Our sponsors and your support keep this site operating

The 2009-10 season was the 15th season we've been on the Web, believe it or not. Our group has been running the site for 13 seasons. That's a long time in Internet years. We've been committed to Division III basketball for a mighty long time.

We were called Division III Basketball Online for the first four seasons. We chose our new name,, on July 10, 1999, to match our partner site,, launched the same month. The site has been featured in Sports Illustrated, ESPN Magazine, and the Wall Street Journal, among other publications. Our experts have been used by CSTV (remember CSTV?) and clips of our broadcasts have been on ESPN.
