Visiting Case Western Reserve University held the University of Rochester scoreless over the final 3:23 and went on to a 75-72 victory over the sixth-ranked Yellowjackets at the Louis Alexander Palestra on Sunday afternoon. It was just the third loss of the year for the Yellowjackets (21-3 overall, 10-3 University Athletic Association) and it determined the UAA playoff race. Washington University defeated Brandeis, 95-91, in Waltham, MA on Sunday to clinch the UAA title and automatic bid. Washington is 12-1 with one game left. Rochester and Washington swapped road victories this season. Rochester has been ranked number one in the East Region by the NCAA Division III Men's Basketball Committee for the first two polls. The third poll will be issued this Wednesday. UR finishes the regular season at Emory University in Atlanta. Emory is fourth in the UAA with an 8-5 mark (17-7 overall). The Eagles are trying to earn a Pool C (at-large) invitation to the NCAA tournament. A win over Rochester might accomplish that. This victory was the third win in the last four games for Case (8-16, 3-10 UAA). Colin Zucker (6'0''-PG) scored 27 points and grabbed seven rebounds. He hit six three-pointers in 15 attempts. Connor Nally (6'5''-F) hit five of 11 outside the arc enroute to 19 points. He grabbed eight rebounds. Javier Alvarez had 13 points for Case to go with seven rebounds, three assists, and four steals. As a team, Case broke the Palestra record for three-point attempts. The Spartans made 13 in 46 tries. CWRU held the previous record of 41 attempts - set last season. Rochester made only four treys in 24 shots. CWRU hit the boards hard and it paid off. The Spartans collected 19 offensive rebounds and turned those into 23 second-chance points. Case held a 45-41 overall edge on the glass. Jacob Wittig scored 20 points for Rochester. Zack Ayers (6'10''-F) had 16 points. Sam Borst-Smith (6'3''-G) scored 14, and Ryan Clamage (6'4''-G) had 11. The Yellowjackets couldn't string together any offensive consistency. Their longest scoring outburst was eight points - two free throws apiece by Mack Montague (6'3''-G) and Borst-Smith, a reverse layup by Wittig, and a backdoor layup by Andrew Lundstrom (6'6''-F). It put UR up, 50-48. Zucker scored five points in 26 seconds. He swished a three-pointer from right wing to restore the lead (51-50) and added two free throws after a Lundstrom foul for a 53-50 lead with 13:35 on the clock. Neither team could get more than a two or three-point edge over the last 13 minutes. Zucker's sixth three-pointer came with 4:33 left. He missed an attempt, got his own rebound, worked his way outside the arc on left wing and connected this time. It broke a 67-all tie. Rochester used two free throws from Wittig and a three-pointer by Borst-Smith to take a 72-70 lead with 3:23 left. Alvarez drilled a three-pointer with 3:04 left (73-72 Case) and after Montague missed a jumper for Rochester, Nally grabbed two big rebounds. He collected the defensive board. When Zucker missed a layup, Nally fought for the rebound and the followup, 75-72 with 2:30 left. After a series of misses at both ends, Zucker made the front end of a two-shot foul for the 76-72 lead with 17 seconds left. Rochester missed two more three-point shots. Alvarez collected the second one and was fouled with five seconds remaining. He missed the one-and-one with 0:01 on the clock, but it didn't matter. Courtesy of: d3hoops.com

After more than two decades, the Division III men's basketball championship will call some place other than the Salem (Va.) Civic Center home, starting in 2019. The NCAA announced the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum, in Fort Wayne, Ind., will be the host for NCAA Division III men's basketball national semifinals and national chanpionship games in 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022. The NCAA announced the host site for all of Division III's championships through the end of the 2021-2022 athletic season. Three separate sites will host the Division III women's basketball championship game. Salem has hosted the national semifinals every year since 1996 and hosted the national championship every year but 2013 when all three Divisions played their national title game in Atlanta. The 2017-18 national semifinals and championship game will be played in the Salem Civic Center before the move takes effect the following season. The Salem Civic Center is part of the James E. Taliaferro Sports and Entertainment Complex, along with Salem Stadium which has hosted the NCAA Division III football national championship game every year since 1993. The Stagg Bowl will played one more time in Salem in December 2018 before it moves to Shenandoah, Texas, for two years. The Civic Center, which opened in October 1967, seats around 5,000 for basketball. The move will likely separate national championship weekend from the Jostens Trophy award ceremony, which has traditionally taken place on Thursday of championship weekend. The Jostens Trophy is administered by the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) and given out by the Salem Rotary Club to one player from Division III men's basketball and one from Division III women's basketball in honor of excellence on the court, in the classroom and in the community.
