The 2018-19 season is officially underway and so is Hoopsville. While normally Dave McHugh would be coming to you live from the WBCA/NABC Studio, with the tip-off of the season also comes with it basketball games for Dave.

Thursday's show is a pre-taped preview of the upcoming season. Can either of the preseason number one teams stay on top the entire season? How many teams have a legitimate chance of playing for a national title? Who could possibly be sleepers or surprise? What games should fans be watching early on to get a sense of the season ahead?

The answers to those questions are completely different if you are talking men's or women's basketball. So, on Thursday's show Dave brings in colleagues to give the answers. Gordon Mann and Ryan Scott lend their opinions and insight on the season ahead.

Also, one of the more surprising coaching developments in the last year was the fact Hall of Fame, and former UConn, coach Jim Calhoun was throwing his hat in the DIII ring. We chat with him about why he decided to lead the St. Joseph's (Conn.) program and what to expect out of it's first season.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Thursday's edition is available to listen to in the player above or to the right.
