This isn't a D3 item, but I just noticed it today and it's too amusing to not share. Up in D1, CSU Fullerton has a roster of twelve international recruits, all from Italy. I'm not even Italian, but that coach is my hero.
Bridgewater 70 #4 Lynchburg 81
Here's some laser-like basketball analysis from me: scoring four less points in the second half while allowing seven more points will not bring you good results if you were tied at halftime. Lynchburg stayed perfect on the year after falling a few points back after the break and then going on a mini-run after the halfway point of the second half to slowly pull away. Bridgewater fell despite shooting over 80% from the free throw line on 29 attempts, counter-acted by Lynchburg shooting just shy of 80% on 48 attempts.
: #2 Kenyon cruised past Oberlin 68-44, #8 Palm Beach Atlantic used a big second half to down Piedmont 76-51, #9 Stillman got past Southwestern 77-63, Ohio Wesleyan scored a close home upset over #25 Wooster 67-64, #13 S.Vermont pulled away from Norwich 83-66, #19 Dallas edged Ozarks 63-59, Louisiana upset Hendrix 85-68, and #20 Wittenberg took care of Grove City at home 67-54.

: Similar spreads resulted in similarly easy covers: Redlands fell to #10 Whittier 50-80 while Thiel was defeated by #6 Earlham 55-75.
: Webster 88 Dominican 71. The Gorlok never gives you a chance.
#7 Emory (10-1)(jojoe) at #9 Stillman (12-0)(swany623)
A really nice cross-divisional game between top ten opponents over in the University conference tonight. Stillman has obviously won their first two conference games while Emory won their first followed by an early night off. Both teams are in for brutal divisional races in the crazy-competitive U so wins against ranked teams can be huge. jojoe has won both meetings between the coaches and his teams if favored by 1 on the road.
: Christopher Newport at #5 North Carolina Wesleyan, Rivier at #13 S.Vermont, Utica at #16 Vassar, #19 Dallas at Trinity, Newbury at #21 Suffolk, and #23 Millsaps at Southwestern

: Three spreads in the 40's tonight: Millikin getting 45 at #17 Northland, Thiel with 43 hosting #25 Wooster, and Arcadia as a 41 point road dog at #22 Babson.
Mount St. Mary (7-5)(ftbeaglesfan) at Stevens Tech (9-3)(dbx4j)
An early important game over in the Skyline conference as the top two non-Merchant Marines teams play their cross-divisional game for the season. Both teams need quality wins to beef up their post-season resumes so the loser here will rue the lost opportunity. This is the first meeting between these two and the odds-makers have it as an even pick.
