November 20th, 2021 - The 2022-2023 season is here!
The season flip is finished! You can start recruiting, exchanging/promoting assistant coaches, setting your depth chart etc. Exhibition games will start on Monday. Good luck to all!

November 18th, 2021 - Roll Tide Roll!
The Penguins were heartbroken – superstar Brian Hofmeister pulled up lame for the Tournament Finals! But in the first half, the Crimson Tide with their already stacked lineup, failed to take advantage of the depleted Penguins and trailed 41-37. However, the second half was a different story, Alabama asserted itself and outscored Dominican by 15 and went on to claim the national title with an 85-74 score. Dan Nash (any relation to Steve Nash?) dominated the game and was named the Player of the Game. He had 35 points with eight 3-pointers and a +13 plus/minus. Congratulations to plokmijn and the Alabama Crimson Tide on their first national title! Also, congratulations to newcomer BigMacWilson and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (Division II tournament winners) and to OrganFailure and the Idaho Vandals (Division III tournament winners).

November 16th, 2021 - Final Four
The Final Four is here again! This season sees two teams from the top conference and a couple of teams from lower conferences. In our first semi-final game the #1 seeded Alabama Crimson Tide (III.1, 42-5, TPI 164.6) will face off with the #5 seeded Toledo Rockets (I.1, 32-13, TPI 157.1). In the other semi-final game, it’s the #5 seeded Dominican Univ. of California Penguins (I.1, 33-12, TPI 154.4) going up against the #5 seeded Iona Gaels (II.1, 33-13, TPI 157.8). So can anyone stop Alabama and their massive TSI? Can the Hof lead the Penguins to the title? Good luck to all!

November 25th, 2021 - Hahn to miss time with arm injury - UC Santa Barbara Gauchos
Following UCSB's 63-58 loss to Bucknell on Thursday, Gauchos head coach Deandre Ebert approached the media with an unforeseen revelation. Senior forward and team captain Jeff Hahn is expected to miss at least a week with forearm inflammation.

"We will re-evaluate his status in a week," Ebert explained, visibly unsettled at the prospect of losing his best player. "It was something that arose throughout the course of today's game."

The usually sturdy Hahn had played in 85 consecutive games for the Gauchos and has no prior history of injuries.

November 25th, 2021 - First Season for New President - Northern Colorado Bears
In the first game under the direction of President dcon and coach Joshua Schmidt, the Bears of Northern Colorado lost 79-77 against Susquehanna on a heartbreaking buzzer-beating 3-pointer by River Hawks point guard Caleb Clayton. However, this was a very good performance by the Bears, with 4 out of 5 starters scoring double-digit points and point guard Rafael Rodriguez racking up 9 points and 10 assists. The Bears shot a meager 51% from the field, but also 52% from beyond the arc, so there's still something to be proud of for this team. Next up on the non-conference schedule is Slippery Rock, but more importantly #20 Ohio comes after them, so we'll see how the Bears can hang with the best of the best in Hardwood.
