This Week In West: Team Recaps and A Tribute To Seniors

Tennis fans, it’s been a great season. A West region team won the national championship for the first time since 2009, when a senior-laden Hansen-led team got hot on the doubles court and swept their way to a national championship. This Middlebury team looked to do the same after sweeping the Tigers, but the Stags were…

A Belated NCAA Recap – ASwizz Style

Well, well, well. We meet again. I’m surprised that I haven’t gotten more callouts from the guys about not having as many articles as possible out, but I guess most of the players are busy graduating or at least celebrating graduation with their friends.  Funny how that works, the more time they have, the less…

5/12 Power Rankings (M)

Steph Curry with the shot, boi. We have heaps of NCAA coverage coming to you for the next week on the Blog, but we decided to take the past couple of days slow because there’s a lot to come.  I hope you understand.  Anyways, we’ll start off quarterfinals NCAA coverage with our weekly dose of…

Well, this is a day late because yesterday was no normal Tuesday.  Instead, you guys get the benefit of viewing the power rankings on #HumpDay, which is one of my favorite days. We have a lot of NCAA stuff to get out, so I’ll make this quick – latest results, power rankings, and some short…

This Week In West: Trinity and CMS Regional Previews

Good Evening, ladies and germs! The bracket is out, and it seems, given the circumstances, everyone is relatively happy with the result! Each #1 seed has been paired with a top 22 #2 seed, which is pretty remarkable considering the fact that 8 top 25 teams didn’t even make the tournament (including 4 in what…

The FINAL Bracketologies

It’s NCAA eve everyone! I’ve been living my life this weekend (shoutout to Quaz), but I’m here because we HAVE to get you at least one final bracketology for all of your reading goodness.  I know it’s late for some of you (D3Central in particular), but I also know that many of the players have…

Bracketology Edition #3B

Well, well, well.  Look who’s back for some more bracketology.  I gave you the first scenarios in an earlier article today, basically outlining things that could happen if Kenyon and Chicago took the #1 seeds in the NCAA instead of Bowdoin.  Those presented some interesting scenarios and commenters have a lot of questions for us…

Bracketology Edition #3a – Scenario Work!

DI Men’s and Women’s tennis had their NCAA announcements yesterday and I must say I was pretty jealous.  They even get their own show?! Meanwhile, here in DIII, the people rely on us to give them their most updated information. And I only have 600 followers. What has the world come to? Anyways, I promised…
