Goin' Back to Salem!
The D3 Tournament was good to The Painted Area this weekend.
The alma mater, Amherst, is headed back to Salem, Va. for the Final Four for the third time in four years - hopefully this year will be the year we go all the way!
Also, I picked three of the Final Four teams correctly in my bracket on D3hoops.com - I'm sitting 38th of 825 overall... possibly with an outside chance of winning the grand prize of $0 if Amherst goes all the way. Yes, I am aware that this is arguably the most pathetic thing I've ever bragged about in my life!
Anyway, I just wanted to give D3Cast.com a shout-out - I find it reasonably amazing that I was able to watch both of Amherst's tournament games from across the country this weekend, thanks to the high-quality video webcasts that these folks put together.
Now, D3hoops.com will pick up the webcasting with live video of Friday's semifinals at the Salem Civic Center (home of the rodeo scene from Borat).
It should be good stuff - four of the top eight teams in the D3Hoops.com Top 25, including the defending champs from Va. Wesleyan:
6 p.m. ET: (#6) Amherst vs. (#2) Wooster
8 p.m. ET: (#4) Virginia Wesleyan vs. (#8) Washington U.
The national championship will be broadcast live on CSTV at 5 p.m. ET on Saturday.
