June 18th, 2024 - Friars Persona Non Grata - Providence Friars
Fresh off the heels of their conference tourney opener, a convincing 83-34 victory over Dallas-Baptist, the Friars were slapped with an injunction. The Board of Governers for Division 2 and the Board of Regents for Conference V15 have requested that Providence College be denied admission into any Division 2 conference. The thrust of their argument is that in over 25 seasons the Friars have strictly been a Division 3 program and should stay where they belong.

June 18th, 2024 - Disappointing End to a Strong Season - Christopher Newport Captains
It was a disappointing exit for CNU in the Conference Tournament, losing 75-61 to a hardy Depaul team that made their shots count when they needed to.

Second year head coach Richard Rowan attempted to balance the disappointment with additional perspective.

"We always want to win, period. There's also something to gain in every loss."

CNU will need those gains as they prepare to promote into the 3rd tier for the first time in school history, extending their first-ever consecutive season stay in Division 1.

"This team has a lot to be proud of. We ran out of gas at the end of the season and I believe it showed in the performance. We all know in this Hardwood universe that *beep* happens, so we'll keep working on our game and our moment will come."

June 18th, 2024 - Heart Attack Hornets Explode In 2nd Half Again, Advance to QFs - Kalamazoo Hornets
Down by 20, won by 2 in 3OT. Down by 2, won by 16. Up by 1, won by 11. Down by 9, won by 14 in OT. Down by 1, won by 2. In the past 13 games, Kalamazoo had 5 2nd half surges to get key wins. Now you can add a 6th, as the Hornets somehow found a way to stay alive in the IV.6 postseason, beating Bucknell 85-82 after being down 18 at the half and as much as 20 early in the 2nd.

"We've just learned how to take it one possession, one stop at a time. We kept at it. They did a good job getting key baskets for a while, and it would have been easy to give up. But our seniors deserve the chance to play more meaningful basketball," POTG Bob Slone told reporters after the game.

Up next is a rubber match against a recently #21 St Joseph's squad, with the winner heading to the conference semis.
