What We're Reading

  • »Jay Wright relives Rochester years
  • Villanova's coach remembers who gave him his first college coaching job, and that was Mike Neer at the University of Rochester.
  • »CMU frosh grows along with program
  • Jacquie Hullah arrived at CMU following a season in which the team went 2-23. Now the Tartans, 13-13 last year, are using phrases like "conference title" and "NCAA Tournament," and Lisa Murphy has been a big part of that.
  • »Davis lighting up court at Emory
  • Jake Davis has film school in his sights, but not before he tries to get Emory back to the NCAA Tournament.
  • »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.
