In praise of D-III hoops


It’s been a heart-rending week at The College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio.  Far-removed from the glitz and glamor of big-time D-I basketball, a story as compelling as you’ll get at Rupp Arena, MSG, or anywhere else.

Follow these links for a weepy moment or two.

A tough way to go into the league tournament.

Before beating Kenyon (sorry, Hoppe, y’all had no chance) 89-71.

Tonight, Wooster gutted out a 84-72 win over Wabash to cap the emotional week, and earn a berth in the NCAA Division III tournament..

If we’re (that would be Heather ‘n me) lucky, Wooster gets sent to a close-by locale next weekend for their NCAA D-III tournament opener.

Go Scots!

    Drat. They’re playing in Columbus, not Danville.

    I guess that’s much better for the team. But not for the Fighting Scots fans who live in KY.

    Oh well.
