Not sweating the small (school) stuff

We are quickly learning that it will be impossibly time-consuming to be comprehensive about the D-II and D-II hoops.

Too many of thge little papers that cover the small school stuff do not update their sites until later in the day, and even then, it is hit or miss finding stories.

We will try to highlight the local D-II and D-III teams as possible, but no promises. Susquehanna (D-III) and Bloomsburg (D-II) get pretty good coverage from the Sunbury Daily Item. We'd like to have Lycoming coverage, since Don Friday is a former Bucknell assistant and a good friend of Hoop Time's, but the Williamsport paper's Web site is a train wreck. Ditto for Scranton, where another former BU assistant, Carl Danzig, who once helped the Hoop Time 3-on-3 team to the championship of the semi-prestigious Shikellamy Blacktop Basketball tournament, is now head coach.

We'll do what we can, but we are not going to spend all day looking for D-II and D-II stuff.

That said, here's what we found this morning:

Bloomsburg 81, Roberts Wesleyan 61 -- Consolation win has Terry Conrad feeling better about his young squad. He told The Daily Item:

"January and February are going to be good months for us if we keep building day by day"

York 86, Elmira 57 -- Coverage from the York Daily Record
