Welcome back to the Daily Dive segment. For those of you who are new to the site, this segment is a daily deep dive into the news and notes around men’s and women’s basketball. This includes some game recaps, top performers and milestones or records. The NAIA Daily Dive is your one stop shop in keeping up with NAIA basketball.

- We also have a new segment for this year with our Game of the Week. Generally, these will be posted on Sunday’s, but with the opening week starting on Thursday, and the rankings being released yesterday, we held off until last night to post them!
- We had a bit of a setback with some tech issues on the website. So, some of the items we post before the season starts got cancelled as we were unable to find the bug and our posts weren’t posting to the website. We finally were able to use our tech support to find the issue and it has helped to speed up the site again! We also ask that you be patient with us with our new Advertisement service. We will be updating those placements soon, to make the site look better and be more user friendly.
