The ninth edition of our annual tournament in Las Vegas features the defending women's national champs, a men's Final Four team, a multiple-time national champion and 12 more teams. Here's the full set of pairings.
Friday night will be Wartburg's third game in the NCAA Tournament, but the Knights have been in playoff mode for weeks now. They had to win their final two regular season games just to make the IIAC tournament, and then win three there to reach the Big Dance. Ryan Scott catches up with the Knights on their Road to Salem.
It is a cliche, but it once again sums up the opening weekend of the DIII championship tournaments. Once again, craziness ensued and we were able to enjoy it. Sunday night on Hoopsville, Dave McHugh recaps the first 90 games, talks to some of the coaches making waves, and looks ahead to the Sectional Weekend. Watch it On Demand now!
Wartburg hit everything and bounced Benedictine, while Augustana hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to oust St. Thomas. And Amherst, a 2016 Final Four team, didn't make it to Saturday either. More in the men's roundup.
St. John's edged St. Thomas out of the MIAC tournament and perhaps out of the post season entirely. The bottom two teams in the IIAC tournament are the last two standing while the NWC women's tournament got off to a thrilling start.
Nebraska Wesleyan, the lone remaining dual member of the NAIA and NCAA Division III, is giving up its NAIA affiliation effective July 2016 and joining the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference that fall.

CEDAR FALLS – Wartburg College head coach Dick Peth has a barometer on his 2010-11 team. Following a hard-fought 67-46 exhibition defeat at the hands of NCAA Division I University of Northern Iowa Nov. 2, some of the measure was good.
