Scores are primarily sent to us by schools' Sports Information Directors. At some schools the coaches are the ones that end up reporting to us. Ones that aren't reported we search for on teams' Web sites, or local newspapers' sites. If, as a fan, you want to report a score that we don't have posted, you'll need to send us the URL of a site like we described above so that we can confirm the score before posting it.
Unless you see someone's byline at the top of a story, it was a press release provided to us by the school's sports information office. Some schools are very good at writing a fair, balanced account of a game, while others simply highlight themselves, win or lose. In the rare event that both schools send game stories, we will try to edit the two together or use elements of both to provide the most balanced coverage possible. In rare events we will consider a game story so unbalanced that we will not print it. We find that truly sad.
Currently, the standings update for a school whenever a team or a D3hoops.com staffer submits a score.
Standings -- and all gameday info -- are now managed by Prestosports.com. Corrected scores reflect themselves in the standings immediately.
RSS (sometimes known as Really Simple Syndication) is a format for syndicating news. It allows readers get information about when updated information is available. RSS feeds contain headlines and hyperlinks to longer articles or Web pages. D3hoops.com and D3football.com will be offering RSS feeds in the near future.
