    20.3: Happy Thanksgiving

    NOTE: This episode of Hoopsville was recorded and scheduled to be released before games on Tuesday, November 22. However we will unable to get the show turned around in time. We realize that means some references are dated.

    As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, we sat down with not only two brothers who are coaching against one another but fans may not be able to figure out who is coaching which team. Plus, in Division III there is always more going on than just athletics - we celebrate the true student-athlete.

    On the latest episode of Hoopsville, Dave McHugh chats with Adam and Ryan Van Zelst. They played hoops together Albright and later were assistant coaches for the Lions. Now they are facing off against one another as head coaches. How will anyone tell them apart? And will this happen more than once?

    And one of the captains of the Washington & Lee women's basketball team is more than just a great teammate. Tahri Phillips gives back in spades to the college community - wait until you hear all that she is involved with. And she is the only basketball player in DIII (and one of two athletes in the division) to be awarded a Rhodes Scholarship this season. Find out what Phillips is studying and whether she finds sleep every day.

    We also scan the headlines, note results, answer your questions, and much more.

    Guests include:
    - Adam and Ryan Van Zelst, PSU-Abington and Arcadia head coaches respectively
    - Tahri Phillips, W&L senior, co-captain, and Rhodes Scholar

    20.2: Top 25 & Beyond

    20.2: Top 25 & Beyond

    We aren't even two weeks into the latest basketball season and a #1 team has lost and the top five (and more) in men's basketball already have losses. And just how much parity might we actually see in the women's game this season?

    On the latest edition of Hoopsville, Dave McHugh convenes two panels to take a look at the respective Top 25 preseason polls and how teams have fared so far. The panelists have their early-season "Debatable," "Dubious," and "Deep-Dive" selections as well.

    Plus, news, notes, and items that have caught our attention in the opening stretch of the season ... like conference games being played before non-conference games for some.

    Guests include:
    - Men's Top 25 Panel: Bob Quillman, Ryan Scott, and Matt Snyder
    - Women's Top 25 Panel: Gordon Mann, Scott Peterson, and Riley Zayas

    19.31: 2021-22 Season Finale

    The 2021-22 season has come to a close, but it isn't over until we put a bow on the season on Hoopsville.

    It might have been three years since we last crowned Division III basketball champions, but the wait was well worth it. Hope and Randolph-Macon seemed to be appropriate champions as well. They were two of the more dominant teams during 2020, 2021, and 2022.

    Tuesday night on Hoopsville, we recap the championships weekend and look back at the 2021-22 season.

    We will talk to both national championship coaches plus chat with both D3hoops.com Players of the Year who are also national champions.

    And we chat with a few friends of the show about not only the championships, but the joys of the full season.

    Guests include (order subject to change):
    - Josh Merkel, No. 1 Randolph-Macon men's coach
    - Buzz Anthony (Randolph-Macon) and Kenedy Schoonveld (Hope), D3hoops.com Players of the Year
    - Brian Morehouse, No. 1 Hope women's coach
    - Pat Coleman, D3hoops.com Editor-in-Chief, and Ryan Scott, D3hoops.com National Columnist

    19.30: Final Fours!

    The Sectional Champions have cut down the nets, but there is still one net everyone wants to actually cut down.

    There are four men's and four women's teams remaining in the NCAA Tournaments. Who will end up being the only ones still standing Saturday night? One of the #1s is still in the tourney while there are no undefeated teams remaining in the women's tourney. And there are some fascinating match-ups ahead in the semi-finals.

    On Monday's Hoopsville, we look back at an exciting weekend of NCAA Tournaments action, but we also look ahead at Thursday's and Friday's semifinal action ... leading up to Saturday's championship games. We will listen back to some of the thoughts from teams from the press conferences this weekend, while also talking to a few coaches and student-athletes. Plus, we get the D3hoops.com crew together to do some reaction and preview work.

    Guests include:
    - Kyle Brummet, No. 15 Wabash men's coach (with D3hoops.com's Pat Coleman)
    - Lukas Isaly, No. 3 Marietta men's senior guard
    - Kenedy Schoonveld, No. 2 Hope women's senior guard
    - Pat Coleman, D3hoops.com Editor-in-Chief

    19.29: Sweet Preview

    If the first weekend of the NCAA Tournaments was exciting, what could the second weekend have in store? We take time to chat with those prepping for the Rounds of 16 and 8 ... hoping to still be playing next week.

    The NCAA Tournaments have been cut down to just a quarter of the teams remaining. Every program has a chance to still be playing next weekend, but who will likely get through to get to the Championship Weekends?

    On Thursday's Hoopsville, we chat with a number of programs and student-athletes about the thrill of tournament play and the pressure of trying to keep championship goals alive.

    Guests include:
    - Jill Pace, No. 11 Tufts women's coach
    - Spencer Spivy, No. 22 Williams men's junior guard
    - Madison Kellione, No. 3 Transylvania women's junior guard
    - Jack Davidson, No. 15 Wabash men's senior guard
    - Cheri Harrer, No. 10 Baldwin Wallace women's coach
