Last year, the team of Division III alumni which played in the made-for-TV The Basketball Tournament had a trip to remember, other than the final 18 minutes to forget. This year, a new group of nine players is set to take on one of the top seeds in the tournament.
Harrison Blackledge can add one more award to his resume as the Hope senior is the Great Lakes Region Player of the Year. Jon Miller of Hanover is Coach of the Year and Marcus Demspey of Muskingum is Rookie of the Year, as part of ourD3hoops.com 2016-17 men's All-Great Lakes Region team.
It was a rough night for second seeds in the conference playoffs. Muskingum upset John Carroll, NJCU topped TCNJ and the Staten Island women stopped Lehman. Plus the CCIW's zany regular season came to a fitting end.
The Muskingum University men's basketball team continues to chase history as they moved to 5-0 overall after knocking off Ohio Athletic Conference preseason favorite John Carroll to claim the programs best start since the 1972-73 season.
Members of the Ohio Athletic Conference and North Coast Athletic Conference are teaming up this week to raise funds and raise cancer awareness during Suits and Sneakers Week to honor Capital men’s basketball coach Damon Goodwin.
