What We're Reading

  • »Connections lead assistants to Williams
  • Williams men's basketball coach Mike Maker freely admits he didn't know Derek Johnston or Scott Day personally before he hired them as his assistants for the 2012-13 season.
  • »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.
