If you are interested in playing in the 2015 Classic next December, drop an email to or contact Sport Tours International.

There were 14 Division III basketball teams in Las Vegas this week at the Classic and we brought you all the action live from the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, with live video broadcasts, postgame interviews, photos and more.

It's the fifth annual Classic in Las Vegas, organized by SportTours International, and it features the return of Scranton's men's basketball team, which was scheduled to play in the 2010 event but was unable to do so because of east coast weather. This year, Scranton makes the trip as the No. 16 ranked team in the men's basketball Top 25. 

The women's tournament features top-ranked FDU-Florham, the defending national champion. We matched the Devils up with two members of the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, who have gotten off to a combined 14-6 start.

In addition to the live broadcasts, we conducted interviews with each of the 14 teams.

Hoopsville: Upsets & Tournaments We aren't even a week into the new season and there is already plenty to talk about. Dave talked to the new women's basketball committee chair, previewed a rare D1 at D3 game, took a look at the 4th Annual Hoopsville National Invitational Classic at Stevenson University, plus much more in an extended edition of Hoopsville is is On Demand! Classic 2014 pairings The defending women's national champion, two 20-win men's teams are among the 14 teams spanning from Maine to Oregon converging on Las Vegas for the 2014 Classic.

Day 3: Cabrini shows it can still compete Cabrini came into the season looking to compete against some of best teams in Division III. With the Cavaliers' win over WPI at the Hoopsville Classic, the team is succeeding so far under new coach Tim McDonald and All-American Aaron Walton-Moss.

Day 2: WPI outslugs Chicago at Hoopsville Classic No. 12 WPI and Chicago battled into overtime where the Engineers won a back-and-forth affair that felt like a boxing match. Plus Gwynedd-Mercy downed Mary Hardin-Baylor and Randolph-Macon cruised past Wittenberg.

Roberts' Classic record leads Stevenson The lights dimmed as Stevenson was introduced as if a show, not a basketball game, was about to begin at the Hoopsville National Invitational Classic. In fact, both occurred on Friday as the Mustangs defeated Wittenberg 75-65.
