Adrian College athletics director Mike Duffy has announced that Adrian alumnus Kyle Lindsay is the 28th head coach in the history of the Bulldog men's basketball program. Lindsay began his duties on August 22. "We are very excited to welcome Kyle Lindsay back to Adrian College as the men's basketball head coach," Duffy said. "We look forward to seeing Kyle build upon the foundation that was established by Mark White and watch the program take the next step. "During the interview process Kyle impressed me with his extensive knowledge of the Adrian College men's basketball program." Frank Hribar, Vice President of Enrollment and Student Affairs added, "Coach Lindsay has demonstrated a very deep appreciation for the solid program he is inheriting; and at the same time, he has quickly developed a vision for how he expects the Adrian College Men's basketball program to grow immediately. He is a thoughtful recruiter and will lead our program very competently into the future." Prior to accepting the head coaching position with the Bulldogs, Lindsay helped lead Trine to five consecutive appearances in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association semifinal round, making it to its first MIAA championship game appearance in 2016, first NCAA Division III national ranking (#23) and a winning record during all five years he was on the Thunder's coaching staff. Lindsay was an assistant coach for the Trine men's basketball program since 2011 where he helped the development of five First Team All-MIAA athletes. Those five athletes included the 2013 MIAA Player of the Year and Third-Team All-American Ian Jackson and Jared Holmquist who was a 2016 CoSIDA Academic All-American Player of the Year and a two-time First Team All-MIAA selection in 2015 and 2016. "I'm thrilled to return to my alma mater," said Lindsay. "I am grateful for the opportunity given to me by President Docking, Mike Duffy and the search committee. "I am fortunate to take over a program that was left in great shape by Mark White and we are committed to building on the tradition and success of bulldog basketball." The Toledo, Ohio, native spent the 2010-11 season as an assistant coach at Illinois College where he helped the men's basketball team finish with the best season for the program in 33 years with a mark of 16-8 overall. The 2009 graduate started his coaching career at Ottawa Hills High School where he spent two seasons as an assistant coach for the varsity boys' basketball team. The Green Bears achieved a winning record and were conference champions during his tenure. Lindsay earned a bachelor's degree in physical education from the College. While a student-athlete, he played football for four years and basketball for one. He was named a First Team All-MIAA punter in 2005. Courtesy of: adrianbulldogs.com

Joey Flannery (6'5''-G) blocked a potential game-winning shot with three seconds left and Babson held off Augustana 79-78 to win the 2017 Division III men's basketball championship. As Augustana did in Friday's semifinal, the Vikings opened the game with hot shooting and built a 10-point lead on Dylan Sortillo's three-pointer midway through the first period. Nick Comenale (6'3''-F) sparked a 25-5 run for Babson with a pair of three pointers and a layup and the Beavers took a 41-31 lead into the half. Babson held Augustana at arm's length for much of the second half and led 71-61 with six minutes to play when the Vikings started their rally. Nolan Ebel (6'1''-G) hit a three-pointer with less than three minutes left to pull the Vikings within four at 79-75. After a couple of empty possessions for both teams, Augustana fouled Babson with 21 seconds left, sending the Beavers to the free throw line for one-and one. They missed the first shot and Augustana grabbed the rebound and found Jacob Johnston for three to cut the lead to 79-78 with 10 seconds left. Babson again missed the front end of a one-and-one and the Vikings gave the ball to Ebel who raced down the floor. Ebel tried to arc a shot over three Babson defenders with three seconds left but Flannery smacked the ball away. Babson grabbed the rebound and was fouled with one second left. Babson missed the one-and-one again but, after an Augustana time out, the Vikings only had time for a long heave down the floor that was deflected away. Flannery finished with 23 points, which gives him 2,620 in his career, good enough for eighth place all-time in Division III. Isaiah Nelsen scored 10 of his 18 points in the second half and Comenale finished with 16 points for Babson. Ebel notched 20 points, seven rebounds and five assists for Augustana (24-9). Augustana finishes as national runner-up for the second time in three seasons. Babson's championship is the first men's basketball title for the College and the fifth overall in team sports. Babson won three titles in men's soccer in 1975, 1979 and 1980 and a men's hockey championship in 1984. Flannery, who was named Player of the Year before the game, took home the Most Oustanding Player award. The other members of the All-Tournament team were Nelsen, Ebel, Chrishawn Orange (6'2''-G) for Augustana and Daniel Aronowitz (6'5''-G) for Williams. Before the title game, the East All-Stars defeated the West All-Stars 139-116 in the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Reece's Division III All-Star Game. Courtesy of: d3hoops.com
