What We're Reading

  • »D.C. players get last shot at Southern Vermont
  • Each has a story to tell, their careers long since sidetracked before coach Dan Engelstad offered them a second chance. He didn't sell NBA dreams, just the opportunity to put on a jersey a few more times and earn a college degree in the process.
  • »Southern Vermont has big dreams
  • Dan Engelstad is a recruiter, through and through. So when he accepted the head coaching job for the Southern Vermont College men's basketball team, he got to work recruiting his coaching staff.
  • »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.
