Rochester men's basketball announced yesterday, through a tweet, that there will be a UAA vs NESCAC Crossover Challenge in Men's Basketball with the first one taking place in December. 

Participating teams from the UAA-- Brandeis, Rochester, Emory, Carnegie Mellon

Participating teams from NESCAC-- Bowdoin, Bates, Colby, Middlebury

Given the teams that NESCAC is putting up, I would favor the UAA winning the first edition.  It all depends on the team lineups next season, though-- how many transfers and grad transfers come into the UAA next season, if any, to fill in for people who have finished their NCAA athletic eligiblity will be a factor.

Will they be announcing the official hosts today?

I believe that they did reveal the official hosts last night in the updated men's printed bracket on ncaa.com, with the game times.

According to the updated printed bracket on ncaa.com last night, WPI is playing Rensselaer at 4:30 PM Eastern on Friday, March 11 at Randolph-Macon in the first game of that sectional.  The second game of the sectional is Randolph-Macon vs UMass-Dartmouth at 7:30 PM Eastern, and the winners play on March 12 at 7:30 PM for a spot in Fort Wayne.

Randolph-Macon, Marietta, Illinois Wesleyan, and Case Western Reserve are hosting sectionals March 11 and 12 for the men.

Horsburgh Gym is one of the four sectional round hosting sites, and I expect that Ron Jantz will be doing PxP commentary for the sectional this upcoming weekend. 

An unexpected, but welcome, turn of events.  I am looking forward to watching the action to see if CWRU can make it all the way to Fort Wayne.

Incidentally, CWRU is the only UAA survivor tonight; the three other members of that conference in this tournament -- Emory, WashU, and Rochester -- all bowed out here in the second round.

And now, the first CWRU basketball team (men or women) to successfully advance to the Sweet 16-- the CWRU women bowed out in the second round in the 2001-02 season in their only NCAA DIII basketball tournament appearance to this date.

Congratulations to the Case Western Reserve Spartans on not only being the sole survivor of the UAA men in the second round this season, but on also becoming the first CWRU basketball team (men or women) to successfully advance to the Sweet 16.

In 2002, the CWRU women, under then head coach (now Smith athletic director) Kristen Hughes, finished at 20-7 after being knocked out in the second round of the NCAA DIII women's basketball tournament by St. Lawrence (coached by a young G.P. Gromacki).  That year, CWRU defeated Mt. St. Mary in the first round in Newburgh, NY, before heading to Canton, NY for second round action in a field of 50 teams. (St. Lawrence had a first round bye that year, and advanced to the national championship game before losing to Stevens Point.)

Now on is Oswego State vs Hood from Swarthmore-- watching this on the Centennial Digital Network on Roku.

Just a little over an hour before the UAA teams start first round play-- with Rochester vs Eastern at 4:15 PM Eastern in the first of 4 games involving UAA teams today.

For DIII fans in New England, Williams tipping off at 3:20 PM vs Neumann (at Mount Union), and UMass-Dartmouth playing Emerson with a tip time of 3:35 PM Eastern from Nazareth (That feed is on the Empire 8 channel for those watching on Roku.)

31 men's first round games left, as well as 32 first round games on the women's side today.

It has been a few years, but today is probably the best day of the year for a diehard fan of D3 Hoops.  The teams have started on the roads to Fort Wayne (men) and Pittsburgh (women.)

Just an update regarding how to order DIII Championship merchandise on line--

The actual website that one can order the merchandise from is:  event1teamstore.com

If you place a "dot" between event1 and teamstore.com, it just refers you to fanatics.com

The merchandise is custom ordered and printed on demand-- but an individual can create an account on the Event1 website and place an order for the DIII Championship merchandise.  Unless you buy the merchandise direct at the tournament sites, the items will take 3 to 4 weeks to ship to you.

The cheapest t-shirts go for $30 and are only available up to a 2xl size.  The $30 price is the going price for t-shirts that have the sectional fields for second weekend action.

T-shirts with the entire field on them have a going price of $32 from Event1.

Personally, I have never seen the DIII Basketball Tournament paraphernalia (t-shirts and hats) available to order on-line.  It looks exclusive to be sold to people who personally attend the DIII Tournament games.

I think the NCAA could make a little more money if some of the tournament merchandise could be bought on-line, especially this season where fans who otherwise might go to the early round games may elect to stay home and watch them on streaming video either to save some money, or to have the option to eat snacks and beverages while watching.

4:15 PM Eastern update-- CWRU men's basketball coach Todd McGuiness referred me to a link that took me to fanatics.com, and I have taken a look at that link and shopncaasports.com before, but those sites are very Division 1 centric, and if I wanted merchandise from the upcoming Division 1 men's and women's basketball tournaments, those would be very easy to purchase on line for the reason that Division 1 caters to the general public's entertainment needs as their primary purpose.  I have never found merchandise from the DII and DIII tournaments available for on-line purchase, but I have found plenty from DI tournaments.
