Awesome overtime endings
Three of Saturday night's regional finals were so good, they needed extra time to finish them.

What We're Reading

  • »Boston's academic powers become hoops talents
  • With a struggling Celtics team and relatively unexciting prospects on the college level, Boston appears to offer little for basketball fans hoping to latch onto a local winner this winter. Maybe they should turn to Division III.
  • »D-I eyes 2016 for combined Final Four
  • While much remains to be done to coordinate having all three women's basketball championship divisions participate at the same site, the committee endorsed this taking place as early as 2016 in Indianapolis.
  • »NCAA Tournament will be lengthy
  • David Hixon, the coach of second-ranked Amherst, had mixed emotions when he saw the draw for the Division III men?s basketball tournament, which begins Saturday.
