gets hit again.

this will put the NECC under the 7-team threshold even in the women's sports that were just hanging on because of Bay Path. I don't know if there's anyone out there they can go get to help them.

I'm sure there will be more changes coming - and certainly some small schools will not be in business after this year anyway.  I'd imagine every current member of the NECC is in a pretty precarious position with regards to enrollment and funding.  You'll see a lot of changes before Elms actually leaves.

Shoot, the NECC only has six men's teams this year, even with Elms still in the fold.  They know they have work to do.

This ought to be year one of the grace period, meaning without any additions Elms is leaving as the conference falls into Pool B.

Any word on the motivations of these institutions to go the NAIA route?

Fewer requirements, chance for scholarships. At least for Iowa Wes. I suspect d3 doesn't have the same recruiting value for LC, in their part of the world. They also rely on money games to fund their program, which kills playoff access in d3.
