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?

We are finally understanding what it may look like as a number of decisions or proposals are now making their way around Division III.

8/9/2020
The off season has hit August and with it has come news of Division III Fall Championships being canceled for the same reason Winter Championships were derailed and Spring Championships pulled earlier this year: COVID 19 Pandemic.

17.34: June Podcast

6/29/2020
First, we apologize for the "June Podcast" showing up in early July. Computer problems caused havoc this month. Sadly, it delayed our production plans for several weeks, but we are calling this our June edition all the same. When the season came to a sudden close, it left a lot of unfinished business on our end. We didn't have national champions to talk to, but we also had a lot of news to cover. This podcast we take some time to do some catching-up with the season's number one men's team...

In what is the first of a two-part May Podcast, Dave chat with some of those who announced their retirements since the season ended. What drove them to the decision to walk away? What will they...

17.31: State of DIII

4/19/2020
It has been a few years since Division III found itself at a place where so many important decisions needed to be made along with other events needing time and attention. However, never in NCAA history have we found ourselves with winter championships cut short, no spring sports at all, and more questions than answers for what might happen with fall sports and beyond. COVID-19 has certainly made it's mark. However, the coronavirus isn't the only important item in front of Division III that...
