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.
