DIII seedings just announced. YU makes the DIII NCAA Tournament for the second time in its history. First round game at Hopkins vs Worcester Polytechnic. If they win, the second round game is vs winner of Hopkins - Penn St. Harrisburg.

The only other year they made the national tournament (2018) they played a friday game in Western PA.

The host of the selection show said that with the Jewish community in Baltimore this could turn into a home game for YU.

The tournament is a national tournament so yes, there are games played on Shabbos. But Yeshiva plays their first game at 1 PM on Friday in Baltimore and the potential second round game is a TBD because they know that YU are shomrei shabbos and they wont schedule them to play on Shabbos.

In fact every single second round game has a scheduled start time except for YU's potential second round game. I believe that is because if they get to the second round they would make it an 8 PM start time motzei shabbos, but if they are not in then the game would be an afternoon game.

YU wins the 1st game 102-78 and awaits the winner of Johns Hopkins-Penn State Harrisburg to be played Motzei Shabbos.

Game was played to an empty gym as Hopkins banned all fans due to an outbreak in Maryland.

Sweet 16 game is Friday 2pm. Unclear if macslive will broadcast live with video or if the host team will have the video broadcast like Hopkins did.

Ashland is only 20 minutes away from Richmond which has a decent sized frum community. I wonder if they try to stay there for Shabbos.

It has to do with how much you pay the NCAA in fees (div 1 more; div 3 less), levels of boosters,  and what benefits you can offer to the athletes. for instance, YU cannot offer athletic based scholarships or other perks that d1 schools can. Methods of travel to games have varying restrictions. So Duke fly's in luxurious planes and stays in 5 star hotels; YU fly's economy and stays in 3 star hotels.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Division I schools:

Offer at least 14 sports: seven for men and seven for women, or six for men and eight for women
Offer at least two team sports for men and two for women
Can guarantee an audience of a specific size for football and basketball
Provide some athletic scholarships. Division I schools have to meet minimum financial aid awards for their athletics program, but there is a cap on financial aid awards for each sport.
Have enough games to fit each sport's requirements
Require students to maintain a certain GPA and take at least 16 core courses for eligibility

Division II schools:

Have a minimum of 10 sports
Offer five each for men and women or four men's and six women's plus two team sports each
Have enough games to fit each sport's requirements
Require students to maintain a 2.0 GPA and take at least 16 core courses to be eligible

NCAA Division III
Division III schools don't offer scholarships or financial aid to athletes for athletic participation, though athletes are still eligible for scholarships offered to any students who apply. Division III schools have at least five men's and five women's sports, including at least two team sports for each.

In short, yes, to keep the games competitive they have 3 divisions and each division has rules to keep it balanced. The longer answers are above.

Correct. Almost no players in Division 3 could make a bench spot on Division 1 teams
