NCAA Regionals – A Recap

While the main event (Elite 8) is upon us, let us not forget that there were 16 teams prior to that battling it out for a chance to be there.  Before that, 32, and before that, 43. All of these teams stories are important to what makes DIII, and while the Blog views some of…

2017 NCAA Regional Preview: Chicago Region

Welcome back for the next and final central region preview. Before I dive into the teams, a couple of quick notes. First, although this post is titled “Chicago Region,” the region is being hosted by Gustavus Adolphus, but Chicago is the #1 seed. Next, the top 4 seeds have played in the same region the past…

RAPID REACTION: 2017 NCAA BRACKET

NCAA BRACKET RAPID REACTION ROUNDTABLE Nothing like a little rapid reaction roundtable from the bloggers to continue our NCAA week. If you missed the Live Blog earlier today, you missed something special. While we encourage you to go through the text from what basically turned into a public/slower version of our group chat, we also…

Bracketology #4: The Final Countdown

The final regular-season ball has been struck, the results are in, and the selection committee is doubtlessly hard at work trying to come up with a fair bracket. I’m not sure if this recommendation is coming too late, but I would like to remind coaches to put in bids to host, even if they’re not…

Power Rankings, 5/4

I’ve spent most of my morning listening to the podcast with AVZ and Coach Browning of Emory, which is why these Power Rankings are going out a little bit late. If you would like to listen to the podcast, which you should, feel free to click the link below. Power Rankings aren’t going anywhere. Van…

POTW: 04/24-04/30

REGIONAL PLAYERS OF THE WEEK: 04/24-04/30 Happy Monday, boys and girls. Just one week left until Selection Monday and the debate over the final Pool-C spot rages on. I was recently thinking about just how much time each of the writers still devote to DIII tennis (let’s be honest, at this point we’re no longer…

UW-Whitewater vs. Coe Preview

As we’ve written and talked about extensively, there is a lot of conversation about who should receive the final Pool B spot and final Pool C spot. Right now, UW-Whitewater and UC-Santa Cruz are fighting for the Pool B bid, and some believe that if UW-Whitewater defeats Coe on Sunday, the spot is theirs. This is…

4/27 Power Rankings

Another edition of Power Rankings are here, and this week we FINALLY had some movement in the Top 10! With a ton of upsets (check the ticker bruh!) this past week as well as the UAA Tournament completing, the top 10 got shuffled around a bit. We had a huge upset that we were able…

Van Zee’s Vault: Podcast with Coach Frank Barnes about Pool B

It was quite a weekend with exciting UAA and NESCAC results. It seems the #AVZBoost is alive and well which should be enough motivation for any coach to want to jump on a podcast with me. I am slowly getting through the list of volunteers, but sadly I doubt I will get to you all…

A Look at the Singles and Doubles ITA Rankings with D3RegionalNEC

Much like the teams we cover, we have our ups and downs. I admittedly was not as active on twitter or with new articles as I have been, and for that I apologize. Behind the scenes things are still getting done (like three hour Skype calls with other writers), so don’t fret. Besides, I’m here now,…
