September 23rd, 2021 - Joy in Mankato – Mavericks Wins!
After a closed game against South Florida in the semifinals, Minnesota State had a relatively easy time in the finals defeating the College of New Rochelle Blue Angels 73-51. Ira Shaver took advantage of the undersized Blue Angel bigs, scoring 16 points and 11 rebounds. The Mavericks defense was also strong denying the passing lanes limiting their opponents to only 8 assists while forcing 6 steals. Congratulations to Mattysota and the Minnesota State Mavericks on their first national title! Also, congratulations to JPBren and the Ashland Eagles (Division II tournament winners) and to zachyarbrough1 and the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs (Division III tournament winners).

September 21st, 2021 - Final Four
Four teams remain which means it’s the Final Four yet again! This season all the teams are from lower conferences – one from level II and the balance from level III. In our first semi-final game the #5 seeded College of New Rochelle Blue Angels (III.3, 37-8, TPI 154.4) will face off with the #4 seeded Lewis & Clark Pioneers (II.2, 37-10, TPI 156.9). In the other semi-final game, it’s the #6 seeded South Florida Bulls (III.2, 38-8, TPI 156.4) going up against with the #7 seeded Minnesota State Mavericks (III.1, 38-10, TPI 153.1). Four mid-seated teams, should be a very competitive semifinals and finals. Good luck to all!

September 27th, 2021 - The Deft Leopards Poised to Pounce - Abridged - La Verne Leopards
It has been three seasons since Baggins took over as president, and yet the Leopards have not been able to escape the lowest league level in Hardwood. However the fans have been given reason to hope. The team rating has risen each year. RPI has risen, rank and TPI have risen, and most importantly, wins have risen each year as well.

September 26th, 2021 - Penguins Reach Tippy Top of Hardwood Iceberg - Dominican Univ. of California Penguins
“I was hired back in 2013,” started President gards710. “I looked at Legends and could only dream that I could lead a program to that level. That day has come. It is truly a dream come true."

Coming off a second place finish behind Bentley in II.1, the Penguins have reached the peak, entering the top conference in Hardwood, known as Legends. Entering the 2022 season, Dominican returns an experienced roster loaded with talent at the top and a developing core underneath (see below for more detailed PR).

This is a new test for Dominican. But the past three seasons have been too. And each time, they have succeeded. But is this just a lucky streak? After all, it remains to be seen if Dominican can sustain this level of play for several years like programs like Huntington, North Greenville, Tennessee, UCLA, and other mainstays in Legends. Only time will tell. And it starts in 2021!
