News Releases

June 23, 2018 ATN: From the court to the sidelines While most of our athletes "go pro in something other than sports," a few make the jump to a professional basketball career. Olivia Lett and Aaron Toomey join us on this month's podcast to talk about their journey from D3 player to pro player to D3 coach.
February 16, 2018 Turnaround is fair play Amherst and Wooster are perennial powers that dropped off the national radar after slow starts. Claremont-Mudd-Scripps entered the season highly ranked, then lost seven of its first 10 games. As we head down the stretch toward the NCAA Tournament, all three have played themselves back into the postseason picture. Ryan Scott has the story in Around the Nation.
February 10, 2018 Mammoth weekend includes Hixon milestone Amherst started the weekend two games out of first in the NESCAC and finished it with hosting rights for the upcoming playoffs. The Mammoths followed Friday's win over Williams by beating No. 5 Middlebury, and David Hixon picked up his 800th win in the process.
February 10, 2018 Men: Seven ranked teams upset Saturday afternoon Wittenberg? No longer unbeaten. Middlebury? Fell again. MIT? Still reeling. Plus Swarthmore went down in double overtime, Lyco lost its third in four games, York fell at home and the top 10 didn't agree with Eastern Connecticut so much. More in the wrapup.
February 1, 2018 5th Annual Hoopsville Marathon It was the annual Hoopsville Marathon ... scheduled for 12-hours ... finished at 14-hours. Dave was joined by coaches, student-athletes, administrators, and other guests from around the country to not only prepare for the final month of the regular season, but also celebrate what makes the division and sport so great. Watch all, or any part, that you may have missed On Demand here.
November 27, 2017 Men's Top 25 poll released A chaotic start to the season results in a very different looking Top 25 compared to the preseason poll. Nine teams exit the rankings and are replaced by mainstays, like Whitworth, Amherst and Wooster. How far did the defending champs fall? How many NESCAC teams are ranked? Find out here.
